Greater than 1/3 of adults in the United States are obese, and that figure is expected to rise to 42 percent by 2030. The Body Reset diet, a 15-day smoothie-based, low exercise regime aiming to assist followers shed unwanted weight and keep it off is an option.
Harley Pasternak created a smoothie-based “Body Reset” diet with the aim of keeping dieting simple. The inspiration behind the liquid diet is to bring great food in moderation and active movement plus water intake together throughout the day. The liquid meals, or smoothies, contain proper proportions of all the food groups depriving the body of nothing besides solid food.
How Does the Body Reset Diet Work?
Body Reset is divided into 3 phases consisting of five-days each. Each phase targets different meal formats, with the common denominator being smoothies. The smoothies are a vessel for multiple ingredients with similar caloric value, protein, dietary fiber and healthy fats.
- Apple Pie Smoothie (325 calories total, 4 grams of fat, 19 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber and 56 grams of carbs)
- Ruby Red Frostie Smoothie (270 calories total, 5 grams of fat, 27 grams of protein, 11 grams of fiber and 34 grams of carbs)
- Apple Jack Smoothie (299 calories total, 8 grams of fat, 21 grams of protein, 9 grams of fiber and 40 grams of carbs)
- Sweet Spinach Smoothie (296 calories total, 8.3 grams of fat, 16.5 grams of protein, 9 grams of fiber and 43.6 grams of carbs.
The Holy Trinity of metabolism as Pasternak describes: carbs, protein and fiber is is the concept behind the Body Reset Diet. By combining these essential nutrients in small fixed portions throughout the day, in addition to a daily step count, the Body Reset Diet will reboot metabolism which will sustain weight loss.
Crunchy snacks are also ingested in between smoothies which pack in protein, fiber and healthy fats to keep you full. Over the course of the plan, you will incorporate foods called “S” or “single dish” meals such as sandwiches, soups, salads and stir-fry. A one-item is prepared to prevent overeating.
The last metabolism-boosting technique is exercise in the form of walking 10,000 steps every day and 2 five-minute, weight resistance exercises, i.e tricep dips and/or pushups 3x per week.
