That actually doesn't seem so bad. For my husband, I can just add chicken, pork or beef and the portion that is my meal would be a side for him. Does it give you substitutes if you can't find an ingredient? Like delicata squash? I have never heard of it either. Perhaps I could find it if I was looking, but if I can't, would it provide a more common substitute?

Here are several of the meals in each Phase. The food is actually pretty "gourmet" like and good but I'm not really a picky eater. Although your 21 days is laid out, through the phases, you can pretty much substitute any meal for another as long as it is in the phase. I personally went with the meal plans the entire time just to follow the plan as closely as possible. Also, they have you drinking Distilled with added minerals (at least 1/2 your body weight a day and not much else beverage wise. . maybe some herbal tea):

Phase I
B Toast/Eggs & Spinach, Oatmeal, Yogurt & Fresh Fruit, Rice Cereal

L Microgreen Salad with Seeds, Greek Salad with Chicken Breast, Lentil Salad

D Baked Salmon & Asparagus, Black Beans & Rice with side of Kale, Nori Rolls with Tempeh & Veggies & Miso Soup, Stir Fried Veggies on Quinoa, Roasted Root Medley (carrots, beets, sweet potato), Zucchini-Cashew Soup

Phase II
B - Fresh Fruit Plate, Miso Soup & Mashed Chickpeas, Spinach & Avocados with Chickpeas

L Various Salads (microgreen, greek etc.)

Dinner Sweet Potato & Red Pepper Bisque, Pinot Beans & Rice, Quinoa Lentil Pilaf, Hearty Veggie Miso Soup, Roasted Beets & Collard Greens, Kabocha Squash with Garlic Tahini Filling & Steamed Veggies

Phase III
B Fresh Fruit Plates (3 c fruit)

L Carrot Seaweed Medley, Microgreen Salads with Seeds, Cabbage Salad & Miso Soup, Moroccan Carrot Salad, Spinach Salad, Jicama/Avocado Salad

D Lemon Pepper Kale & Edamame Corn Succotash, Baked Sweet Potato & Garlic Veggies, Roasted Delicata Squash & Beans, Asian Stir Fry, Curry Cauliflower & Kale, Roasted Fennel Bulb with Asparagus & Broccoli

Hope that kind of helps give you an idea of the foods. Some of them I hadn't heard of or had not had before (like the Delicata Squash - which I love and buy when I can get now)

In terms of the food, I have to buy food to eat anyway, so that is sort of just normal. Can anyone who have done it share some of the types of recipes or meals so I get an idea of what they are and whether or not it is worth it for me?

I really don't think it's worth the $$. You pay a crap ton of money for the kit and then have to shell out even more money for the food.

I am going to be honest here & say probably not. Over 1/2 of it revolves around the diet. You can pick 1 or 2 meals from each phase and eat that most of the week but I don't really think you will get the whole benefit.

What kind of cleanse are you looking for?

My husband and I are very picky eaters. I am not going to be able to prepare two meals 7 days a week. There is no way my husband will be ok with a vegan diet for 21 days. There is so much I don't/can't eat. I don't think there is anyway to be true to the diet portion, I am going to have to substitute and make changes...either that or starve.

Is it still worth it do you think if you have to change and tweak the diet? Anyone else out there picky eater who has tried the cleanse and had to make adjustments to the meal plans?

I have done the UR and have to say it is totally worth it or was for me! Especially if you have some habits you want to kick (like caffeine). It is $$ and buying the first week of ingredients can be $$ if you don't have the staples in your house already...some I did & some I didn't. Some I had not heard of (tempeh) or used before (miso paste, seaweed)...it is a Vegan Cleanse done in phases...the first phasing you out if Animal products ( so you get a few eggs & chicken once) by Phase 3 you are eating only fruits & veggies ( grains optional) I did not the geains in the 3rd week & lost 14 pounds in 3 weeks which is still gone. I have actually transitioned to a 90% vegan lifestyle which works well for me...I know this isn't realistic for everyone.

The only con I was not prepared for was all of the time & prep work in the kitchen...now it's my lifestyle so I don't give it a second thought...I plan my meals & shop for a week building off of what I made ( for example I had stir fry on brown rice but made 1 cup extra knowing I was making veggie burgers 2 days later & would need it) and in hind site is how I should have prepped for this reading ahead for the meals and planning for what was to come.

So honestly if you are prepared to take it in...and follow through & be true to yourself because there really is no room for cheating etc. then I say go for it. I grew both spiritually & mentally from the experience & wouldn't trade it...it's all about self care & taking care of you! If you do decide to do it....keep us posted we would love to hear about you experience!

Hi all, I love beach body. Turbo fire and I recently bought Charlene extreme as I needed something with shorter workouts. Anyway, as many of you probably did, I got an email right after the new year about doing the Ultimate Reset and I have to say I am really intrigued. I could really use a good cleanse/detox. After a long bout of flu (which I am just now getting over), I haven't smoked in over a week and am scared I will just start again (which I don't want to) and I think the reset could help with that. My concern is the cost!!! If I am going to spend $200 I want to make sure it is truly worth it. I don't really care about the weight loss ( though it would be nice), but what did it do? How did it make you feel? Basically, was it worth the $200 and will you lose all the benefits if you don't buy the maintenance kit (which I don't plan on doing).
Thanks!
