Day 5

Transition Restart Day

What happens on the last Fast Reset Day?

Waking up is easy today, maybe you need less sleep. Keton bodies are detected in the urine.

You will get your first solid food today: cashew nuts. Please sense intensely the texture, the taste, salivation… dopamine!

Stick to your daily schedule and celebrate the last day. Maybe you are sad to leave the lightness of this experience, and/or happy to get back to a larger food choice and the pleasure of meeting others around a table.

Be prudent and follow our recommendations for a healthy, tasty and eco-responsible nutrition since tomorrow the regeneration phase will start!

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.

Enjoy your Apple Puree

At noon break the Fast Reset and enjoy the Apple Puree with the other package of cashew nuts. 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:

Warm up

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.

Tomorrow the regeneration phase will start! Enjoy this time and still be conscious during the regeneration. The lasting success of the Fast Reset depends on its success.
