There is a new trending diet that is making its way through Charlotte and South Charlotte Dentistry gives it a thumbs up. If you are a fitness junkie or health guru, then you have most likely heard of the Whole30 everyone seems to be raving about. The diet is supposed to help you reset your body and even help you drop a few pounds. As summer is coming to a close, everyone is trying to get back in the groove. That means back-to-school shopping, hair appointments, nail appointments, you get it appointments, appointments, appointments. Everyone wants to end the summer with a fresh start, looking and feeling their best!

 

What Is the Whole30?

Looking and feeling your best is what the Whole30 is all about. The Whole30 is a program designed to help you reset your body to a healthier lifestyle by eliminating foods that cause inflammation, and help you find which food work best for you. This diet is similar to a detox program but allows you to eat foods, versus a juicing diet that has its pros and cons. This diet accomplishes this by eliminating sugar, alcohol, dairy, grains, and legumes. The diet is focused on eating whole foods that are minimally processed. Dieters spend 30 days eating only fruits, vegetables, eggs, grass-fed meats, nuts, and healthy fats.

 

Why It Is Great For Your Teeth

The Whole30 eliminates sugar! That is one of the best decisions you could make for your teeth. Sugar is very harmful to your teeth because it creates bad bacteria in your mouth. When this bacteria grows it creates acid that can cause cavities and cause tooth enamel to erode. Eliminating this substance from your diet will reduce its contact with your teeth.

In addition to eliminating the worst food for your teeth, you will be eating some of the best foods for your teeth. The Whole30 focuses on foods like fish, meats, eggs, and nuts. These foods absorb healthy vitamins and encourage solid and healthy enamel. These foods also contain high levels of phosphorous, calcium, and vitamin D. The Whole30 is also focused on fruits and vegetables that have a number of benefits. Fruits and veggies help get your gums healthy and keep them from becoming too sensitive. They also contain vitamin C and antioxidants.
