The Ultimate Reset-21 days to NEW YOU

On May first I started a life changing, reorganization of my priorities, and nutrition.
Basically the program works like this:

Week one you stick to one meal with meat/dairy a day-the other meals are vegetarian/vegan.  Week two is no meat or dairy but grains, fruits, and veggies.  Week three it all fruits and veggies with optional grains.

The science behind a 21 day reset is this.  If you can remove food allergens from your diet (diary, eggs, meat) the histamines in your body will be minimal.  When the histamines in your body are not on RED ALERT, inflammation in your joints, muscles and gut is down. This means no bloat, no gas, no pain in your joints.  An added bonus to reduced histamines for me was NO SEASONAL ALLERGIES-during one of the worst allergy seasons.  I have quit taking allergy pills, I can eat apples, pears, and peaches without getting itchy throat, eyes, and ears.  This reset has completely changed the way I look at food.  I *thought* I ate well before.

Here is a picture in March just after the Shamrock shuffle:

Here is after week one, these jeans are a size 10:

Here is week two, I am wearing a medium shirt and medium shorts (I wore large on day 1):

This is the beginning of week 3:

This is last Friday, day 18:

Here are my results.  The before was taken on May 1 the after was taken yesterday morning. I lost 15lbs and 10.5 inches.  I didn't workout.  I did run on Saturdays, as I didn't want to give up my long run endurance.

  1. I'm jealous! I just don't understand why I'm gaining weight right now. But I can't do the reset and not work out since I have 10 mile runs and half marathons coming up and marathon training in June!! I'm hoping the dr. test results come back with something I can work with.

    1. Amanda, I ran my long runs on Saturdays.
