5 Day Reboot With Dollie!

1:52 PMDollie DeVille

With holiday eating around the corner I decided to do a preemptive reboot. Everyone seemed really interested when I did it in the past, so I thought I would host a reboot here for anyone to follow if they wish. This should get the holiday off to a good start! If you miss this one, I will be doing an even longer one after the holidays in preparation for Viva Las Vegas! 

What is a Reboot?

A period of time where you commit to drinking and eating only fruits and vegetables, herbal teas and water in order to regain or sustain your vitality, lose weight and kick-start healthy habits that recharge your body and get your diet back in alignment for optimal wellness.
Is a Reboot for everyone?
Rebooting is for almost everyone with a few exceptions. Please don’t attempt a Reboot if you are pregnant or nursing, under 18 or have a severe medical condition. Check with your doctor if you are unsure. If you are currently on medication, ask your doctor before starting this or any diet program.

Now, start Rebooting!
1. Get a planI reboot following plans from Reboot with Joe. Plans range from 3 days to 15 days. I have done all of the plans, so this time I modified the plan to fit my current needs. I am doing a 5 day plan with fruits, veggies, and some beans, nuts and seeds. I'm juicing as well as eating raw and cooked foods. I took recipes from Reboot with Joe, The Kind Diet, and Eat To Live. You can also customize the plan to be right for you! I just recommend doing mostly veggies and fruits, and skipping the meat, dairy, grains, alcohol, coffee and refined sugars. 

Because I customized my plan, I wrote it all down on a 5 day chart. If you want to take out the guess work, get one from Reboot With Joe

2. Go shopping.Once I knew what I was making I added all of my ingredients into a shopping list. The list insures that I got exactly what I need for the 5 days and didn't buy things I don't need. I went to the farmers Market and got mostly organic local produce. In total I spent $50. You could probably do it cheaper if you tried. For some reason I lost my mind for a second and bought a bunch of apples at $3 a pound. Ouch! 

3. Get movingJust because you are on a Reboot doesn’t mean that you have to stop your regular exercise routine. Nor does it mean that you have to start one either. However, fitness is an important component of a healthy, happy, and vibrant life, and key to helping you maintain your weight. So fill up on those fruits and veggies, get off the couch, get your heart rate up (it only takes 20 minutes) and get moving! I recommend easy activities like walking, yoga, swimming or cycling. 

4. Share your successShare your success with me! I would love to see your meal photos and hear how it its going throughout the five days. Please hashtag #Rebootwithdollie on Instagram, or post updates on my Facebook page. You can also comment below with updates. 

Good luck rebooters!

  1. I have been doing this since September, following an eat clean diet (well 90% of the time) cutting down on carbs and dairy has really helped. i have a local green grocers so i buy fruit and veg that is seasonal and on offer so its really cheap for me.

    1. That's great! I started eating clean a few years ago, including juicing. I went vegan in June. Even as a vegan I can eat some junk foods that I don't need, like homemade baked goods and pastas/breads. So I like to reboot periodically, where I only eat fruits and veggies.

  2. Sounds good, and your encouragement is really working! I just have a question, what about eggs? It's a protein source, but yay or nay?

    1. I personally don't eat eggs. I find protein sources like beans, tofu and greens. Salmonella creeps me out!
