Q: How do I promote weight loss during the Reboot?
A: The primary goal of the Reboot is to begin a journey of health and wellness for a lasting lifestyle change. For those who are overweight, weight loss is typically a side effect of a Reboot, which for some individuals is great news. For many, weight loss may be a key reason you would like to try a Reboot, as a jump start to a long term weight loss plan. For others, weight loss is just a temporary by-product of the Reboot and not a primary goal.

Q: What about weight gain?
A: For some, unintentional weight gain can occur during a Reboot. If this is the case for you, make sure you’re drinking enough water and getting enough juice or fruits and veggies during the eating phase to support your usual metabolism to help keep your weight steady.
Plan to eat 5-6 times a day including fresh juices and raw or cooked fruits and veggies. Don’t be shy – have a salad and a side dish of roasted veggies or have a big bowl of veggie soup plus a big salad. Add in starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes, pumpkin, winter squash, or fresh corn to help you feel satisfied.
