    Can I work during the 21 day cleanse? Will I be in the bathroom all day?

      The Ultimate Reset is not a “flush” cleanse, so no, you won’t be stuck in the bathroom all day. There’s no crazy laxatives or anything that should make you sick. It’s releasing toxins from your body but not straight up flushing your system, if you know what I mean! You are advised not to work out or do anything terribly strenuous during the cleanse, simply because 1) your energy level may be lower than normal, and 2) the goal of the Reset is to release toxins; when you work out or put stress on your body, toxins are formed in your muscles, defeating the purpose of the cleanse. Hope this helps!

    Can I do the reset without the supplements? a friend of mine did it and has the meal plans and I can’t really afford the supplements. Do you think this will make a huge negative difference in my results?

      You CAN do it without the supplements, but then you’re not doing the Ultimate Reset…you’re just eating clean. So you will not get the benefit of the Reset. The Reset is about resetting your body internally, not really about weight loss. Remember that. So if you follow the meal plan, you’re just eating clean, which is healthy anyway.

        I just finished the cleanse Saturday, but I was not aware that I had to follow the meal plan backwards after the 21 days was over. Is it too late to go backwards on the menu?

          You don’t have to go backwards! The idea is really just to slowly add foods back into your diet after the 21st day. Doing the plan in reverse is just one way of doing that. On day 22, you don’t want to launch right back into how you were eating pre-Reset; you want to slowly add back in the foods that your body misses. So don’t freak out, it’s okay 🙂 Just keep with the habits you learned on the Ultimate Reset, create your own meals based on those habits and refer back to the Reset meals and recreate your eating habits!

            The thing is that I started eating chicken again and I started gaining weight in 5 days, I gained 3 lbs. I don’t want to gain anyof the weight back. Is it safe to say that if I stick the foods on the reset, I’ll keep losing even though I don’t have any supplements left?

      Just thought I’d let you know that my husband and I are just wrapping up week two on this cleanse. I’m using the supplements and he is not, but we are both eating the same exact meals. So far I have lost 10.6 pounds and he’s lost 11. If you can’t afford the supplements, I would still do it. The food is awesome, and the results are too.

    I’m starting my reset on Sunday and I’m super excited, but I’m worried about not being able to work out. I’m at the gym every day.. Did you not work at all while on the reset or did you do less strenuous activities?

      Hi Kelly! If you follow the Ultimate Reset 100% it is advised that you don’t work out. If you REALLY can’t live without your workouts (and believe me, I understand!) you will need to add calories by adding foods from the snacks and food lists in the food guide to your daily diet. You’ll probably want to take it down a notch at least for the first few days to feel it out. Listen to your body! If you need extra help, drop me an email! We can talk more in depth 🙂

    I’m starting my Ultimate Reset on Monday. I’m nervouse and excited. I’m part of a group that’s doing it together….for acountability and support. I’m going to have a hard time at first without my coffee but I know this will really be what I need to get things rolling. I’ve been sick with a nasty virus and unable to workout for 3 weeks now, so this came along at the perfect time. I really like your honest review. I’m trying to mentally prep myself this weekend and get all of the shopping done so I can food prep on Sunday. I’m really not sure if I’m looking forward to seaweed and Tempah……but I’m going to follow the program 100% and will just do what needs to be done! 🙂

    Just curious, on the before and after picture, why do you seem to be different heights relative to the door knob behind you?

      Could be any number of reasons: standing closer/farther away from the door, wearing shoes in one picture and none in the next, having the camera stabilized differently or at a different angle, my weight could have been shifted all into one leg in the after photo…etc. It looks to me like I was standing closer to the door in the first photo and a little bit closer to the camera in the second. Very marginal difference.

    I want to start the beachbody reset but I heard that I would have to take the supplements and eat every two hours. So I wake up at 2am for work and start the reset, so by 10am I will be done eating for the rest of the day? Do I need to wait two hours to do the supplements and eat or can I just do it like every four hours.

