My name is Jennifer White and I am 32 years old. I’m a mother of 4 (3 girls and a baby boy) and have a military spouse. My husband is in the Navy and was deployed when our youngest was 4 weeks old, that is actually when I decided to join the 30 Day Clean Eating Challenge.
I’m a professor for Park University where I teach biology and health. Â I’m also a full time student working on my doctorate of public health in epidemiology. For fun I love spending time with my kids and I really enjoy the outdoors.
I struggled with anxiety and feeling exhausted yet unable to sleep. My sleep problems made it really difficult to enjoy the time with my children in the way I desired.
I took the challenge because I wanted more out of life, and I felt ready to make a change.Â Through embarking on the 30 Day Clean Eating Challenge journey, I have not only seen a physical transformation, but I have seen a huge change in my sleeping patterns and energy levels. My confidence has seen a huge boost and my anxiety has disappeared. Â My attitude has completely changed and I feel amazing!
The 30 Day Clean Eating Challenge helped me transform both inside and out.
- I lost 17.1 pounds total
- I lost 4.5 inches from my upper and lower stomach
- 2.5 inches from my thighs and butt
- Â 2.25 inches from each thigh.
I have also been able to fit back into my pre-pregnancy jeans which has been really exciting for me!Â

For my family the challenge had some great and unexpected effects. My children have grown to love trying new healthy foods, and they also love to help me meal prep. I love being able to set a good example for them.
For newcomers who are interested in taking the 30 Day Clean Eating Challenge my advice is to do it! Â Stop making excuses about why you can’t because YOU ARE WORTH IT! Â
I made so many excuses about not having the time or being too busy with the kids or work or school, but I made the time and I am so happy that I did. It’s had an impact on how the entire house eats and there is nothing better than you can do for yourself or your family than to improve their health. You can do anything for 30 days, you just have to want it bad enough.
