Testimonial from my last RESTART class:
"The RESTART program has changed my life! Learning what certain foods do to and for my body was eye opening - a real game changer. Growing up in the corn country of Midwest, the Standard American Diet was king and I feel that I'd never really learned how to eat. I thought I was eating healthy, yet couldn't figure out why I was so exhausted and sick all the time. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to give myself the gift of this class. I have more energy than I've had in years! I have fewer mood swings, I've lost a total of 17 lbs. and I have adopted a whole new lifestyle thanks to what I learned from this class. The online classroom space was supportive and fit my personal schedule beautifully. Ute's instruction is knowledgeable, supportive, fun, and exactly what I needed to get my life back. THANK YOU!!!" ~Whitney, Beaverton, OR
I wrote a blog post about RESTART last year:
I've been talking about the RESTART® a lot lately, and I think it's about time I talked about in a bit more detail!
The RESTART Program is a 5 week nutrition class for anyone who wants to learn how to push that RESTART button, but doesn't want to do it alone. Built into the 5 weeks is a 3 week "detox". I'm not a huge fan of the word detox, so I will call it a challenge instead. It is a challenge to restart your health and wellness, to eat well, reward your body for its hard work.
Why do we make it 21 days? Because it has been proven over and over, that it takes us about 21 days to start a new habit. And we want this challenge to be much more than that. We want to see your success, and we want you to continue on this path to better health and wellness.
Why do we offer this as a group class? Because it is incredibly helpful to have a group of people to discuss problems, to offer support, to share your progress!
What is offered during the 5 weeks? My support as a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner first and foremost. You will receive weekly handouts, recipe recommendations, and of course a platform to chat during the program and after it is over. Check out the details right here!
Week 1: Preparation! You will introduce yourself to the class, fill out a questionnaire, talk about your intention for the 5 weeks, and learn what to eat and what not to eat and why!
Week 2: Digestion! You will learn how digestion really works, talk about poop, dietary fine tuning, and suggested supplements.
You will also start your actual "detox" this week for 21 days.
Week 3: Blood Sugar Regulation! You will learn how blood sugar is supposed to work, stages of dysglycemia, how to find balance once again, and all the different sugars out there. You will also discuss your progress with the group.
Week 4: Fats! What are the roles of fats? Why do you need them? What are some myths and facts, and which fats are the good fats? There will be room for discussion, questions, and always for some laughter.
Week 5: Celebration & Moving Forward! You've made it through 21 days of eating a new diet. You've created a new habit. Now it's time to talk about moving forward on your own. Also, learn how to reintroduce foods after the RESTART Program!
In the meantime I've taught quite a few of these classes, and I am incorporating so much more information than I did in the beginning. I am a big believer in making lifestyle changes in addition to changing your diet. Sleep, play, work, it all plays into your overall well being!! Find out for yourself! New classes start every few weeks!
