Overview

The Rest and Repair Diet is a simple step-by-step diet for both vegetarians and meat eaters. It is designed to improve the state of your gut health, with weight loss as a side-benefit.

You start the diet by detoxifying your body for 1 week, using herbal preparations and making a few easy changes in your lifestyle. After the detox, you then begin the 3-week Rest and Repair portion of the diet. This diet is not a fast. Ideally, it should be a feast that improves your microbiome and digestion. Realistically, you should at least feel satisfied after each meal. When you finish with the Rest and Repair phase, you begin your Self Discovery Lifestyle Program. This is an valuable part of your road to health, involving the reintroducing of specific foods that you eliminated in your 3-week diet. You will also keep a Food and Lifestyle Journal so that it will be crystal clear how changes in food and lifestyle affect your body and mind.

The Rest and Repair Diet is an important first step towards lifelong health, integrating modern medicine with the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda. By taking responsibility for your own health and using the Rest and Repair Diet and Lifestyle recommendations, you will have begun your journey to a more resilient, healthier, happier state of mind and body.
