Eat real food.
Eat food you love.
Our primary goal at 421 Reset is to empower you to make nutritious and healthy food choices. We believe you should eat for your energy output, to nourish your body
and fuel your fitness with higher nutrient lower calorie food. Sure, we want you to follow the 4-2-1 Fuel plan during this 30 day challenge, but ultimately we want you to follow this plan, or something like it, indefinitely.
Eat most meals with a 4-2-1 ratio: 4 parts veggies (some fruit), 2 parts protein, and 1 part carbs. Basically, fill your plate with mostly veggies and protein! No need to count calories. No need to weigh your portions. Just make sure that the bulk of what you're eating is nourishing, real food.
Foods to avoid
These foods generally cause inflammation in your body, are often stored as fat, spike insulin levels, and have low nutritional value. We don't suggest you eliminate these foods forever, but give it a try for our challenge. More info here!
WHy it works
We all know in order to look and feel our best, both exercise and diet are needed, but it's not a 50/50 split. Food is undoubtedly the more important part of the equation.
Food is medicine. Food affects hormones, neurotransmitters, insulin, and an array of other factors that influence health and fitness.
This simple formula highlights veggies (and some fruit) to fill you up, as well as healthy, lean proteins, healthy fats, and nutrient rich carbohydrates to nourish and fuel your life.
