Created by Harley Pasternak MSc, the Body Reset Diet is a short-term diet program that works to boost a dieter’s metabolism, reboot their system and set them up for continued weight loss. It’s a 15-day plan that is separated into three five-day phases.

In the first phase, for their meals, dieters only have smoothies. The smoothies are color coded. White smoothies, containing milk or Greek yogurt, provide a good source of protein for breakfast. Red smoothies, which are comprised of fruits, are for lunch and provide an energy boost. Green smoothies are for dinner and are made up of vegetables to help keep you full at night. The smoothies contain a liquid (ex. milk or water), a protein (ex. Greek yogurt), and high-fiber fruits and vegetables (ex. apples, berries, bananas, sweet potatoes, greens, etc.). Aside from smoothies, dieters are permitted two crunch snacks per day, such as an apple, a quarter cup of edamame, etc. Each snack should be between 100 to 180 calories.

In phase 2, dieters drink two smoothies daily and replace one smoothie meal with solid food, such as a sandwich, salad or stir-fry. In the final phase, dieters will drop down to one smoothie meal and have two solid meals per day.

While Pasternak does not recommend going to the gym, he does encourage followers of the Body Reset Diet to walk 10,000 steps daily. This can be achieved by making a few simple lifestyle changes, such as going for a walk every day, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, etc. Light resistance training is also recommended three times per week for five minute sessions.

Food and exercise recommendations for this diet are laid out in Pasternak’s book: “The Body Reset Diet: Power Your Metabolism, Blast Fat, and Shed Pounds in Just 15 Days.”


It is likely that you will experience quick weight loss results if you were to follow the Body Reset Diet as recommended. This diet is low in calories and encourages exercise. Furthermore, this diet is high in fruits and vegetables, which is typically linked to better overall health. It shouldn’t cost you anything more than the one-time purchase of the book (which can easily be found online at a reasonable price), as well as the cost of your usual grocery bill to follow this diet.


While it is possible to lose weight on this diet, keeping the weight off is another story. Once the 15 days are complete, it’s up to you to continue managing your weight. Some people may find following this diet too difficult, as it is highly restrictive, particularly phase 1 when there are no solid meals. Drinking multiple smoothies per day could become boring, which may make it harder for some to stick to the plan. Others may simply not find their hunger satisfied with a low-cal mostly vegetarian-based diet.

Although Pasternak has his masters in exercise physiology and nutritional science and has worked as a personal trainer for many celebrities, he is not a doctor. Any advice given in his book should not supersede recommendations given to you by your own healthcare provider. It is important to speak with your doctor before trying this diet to make sure it is a safe and smart option for you.
