Overview

Eating healthy can be a struggle. It’s hard to choose broccoli and brown rice instead of hot, cheesy pizza. And diets often ask you to cut out different foods all at once, leaving you feeling deprived.

In The 3-Day Reset, Pooja Mottl outlines 10 simple ways you can change your cravings and start eating whole, healthy, delicious foods—three days at a time. Each reset takes only 72 hours to complete, which means you’ll be able to stay focused on healthy eating from start to finish.

Resets include: sugar, wheat, salt, chocolate, yogurt, chicken, beverages, breakfast, salad, and takeout.

Packed with delicious recipes and nutritional information to support why you should eat whole foods like quinoa instead of processed, frozen, or packaged foods, The 3-Day Reset will set you on the path to healthy eating… and help you stay there for good.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Eating whole, minimally processed foods is one of best tools for preventing disease and living a full, vibrant life. In The 3-Day Reset, Pooja delivers an empowering blueprint for choosing these foods while demonstrating that healthy and delicious go hand in hand."
John Mackey, co-founder and co-CEO of Whole Foods Market

“With so many books on detox and resets, it’s hard to find one that is informative, practical, and enjoyable. Pooja's The 3-Day Reset is rooted in solid information—it's also easy to read, and fun. I love the recipes and the fact that in just three days, one can have a taste of how it feels to be in an optimally working body. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn how to get healthier.”
Alejandro Junger, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Clean

“This book is so in sync with the times! We all need 'clean fuel,' and with this book, Pooja supplies the easy answers.”
Michael Olajide Jr., author of Sleekify and celebrity fitness trainer

The 3-Day Reset will help you make a healthier connection to what you eat, and change your black-and-white food world into vibrant technicolor."
Rebecca Katz, MS, author of The Longevity Kitchen: Satisfying, Big-Flavor Recipes Featuring the Top 16 Age-Busting Power Foods

"Knowing how to cook quick meals using whole, minimally processed ingredients is an integral skill to living a fit lifestyle in our world today. With The 3-Day Reset, Pooja not only teaches you how to do this, but she also illuminates how we've lost touch with these kinds of foods. The 3-Day Reset gets to the heart of what it means to eat well."
Cheryl Forberg, RD, New York Times bestselling author, James Beard Award–winning chef, and the nutritionist for The Biggest Loser

“Natural foods chef and Huffington Post blogger Mottl addresses the challenge of making significant changes to your dietary regime by providing targeted chapters for reeducating your body regarding ten key foods and meals: sugar, salt, wheat, chocolate, yogurt, chicken, beverages, breakfast, salad, and takeout. Mottl uses the three-day reset technique as a concentrated time for the reader to become educated about the extent of ingredients such as sugar, salt, and wheat used and the many processed forms they may take in common foods. Recipes are included with each chapter to help the reader use the three days of reset to rediscover or be introduced to new, delicious natural foods that are high in nutrition. Shopping lists also ease the transformation of the 'reset' kitchen.”
Library Journal

"The 3-Day Reset puts us on the path to eating real food for life. Pooja's nourishing recipes are mouthwatering and her guidance on-target, easy to follow, and inspiring."
Sara Gottfried, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure

VERDICT While only one of a number of books that aims to inform the public about the unhealthy aspects of processed food (consider also Dana Meachen Rau's Going Organic or Robb Wolf's The Paleo Solution), this title may appeal to those who are looking for an introduction to clean eating.—Crystal Renfro, Georgia Inst. of Technology Lib. & Information Ctr., Atlanta
