The​ ​Whole30​ ​was​ ​developed​ ​by​ ​respected​ ​health​ ​professionals.​ ​However,​ ​Whole30​ ​isn’t​ ​a medical​ ​organization​ ​and​ ​we​ ​can’t​ ​give​ ​you​ ​medical​ ​advice,​ ​treat​ ​you​ ​for​ ​any​ ​medical​ ​condition, or​ ​provide​ ​any​ ​specific​ ​recommendations​ ​relating​ ​to​ ​your​ ​medical​ ​condition.​ ​We​ ​strongly​ ​urge you​ ​to​ ​consult​ ​with​ ​your​ ​physician,​ ​primary​ ​health-care​ ​provider,​ ​and/or​ ​a​ ​Registered​ ​Dietitian before​ ​starting​ ​any​ ​dietary​ ​or​ ​lifestyle​ ​plan.

We​ ​also​ ​urge​ ​you​ ​to​ ​get​ ​periodic​ ​medical​ ​checkups.​ ​The​ ​Whole30​ ​can​ ​create​ ​physical​ ​changes that​ ​should​ ​be​ ​medically​ ​monitored.​ ​Medical​ ​monitoring​ ​is​ ​especially​ ​important​ ​for​ ​people​ ​with​ ​a known​ ​medical​ ​condition,​ ​pregnant​ ​or​ ​breastfeeding​ ​women,​ ​or​ ​those​ ​on​ ​prescription medication.​ ​The​ ​Whole30​ ​is​ ​not​ ​advised​ ​for​ ​those​ ​with​ ​a​ ​history​ ​of​ ​disordered​ ​eating,​ ​unless administered​ ​under​ ​the​ ​care​ ​of​ ​a​ ​trained​ ​counselor.​ ​The​ ​Whole30​ ​is​ ​healthful,​ ​but​ ​isn’t​ ​intended to​ ​treat​ ​any​ ​illness​ ​or​ ​disease.

In​ ​addition:
I​ ​require​ ​written​ ​medical​ ​permission​ ​to​ ​participate​ ​in​ ​coaching​ ​services​ ​if​ ​you​ ​are​ ​pregnant​ ​or have​ ​an​ ​active​ ​medical​ ​diagnosis​ ​of​ ​bulimia​ ​nervosa/anorexia/binge​ ​eating​ ​disorder/EDNOS. I​ ​prohibit​ ​participation​ ​in​ ​my​ ​coaching​ ​services​ ​for​ ​children​ ​under​ ​the​ ​age​ ​of​ ​18.

If​ ​you​ ​are​ ​being​ ​treated​ ​for​ ​an​ ​illness,​ ​taking​ ​prescription​ ​medication,​ ​or​ ​following​ ​a​ ​therapeutic diet​ ​to​ ​treat​ ​a​ ​disease,​ ​it’s​ ​especially​ ​important​ ​to​ ​show​ ​the​ ​Whole30​ ​plan​ ​to​ ​your​ ​physician​ ​or primary​ ​health​ ​care​ ​provider.​ ​Any​ ​modifications​ ​made​ ​to​ ​the​ ​plan​ ​by​ ​your​ ​provider(s)​ ​should​ ​be followed.
