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 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 !!!

I am a person who consistently works out and has tried many different methods. I have about 10 lbs I’d like to lose. Recently, I started working with a trainer and began weight training, which is a bit different for me. I needed to get out of this rut I was in and although weight training works, you don’t see fast weight loss. Harley’s book is spot on and his idea that women need to see fast results in order to stay motivated is absolutely true. With weight training and eating healthy, I lost 1.5 lbs in 3 weeks. Needless to say I went on vacation in between as well, but still I wasn’t quite motivated as I was working so hard and hardly losing any weight. I bought this book and I am only on day four today and I have lost 6 lbs already! I am not starving at all (trust me I’ve tried those diets too). The smoothies are quite filling, I get to drink coffee, I eat snacks….it’s great. Although he recommends walking 10,000 steps per day, I still go to the gym and I have more than enough energy to complete my workouts. This was definitely what I needed to get back on track! I feel great, I am not hungry, and this plan is realistic. I highly recommend this book.
BEST DIET BOOK I HAVE EVER USED

For several years, I have had a lot of trouble losing weight, trying different diet books ideas, but on this one I lost 5 pounds in the first 6 days, and would have lost more if I had exercised more.
A program that will work for Life!

I started this program last Wednesday and I feel GREAT! I have not been hungry at all and I have lost about 6 pounds. I wear my pedometer every where I go to get 10,000 steps in each day. Yesterday, my kids got ice cream and I walked 2000 steps while they enjoyed themselves. I feel like this is finally the right fit for me after trying so many other programs. Everyone can walk and everyone can mix up a smoothie in a blender with the easy recipes in this book. Harley Pasternak has reallly made a perfect program.

Everything written on the summary page for this book, and it’s proven strategy within, is 100% true! My 1/1/2014 New Year’s resolution, to lose weight, has been met with tremendous success using the information in this book. I have set myself on a course of forever health and happiness. I am eating all whole foods and have high levels of energy. I feel like I am getting the best fuel to improve my health and the weight loss is a bonus! If you have this book, a good blender, and a Costco membership (optional, but you can get great deals on fresh produce and yogurt), you are armed with the tools to set a course to change your life.
