A typical day on the program

Enjoy a tasty and healthy meal plan, customized to your liking, throughout the day. Meal plans are designed to provide energy, new flavors, and a gentle ease into a healthier overall diet.
Each day you'll be encouraged to complete goals you set for yourself at the start of each week. Your goals might be centered around drinking more water, going to bed earlier, engaging in healthy stress-relieving activities such as walking or yoga, or making a healthier dessert instead of your nightly bowl of ice cream. Whatever your goals are the idea behind this program is to open your eyes to ways you can enjoy healthy living and maintain it for the long haul. The Refresh is all about progress, not perfection!

Program Materials

Program description and details

In our world today, it’s easy to fall into unhealthy habits. The busyness of life can cause us to forget the importance of daily movement, healthy eating, stress management and over all self-care. Over time, your body becomes less able to deal with the stress of these unhealthy habits and your health may start to suffer. Some of the more common indicators that you may need to take some time out to do a Reset include poor sleep, weight gain, high lipid levels such as cholesterol, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, poor digestion, and low energy levels. 

The program focuses on eating whole foods such as plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins and eliminates common culprits of excess calorie, sugar, and salt intake: processed foods with added sugar, highly refined snack/pantry/freezer food, most dairy products, alcohol, and highly processed grains. You will learn more about the details of what to eat and what not to eat during the kick-off meeting. 

A typical day on the program

8 a.m. Reset Shake and/or breakfast food such as a fruit bowl and eggs (any style)
10 a.m. Medium apple and 1/4 cup of almonds
Noon Large green salad topped with roasted veggies, seeds, grilled chicken or tofu and olive oil/balsamic vinegar dressing
3 p.m. Healthy snack, such as fresh vegetables, a piece of fruit or another Reset Shake
6 p.m. Baked salmon or three-bean chili, steamed broccoli, salad and 1/2 cup rice
9 p.m. Optional: Light snack containing protein before bed (such as 1/2 apple and 1 tablespoon almond butter)