      John, the Reset is designed to space your meals out at even intervals during the day. This is assuming that those following will have a fairly regular schedule. My question for you is, what time do you get to sleep? Sleep is also a vital part of the Ultimate Reset. The meals you can space out based on your own schedule, but if you don’t get enough rest, that may pose as a bigger problem! Hope this helps!

    Melissa-
    I decided to comment after reading Kelly Jo’s comment/question. I too am very nervous/worried about the no working out aspect of this program. I am beginning this coming Monday. I am at the gym every morning lifting and moderate cardio unless I or my son are sick (which is very very rare). I go to the gym everyday not only for the physical benefits but the mental benefits. So I read in your reply to her to add snacks and assess energy level. Should I plan on the same and if so will I still see the wonderful benefits of the program? Thank you for any input!

      That’s exactly what you should do as well. I recommend following the guide and not working out at least for the first few days to assess your energy level. Plan on adding the extra snacks within the guide if you find you need to work out. Send me an email if you’d like to talk a little more in depth!

    I sleep at 7pm. So I start the reset @ 2:30 I would be done around 10. Do I just not eat the rest of the 9 hours after taking the last supplement/food?

      John, it’s not every two hours on the dot. You space it out based on your day. For example, I would eat my breakfast before my shift started at 8am, then I would take my supplements around 10:30, lunch at 12:30 or 1:00, more supplements at 2 or 3, and then dinner around 6 or 7. That is what worked for my schedule. The timing between each pre-meal supplement and the meal is important, and making sure you wait long enough between everything is the important part. It’s hard to explain if you don’t have the schedule in front of you. You basically are eating when you would eat your normal meals. Three meals plus snacks and supplements.

    Hi Melissa! I just want to say thank you for your in-depth review of the product. I am thinking about purchasing it today and I have a few questions. I have a lot of weight to lose as I am about 50-60 lbs overweight. As I am going through the program and not exercising, what loose skin? Should I maybe do some toning exercises of strength training to ensure I don’t have loose skin hanging around?

    I am 32 years old, so I am still pretty young, but just worry about that part as well.

    Thanks.

    I was introduced to the ultimate reset by a friend of mine.. before starting it my main worry is how to integrate the supplements I take now into the program. I take 4 fish oil capsules (to control depression) a day, and I can’t seem to find any info. about incorporating something like this into it. Is it doable?

      The thing with the Ultimate Reset is that you shouldn’t need additional supplements unless they are medications prescribed by your doctor. However, if you are taking them for something as heavy as depression, I personally would keep taking them as you already are. Of course, I’m not a doctor, and I would absolutely consult your doctor to make sure that they would say the same, but seeing as how it’s a fairly normal supplement, I don’t see why you would HAVE to give that up. Taking things like multivitamins, vitamin specific supplements, things like that though, that is unnecessary during the Reset.

    I really want to complete this program, but I was wondering about the types of foods that you are required to eat. I live in a remote community in the Arctic and do not have access to anything outside of the basics. How varied are the meals? Will I be able to buy everything I need at a No Frills tiny grocery store?

      You may have a little bit of trouble finding some of the items, I won’t lie. I live in a large area, and there are a few items that even I haven’t been able to track down. It’s a lot of fruits and vegetables, but there were also a lot of foods that I had never tried before…like tempeh, nori rolls, certain squashes, etc.

    Hi, I am thinking about buying the reset, it is very costly for me so I am trying to assess if it is worth it. I was in amazing shape @ 6 years ago after my 3rd child but then had 3 more. The last was a c section n I gained a lot of weight. I am desperate to lose some of it. My goal is to lose 50 lbs in the next year. I’m a size 16 and well over 200 lbs. My ideal weight in size is 170 and a size 10. With my body type and muscle/bone mass..At that size I actually look like a lot smaller… Weird how that works the bmi says I’m still over weight but in reality I looked like I was starved… Can you email me…Rachael.Heningburg@yahoo.com… Ty
