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’m not the type of person who typically tries these so-called “fad diets,” but I’m at a point in my life where I can no longer be choosy. I came across the Body Reset Diet and the name alone captured my interest. I figured my body could use a little reset button. I also knew that metabolism was important for maintaining a healthy weight. So, I decided to give this a shot, and I’m glad I did. Exercise and I have never really gotten along, but if you use all the dietary principles outlined in the book, you don’t really have to do a lot of exercise. I literally go for walks around the neighborhood and I hardly even see them as “exercise.” Of course, the food is the primary engine for increasing your metabolic rate. Although it’s mostly liquefied (soups, smoothies, etc.), the food isn’t actually that bad.
Definitely worth your time and money

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 was not sure about this book. The reviews I read were a little mixed on how it works. I have been over weight all my life and have been on diet after diet. The Body Reset Diet out shines them all. It is very easy to follow. You can do any thing for 15 days. I will say that the first 2 days I was a little hungry, nothing I could not handle. But after that, hunger was not a problem. Use your imagination and your snacks and meals can have a large variety. The best thing about this diet, I lost 20 pounds in 13 days. I have more energy and just feel so much better all the way around. If you have trouble with getting the weight off I would suggest you try this diet. I am 60 years old and if I can lose that weight in such a short period of time imagine how fast younger people can lose it, It is so easy when you start losing weight very slowly or just stop, just back to Phase 1, and it will start you again.
A good "reset," but not to be used as a comprehensive tool

I needed a simple, clear cut method for getting my diet back on track after the holidays and this book delivered. The diet was reasonable and never left me hungry or feeling like I was denying myself. The smoothies are all delicious, the snacks are easy and the meal recipes simple to follow. The exercise advice was also very doable, I’ve found tremendous benefit from implementing his recommendation for walking 10,000 steps a day. And it really does get easier to incorporate all of his tips after you make a conscious effort to do so for the first 15 days.

This diet is ok. I have done it 3 times to get myself back on track, but I never make it past week 2. I get so tired of the smoothies! They are delicious, don’t get me wrong, but they are not a substitute for food. Sometimes during the “Smoothie only” week I would not even drink the dinner smoothie because I was so tired of drinking my food.
I’m a believer.

I am a 65 years old female and have gradually gained 40 pounds over the last 25 years. I’m a professional in a high stress career. I have tried just about every diet out there. I have bought diet book after diet book. I’ve tried the programs with meetings, etc. I lose a little and then regain more. When I tried the Body Reset Diet, beginning in January, 2016, I lost 7 pounds in 15 days. I then lost another 5 pounds. What is most amazing is that my weight doesn’t shoot back up after “falling off the wagon.” After a week’s vacation, I trudged to the scales expecting bad news and was nearly dumbstruck that almost all of the weight loss remained. When I gain a few pounds, I go back to the plan, and easily lose the few pounds I may have gained. I recommended the plan to a friend, and she is having the same results. I truly believe my metabolism has been reset. Comparing my cravings before and after the reset is like comparing night and day. I have been a sugar and candy junkie my whole life. When I’m doing the smoothies, I can live without all of the processed foods and sugar. I have recently started a “new” 15 day regimen. I’m motivated and encouraged which is a totally new way of thinking for me after so many failures. I’m a believer.
The best nutrition/diet book I’ve ever read

The best nutrition/diet book I’ve ever read, because it makes sense, provides supporting details and references, and is realistic to follow. It makes sense, because he addresses many of the deficiencies or weaknesses to other diets and workout strategies. The supporting details are nice, if only to show that he’s done research instead of just making it all up.
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 !!!
