Did you just return from a vacation or do you need a kickstart for summer? We have the plan for you. Our 5 Day Reset will help stop the cravings and add nutrient dense foods back into your life.
WHAT IS THE RESET?
For at least 2 of the 5 days you will have an 8 hour feeding window. For example, you may choose 10am to 6pm. Then 16 hours of fasting. You must do this for 2 days and we strongly recommend up to 5 days. There will be 3 meals per 8 hour feeding window, no snacks. You will want to be sure to have enough protein and healthy fat with each meal to hold you over until the next meal.
WHY DO A RESET?
Because you’re fat, sick and have been eating way too much crap lately. Because summer is coming and you’re not going to do anything until its too late unless we prod you in the ass. Seriously though, a restricted window of when you eat will help you lose weight even if you ate the same calories over a longer period. Also, giving your body a break from all the carbohydrates you ate last week will help you reset your management of blood sugar and help you get back on track with healthy choices.
WHAT CAN YOU DRINK DURING THE 5 DAY RESET?
Keto Coffee (limit fat to 10g)
WHAT WILL THE MEALS BE LIKE?
We have selected 8 meals for you to eat. They have been created to eliminate sugar, grains, gluten, soy, and dairy. Below are the meals with simple directions and recipes when needed. You may try them all or just a few and repeat. All meals can be made in less than 30 minutes. Most meals can be prepared in 1-2 pans on the stove, sometimes the oven is used. Vegetables can be batch cooked ahead depending on the meals you decide to prepare. Look for quality proteins and be sure to include enough healthy fats in your meals as they will help you feel full. Vegetables chosen are the “above the ground” variety. The plan includes 3 meals, no snacking. The above drinks can be consumed during the fasting hours.
