What is the Real Food Reset?

As a Nutrition Consultant, one of the best tools to help my clients is an elimination diet. It is a short-term dietary reset that removes the inflammatory and irritating foods to help get folks back to baseline and to a place where their bodies can heal. It also allows folks to pinpoint particularly problematic foods. It can help heal the gut and rebalance blood sugar.

How long is the Real Food Reset?

Elimination diets generally last four weeks to three months depending on the purpose and the person. The Real Food Reset is four weeks long. This is long enough to give your body time to heal and for you to see results, but not so long that you feel that it is not “do-able”. Four weeks also allows your palate to reset so that real foods taste better than before. You may also choose to do a “kick-off week” leading up to the Real Food Reset where you remove one or two foods, like soda, candy, or sugary caffeinated drinks to help ease you into week 1 of the Real Food Reset.

This can be a little nuanced and in the Real Food Reset we dig deeper into exactly what foods are IN and what foods are OUT and WHY. But in general…

The foods that we remove: alcohol, sugar, artificial sweeteners, processed grains, processed foods, meat alternatives & soy products, vegetable oils, and generally speaking, fast food is out too.

The foods you can eat: vegetables, fruits, whole grains, eggs, meat, grass-fed dairy, nuts, seeds, and legumes (except soy).

Q: Can vegetarians join the real-food reset? What about vegans?

A: Pescatarians that also eat dairy can join the Real Food Reset. This will ensure that your daily protein intake is sufficient. I do not promote a vegan diet because it is high in inflammatory foods. Meat alternatives are especially high in inflammatory foods, which is why they are out for the real-food reset.

Q: What is the refund policy?

A: No refunds will be issued as materials will be distributed upon payment. However, you can postpone your participation to join a Real Food Reset within 6 months of the original Real Food Reset.

Q: Do I have to quit and restart if I eat foods from the elimination list?

A: Short answer: No. This is something we discuss during our calls.

Q: How many people are in a group?

A: Group sizes are intentionally small to provide personalized support and coaching. Typically there will 4-8 participants in a Real Food Reset group.
