Take the 28 Day Reset Challenge!
Are you ready to take on a challenge that will SERIOUSLY change your body once and for all while giving you more energy? If you’ve been working out super hard and you’ve had trouble SEEING your results, then we need to talk FOOD. It usually boils down to what you’re eating.
I know, I know. It’s probably what you DIDN’T want to hear! I was in denial too for a long time too – thinking I was eating clean, but apparently, it wasn’t what my body truly needed to thrive.
What you need to know is that The 28 Day Reset is NOT A DIET. It is a way for you to clean out your body and figure out what food intolerances and sensitivities you may have. If you have acne, if you get bloated easily, if you have trouble losing weight – then you need to do this with me. The challenge is only 28 days long and will help you clean out, lean out and increase energy! Many POPsters have lost anywhere from 5-15 lbs in just 1 month of doing this! GUYS IT WORKS. IT WORKED FOR ME!!
The #28DayReset Challenge is FREE for everyone to take on! You don’t even need to buy my nutrition guide to get started. All you need is to download the FREE PDF that I wrote up for you below. It explains everything:
To take on the #28DayReset Challenge, do this:
Omit the following 5 things from your diet for 28 days straight:
- Added Sugar
- Processed Food
Commit to working out 6x/week. Choose one plan:
- Do the PIIT28 workouts
- Do the January Blogilates Workout Calendar
- Do the Blogilates Beginner’s Workout Calendar
Download the PDF to understand why I am asking you to do this. You will seriously feel SO AMAZING on day 28. Your skin will clear up, your body will be leaner, and you will be so much stronger!
If you feel like you need more support plus access to hundreds of recipes, then it may be a good idea to get The 28 Day Reset nutrition guide. It is a comprehensive e-book that includes detailed meal plans, grocery lists, substitutions, and access to the online portal where you can directly communicate with Erin, the amazing Blogilates Executive Chef and Nutrition Coach. You can choose from getting the regular meal plan or the plant based vegan meal plan!
OK are y’all excited!!??? Comment below and tell me if you’re in!!!! LET’S DO THIS!!!!!!

What would be a good alternative to coconut milk and coconut flour? My daughter is allergic to coconut so don’t want to have anything with coconut in the house
I need to do exercises that does require leg use at all. Is that possible for weight-loss? I am getting knee replacement surgery in next few weeks.
I want to do this but my parents say I do not need to be on a diet. I really want to do this
no gluten? But Cassey… I’m German 😀 😀
Hi Cassie — I love your workouts! Are oat milk and soy products (tofu, soy sauce) allowed on this?

I have to do this! Going to reset and do the PIIT 28 day challenge!
Hey Casey! I’m so excited to try this 28 day reset!y only question is-what exactly are processed foods and what are some examples of what I should be avoiding? Thanks!
The link for the “January Blogilates Workout Calendar” is broken.
I am super stoked about starting the 28 day reset. I found this at the perfect time in my life for it to help me the most.
Thanks for letting me know!! It’s updated now!!!
I want to start the 28 day reset
Hi Cassie! Would oat milk be considered an okay dairy? Or is it too processed? Thank you in advance!
The link for the 28 day reset is broken….can you email it to me? Thank you!
Hey Jennifer! Can you let me know which link is broken? They’re all working for me! Here it is: https://www.piit28.com/store/j3NNvSFr
this such an nice app i love it
Hi cassey… I’ve been followimg your calender from past two months. But i think I’ve gained some weight. I’ve not followed any food diet till now. I’ve been eating normally as before the Workout. I feel I’m much more flexible now but i also think I’ve gained weight. So will you suggest some deit to me?
This is crazy
I love your videos and I am soo skinny now thank you so much
I will soon start this.
I want to start the 28 day reset but I’m alittle nervous. I’m going to be doing it with the bridal work out. Will that work?
Cassey, do you recommend any protein shake in order to build muscle? The healthiest one or the best one?
I have dark eye circles so i have to diet accordingly for good nutrition
Scared but excited.
Hey blogilates, i was seeing some good food plan for my mother who’s been prescribed steroids and has gained excessive weight. Therefore please help me with a simple workout plan and a good diet for her to loosen up… thank youuu.
