Reset your metabolism – 21 day Reset Challenge

Hi friends,

Back in January, I kicked off the first Reset (whole foods) challenge as a way to clean up our eating after the holidays and eliminate sugar overgrowth in the gut, sharing simple holistic health tips in daily emails. Those little changes can make a big difference.  It was so rewarding to see the many success stories and “aha” moments!

In April, I hosted the second challenge with an emphasis on detoxifying our bodies and unclogging the liver (spring is the ideal time for this!) Again, we had a fantastic time supporting each other and learning how different foods made us feel as we slowly added things back in.

Now it’s time for round three… for September, the focus will be on our metabolism and I’ll be sharing some of the “health” foods that can wreak havoc on your system.

Let me tell you, I am in need of this! The breast feeding hunger is crazy and I’m not making the best choices these days. Less sleep always leads to more snacking and sweets for me, too.  I’m ready to clean up my eating (while obviously keeping my intake very high for milk supply).

September 21 Day Reset

Each reset challenge has new recipes and a 21 day sample meal plan, so you can absolutely repeat the challenge.  I find every 3-4 months is an ideal time for a “reset” and plan to continue the January, April, September schedule.

You can check out some of the success stories from April’s challenge here.


As in the other challenges, you will receive a 21 day sample meal plan, recipes, grocery lists plus bonus tips in daily emails

This reset will also include information on the health foods that harm metabolism and a meal replacement list with suggestions for alternatives.

Everyone has the option to participate in a private Facebook group for additional support to share successes, challenges, recipes, tips, etc.

The challenge will run from Monday, September 8th- Sunday, September 28th.

The first 20 participants can use the code “earlybird” for a $10 discount.

  1. I am not great at challenges, but with moving this summer I seem to have gone way off track. September seems like a good time of the year to start especially with the kids back at school. All signed up!

  2. Great idea Laura! You are just a mecca for helpful posts! I am sure many will benefit from this! Thankfully, I am in my serious part of marathon training, and have my diet under wraps right now. I am getting the right foods, and enough calories to fuel my training. I struggle the most after a major race as I tend to go crazy with sugar! Also Christmas time is tough….so many goodies everywhere!

  3. I think this is definitely the time of year people want to do a “restart” and I think for so many people the switch in mindset can be really helpful and set off longer term changes. And I would just go with the nursing hunger. It’s real and means you need to eat A LOT! Looking back it amazes me how much I was able to eat and actually had trouble keeping weight on while nursing, especially as the months went on and they were eating a ton!

  4. The winter is the hardest for me, as my body naturally wants to eat and add fluff before cyclically shedding it the Spring and Summer.

    I will say, however, there are perks to things like mint Oreos that I craved post long swim yesterday. In going to the freezer, I learned my step-son had accidentally left a burner on the stove. (oops!) I’ll take an Oreo over a fire any day!

  5. I’m right there with you on breastfeeding making you hungry all the time! Mirella is 6 months old and I’m still hungry all the time!

    Fall/Winter (or the holidays) is the hardest time of year for me to eat well. Its hard to resist all of the wonderful baked goods, especially anything made with pumpkin and gingerbread!

  6. I had a baby July 30th, so pretty close to you! I’m a runner as well. I definitely want to do the challenge especially since it coincides with our last meal (from friends) being brought to us right before the start date. I’m so ready to clean up my eating. With three kids three and under I tend to grab the high calorie/high sugar snack foods to suppress my hunger. I will get time tomorrow to register!!

  7. I don’t think I’m ready for this challenge just yet. Too many changes over here for me to tackle one more thing BUT I think it’s awesome and I’m sure a lot of people will absolutely love it! I did one in the past and it was a lot easier then I thought (somewhat 🙂 and I will be ready for another in the winter I’m sure!!

  8. Hi Laura! I’m doing the reset! Thanks for offering it! I eat pretty healthy, but like a lot of these other people who have posted comments, breastfeeding inclines me to stuff whatever I can find (chocolate chips, cookies)into my mouth when I’m hungry (which is often), so I’m looking forward to controlling this bad habit.
