Fit Pantry - a Fit Foodie's thoughts, tips and recipe

Ultimate Reset

I decided to revisit the ULTIMATE RESET® in May to rebuild my body during post surgery recovery period. It will be a perfect timing, because for the next 8 weeks, I will not be doing any workout at all other than light walking and breathing exercise as in Tai Chi or Tai Cheng.

WHAT is the Ultimate Reset?

For those of you not familiar with this program, the Ultimate Reset is an all-natural alternative to harsh cleanses and starvation diets. So if you’re tired of being tired and feeling run down, the Ultimate Reset is for you.
This round, I will be doing the Reset along with a support group hosted by Darin Olien, the co-formulator of Shakelogy and author of "Superlife." I have made some edits below to include resources from his websites to help you do this cleanse.  To join this Reset with me and Darin follow this easy steps:

STEP #1:  Get your ULTIMATE RESET kit »

Choose your kit.  I strongly suggest getting the Challenge Pack for 2 reasons: First, save $$$ - you get Shakeology AND the UR kit for a good savings!  Second, Shakeology is nutrition dense and highly recommended to simplify your cleansing.

Get your Ultimate Reset Kit.

STEP #2: Join the Official Beachbody Ultimate Reset Support Group »

The support group is separated into phases: Pre Reset, Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Post Reset.  Join the Pre Reset group now even if you have done this before.

STEP#3: Get your shopping list ready and prep your pantry.

Read through the recipe book and get ideas on what to eat during each phase. Keeping things simple but un-boring is the key for an enjoyable and successful cleanse :)

Below you will find shortcuts to the 21-days of my Beachbody Ultimate Reset journey.  From what is "Ultimate Reset", what I supplied my pantry with for the 3 weeks, and what I ate/cooked each meal. Scroll down to view links to every day's recap include my workout activities and photos of the meals that day.

Keep in mind this is a detox, not simply a restricted calorie diet. I ate until I was reasonably full.


Thinking about doing a cleanse, but wondering if it would really work?

I could cite resources from studies as of why cleansing is good for you and why Beachbody Ultimate Reset works. But, that you can simply Google through online. What matters is personal experience. When I learn about some new program that make sense, I would give it a try. Why not? It is the only way I can confidently say "Yes, I have done it and this is my experience and opinion on the program."
I did the Beachbody Ultimate Reset and I had felt the difference in my body. However, given my position as fitness instructor, I could not follow the no-workout or light-workout guideline. As such, I modified by upping my calorie intake while still following the rules of what is good to eat and what to avoid.
