Day 2

First Fast Reset Day

What happens on the first Fast Reset Day?

On DAY 2, the metabolic switch from glucose to fat and ketones takes place. You might feel a bit tired or have some strange moods or feelings. They show that your system is adapting to the new situation and that autophagy and apoptosis – your cell cleaning mechanisms – have been activated. Stick to your daily schedule, especially a midday break and outdoor activities. Please complete the daily questionnaire in the morning and evening. Take some minutes to think about your day: what are you thankful for, what were the challenges, the highlights, any moments when you felt a lack of motivation. What did you do to feel better or overcome a difficult situation?

Science behind the 5 Day Fast Reset Experience, Day 2

In this video, Dr. Françoise Wilhelmi de Toledo and Victor Wilhelmi focus on what happens to your body, mind and soul each day.

Morning Greeting

After waking up look at the (blue) sky, greet the new day while the production of melatonin stops and melanopsin, the wake up hormone, takes over. Do light stretching exercises.

Warm morning reflection

Practice some kind of meditation and give energy to the goals that you have set for your reset experience e.g rebalance or interrupt undesired behavioral patterns, diminish inflammation, lift your mood, prevent aging.

Noon

Enjoy your Reset Fast Soup

At noon take a break to eat a Reset Fast Soup of your choice and mix it with 35 g chickpea puree. Top it up with some healthy, cold-pressed 10 g Oil (1 tbsp) that is rich in omega 3, DHEA and EPA. We recommend to drink the Fasting Minerals 30 min before the soup. Find a place to lie down afterwards, even if it’s only 15 minutes (ideal 30 minutes). Practice a power nap if needed.

Keep moving

Find enough time (ideally up to 90 minutes) to do exercise (outdoors if possible), such as walking in nature, climbing stairs, cycling to work etc. You can break up the time for this throughout the day.

As an extra

Cutting back on carbohydrates over five days triggers the metabolic switch that makes this experience so beneficial. However, if you feel a moment of weakness due to slight hypoglycaemia or you just want to titillate your tastebuds, try the following:

If you need something in-between or just a warm feeling in your stomach, add 1 tsp Reset Soup Essence to 200 ml warm water and mix it to a clear bouillon.

Honey to save your day

Take a little spoon of honey – but watch out, it’s only if you really need it, so make sure you don’t get hooked and control your intake.
