Now, Dallas and Melissa detail not just the "how" of the Whole30, but also the "why," summarizing the science in a simple, accessible manner.

More important, they outline their lifelong strategy for eating Good Food in one clear and detailed action plan designed to help you create a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, calm systemic inflammation, and put an end to unhealthy cravings, habits, and relationships with food.

Infused with the Hartwigs' signature wit, tough love, and common sense, "It Starts With Food" is based on the latest scientific research and real-life experience, and includes testimonials, a detailed shopping guide, a meal-planning template, a Meal Map with creative, delicious recipes, and much more.

About the Author

Melissa Hartwig was born in Nashua, NH, and was an East Coast girl until moving to Salt Lake City, UT with her husband Dallas in 2010. She quit the highest paying job she'll ever have in April of that year to found Whole9 (), an online health and fitness community. Since then, the Whole9 (and their Whole30 program) have grown to serve over 500,000 visitors per month, and Melissa once again has health insurance.

It Starts With Food is Melissa's first book, although she writes many of the original articles featured on the Whole9 blog. She is a Certified Sports Nutritionist through the International Society of Sports Nutrition, and is working towards a Master's degree in Health and Nutrition Education from Hawthorn University. She coaches kettlebells as an RKC certified kettlebell instructor, and travels extensively both for fun and for Whole9's nutrition seminars.

Dallas Hartwig earned a BS in Anatomy and Physiology and an MS in Physical Therapy from Andrews University, and has been a licensed physical therapist since 2001. He co-owned and operated a strength and conditioning facility with Melissa until founding Whole9 in November 2009. He is a Certified Sports Nutritionist through the International Society of Sports Nutrition and an RKC-certified kettlebell instructor.

Dallas is originally from beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Although he now lives with his wife Melissa in Salt Lake City, Utah, if you listen carefully, you can still hear him drop an "eh?" from time to time.
