The Food

The Metabolism Reset Diet emphasizes the importance of starting your day with a glass of water infused with lemon or lime juice. It’s a refreshing way to kickstart your morning. Within an hour of waking up, I enjoyed a delicious shake from one of the many recipe options provided in the book. These shakes are packed with nutrients, including a mix of water, ice, fruit, and other ingredients. I particularly loved using frozen fruit as it adds a coolness factor to the shakes. Fresh fruit is also an option, but frozen fruit ensures freshness and convenience.

For breakfast and lunch, the shakes are your go-to meals. It’s recommended to make both shakes in the morning, drink half of the first one, and save the other half for lunch. I found this method convenient, although I did have one shake turn into a delightful pudding that I devoured with a spoon. Experimenting with different recipes and flavors is also encouraged to suit your taste preferences.

In addition to the shakes, you incorporate resistant starch (RS) into your diet. This can be obtained through various options, such as aquafaba (the liquid from chickpea cans) or green banana flour. I personally opted for green banana flour as it was easily accessible. Protein powder is another essential component, and I chose pea protein powder as it is lactose-free and fits my dietary needs. A small amount of stevia extract is recommended as a natural sweetener to enhance the flavor of the shakes.

For dinner, you have the freedom to choose from a range of recipes provided in the book. As a non-meat eater, I substituted chicken with tempeh or soy in some recipes, and the results were delicious. If you prefer, you can also create your own dinner using the guidelines provided. But don’t forget about the “free food” category! These are foods you can have as much as you want. Don’t underestimate the power of vegetables and other free food options, such as broth, herbal tea, cherry tomatoes, and pickles. These free foods can satisfy cravings and provide additional flavor and satisfaction.

The Water

Proper hydration is crucial during the Metabolism Reset Diet. It’s recommended to drink eight glasses of water per day. To make it more manageable, I used a three-cup water bottle that I carried with me throughout the day. This helped me track my water intake and ensured I met the required amount. You can also use Mason jars or any other container that suits your preference. Remember, the goal is to stay hydrated, even if you choose to sip water throughout the day instead of drinking eight ounces all at once.

The Exercise

The Metabolism Reset Diet incorporates exercise as an essential part of the program. It includes daily walks, alternating with walk/run sessions or calisthenics exercises. Initially, I underestimated the level of intensity these exercises would provide. Despite being an avid yogi, I found myself feeling sore, especially in my thighs. It was a humbling experience, reminding me that everyone’s fitness level is unique. The key is to find a pace and routine that suits you. Don’t worry about over-exercising; it’s important to listen to your body and adapt the exercises accordingly.

The Challenges

While the Metabolism Reset Diet offers numerous benefits, it also presents a few challenges. For some individuals, detoxing off caffeine can be a significant hurdle. I was fortunate not to experience this challenge as I had previously weaned myself off coffee. However, if you’re a caffeine lover, it’s advisable to gradually reduce your caffeine intake before starting the diet.

Cravings and social situations can also pose challenges. I occasionally had moments of craving specific foods, especially something crunchy while watching TV. To overcome these cravings, I opted for my “free food” options like pickles or a warm cup of broth. It’s essential to distract yourself and find alternative activities to replace snacking habits. Social events may require a bit of planning, but there are always choices available, such as herbal teas or sparkling water with a touch of lime.

The Results

After completing week one of the Metabolism Reset Diet, I have experienced some fantastic outcomes. One noticeable change is the improvement in my sleep quality. Previously, I would wake up multiple times during the night, but now I’m sleeping soundly through the night. Additionally, I feel remarkably good overall, which surprised me considering my already healthy eating habits. I suspect that wheat may not agree with me, and I plan to explore this further.

To measure success, the diet suggests focusing on waist measurements rather than weight alone. By measuring my waist, I found a reduction of 1.5 inches when measured in a relaxed state. This demonstrates the effectiveness of the diet and the impact of healthy eating on body composition. As for weight loss, I was thrilled to see a remarkable five-pound drop in just one week. While I understand that some of it may be water weight, the difference in how my clothes fit and the reduction of inflammation is evident.

Looking Forward

As I embark on week two of the Metabolism Reset Diet, I’m excited to continue this journey. I’ve prepared a batch of minestrone soup as part of my meal planning, ensuring I have convenient and healthy options readily available.
