APB's Melissa Hartwig Urban Releases New Book, "The Whole30 Friends & Family"
14 Oct 2019
Founder of the mega-popular dietary program The Whole30, APB speaker Melissa Hartwig Urban is releasing a new cookbook on October 15th entitled The Whole30 Friends & Family: 150 Recipes for Every Social Occasion. The idea for the 30-day elimination diet program that became the Whole30 was born through a friendly post-workout dare to cut out sugar, alcohol, and processed food. Melissa had no idea it would completely change her life, and the lives of so many others. Today, the Whole30 is one of the most established and influential nutrition programs in the U.S.
A certified sports nutritionist and New York Times best-selling cookbook author, Hartwig Urban specializes in helping people change their relationship with food and create lifelong, healthy habits. After overcoming a five-year drug addiction in 2000, she adopted a growth mindset, dove into running and CrossFit, and began to study nutrition. The Whole30 was born in 2009 when she blogged about the life-changing results of her self-designed 30-day dietary experiment. Now a one-of-a-kind motivational and leadership speaker, she continues to help people from all backgrounds improve their quality of life through health.
