We live in a generation where we’re always looking for the next great diet trick that will help us shed those last few pounds but do you ever think that losing weight and feeling good may be as easy as just eating right. The 3-Day Reset by Pooja Mottl takes us through a sensible and fairly easy way to change our bad cravings and instead begin to crave eating healthy foods that are delicious and actually good for us too. There are ten resets that include: sugar, wheat, salt, chocolate, yogurt, chicken, beverages, breakfast, salad, and takeout and each reset takes 3 days. Now I had every intention of trying one of these out – I already don’t eat salt, sugar, takeout, or chocolate (migraines) and I never touch beverages like sodas or specialty drinks. However I could do with changing my breakfast eating as well as wheat and yogurt. I’ve had a sick pup for the last few weeks so I didn’t get a chance to tackle breakfast but I plan to and I’ll make sure to post my results for everyone. In the meantime I want to give a brief overview of each reset and what I found interesting about it: Sugar – an average person eats about 22 teaspoons of sugar a day. This works out to about 13% of our daily calories. It’s no wonder we feel tired and sluggish. Sugar is only a pick me up for a very brief time before you tumble from that high. Even scarier is that sugar is in so many things we casually eat without even thinking like ketchup, waffles, and bread. Wheat – this is a tough one for me because I truly love my white bread and pasta but I fully intend to see if I can change that in the future. What amazes me about wheat is the processes and additives that go into taking the wheat and making it into our breads and pastas, etc. That alone had the ability to make me anxious about putting all those additives in my body. Not to mention that eating whole grain wheat flour instead of refined can lower your risk of diabetes and heart disease. Salt – this is one that I have done after finding out I had high blood pressure. I went cold turkey but what’s astonishing is just what foods you can find salt in and one that I found most surprising was eggs. This is a difficult reset to tackle because as Pooja says our tastebuds have become so accustomed to salt but you know after you do it for a while and become used to not using salt it’s next to impossible to eat something salty again. Chocolate – Not an issue for me as I haven’t eaten chocolate in years but I found it interesting to read about the history of chocolate that Pooja writes of. Chocolate is yet another thing that our modern world has over processed. Yogurt – I had read about my yogurt being fake long before Pooja related the same thing in her book. Once again it was interesting to read the history of yogurt and how different it is from the over processed stuff we eat today. I don’t eat any of the fancy yogurts they make today with all kinds of things added in – I eat boring old vanilla but I do want to try this reset and some of the recipes that Pooja has included just to see what I think. Just maybe I can leave my fake yogurt behind. Chicken – once again it’s a matter of how different we do things now from back in the past. It used to be that people prepared whole chickens yet now it’s chicken pieces or breasts. Even more disturbing is the chicken lunchmeat or nuggets that may come across as being healthy but really aren’t. In our house we still use whole chickens although not all the time but we do make stock and soups and I still say there’s nothing better than a homemade chicken soup. Beverages – this one speaks for itself. We are a nation that drinks a lot of soda pop and those fancy drinks. I’m not one of them but I do drink way more coffee than is healthy. I’m not sure people always stop to think of how much sugar and calories is in a can of pop or an iced coffee for example. It’s a little scary when you find that you could have had a meal for that iced coffee. Breakfast – I am a bad breakfast eater so this reset is on my radar. So many breakfast foods are so full of sugar and if you’re eating a take out breakfast that’s even worse. If you start your day that way how can you expect to feel good throughout the rest of it. Salad – normally we think a salad is good for us but stop – did you put salad dressing on it? That just made it unhealthy unless you’re using a homemade salad dressing. Pooja makes salad making something to take pleasure in. I used to make wonderful salads and dressing but somehow strayed away from that and I’d like to get back to eating simple but delicious salads so I’ll be revisiting this reset. Takeout – the last reset and maybe one of the most difficult for some. I haven’t eaten takeout in years because I have this thing about knowing what’s gone into my food and I know that takeout has a ton of salt which I won’t eat. Pooja also mentions these things as well as saying that you can usually take your favorite take out meal and make a much healthier version of it at home. I found the 3-Day Reset a very interesting book to go through. What I enjoyed most was the conversational tone to it and all the extra information like the history of these resets. I liked the tips & tools that are great to helping you succeed on your 3-day reset and the grocery lists, pantry swaps, and especially the recipes included at the end of each chapter are awesome. Recommended for those who are really interested in making a commitment to follow a better lifestyle where their eating is concerned. I do believe that when you try these resets you will notice a change in the way you taste food and the way you feel as I did with the few of the resets I’ve already done. If you want to get healthy and feel good The 3-Day Reset may be a great first step for you!

