This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in January of 2019. The Whole30 program aims to ensure weight loss, better sleep, more energy, and healthy habits. Success stems from finding recipes that work for your palette, budget, and lifestyle. Each of the cookbooks on our list will teach you to prepare main courses and sides with high-quality meats, seafood, eggs, vegetables, and fruit, while avoiding no-nos, like sugar, alcohol, legumes, and dairy. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Building PCs, remodeling, and cooking since he was young, quasi-renowned trumpeter Christopher Thomas traveled the USA performing at and organizing shows from an early age. His work experiences led him to open a catering company, eventually becoming a sous chef in several fine LA restaurants. He enjoys all sorts of barely necessary gadgets, specialty computing, cutting-edge video games, and modern social policy. He has given talks on debunking pseudoscience, the Dunning-Kruger effect, culinary technique, and traveling. After two decades of product and market research, Chris has a keen sense of what people want to know and how to explain it clearly. He delights in parsing complex subjects for anyone who will listen -- because teaching is the best way to ensure that you understand things yourself.