I’m currently on the 28 Day reset challenge. Is it normal to feel fatigued and faint at first?
Hi Casey ! We are a family of four, from Jaipur India and following your workouts from last one week. Loving your enthusiasm and motivational workouts !!!! Pls suggest some diet charts for pure vegetarians , no eggs . THANKS !!!
I eat a lot of peanut butter to keep my sugar from falling throughout the day due to hypoglycemia. What can I exchange pb for?
I was with you until it said alcohol. How about I just omit alcohol with sugar in it? #quarantinewith3kids
Does the vegan meal plan have a lot of soy? I know some people are sensitive to soy, so I’m wondering if I should also eliminate it for 28 days so I can figure out if it’s an irritant for me, but I’m hesitant to purchase the vegan meal plan if it relies heavily on soy products for protein.
Can I eat gluten free bread and pasta?
I would love to do a reset during this quarantine! Do you have one that is more up to date?
Hello, I want to start the 28 day reset. Is it okey to do it even though we are in quarantine? I was also wandering if I could eat tortillas?
If you make them at home so they don’t have any added ingredients or preservatives, and you make them out of masa harina so they are gluten free, you should be fine.
Just one question! Is it ok to consume lactose-free dairy products? For instance, I love cottage cheese and to be fair it’s a few if not the only dairy product I eat.
I would think that that kind of cheese is processed because removing the lactose doesn’t come very naturally, so I don’t think you should eat it.
I’m on board with the 28 Day Reset Challenge, except for omitting the dairy. I’m familiar with most of the research that shows the toxins in dairy due to its ‘manufacturing’ processes. By ‘manufacturing’ I am referring to the practices involved in the treatment of the animals, including the processes of product extraction. Dairy itself though, has many nutritional benefits. My family and I consume only organic, responsibly processed dairy product. Please share with me any scientific evidence you have showing that this consumption will inhibit my weight loss. I’m a social science researcher by trade, so I am careful to keep my personal opinions open to change based on well-founded research and data sets.
This challenge is less about “toxins” and more about pinpointing any food intolerances you might have, which happen when your body has trouble digesting certain foods. They are quite common, often go undiagnosed, and can cause symptoms like gas, bloating, and fatigue. For example, lactose intolerance is a well-known type of food intolerance that is prevalent in the population and occurs when your body can’t digest the lactose in dairy products. However, food intolerances can be tricky to pinpoint, and an elimination diet (which is what this is) is the standard for diagnosis. I recently went on an elimination diet to diagnose food allergies, and I found out that while I am not allergic to soy, I have a mild soy intolerance that gives me indigestion. I also found out that my lactose intolerance was the source of a lot of my puffiness and fatigue. Any weight loss you experience from an elimination diet of this sort is usually due to reduced puffiness and bloating. There is no caloric deficit in this elimination diet, which differentiates from the classic weight loss diet.
This is awesome to start a new chapter! Thanks Casey! <3
Does no dairy mean no eggs?
no, I think you are confusing dairy with vegan. Vegan is no animals or animal byproducts (cheese, butter, eggs) vs dairy, anything with animal milk other than human
Looking forward to doing this before surgery.
Hi, so I am a little confused about what we can and can’t eat. The outline for the 28 day reset says no dairy or gluten but when look at some of the recipes it has english muffins, greek yogurt and cottage cheese. Is there something I am missing? Could someone please explain? Thank you 🙂
I haven’t looked at them personally, however it isn’t unusual for Cassey to develop recipes named after familiar food items/dishes but made of “mock” ingredients, like gluten free bread or healthy vegan alternatives for cheese or yogurt which isn’t real cheese/dairy. A lot of health conscious people who apply this eating lifestyle on a daily basis use vegan options for this very reason.
I got hit by car recently so I can work out but can I just do the diet without working out and twill loose weight?
I got hot by a car recently so I can’t workout. Can I just do the diet instead.
So here’s the thing, I got hit by a car recently, so I can’t really workout. So can I do it with no wokrout?
Can i do this challenge but use any of your work out calendar ? And i’m new with your calendar, do we have to do everything that you list in it ?
Can I eat canned tuna?
