Are you still feeling this after your most recent celebration or BBQ? Here’s my 7×7 plan (7 steps for 7 days) – that I follow after anytime I indulge so that I can reset my body to avoid any flare ups. Make sure to save the link to this blog so you can reference it whenever you go a bit overboard.
1. Maintain a 16 hour fasting period
I’ll eat for 8 hours from 10am to 6pm and fast for 16 hours from 6pm to 10 am. This way my gut microbiome will get a chance to restore and rebuild.
2. Take a spoonful of olive oil after the last meal
It will help my gallbladder and liver flush out the toxins.
3. Zero grains
I usually try to stick to all paleo and on occasion I have some gluten free bread that’s soy free, GMO free, best if it’s sprouted. But during the reset I won’t budge and won’t have the grain.
4. Less meat and more plant based than ever
Hummus, tempeh, almond cheese, vegan cashew pesto, hemps seeds, peas, lentils, etc are all friends this week. Often I won’t have meat at all during the reset week. The less burden on your digestive system, the faster you recuperate.
5. Include paleo protein shakes
One of my favorites is VegeMeal DF vanilla from Designs For Health and it saves the day during this week for me. (It’ll give you a much needed break from cooking)
6. Drink lots of fluids and green drinks
Some of my favorites are Paleo Greens in lemon/lime from Designs For Health. It balances the pH and helps naturally detox.
7. I take digestive rest supporting supplements
My go to’s include: Liver GI Detox by Pure Encapsulations, Digestzymes with Betaine by Designs for Health and Magnesium Citrate by Moss Nutrition.
