Have you ever been stuck in the cycle of eating as healthy as possible throughout the day, and then indulging in sugary treats later at night - leaving you feeling sick, bloated and powerless to your cravings?
Or maybe you’ve been trying your best to get rid of those extra few pounds around your midsection - you feel like you’ve tried just about everything, but can’t seem to figure out why they won’t come off?
What about those days when you're just so busy that you're constantly finding yourself grabbing the most convenient food available instead of the most nutritious choice?
Or perhaps you’re just in a place in your life where you’re feeling a little complacent with your current nutritional habits and are ready to shake things up and get excited about eating healthy again?
Yup, I've been there.
As a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), online transformation & wellness coach and soon-to-be Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN), you’d think I’d have my own nutrition all figured out.
But I don’t always eat perfectly, either. (After all, I’m human!)
As someone who is constantly on-the-go, my schedule is jam-packed with meetings, content shoots, writing, editing, sending emails, training clients, commuting, creating training plans and so, so much more.
During those times when I’m most overwhelmed, I often find myself gravitating to my old bad habits - looking for the quickest available meal options, giving into my sugar cravings and throwing most of my nutritional knowledge out the window.
And although it's totally normal to have those days (or weeks!), letting my bad habits take the front seat has always resulted in feelings of bloating, sluggishness, water retention and ultimately, just not feeling very good about myself and my body.
I knew what I needed was a RESET.
So, digging into my nutritional knowledge, I decided to write out a 5-day meal plan that was designed to eliminate all of those pesky foods and substances that typically cause inflammation in the diet.
That way, I could have some structure to follow during those busy weekdays (without even needing to think about it!) and I could also give my body a well-deserved break from all the foods that were sabotaging my overall success.
And that's how the 5-DAY RESET was born!
The focus of the 5-DAY RESET is to REDUCE BLOATING & INFLAMMATION in the body by eliminating some of the most common inflammatory foods and substances in our diet - such as processed sugar, gluten, lactose, and caffeine.
Over the course of 5 days, your body will start to be cleansed from common toxins whilst enhancing liver function, promoting a healthy digestive system, stimulating the metabolism, removing fluid retention and eliminating most cravings.
By the end of this program, you should start to notice some amazing physical (and mental!) benefits and will likely become much more optimistic about your abilities to control the way your body FEELS through your diet.
Overall, I want you to finish this program feeling a bit happier, healthier and more beautiful - both inside & out
To be crystal clear: The 5-Day Reset is not a diet. It’s not a “quick fix” solution. It’s just a five-day plan that encourages eating more nourishing, whole foods that will ultimately help you to feel like the healthiest, happiest and best version of yourself possible.
I'll take you step-by-step through the entire process - from shopping for groceries, to meal prepping, to honing in on your "daily focus" and keeping you motivated as you conquer the next 5 days.

Q: WHEN DOES THE 5-DAY RESET START?
You will be delivered the first email to start your 5-Day Reset within MOMENTS of signing up!
From then, you will receive a new email (including tips for getting started, your printable grocery list and, of course, your daily meal plans) over the course of the next few days.
Note: It is suggested that you prepare to begin your 5-Day Reset on a Monday - that way, you can start fresh at the beginning of a new week!
Q: HOW DOES THE 5-DAY RESET WORK?
The way it works is simple!
All of the meals within this 5-Day Reset focuses on REDUCING BLOATING & INFLAMMATION in the body by slowly eliminating some of the most common inflammatory foods and substances in our diet - such as processed sugar, gluten, lactose, and caffeine.
Instead of eliminating ALL inflammatory foods at once (which is very difficult and not sustainable), each day you will eliminate only one food/substance from your diet to ensure you are able to stick to these small changes. Every day after that will add onto the previous day until you have eliminated a total of FIVE of the common foods that cause digestive upset.
For example, on Day 1, your meal plan will aim to eliminate ONE of the common inflammatory foods from your diet. On Day 2, the meal plan will eliminate TWO. On Day 3, THREE. (And, so on, and so forth…) By Day 5, you should start to notice a dramatic change in your body’s water retention, bloating and digestive abilities.
The focus of your daily meal plans will look a little something like this...
Day 1: Eliminate processed sugars.
Day 2: Eliminate processed sugars + caffeine.
Day 3: Eliminate processed sugars + caffeine + dairy.
Day 4: Eliminate processed sugars + caffeine + dairy + gluten.
Day 5: Eliminate processed sugars + caffeine + dairy + gluten + most carbohydrates/sodium.
By Day 5, your body will start to be cleansed from common toxins whilst enhancing liver function, promoting a healthy digestive system, stimulating the metabolism, removing fluid retention and (ideally) eliminating most cravings.
Q: WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE MEAL PLANS?
Each daily meal plan includes a Breakfast, Lunch, Snack and Dinner and is designed using an 1800 calorie diet, which is slightly below the recommended daily calorie intake for the average female, in order to promote sustainable fat loss. If you are currently consuming less (or more) than 1800 calories per day and wish to continue doing so, feel free to eliminate your snack (or add another one!) as you see fit.
A little disclaimer; however...
Modifying the meal plans to suit your current calorie goals will not deliver the same results as following the plan exactly as it is written. (So, please be mindful of this if you choose to modify!)
Note: The 5-Day Reset currently does not offer a vegetarian or vegan meal plan. If this is something you would love to see in the future, please send me an email! The more demand I hear for a specific diet type, the more likely I’ll be able to offer it sooner!
Q: HOW MUCH TIME WILL MEAL PREPPING TAKE OUT OF MY BUSY SCHEDULE?
Not much time at all! (Realistically, it should take you only a few hours on a Sunday to get everything ready.)
That's because all of the meals within the 5-Day Reset are made with minimal ingredients that mainly include whole foods only. This means that it shouldn’t take you very long to prepare, cook or assemble your meals - whether it’s on the fly, or in advance.
However, since I’m a HUGE advocate for meal prep, I’ll also be sending you an email that includes some helpful tips to get you started, your 5-Day Reset Grocery List, PLUS some frequently-used recipes that are helpful to prep before you begin.
That way, you’ll have everything you need to ensure you’ll be able to grab your meals & go as you need!
Q: WHAT IF I CAN’T START IT IMMEDIATELY?
Don’t worry - you can start the 5-Day Reset at ANY time that works best for you!
By signing up, you will have UNLIMITED access to all of the meal plans, downloads and emails sent to you over the course of the sequence. This means that you can choose to start (or re-start) the 5-Day Reset whenever it fits your life and schedule.
Q: CAN I ADD OTHER SPICES/SEASONINGS TO THE MEAL PLAN?
Yes! The meal plan was designed to be as basic as possible, but if your pantry is full of spices and you want to add something not listed, you can feel free to do so.
Just be mindful of the salt/sodium content overall! But, the rest of the spices are free game.
Q: DO THE ORDER OF THE MEALS MATTER?
You can feel free to reorder the meals as it fits in your schedule. If you prefer to eat your "snack" for breakfast, and take your breakfast with you as a snack, that's totally fine! Just make sure to follow each day of the meal plan in the order it was sent to you.
Q: WHAT ABOUT ALCOHOL?
The 5-Day Reset will work best if you eliminate alcohol consumption completely while doing it.
