Hitting your reset button regularly is a good thing

Hitting Your Reset Button - Angie Gray Wellness

About once a month my body says to me, “Angie, it’s time for a RESET.” This a good thing for a couple of reasons:

  1. My natural biorhythm is working perfectly. Gotta love that!
  2. A 5-day cleanse makes me feel incredibly renewed on several levels.

I get a lot of questions about doing a 5-day reset. The most popular question is, “Does this reset thing really help me manage my weight?”

Diets don’t work; lifestyle changes do

I’ll be straight-up with you, it’s not about losing weight. I hear a lot of gasps right after I say this. But, it’s true. A reset is exactly what the name implies–it’s a RESET. We are resetting our bodies back to a healthy baseline so we can jump-start our healthy habits. And of course we all know that healthy habits lead to a healthy lifestyle.

Strategies about creating habits and forming certain intentions are not tricks, but once we form them, they are more likely to kick in automatically right when we need them.

~Jean Fain, LICSW, MSW, is a Harvard Medical School

This is why resets works. Resets are lifestyle changes not diets. Diets don’t work. Lifestyle changes do work. This is what the science says. We all know this, but most of keep trying dieting and continue to set ourselves up for failure.

Diets do not work. The scientific evidence is clear as can be that cutting calories simply doesn’t lead to long-term weight loss or health gains.

We suspect most dieters have realized this by now too. And yet, here they are again, setting the same weight loss goal this year that they set last year.”

~Traci Mann Professor of Psychology, University of Minnesota

Pro tip

Humans are generally lazy. A nicer way of phrasing this is that in general we are so efficient that we tend to follow the path of least resistance! πŸ˜‰

This desire for taking the easy approach is a blessing in disguise. When it comes to lifestyle diet changes, this is thee golden rule.

Conversely, remove all the foods that you know are bad for you and contribute to excessive weight gain. Bottom line is give yourself easy access to the good stuff. Make it harder to be able to get your hands on the not-so-good stuff.