Hello, is it OK for breastfeeding? 🙂 I gained a lot of weight with feeding and I really struggle
It worked very well. It helped me like me even more
Thank you 🙂
Hi, Did u buy the meal plan? I am debating but wondering how complicated the recipes and such are. Thanks!
This is my new year start along with my beginners calendar. I’m on it. YAYY!!
I am going to try this and hopefully stick to it! I am thirteen years old and have bee struggling with my weight for years. I just feel as if 2019 is a year for change and I am really excited.
Good Luck! Fresh start 2019!!
i am in
I would like to try the 28 day reset!!
We started this challenge on October 1, 2018. So today our 25th day! I think we’re going to finish tomorrow because we have big plans for the weekend and I don’t think we’re going to be able to continue. To make it more challenging my husband wanted to go vegetarian during this challenge. We haven’t eaten any kind of meat, chicken or fish since the first day of this challenge. It was ok during the first 2 weeks; We’re from Turkey and our food is most likely Mediterranean food. It wasn’t very hard for us to find recipes i think. And sugar cravings stopped. We didn’t feel hungry so we began to consume less calories. But that lead to low energy levels during the day. During the 3rd week we got bored with the food and wanted to quit so badly to eat different things. We felt like we need to change the food group. I think if we didn’t go vegetarian we wouldn’t be feeling this way. But we kept going. I lost 4 pounds and my husband lost 7 pounds already and we didn’t even workout. We walk sometimes but that’s it. One downside is we’re still bloated and feeling stomach cramps and gassy most of the time. That might be because we consumed lots of beans, lentils, rice… I was expecting to feel less bloated since we have been omitted dairy and gluten from our diet but that wasn’t the case for us.
I really like hard copy books… I with that the perfect 10 cook book was offered as hard copy rather then ebook. I am old fashioned that way I guess
think, this may be hard for me. Im a vegetarian, so my go to has been greek yogurt and string cheese as snacks 🙁
I think I will be good at this 28 day reset.
I am so excited to try this especially after all the nonsense food I’ve been eating from traveling!
Started the 28 day diet yesterday and would like to have some recipes. Hubby is joining me on this 28 day trip
Lets do this
Thinkin of getting the 28 Day Reset Nutrition Guide….. Are the recipes and food lists simple? I am not a big cooker and typically do things that are quick and simple and don’t need tons of ingredients.
I’m super interested in doing the 28 day reset! Do you have any feedback of how it is and how the recipes are? I just don’t want to spend all this money and not have it be worth it lol
Can’t wait to start this! Fully committing for 28 days with a before and after photo but i will be hitting the gym too because i love my classes 😀
Can I do gluten free tortillas?
Hello I just found out that i have type 2 diabetes and its been over 3 years since I did any kind of exercise. I want to be around for my family I would i start something?
HI Casey! You are such a huge inspiration and are definitely my Idol and #powergirl! quick question is it ok to do biking for my 28 days??
Is this ok for a 14yr old?
probably i’m 14 and im gonna do it
Im starting tomorrow
Started another round on March 8!
Starting my 28 Day reset tomorrow.
Here I go!
I’m starting today. wish me luck guys! so nervous
I need to loose 20 pounds or 10
I’m late to the party but, I’m extremely excited to start this 28-day challenge. Thank you for taking time and effort out to create better lives for the people of the world. You are an inspiration and I appreciate all you have done for me and everyone.
Hi Cassey, got a quick question! In the 28-day-reset challenge, dairy is not allowed because it contains lactose; but what if the cheese or butter is lactose-free? Is it then allowed to be consumed? 🙂
Dairy is bad for you either way. Lactose-free dairy products just have just added lactase to break down the lactose. They still have all the other bad stuff!
Dude no it’s not generally bad. Some people can eat it well others can’t. There is no “bad stuff” in dairy…
No dairy is not bad.I am lactose intolerant because of that I cannot drink milk or anything that contains milk but cheese,yogurt or fermented milk are fine for me.Also lactase is an enzyme,and it occurs when you make these stuff,no one just adds lactase to sell their products to lactose intolerant people.Lactase does nothing harmful.Also if you are not lactose intolerant,you can drink milk there would be no problem.
Hi Cassey. I would like to ask you. Are soya products and lactose-free milk or polenta OK or NOT OK.
Thank you for your answer!
