Incorporating reset days and reward meals into your eating habits make eating healthy more sustainable, realistic, and easier to stick to.

  • Reset Days are entire days of significantly increased calories throughout your meals, built intermittently into your weeks.
  • A reward meal is a single meal of increased calories in a day typical day on your program.

You really can enjoy the foods you love, and even the foods you thought you’d have to say goodbye to while dieting. 

And if you eat the foods you LOVE at the right time, with the right portions, you will actually maximize your fat loss.

But how, you ask? Keep reading!

Weight Loss Is a Mental Game

With past diets you’ve tried, have you ever thought your body can do anything, but your brain just might explode at the mental stress of worrying about everything that goes into your diet? All the “rules” you have to follow, all the foods you have to avoid, all the cravings you’re battling…

When you learn how to win the mental game of dieting, your chance of losing weight are SO much higher.

This is where Reset Days and Reward Meals come in! They help to:

  • Combat feelings of deprivation, common with traditional diets: When you incorporate Reset Days and Reward Meals into your eating plans, you’re able to eat foods you love!
  • Satisfy cravings: No need to constantly be battling cravings and saying “no.”
  • Help you feel balanced while still reaching your goals: Losing weight and being healthy is all about balance. It’s about creating sustainable changes that you can actually stick with and be completely happy about!

More Calories = Speedy Metabolism

Implementing reset days or a reward meal will help your metabolism operate at a higher rate while you’re in a calorie deficit. You might be wondering how eating MORE calories while you’ve been in a calorie deficit actually HELPS you lose fat. It’s a great question that has a physiological explanation!

When you want to lose body fat, you have to create a calorie deficit. Meaning, you have to eat fewer calories than you burn. After a period of time in a calorie deficit (burning more calories than you consume), you might start to notice your weight loss progress plateaus and your weight loss either slows down or stops.

Here’s why:

  • A little thing called adaptive thermogenesis happens—our bodies become more efficient at expending energy.
  • Your metabolic rate (the rate at which your body burns calories) decreases to accommodate for your lower calorie intake, so you can preserve more energy.
  • This means a deeper calorie deficit is required to continue seeing results: either by consuming even FEWER calories, or increasing exercise.

Your body is actually more interested in preserving energy to function than it is in a six-pack—bummer, right?!

So, to combat this, you want to periodically build in calorie overages to reset your metabolism and make sure that it stays healthy and humming along. It’s also important for helping repair muscles and other tissues.

This is where the Reset Days and Reward Meals come in! Once you have your day of increased calories, or that one delicious meal that is higher in calories, you go right back into that calorie deficit and take one more step closer to your goals.

Reset days and reward meals help keep metabolic rate high so you can stay on the fast track to weight loss. You get to eat the “treat meals” you love, and when used as part of an overall plan, they will actually HELP you reach your goals. WIN-WIN!!

By resetting your metabolism, you can keep losing weight for a longer period of time than if you were to just restrict calories.

It’s important to note that reset days and reward meals should be done strategically. They should be done with a purpose, and be intentional.

Reset days and reward meals are not excuses to eat whatever you want, whenever you want. It’s still very important to be mindful of what and how much you are eating. At the end of the day, weight loss comes down to burning more calories than we consume.
