Reset Your Weight is an extension of years of evidence-based research and personal curiosity into using real food as the primary means to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
My journey started with the GAPS Diet and has led to a life of food freedom: freedom from (sugar) cravings, freedom from obsessing about what food to eat for a slimmer body, and a greater understanding of how the body and brain benefit from a balanced microbiome.
There's no constant "dieting" or continual unhealthy, obsessive focus on "watching what you eat."
What are the Basics of Reset Your Weight?
That's it. It's that simple!
A real, minimally processed food lifestyle will:
- quickly stabilize your blood sugar (no cravings and decreased fat),
- increase satiety by eating healthy fats,
- provide the nutrients (and the ability to utilize them) that your body and brain need to eliminate (sugar and simple carb) cravings that dictate what you eat, and
optimize brain health and improve emotional well being (due to a sealed gut lining).
Take back control from your food.
Without cravings, you'll experience the awesomeness of eating to enjoy food without the fat and body weight leading to damaging health conditions. You'll be able to mindfully make choices and change any conflicting eating behaviors that will continue to negatively impact your weight and health.
Are your cravings stemming from packaged foods? Read this post to understand that cravings connection.
But it all starts in the gut. Sure, I can give you a plan to shed inches of fat quickly from your body. The most significant aspect of that food plan will be your AH-HA moment of freedom from cravings and the real feelings of hunger.
It will Challenge you to rethink your relationship with food and my hope is that it will encourage you to see that a real food lifestyle is an easy way to eat to effortlessly maintain your optimal body weight. Your success on the Challenge Reset is like the carrot (or carrot cake!) dangling on the stick: visual inches lost and probably a few pounds as well.
Think this quick loss will not stick around? Probably not, if you go back to eating sugary and simple carbs. Yup, you can't get around that truth. You must create a change in how your body uses food and that can still be done without cravings destroying your "willpower" or daily motivation.