Hello! I’ve started the challenge about a week ago and I’m already feeling the results! I love the sample vegan recipes and fully intent to buy the book next week! I was wondering though, is honey aloud in the reset program? I know it’s not vegan but as it is I’m not either. I only eat fish as meat so I think the vegan book would better suit my needs. Thanks for all you do Cassey!
I am intrigued about starting this challenge, and I’m also considering in making this longer than 28 days (maybe even lifestyle change). However, I’m also a pescetarian and I would like to know what other types of seafood I can eat (including shellfish). I saw that tilapia, salmon, and halibut are permissible, but I’d like to know if shrimp, lobster, scallops, or crab is okay? Also, if there are any seafoods that aren’t good. Thanks! 🙂
Hi Cassey, my boyfriend and I are starting our 3rd 28 day reset. We love the resets! We did February, April, and now in September. The difference between the two of us is that I need to lose a little weight, while he does not. He is active with his job and I am sedentary in mine, sitting all day at a desk job (which I HATE). I meal prep for the both of us, but here’s the problem, I only lose about 4 lbs (if I’m lucky), and he loses like 10. He doesn’t need that. He needs to maintain where his weight is. We recognize this is not a diet, but how can we keep this from happening? I need to lose about 10 lbs, and he needs to stay where he is. Any suggestions for us? I try to feed him twice what I am eating, but he still loses the weight and gets too skinny/feels weak. Thanks!
Hello, I have a question. Can I drink coffee during the reset? And what about honey? thanks a lot!
Kafe je ok, med ne.
I cannot even believe the transformation. I have tried to lose weight many times in the past. Some things were somewhat successful, but it just seemed that I kept hitting a brick wall over the last year or so. I was pretty desperate by the time I made the choice to try this program what helped me lose 21 pounds in about 6 weeks
Watch the video on this website: http://leanbellybreakthrough1.club/lose-40pounds-fast
Is light Jello okay?
hello i’m jade i have a question can i eat brown bread in this diet
Probably not, it contains gluten.
Im so excited to start! I just found out about this like, yesterday, because I have now made my own Workout schedule. I am always eating food that isn’t the most healthy thing for my body. I have a teeny tiny body, and I am almost 12. I know I haven’t grown to my full body yet, but I do know I should take care of my body better. I am so excited and ready to start this tomorrow!
Hi Cassey!! I am so excited to try the PIIT28 😀 But is it right to do it if I’m just a beginner? 🙂
What drinks am I allowed?
Everything on the list is measured in ounces….does anyone have a cheap/easy way to measure the weight of your foods?
Here is a link to a food scale you can purchase on Amazon for $8.00 (If you have Prime it is free shipping). I love my food scale – it really helps me monitor how much I’m eating.
Hello my name is Jessica Thomas and I would like to join your 28 day reset challenge
You dont have to say you are joining. You just do the challenge.
This really makes me slightly concerned that there are school aged children on here and they have been asked to take out sugar, gluten and dairy.
Let’s take gluten from example the three digestive issues with gluten are…
1. Celiac Disease (fatigue, anemia, depression and anxiety, osteoporosis, joint pain, headaches, canker sores inside the mouth, infertility or frequent miscarriages, missed menstrual periods, tingling in the hands and feet) (with these symptoms you would go to the Doctor for medical advice and to get further testing for a diagnosis).
2. Wheat Allergy- (nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, irritation of your mouth and throat, hives and rash, nasal congestion, eye irritation, difficulty breathing) (with these symptoms depending on what they are, you would need to go to the Doctor to have more testing and get diagnosed/go to the emergency department if you have difficulty breathing)
3. Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity- (mental fatigue, also known as “brain fog”, gas, bloating, and abdominal pain, headache) (if you are experiencing these symptoms instead of trying to cut gluten out by yourself, go see your Doctor. The Doctor will want to establish a clear connection between your symptoms and your consumption of gluten to diagnose you with NCGS. They may ask you to keep a food and symptom journal to determine that gluten is the cause of your problems).
If you are having symptoms and you think it’s related to gluten or dairy or whatever, PLEASE seek medical advice!!!
It is not OK to tell teenagers to cut out things from their diet which they do not need to. This can lead to very serious eating disorders. Gluten, dairy and sugar are not some enemy we have to avoid!!
