New Program Prioritizes Plant-Based Proteins and Supports Metabolic Health


As More Consumers Explore Plant-Based Eating, New Program Prioritizes Plant-Based Proteins and Supports Metabolic Health to Reset Health, Habits and Relationship with Food

Whole30®, a wellness brand that offers the leading nutritional reset program, announced the launch of a first-of-its-kind: the Plant-Based Whole30®, the first, structured whole food plant-based elimination and reintroduction protocol that thoughtfully prioritizes plant-based proteins and supports metabolic health.

The Whole30 brand now offers two 30-day resets: the Original Whole30 and the Plant-Based Whole30. Dietitian-approved and grounded in 12 years of clinical experience, both resets are intended to help participants identify food sensitivities and create a personalized, sustainable diet through proven elimination and reintroduction protocols.

“We have always supported the vegan and vegetarian members of our community with resources and guides, but the new Plant-Based Whole30 is our most comprehensive offering to a new subset of people who could not join the Original Whole30 because of their personal beliefs or dietary preferences,” said Whole30 co-founder and CEO, Melissa Urban. “I’m proud that we now offer programs to reach more people who want a life-changing reset to help get them on the right path and ultimately create an individualized diet to work best within their unique context and values.”

The new reset is ideal for those who are vegan or vegetarian looking for a dietitian-created, self-directed program to self-assess plant-based protein sources and food groups as well as help identify food sensitivities and establish new healthy habits.

“Although a vegan diet includes an abundant source of fruits and vegetables, it does not necessarily exclude processed foods, sugar or gluten,” says David Perlmutter, MD, FACN and board-certified neurologist.  “The Plant-Based Whole30 program combines the health benefits of plant-based diets with the time-tested effectiveness of the Whole30 program, providing us with an even better opportunity to achieve our goals as we chart our health destiny.”

During the 30-day elimination phase, participants omit added sugar, alcohol, grains, and all forms of animal protein and animal fat. Participants are also discouraged from recreating baked goods and sweets on the program. Following the elimination phase, participants reintroduce each food group one at a time, comparing their experience and how their body reacts. Unlike any other health reset, the Plant-Based Whole30 offers two structured reintroduction approaches: one that is 100% plant-based and another which includes animal protein.

The Plant-Based Whole30 allows legumes, less-processed forms of soy, unsweetened plant-based protein powders, nuts, and seeds to provide adequate protein, and includes only plant-based fats.

“One of the most common questions about adopting a plant-based diet is ‘Where do you get your protein?'” says Urban. “We’ve compiled years of research and our clinical experience into The Plant-Based Whole30 program, which prioritizes adequate protein intake, blood sugar regulation, and metabolic health.”

Designed by Melissa Urban and Registered Dietician, Stephanie Greunke, the plant-based program is also endorsed by a team of expert medical and nutritional advisors. For more information on how to get started with this free program, visit

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
