Melissa Urban

MELISSA URBAN is the Whole30 (whole30.com) co-founder and CEO, and an authority on helping people change their relationship with food, set boundaries, and create life-long, healthy habits. After overcoming a five-year drug addiction in 2000, she adopted a growth mindset, dove into fitness, and began to study nutrition. In 2009, she self-designed a 30-day dietary experiment and saw unexpected and life-changing physical, mental, and emotional benefits. A few months later she blogged about the experiment and invited her readers to give it a try, calling the program "the Whole30." More than 11 years later and Whole30 is now a household name, featuring partnerships like Chipotle, Whole Foods, LaCroix, and Applegate, and eight Whole30 books. Melissa is a six-time New York Times bestselling author (including the #1 best-seller The Whole30); has been featured by Dr. Oz, Good Morning America, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and CNBC; and is ranked #19 on Greatest Top 100 Most Influential People in Health and Fitness. Melissa has presented more than 150 health and nutrition seminars worldwide, and is a prominent keynote speaker on social media and branding, health trends, and entrepreneurship. Melissa hosts the popular podcast Do the Thing, available wherever you listen to podcasts. She enjoys hiking, snowshoeing, and paddleboarding; yoga and the gym; solo traveling; reading books; and studying habit and change. She lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.
