The other night, one of my closest friends, Danielle, messaged me on instagram saying "can you PLEASE do a blog on why I hate Whole 30?" I took a screen shot and posted it to my story in hopes of showing others that even people who aren't in recovery and aren't super involved in the anti-diet scene can see … Continue reading I asked my non-ED friends what they think about Whole 30 and they went off
