Body Reset Diet: Rapid Weight Loss in 15 Days

body reset dietThe Body Reset Diet was created by celebrity personal trainer, Harley Pasternak. His list of clients includes many A-list celebrities such as Halle Berry, who he helped prepare for her role in Catwoman.

He is also the bestselling author of the book, The 5-Factor Diet.

The Body Reset Diet is a weight loss plan he created for real people to produce immediate and dramatic results. It is designed to reboot your system and put you on the right path to achieving the body you want.

Body Reset Diet Basics

According to Harley Pasternak:

Moderation isn’t always enough, at least as a first step towards real weight loss.

  • We need to reset the way we think about food.
  • We need to reset our metabolism.
  • We need to reset our bodies.

This plan requires you to make some fairly major changes to your diet. However, unlike crash dieting it will not compromise your nutritional intake and it will support your health. His approach also promises to help you avoid the yo-yo effect that commonly occurs when people go on strict diets.

The Body Reset Diet was created to give you rapid results in the beginning because this inspires confidence and motivation to stick with the plan. The benefits of this approach have been supported by scientific research suggesting a greater chance of long-term weight loss success.

Blending for Weight Loss

The Body Reset Diet is centered around blending your foods as a healthy solution for rapid weight loss. Pasternak claims that this is the easiest and most effective way to release excess pounds.

Consuming smoothies for your meals provides immediate improvements in health and is less drastic – and less expensive – than juice fasting.

The smoothies contain all of the nutrients you would normally get from a meal including fiber, healthy fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals. It is just that it is in a drinkable form.

The book offers many tasty, yet nutritious smoothie recipes. If you don’t have time to make smoothies – get them from Organifi.

Phase 1: The 5-Day Jump Start

Green Smoothie

The first five days of the program focuses on smoothies that are designed to keep you satisfied and boost your metabolism.

Each day you consume three smoothies – a white smoothie for breakfast, a red one for lunch and a green one for dinner. In addition you will have two crunchy snacks in between.

This phase will boost your metabolism, heal your digestion and reset your palate so that you start to crave healthy foods.

Phase 2

In the second phase – which also lasts for five days – you begin to reintroduce solid foods. For one meal each day you can choose from healthy options such as soups, salads, sandwiches, stir-fry and sushi.

You continue to have two smoothies and two snacks a day

Phase 3

For the last five days of The Body Reset Diet you will replace another smoothie with a solid meal. You will continue to have a smoothie for breakfast but now have more options for lunch and dinner.
