Honest Ultimate Reset Review – Week 1

Honest Ultimate Reset Review

Since I'm doing the Ultimate Reset again, I wanted to post a new review for you guys. The first time I did the Ultimate Reset was back in May of 2013.

MY FIRST ROUND: 
It went well, I got results from it but mentally..It made me feel I can do anything! There were no restrictions as far as eating less, infact you ate all day long! 
It was ll new to us so we dove it. It was a great cooking lesson too. I learned so much about cooking with spices. It really did change our lives, we actually became vegans for 1.5 years after the Reset. 

We felt really good.

I did pick up a few tips and things I loved along the way
 

  1. Himalayian Salt (o-m-gee delicious & nutritious hehe it adds natural minerals that your body needs)
  2. The Oatmeal breakfast with maple syrup- to dieee for
  3. Drinking a ton of water
  4. Consciously eating & chewing completely. You actually shouldn't drink water during your meal because it dilutes digestive juices & acids, slowing down digestion which can cause digestive problems. Who knew?
  5. Sleep! ah the sleep I got was AMAZING! 
  6. My skin was super clear after the first week- what girl wouldn't love that?

End results- I lost 8 lbs and Paul lost 14! grrrrrr

 

My Current Reset Experience:

It's so funny because I feel like I'm in a completely different mental space than I was the last time. This time around is NOTHING like the first time. 

We did this after the holidays and after our week long vacation in Aruba.

We both came home with colds, that I still ahve as I type this! 

The food prep was so new to us the first time, it was exciting…now , not so much. Being sick didn't help. I was not into cooking every single meal. That's the honest truth.

 

So what's different?  I've been really reflecting on that over the last few days and I think it's a combination of a few things

  1.  My reason for WANTING to do the Ultimate Reset this time is solid. The first time we did it, I really just wanted to see what it was all about and experience it for myself. I didn't do it for ME…I did it to be able to help my team and the people who I coach. I love my team dearly…but if you are going to stick to a workout…meal plan…or doing ANYTHING really…you have to do it for YOU. This time I really thought about why I wanted to do it…and how I want to feel by the end of it…that motivation is greater than anything.
  2. I know what to expect! I KNOW to drink my water! Constantly! I loved all the meals. And if I didn't feel like cooking or chopping that day, it's ok..eat something differemt that is in the plan so I'm not ripping my hair out!
  3. I'm focused on ENJOYING the journey instead of the pursuit of perfection. I read the guide cover to cover…took notes and insisted that we do everything 100% exactly how they laid it out. Honestly, it stressed me out hardcore. I couldn't focus on enjoying our journey of detoxing.
  4. I have my support team. My husband Paul is helping me stick with it by supporting me every step of the way.

As of day 7, I am down 3.8 lbs. Weight loss isa great by-product of this, but it's neat to see the relationship between food and how you look/feel. I have amazing energy..except for this cold which is sapping me a bit! 

 

The Ultimate Reset Review: Week 1

Day 1: The Ultimate Reset started today, and I have to say, it wasn’t so bad. The food was great (eggs/spinach/toast for breakfast, salad for lunch, salmon/potatoes/asparagus for dinner), nice and fresh… really, how it should always be. Drank plenty of distilled water. And the supplements are easy to take. The hardest part was the lack of caffeine.BUt I purchased this herbal coffee that is naturally acid and caffine free that tastes pretty good.  Felt slightly tired most of the day and am fading fast tonight. But all and all, a good first day, which should be expected given how we’re just getting going.

Day 2: Another decent day for The Ultimate Reset. Food was solid (got to have a bean & rice taco at dinner with a healthy side of guacamole). The Power Greens is like a shot of green earth…I love it..some don't!  The supplements are simple.  Been sleepy a bit but hopefully that will improve.

Day 3: No real complaints on the taste of the food: good flavors and great variety. In fact, we had homemade nori wraps! I liked them so much we purchased this awesome Sushi Made Easy device to help simplify the process, which leads me to my next point: the food prep is quite an endeavor. For the uninitiated, it’s like culinary boot camp. But there’s merit in that I believe, as it makes us more in tune to what we’re putting in our bodies as we move away from buying factory foods.

