I think it would be valuable to try the whole 30. I believe the primary value is to clear your system of things you may have been reacting to without realizing it. Then when you reintroduce those things, you have a better idea whether you are tolerant or not.
I did not do a whole 30 myself. I didn't even know what it was. But I did eventually gravitate toward a diet mostly of meat and veggies and sweet potatoes. I believe it was valuable for me to eat only that because I felt so good. It showed me I didn't need the things I used to eat to eat satisfying delicious meals or to have high energy.
