Doing a Cleanse & Revive turns your body into a healthy fat-burning machine. Crafting your body to perform at it's highest potential and with high intensity strength and cardio training it hits your body into the "After Burn" mode creating the best burn up to three days after your workouts.
Reviving your metabolism is about making food choices that help support the body’s normal energy-producing, fat-burning, muscle-building functions. Our bodies were designed to burn fat as our primary source of fuel, but our modern diets have greatly compromised that function resulting in the escalating numbers of overweight/obese individuals. And these numbers continue to grow in spite of a robust, sixty billion dollar a year diet and weight loss industry. It almost seems like the more we diet, the fatter and sicker we become. In fact, over 95% of everyone who loses weight by dieting, gains more back than when they started.
Science has finally broken the code on this phenomenon. It turns out that fat loss has as much or more to do with hormones than calories-in, calories-out. Hormones are signaling molecules that trigger specific cells into action. They regulate virtually every aspect of your body’s day-to-day functioning. In the case of fat-burning, your body makes a hormone that regulates when and how much fat should be converted to energy.
MEET LEPTIN Leptin is the “fat-burning hormone,” and regulates metabolism and hunger signals, too. When leptin works as it’s supposed to, your body will burn excess accumulated fat in an efficient manner.
When we pile in amounts of sugar, grains, starches, processed foods, along with fluids that give us no benefit can cause chronic inflammation in the body that can drastically interfere with the brain’s efficiency to read the levels of leptin in the blood. The brain's inability to “see” leptin, which is also known as “leptin resistance” or “leptin insensitivity,” throws your fat-burning functions off course.
The result is your body relentlessly reserves excess fat, no matter your body type. Unfortunately there is no medication that can correct leptin resistance, in fact the typical weight loss diet can actually make this problem worse. This explains why the diet and weight loss industry has failed to offer solutions that support permanent long-term results for life long changes in nutrition and exercise. We become discouraged with our progress so we quit.
This “Cleanse & Revive” nutritioin plan was crafted over 20 years of research and study on how to help your body shift your metabolism back to the efficient, fat-burning machine it was created to be.
The program is divided into three phases: the initial 2 phases--”Cleanse & Revive” and “Impact”—were developed as a "reset button" so that you have a simple but very effective way to change your nutrition that can be repeated as many times as you need to reach your goals. In turn it gives you the tools and knowledge to achieve your lifestyle transformation that is the true goal of this program.
The 3rd phase, “Divine Health” (maintenance mode) follows once you reach your goals, and is meant to be pulled out of your tool box for healthy living anytime you need to support your leptin function and maintain healthy levels of body fat. In all three phases it’s a convenient solution for meeting the nutritional goals by providing the body with the right combination of fats, healthy carbohydrates, fiber and more to promote the body’s long-term health.
"Without your health everything else becomes harder to deal with."

Whichever your choice ends up being, now is the time that you will add into your plan vacation mealsinto your weekly eating plan. A “Vacation Meal” is a meal that most people recognize as a "cheat meal" but you should never feel guilty about eating food, it becomes an emotional roller-coaster if that happens. Everyone deserves a vacation from our daily lives so now you get to take a Nutrition Vacation a meal you that you can't find on the Cleanse & Reboot phases or that you have to worry about consuming. It’s a Vacation from your everyday nutrition plan.
“Vacation” Meal Guidelines
Eat 2 Vacation Meals per week. (It often works best to combine them into the same day.)
Eat the foods you crave: This is not a cheat meal, so don’t feel guilty for eating the foods you really want.
Don’t overdo it; eating to the point of misery is not the purpose. Think Portion Control!
Don’t skip a meal in order to prepare yourself for your vacation meal
Don’t keep left-overs. They’ll just tempt you in the days that follow.