    I'm sure that most of you are like me and find it difficult to eat healthy most of the time. I live in a small town without a grocery store and need to drive 20-30 minutes to get to the nearest store. Some days I just don't have time to drive into town to get fresh, whole food. I may only go to the store once a week and sometimes the produce I buy during that trip goes bad before I get to use it. Just last week, one day after buying a pint of raspberries, they were all moldy. So, in our little c I'm sure that most of you are like me and find it difficult to eat healthy most of the time. I live in a small town without a grocery store and need to drive 20-30 minutes to get to the nearest store. Some days I just don't have time to drive into town to get fresh, whole food. I may only go to the store once a week and sometimes the produce I buy during that trip goes bad before I get to use it. Just last week, one day after buying a pint of raspberries, they were all moldy. So, in our little corner of the world, it can be tough to get fresh food. Thankfully, it is summer, and produce is more abundant and it makes eating healthy much easier. In THE 3-DAY RESET, Mottl isn't asking you to only eat whole foods and cut out all the other things we love to eat, like pizza or cake. But, she is asking you to change your cravings, just 72 hours at a time. That is why I loved the premise of this book. You can do anything for three days, right? Most of the ingredients were easy for me to find and since the reset was only three days, I didn't have any difficulty keeping everything fresh. Each chapter focuses on one craving area and breaks down how to reset your body from that particular craving. There are chapters on sugar, salt, wheat, chocolate, yogurt, chicken, beverage, breakfast, salad, and takeout. For this review I'm going to focus on the chapters for yogurt and beverages. In the yogurt chapter, Mottl describes how "low-fat" yogurt with fake sugars are not good for you. I learned a couple years ago, that fat-free and low-fat meant artificial sweeteners were added. Through that I even found out that all the stomach issues my mom was having were related to her daily consumption of "fat-free yogurt". The aspartame was ripping up her stomach and making her very sick. So both of us switched to Greek Yogurt. Now, I read labels and make sure there are no added sweeteners, sugars and extras. The chapter on Yogurt was a good reminder for me. Most people think Greek Yogurts are too thick and without flavor. I must disagree. With this 3-day reset, you can train your brain into liking this type of yogurt. My favorite way to eat Greek Yogurt is with fresh fruit like blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries mixed in and then sprinkled with a simple granola for that crunchy factor. I truly could eat this every morning. It is packed full of antioxidants and protein and will get you through your morning until lunch. Mottl includes recipes in the yogurt section including adding honey, apricots or lemon to your yogurt. The same idea applies to the beverage chapter. Really reading the labels on the packaged drinks you buy may shock you. If it says 0 calories, or no sugar added, double check that label. It is likely there are artificial sweeteners added. In fact, I pointed it out to a friend who was drinking one of the popular flavored waters and showed her that it had sucralose in it. These can be just as bad, if not worse, for you than drinking full-sugared beverages. Cutting out all processed beverages for three days may sound like a difficult task. You might be overwhelmed with headaches from a caffeine and sugar withdrawal as well as decreased energy and mood swings. Hang in there. You can replace your afternoon soda with one of Mottl's recipes for Citrus Zen Water. I've been flavoring my water with fruit like oranges, lemons, and blackberries and have been drinking more water and less sugared beverages because of it. I can't say any of these 3-Day Resets are easy, nor can you tackle them all at once. But, by changing even just a few of your daily cravings, you can make a big change in how your body looks and feels. Each chapter is full of recipes and grocery lists to make your reset as easy as possible. Next up for me is replacing my sugared creamer with milk or just drinking my coffee black. I know it won't be easy, but will cut some much needed sugar calories from my day. I highly recommed THE 3-DAY RESET for anyone looking for a gentle push towards eating healthy. Mottl doesn't get all bound up in research, but gets right to the point of how you can make simple changes to your daily routine. As you are reading, you feel like you are chatting with a friend rather than a clinician. After your first 3-Day Reset, you will feel so empowered that you will want to try another one!

    Review Excerpt; Overall, I like this book as I think it delivers on its premise--being aware of the quality of the food that you eat and offering relatively simple ways to eat better for your health and wellness. The 3-Day resets aren't threatening and while not necessarily enough time to form new habits, they are enough to give a taste (pun intended) of healthy eating that can inspire someone to keep going.

The 3-Day resets aren't threatening and while not necessarily enough time to form new habits, they are enough to give a taste (pun intended) of healthy eating that can inspire someone to keep going. There are 10 different resets: sugar, salt, wheat, chocolate, yogurt, chicken, salad, beverages, take-out food and breakfast so the reader can pick and choose the ones that pertain to them and/or complete one before moving on to the next to reset their diet over time. There is good background information and data on healthy eating and the 'whys' behind the resets and it is given in easy terms and a colorful format that keep it from being too clinical or boring. The recipes are generally easy to follow and I really liked three out of the four recipes I tried. If this is someone's first exposure to healthy cooking and eating, some ingredients may be unfamiliar and daunting, and some a bit expensive to buy at once. A few more tips on eating healthy and buying WAMPs on a budget could have been helpful. I also would have liked to see a few more recipes added to some of the broader resets (sugar, salt, wheat) to give more variety to the 3 days. Still, if you are interested in better health and improving your food choices without too much pain, The 3-Day Reset is a great resource to get started. You can see my full review, photos and reviews of some of the food I cooked--including the healthy Raspberry Chocolate Truffles recipe from the book at my blog post here: http://kahakaikitchen.blogspot.com/20... Note: A review copy of "The 3-Day Reset" was provided by the publisher and TLC Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review. I was not compensated for this review and as always my thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Who doesn't need a reset in their life, especially where their diet is concerned? The 3-Day Reset offers practical, and easy to navigate, choices.

Three days. Not bad, right. But, the food groups targeted are tough ones. Not that a diet worth anything would be easy. Since I'm already gluten-free, and thus don't have wheat in my diet, I tried the sugar reset. I won't lie. It was hard, but sugar is my biggest nemesis. For me, three days wasn't quite enough. I think I'd have to go at least a week to make real change. Plus, I wanted many more recipe options, although I really liked the one for Lemon-Lime soda. Beside the resets, Pooja Mottl emphasizes the need for WAMP (Whole And Minimally Process foods) in our diet. Think organic (Super WAMP). Basically, processed food is bad for us. Not shocking, but a great reminder. Overall, I found this an informative book. It definitely inspired me to make some changes in my diet. I just hope there's a recipe companion book coming out soon! Note: I received a complimentary copy for review purposes. A positive review was not requested or guaranteed; the opinions expressed are my own.

I've been incorporating homemade salads into my diet and have made choices that choose salad over other, less healthy options. Sounds like a success!

    This was a wonderful, informative, tasty book. I have a gluten intolerance, and this had some great gluten free recipes. I haven't actually tried the three day cleanse, but the recipes alone were incredible. I received this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. This was a wonderful, informative, tasty book.
