We’ve gone way overboard trying to beat the bulge. We’ve tried every diet out there—low-carb, low-fat, all-grapefruit—and spent hours toiling on treadmills and machines. The truth is, complicated diets and extreme cleanses promise nothing but short-term results, and overdoing it at the gym doesn’t always help you lose weight (in fact, over-the-top workouts actually supercharge your appetite, often causing you to eat more than you should). It’s time to hit the “reset button” and start over with a new perspective on weight loss.Now, expert trainer and New York Times bestselling author Harley Pasternak offers the ultimate plan to reboot your system and set you on the right path to a thinner, healthier, happier life. The Body Reset Diet is so simple yet so effective that you’ll immediately lose weight no matter how many times you’ve tried in the past. And you won’t boomerang back either. You’ll transition smoothly into a sustainable, nutrient-rich plan that keeps your metabolism primed to burn fat all day long—without ever setting foot in a gym!This three-phase program focuses on the easiest, most effective way to slim down: blending. The 5-day jump start includes delicious, expertly crafted smoothies (White Peach Ginger, Apple Pie, and Piña Colada, to name a few), dips, snacks, and soups—all customizable to your preferences and dietary restrictions—that keep you satisfied while boosting your metabolism. Over the following 10 days, you’ll reintroduce healthy combinations of your favorite foods along with the blended recipes to keep your metabolism humming, so you’ll continue to scorch calories and shed pounds. The plan also explains how the easiest form of exercise—walking—along with light resistance training is all it takes to achieve the celebrity-worthy physique you’ve always wanted. No equipment necessary!
Whether you’re looking to lose significant weight or just those last 5 pounds, The Body Reset Diet offers a proven program to hit the reset button, slim down, and get healthy in just 15 days—and stay that way for good!

I love how simple this book and the program are to follow! I lost 5 lbs during the fifteen day program and am continuing my smoothie and walking regimen a week later. The concept behind the program makes sense and to see results so quickly is very encouraging. I am a lifelong athlete who, now in my thirties, never would have thought that merely walking 10,000+ steps a day would make such a difference. I also never realized that I wasn’t already doing so! I lost 2" in my thighs and dropped a pant size. Yesterday was my first day back at the gym and I look forward to using Harley’s program to help me drop another 5-10 lbs and improve my fitness level. I would (and have) recommend this book to anyone!
I just finished my 15 days on this diet and succeeded in losing 6 lbs. I followed the diet strictly with only 2 exceptions – I had one alcoholic drink on day 9(a margarita that tasted so good!) and one day (day 10) I put half and half in my coffee. I lost 4 lbs in the first 5 days, and 2 in the subsequent 10 days. I only felt hungry one evening and was never dizzy or lacking energy. I think the diet did “reset” my metabolism. It helped me get back on track with clean eating. I will continue to have smoothies for breakfast and sometimes lunch, and even on evenings when I am short on time and can’t cook a complete meal.
My background is – 47 year old mom of 3 kids (ages 15, 13, 11). I am 5’8″ and weighed 155 lbs to start, now weighing 149 lbs. I have always been fairly active but had put on a few extra pounds recently due to a hectic schedule. Because I am an active person, I think I could have done more vigorous exercise to lose additional weight – but I didn’t want to become overly hungry so I stuck to the 10K steps per day, eventually adding the light strength training. I used the Fitbit Ultra to track my steps/activity, and MyFitnessPal to track my caloric intake. Both tools helped me keep my caloric intake below my calories burned. I will continue to use these tools to stay on track. I do wish that I had taken body measurements – like waist, thighs, etc. I can see a visible difference and wonder if the scale isn’t telling the whole story. Good luck to all you try the diet! I definitely recommend it!
This is not a diet! It’s a lifestyle change!!
Immediate results! I started slimming down after 7 days and by the 15th day I was down 8 lbs! I didn’t stop there, I’m on my 19th day having 2 smoothies a day (a.m. & p.m.) with a healthy lunch. I’m not a big fan of the scale because you can become disheartened if you don’t like how it reads so I’m letting my wardrobe do the talking and it’s feel like Christmas all over again discovering clothes in my closet that were too snug to wear before. This is my blueprint for the rest of my life!! Harley made this so easy for me. I don’t diet but have always tried to eat healthily along with lots of exercise. However, after a hysterectomy in my early 40′s and soon to be 52, nothing was working. I was doing all the things I used to do to stay healthy but couldn’t keep the lbs from creeping on. My metabolism was non-existent and my BMI was disappointing! I found The Body Reset easy to incorporate into my already busy schedule and easy to maintain. His smoothie recipes, snacks and SS meal options are comprehensive with lots of variety for someone like me who gets bored very easily! I was never hungry in between smoothies and I still had my snacks, that’s magic!! Having personally experienced such great results made me more confident while on vacation recently. I wasn’t terrified to eat because I was without my smoothies. I was still very conscious of eating healthily as much as I could but I didn’t feel limited in the types of foods I could have, I stayed away from high carbs and desserts so that I could enjoy a cocktail or two (smile) and knowing I had my blueprint for success waiting when I got back home made my vacation much more enjoyable!! I feel totally renergized, motivated and unstoppable! I didn’t think it was possible to Reset this body, but it was!! Thank you Harley! Take that BMI !!!

If you REALLY want to do it…
Lost 52lbs.between August and December… Following this plan and making sure that I was close to 10,000 steps were thr key. AND, things that I would never eat if on my plate, my wife did a great job of blending it in with fruits, protein power, and it tasted great.. The multiple recipes in the book are a plus !!
The Body Reset Diet Book
The book was an easy read with good information. The author really breaks down the diet and the reason for his choices. The smoothie recipes are easy to make and all 15 of them (5 white, 5 red and 5 green) were all very good. I also liked that you could tweek them to avoid ingredients you don’t like for those you do like. Also had lots of easy snack suggestions. The plan worked for me.