Skin conditions such as acne please see your Doctor before cutting food from your diet. A lot of teenagers have pimples and it’s normal it’s not related to food it’s related to hormonal changes.
P.s everyone gets bloated after they have eaten a meal, or at that time of the month, or at the end of the day after a days worth of food. It is normal for your stomach to look bigger after eating a meal.
“You should not rely on the information in this nutrition guide as an alternative to professional medical advice from your doctor or healthcare provider.”
Please remember that people, if you are worried about your weight/medical symptoms, go talk to your Doctor/registered dietitian first.
And now reading some of these comments I’m crying. Some of these poor women are so scared, so restricted. Honestly it terrifies me….
Can I eat a potato? Can I go out to eat sushi? Can I eat dried fruit? Can I have a little sauce? Can I go out to dinner with my mother or will it ruin the challenge?
These foods are normal and healthy and yes you can go out to eat with your mum.
Please don’t restrict yourselves like this. Everything in moderation and if you have health concerns go see your Doctor, if you want to loose weight don’t start cutting everything away, believe me when I say that you don’t need to. Go see a dietitian if you need to loose weight they can support you on a healthy eating plan. Please please go and enjoy bread, and milk and yogurt and pizza and cake and go out to dinner with your friends and enjoy life because you deserve to be happy.
Lol Kelly FIRST OF ALL nobody “has been asked” to do anything! this is a referencial, optional meal plan!!!
Everything you are saying Cassey already said it in this same website:
“CAUTION: Before embarking on any diet or weight loss program you should consult your physician or health care professional, especially if you have recently been ill or have special dietary or medical requirements, or if you are pregnant or breast feeding, are a child, or are elderly.
You should not rely on the information in this nutrition guide as an alternative to professional medical advice from your doctor or healthcare provider.”
This is a “28 day RESET challenge” people in the commments ask if they can eat certain things that by any means Cassey said they were bad, it is just part of the RESET period that you want to avoid them so after you are done you start eating them again and notice if some of them make you feel bad, tired, bloated, etc.
i’m not paying that much for this.. I saw some of the foods an I wouldn’t eat it.. so paying that much isn’t worth it.. but love the workouts
Does anyone know if you can have soy milk during the challenge??
I’d just like to say I’ve been following the 28-day reset and I feel so refreshed and full of energy that my mind is blown that I had been so dragged down and heavy-footed and never realized it until I started treating my body better with better foods and exercise. My advice is to not only let this be for 28 days! Let this guide you to a fuller, healthier lifestyle.
Hi Cassey , I was wondering if you could have potatoes . Than you 😊
Hello guys,and Hello Cassey❤️
I’m here late,i’ll start 28 day reset next month,and i’m wondering about what kind of food that i can eat??
I saw that book you put it up,and there’s a lot of food that i can’t eat it💔
So can you Cassey and you guys help me please??
Thanks a lot..
I want to start the 28 day reset challenge but i was wondering what is the best protein powder to use?
Are you allowed to have red meat??
My daughter is doing the reset an accidentally ate a dum dum lollipop, she is thinking everything is ruined. Is this as bad as she thinks it is? Is everything ruined?
Is it okay to eat at beyond sushi during this 28 days reset challenge?
Hey I have a question.
I’m going out for dinner with my mom, but it’s around halfway through the 28 day challenge…. It’s SO poorly timed….. But would that cause any harm for the challenge?
Im actually kinda pumped for this!
I wonder some products like Almond breeze and Oatly are approved or not…
I was wondering, is that ok to have something like soy milk?
I am as your fan about 4 years and I received password’s workout calendar every month. However, there is a problem because I do not received any email from you for 3 month:(( Therefore, I tried sign up as new member 2 times, but it did not work. pleaeeeeeseeeee help meeeeee!!!!!
Can you eat dates?
A quick question, can you eat dates?
Will you ever put an actual book in book stores of the 28-Day Reset Challenge? I like actual books.
I started to do the 28 day reset today, but I am from a hispanic culture where most of what I eat is rice and bread. I do see on your list that brown rice is ok to have which is great for me. But I am worried about my breakfast options. I have a problem with acid reflux, and feel I need to have either a toast or cereal in the morning. Would it be ok to have gluten free cereal, like for example cheerios gluten free??. I know I can have eggs and outmeal, but I just feel like cereal feels good for my stomach. Could please guide me?? Thanks!
