The RESET Food Plan:

 

The RESET Food plan itself is based on the following allowed and not allowed food items. We have transformed the lives of many patients with this simple plan. Follow the food plan and your health is very likely to improve. The phases and shakes (optional) are based on years of experience and offer the greatest results with a simple road map leading to maintenance. For patients of Cassone Wellness, our team will guide you through the phases while evaluating your progress and modifying the custom herbal and nutritional prescriptions as needed. This is careful attention to functional diagnosis and custom prescribing is the heart and soul of holistic medicine.  

There are no caloric restrictions to the RESET Food Plan. It is not specifically a high fat nor a high protein food plan. Although it is a lowered carbohydrate plan (because of eliminating obvious high carbohydrate sources), there are plenty of carbohydrates in vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds which are allowed. It is easy to still consume 100 grams (net) carbohydrates which many consider to be an upper limit for what the average human body can handle without suffering negative effects. 

 

The RESET Food Plan Instructions: 
Allowed: vegetables, nuts, seeds, pork, lamb, poultry, beef, fish, and eggs (list of allowed vegetables).

 

Not Allowed: grains, starches, beans, milk, and sugars (bread, pasta, potato, rice, corn, chips, oats, crackers, etc.). Carbohydrate sources will be primarily from nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables.

Allowed but Limited: fruits/berries (no more than one serving a day), coffee, dressings, sauces, cheese (including cottage cheese), plain yogurt, stevia/xylitol, liquor with non-sugar mixer (e.g. vodka, soda water, lemon)

That’s it!

That is the RESET Food Plan that has made such a difference in so many lives. It is very simple and very doable! The plan can be followed without the phases with plenty of benefits. The phases (in the next chapters) expand on the plan to deepen the effects and should be followed for the best results and for those with chronic conditions; however, the plan by itself as described can be followed strictly (3 weeks minimum but up to a year or more depending on personal goals) to gain health and then followed as needed or with personal modifications for maintenance.