Still a little sleepy during the day and have been fighting some mild headaches since yesterday. The Ultimate Reset guidebook said this is normal, but to not take anything for it. So I haven’t. My guess is it’s the lack of caffeine.

Day 4: The headaches have gone away. I haven’t been getting the good rest I was expecting and I think it’s due to the high water consumption, but also I have this cold/coach as well.The Ultimate Reset suggests taking your body weight, divide it in half, and that number in ounces is how much distilled water you should have. I think I’ve done more than that, which is permissible assuming you don’t mind two to four trips to the potty in the middle of the night. I do mind so I’m cutting back.

Day 5: One of the harder things for me about this cleanse is not having anything to drink with my meals. You are not supposed to drink anything 30 minutes before or after a meal but sometimes, it’s really helpful to have a glass of something to wash down that dry whole-grain toast. But I press on.

Day 6: Today started with an unusual breakfast of baked tempeh with avocado and kale. Not a typical breakfast and frankly, I am not a fan of the soy, but it is fermented so that is much better for you.  

 

The root medley and zucchini cashew soup dinner on the other handUltimate Reset Review - Root Medley:Millet:Zucchini Cashew Soup was wonderful, the surprise hit of the week for me. 

Day 7: This was the first day I’ve noticed a difference in how I feel: I have more energy. Now I’m not one who usually struggles in this area, but I’m also one who can take a nap most any day, not because I’m exhausted, but because I just love naps.  I really look forward to my Sunday afternoon nap. So on one hand this was a bummer that I couldn’t fall asleep. But on the other hand, hey, I’ve got more energy and I feel really good. My husband mentioned he noticed his energy levels increasing as the week went on as well.

The Ultimate Reset Review: Week 1 Results

I had more energy. My digestion was already good but probably slightly improved. And, I lost 3.8 pounds! In all fairness, my starting weight was probably exaggerated from some poor eating choices from the holidays and our vacation. But still, even if it’s only 3.8  pounds, that’s significant.

Was it difficult to stay on track at times?  Of course!  You’re completely revamping your nutrition habits and it’s natural to resist change.  Thankfully, there’s a wonderful support network for you while you’re doing the program.  Some of my bumps in the road included the muscle fatigue I experienced during days 2-4.

Convenience foods no longer exist. You’ll need to take the time and make the effort to prepare all your meals from fresh whole foods.  But while you do it, you’ll discover great new ideas for future meals and snacks.  While doing the program, I’ve discovered a love of kale, jicama and beets! You need to keep an open mind during the process and if you do, I guarantee you’ll find yourself pleasantly surprised- not only with how good the food tastes but how good your body will feel.  My stomach has never felt leaner!  And speaking of my tummy, shameful confession time, I have had frequent bouts of painful gas in my adult life- I did not have any gas whatsoever while doing the Ultimate Reset.  Another big bonus? I’ve kicked my Coke Zero addiction and no longer need sleeping pills to get to sleep each night.

Who should do the Ultimate Reset?

The Ultimate Reset is ideal for those who are seeking to better their nutritional habits.  If you’re feeling stuck in a rut nutrition-wise or have had problems busting through a plateau, the Ultimate Reset is for you.  If food is a problem for you (whether it be an obsession with food or emotional eating), the Ultimate Reset is for you.  The Ultimate Reset is a very regimented program that will put you on a schedule with a detailed meal plan and will help you change bad habits.  You’ll learn how to become a CONSCIOUS eater, rather than an EMOTIONAL one.  Chances are, you’ll be eating a lot more healthy than you ever have in your life and you’ll carry these new positive habits with you post-Reset- hopefully, for the rest of your life.

Why should I order the Ultimate Reset through you?

As someone who’s experienced the program firsthand, I can tell you exactly what to expect, how to minimize grocery costs while shopping for your Ultimate Reset meal ingredients and provide complete support for you throughout your 21 day Ultimate Reset adventure.
