Do you feel like you need to make a change with the way you eat, but fear how long it will take to make it real and lasting?
We know that the key to healthy eating is creating a love affair with real, whole foods, which takes time and effort. There is a learning curve for selecting and preparing new foods, revamping the pantry, attuning the palate to a greater variety of flavors, and simply making the necessary habit shifts.
These things don’t happen overnight.
Patience is key. The healthiest weight loss and best way to health is through gradual, attainable changes over time that are sustainable for the long haul.
This has been my motto with clients for years.
For the first time ever, I am comfortable with a health solution that is a quick jumpstart. I call it a jumpstart because it ideally paired with developing a healthy relationship with food over time. But, now, you can get some fast results, in a healthy way, while you are taking your baby steps over time.
The Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD), called Prolon, was developed by doctors who study longevity. While fasting has been an approach used for health and spiritual purposes throughout time, true fasting (water only) has also come some risk and a lot of discomfort. FMD was created as a way to get the benefits of fasting without the suffering.
With FMD, researchers have determined that 5 days is the perfect fasting time for the body. Long enough to get the desired effect of regeneration and rejuvenation on a cellular level! FMD stimulates cell-based repair and regeneration by cleaning out damaged cells, stimulating cellular repair, and increasing stem cell generation!
It is the diet of regenerative medicine!
The foods (provided for you in Prolon) are all plant based and gluten-free. Most of the ingredients include olives, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds, dark chocolate and herbal teas. The Prolon box is simple and easy. You, literally, just add water.
The box is wonderful, but you do have another option.
I am now offering a DIY version of the fast. If you enjoy the process of cooking (or simply want a more economical version of the fast), this is the option for you! With it, you will receive 2-3 meal plan options for each day. All meals are created from simple, whole foods.
Restore You is a combination of the FMD with a 5 day mindfulness program. Fasting has long been a spiritual practice. This program offers you an opportunity to use your fasting period for more than just physical regeneration, having it also be a space to create mental and emotional expansion.
Our best health comes from a holistic place that includes our mind and body. This 5 day experience not only gives your body and mind a break from your habits and routines, but also helps to build a new healthy relationship with food and your body.
When you sign up for Restore You,
you are choosing to invest in your long term health.
The Restore You program offers you daily guidance from a master's degree level Integrative Nutritionist, along with support from a fellow group of fasters. Beginning with the kick-off of your specific Facebook group's 5 day experience, Katrina will provide motivation via daily mindset videos, tips and tricks, an understanding of what is happening in your body, as well as specific individualized guidance.
To deepen your experience even more, purchase the Restore You eBook. In this book, your fasting experience will be taken to new heights with the inclusion of a daily reading, journal prompts, mantra, and 10 minute audio meditation. Also included is a helpful page, loaded with recipes, to help you navigate Day 6, transition day.
Both the Restore You group and eBook provide a basic framework to utilize the fast as a way to begin to build new habits and thought patterns. To help solidify those and continue to make progress toward your health goals, as a group member, you will receive a complimentary 30 minute follow-up individual session to discuss your experience and the best next steps for you.

" The Restore You program puts the benefits of fasting within reach. This program takes into account not only the amazing physical healing that takes place with a multi-day fast, but considers the whole person working to simultaneously tap into your spiritual and emotional well-being. Katrina’s program provides daily support through online education about what is happening within your body along with relaxing meditation, daily mantras and thought-provoking journaling. Fasting can cause you to focus on physical deprivation, but Restore You fills that physical void with spiritual and emotional nourishment. I’ve completed the program twice with plans for a third round soon. I’m so grateful for the physical changes I’ve noticed, but also for the increased awareness and connection with myself and with food. " -- Megan

" Over the past several years I have tried many different fad trends, including various cleanses, detoxes and diets. Each time I would feel an initial shift in my gut health, but then would soon feel the return of the familiar discomforts of an irritable stomach. When Katrina suggested I try the Restore You program, I was at first skeptical. I wasn't sure I would be able to "fast" for five days. What I didn't realize was how supported the fasting process would be. I did feel hungry at times, but it was over before I knew it. What wasn't over was the amazing way my digestion and stomach felt! What I truly enjoyed about Restore You was the mindfulness component. I loved the journaling, meditations and daily mantras. All of the mindfulness practices helped me stay focused on gratitude and abundance instead of the feeling of going without the usual amount of food. Since completing Restore You I have felt better than ever before! It will definitely be a new part of my quarterly self care routine!! " -- Kari
How often can I do Restore You?
It is recommended to begin by moving through the 5 day protocol 1x/month for 3 months.
After the initial 3 month period, it is suggested to return to the program 2-4x/year.
Some people may choose to do the program 1x/month for a greater therapeutic effect.
