Where can I find brand recommendations for certain products?

We have a list of recommended products under ther “resources” section in your menu.

What if I am vegetarian or vegan?

Nutrition is very individual and personal. Some individuals may need more protein due to high intensity exercising, some may opt for a vegan diet, and others may have food allergies to ingredients we use in our recipes. While we try to provide a well rounded meal plan, please keep in mind that this is also not a one-size-fits-all plan. We will provide substitution recommendations when possible, but we recommend posting questions in the Facebook community so that everyone can see your question and the responses.

What if my local grocery store does not carry a product needed in the recipe?

We understand that accessiblity may be an issue. There are great online resources like Amazon and Thrive Market that can ship products directly to your door. If you in a country where certain products are not available, ingredient substitutions can be made. You can find many by searching online or you are welcome to ask in the Facebook group and we will help where we can. 

What if I live outside of the US where certain products are not available?

When will the following week documents be posted?

Meal plans and workouts will be posted Wednesdays the week prior.

What are the guidelines for eating out?

We recommend steering clear of the ‘foods to avoid’ when eating out, however this is about progress and not perfection.

Both gluten and dairy are also common food
sensitivities. It’s not encouraged to avoid these foods forever but the goal is to remove them from your system and then mindfully reintroduce them after the 28 days. You may identify symptoms after reintroducing these foods and it will be up to you to determine what works best for you after the initial 28 days.

We also encourage you to remove added sugar from
your diet during the HealthySelf Reset. Reducing added sugar intake is single handedly one of the best changes that everyone can make to improve their health.

What if I am cooking for more than one person?

The meal plans are meant to serve one so you may want to double or triple if you are cooking for multiple people. Refer to the number of servings per recipe and divide accordingly to figure out how many batches to make to have enough for everyone!

Can I drink coffee?

Yes! (We know, what a relief!) Just make sure that if you use any creamers or additives, to make sure they are HealthySelf Reset compliant.
