      Tip 1

      Food

      Review the meal plan.
      Take the time to carefully review the meal plan. Break it down into one week at a time and take note of all the ingredients you will need for the week so you can plan and shop for what you need.
       Start on a weekend.
      We recommend that you start the 21-day Challenge on a weekend (like a Sunday) so you can review your meal plan for the upcoming week and shop for what you need on a weekend and not on a weekday when most people are busier and where you may not be able to find the time to grocery shop. We take a day off every week so you can use that day as a rest day, a diet cheat day (if you can live without a cheat day for 21 days, that is best) and a day to catch up if you missed videos.

      Learn to cook healthy.
      Watch the videos and take the time to learn to cook healthy if this is not something you’ve already learned to do. If you’re a beginner, you may make mistakes as you try each recipe but learning to cook is an essential skill for eating healthy on a budget. There’s a video for every recipe so you can learn how to cook the meal.
      It's okay to substitute for other recipes.
      If you find a recipe that you like and is easy to prepare, you may want to eat that recipe as a substitute for other recipes on the meal plan during the 21 days. As well, we will have written instruction on “eating in layers” so that is something you will want to learn during the 21 days. Eating layers is key to prepping meals in advance so you can eat healthy but with less effort.
      Give plant-based diet a try.
      Some of you may be thinking that this course will just promote a vegan diet but that’s only partially true. We believe that the best diet (based on science) for your health is a plant-based, whole foods diet but if you can’t give up meat, remember to stick to yellow light meats (you’ll soon know what that means). We encourage you to try going plant-based for the duration of the challenge, whenever possible. If you wish to continue eating meat, the course will teach you the best kinds of meat to eat and which kind to stay away from. The key for the challenge is to eat LOW FAT and HIGH FIBER.
      Skip supper for the first two days.
      For the first two days, we encourage you to skip supper (the last meal of the day) and eat fruit instead. For the duration of the challenge, try to eat lighter meals for supper. And if you eat out during the 21 days, choose plant-based options if for no other reason than to limit your fat and calories for the duration of the challenge. And for the duration of the challenge, try to eliminate all calories from drinks. Just drink water. Skip the sugary drinks. Make it a point not to get calories from drinks during the challenge.
      Tip 2

      Exercise

      Move after your meal.
      If you are already exercising regularly, keep it up. If you’re not doing it already, incorporate cardio type exercises. At a minimum, walk 2 miles per day. If you can’t do 2 miles, start small and work up to it during the challenge. The key time to walk is right after meals. Try to walk for 20 min after lunch and dinner. If you can only walk for 10 min, that’s fine too. Just keep moving every day. Try to get 7,000 to 10,000 steps per day. Get a step counter. Park farther from the entrance when shopping.
      Tip 3

      Before You Start...

      Work with your physician.
      No matter what, the goal should be to do this program safely. If you follow the program closely, you may find your A1C and blood sugar dropping, and this could affect your medication and overall health. Make sure your physician knows you are taking this course and test yourself more often especially if you are following the meal plan closely.
      Utilize the materials.
      Don't forget to download the workbook, journal, and cookbook. You can fill out the answers in the workbook by printing the pages out or do it on your device using our fillable pdf. This will help reinforce what you learn. Keep track of your progress with the 21-day journal. You can also explore over 92+ recipes found in the cookbook. 
      We wish you all the best during the challenge! Remember to stay focused, get plenty of sleep at night, stay on schedule with the videos, and make good food choices during the challenge. You can do this! Prepare to rewrite your health journey!

      6 months after starting the program, I was declared non-diabetic. I reversed it! It’s been one and a half years and I’m still not diabetic or prediabetic.