I aaam soo freaking excited about it! I took photos of myself and did first day’s exercise. It will be hard to not to eat dairy foods… I don’t even know what to eat now but i will prepare it with Cassey’s recommendations ♥
Can you have dairy free products? Like Lactose milk and cheese?
What do you substitute for Greek yogurt if you’re going dairy free? The only non-dairy ones I’ve found are so high in sugar! Should I just keep Greek yogurt since it’s healthy?
Would this be good for teens age 13-16
I have a question, can I try this if I am trying to gain weight? I have acne and acne products are not working😢
Hey. I’m kind of being a grump rn but I have some legit concerns about accessibility.
I like the idea of these but we don’t all live in LA and have access to all these fancy (and expensive) new age ingredients. I’d like to see y’all do a cheap clean eats only shopping at Kroger and you don’t have a car so you can only buy what you can carry on the bus home because that’s my life.
I also have a mental illness that makes it hard for me to have the energy to meal prep every day (and my days off I have to use doing chores that I don’t have time for during the week, so that uses up time and energy too).
I’m sure I’m not the only one with these problems so I’d love some community advice but also some consideration from the Official Blogilates people (:
Google good cheap healthy eating or recipes. Check out reddit it has a forum for this. Leanne Brown cookbook good and cheap eating well on 4 dollars a day. Has free pdf on her website too. I commented above a little more detail. Under DD name.
i was wondering If we have already bought PIIT1.0… I wanted to buy the pack that has 2.0 and 3.0 but would it be like buying 1.0 again, since it comes with all 3? or is there a way to just get 2.0 + 3.0? lol hopefully I made sense, thank you=)
Can you have BBQ sauce on the 28 day reset? What about mayo? I wouldn’t know what else to put with canned tuna.
Can you have BBQ sauce on the 28 day rest? What about mayo? I wouldn’t know what else to put with canned tuna.
I think both contain ingredients you should avoid.
Cassey, I ADORE Blogilates and it’s by far the most superior option for positive fitness programs! I only use Blogilates for my workouts and your peppy, sparkling personality encourage me every step of the way. Thank you for that!
I know you also do clean eating guidance and healthy food recommendations for your fans, so I wanted to suggest you check out or view them on FB. They’re a company of meal prep that ships perfectly proportioned and measured out meals for everyone wanting to eat clean but not loving the work that all requires. The creators both had bariatric surgery and cater toward that lifestyle’s requirements, but it’s great for everyone. I’m sure your fans would love it! As far as I’ve seen it is revolutionary since it is the first service of its kind. Please check it out!
And, as always, keep up the AMAZING work! Love you oodles and bunches!
im in for the vegan meal plan!
Sounds hard, but the results are sure to be worth it!
I wish the nutrition plan and workout plan wasn’t so expensive 🙁
Not everybody can afford that 🙁
I probably can’t do this while breastfeeding, can I?
Hey cassey I just started my 28 diet and today at 9 am I had a fruit salad then at 11 I had chicken salad but I feel bad because it had chicken breast , mayo, and celery, and ritz crackers I’m just concern will this effect me please answer back .Also what are some good healthy dinner ideas that are 28 diet friendly
I am just about to begin the 28 day reset but was wondering if my husband, who has Type 1 diabetes, would be able to follow the reset with me?
Would I be allowed to drink my 100% grape juice, because I used it for my germaphobia
so I really want to try this, in the lists of okay foods like okay proteins, okay vegtables, okay fruits ect, there is no okay carbs list???? are any carbs okay as long as it’s gluten free? in the build a meal section under carbs there is rice quinoa banana apple broccoli listed but is there anything else allowed? like sweet potato or gluten free bread?
Hi, Curious if you have done an office related workout series yet? Maybe done in office attire so you can also have the limitations…
Hi cassey im not sure if your going to see this or reply,but i wanted to know if i starded the biginner plan workout will i see any results?plz reply if you can
Hi! I was just wondering if you can eat popcorn? I absolutely LOVE popcorn and don’t know if I could live without it lol! Also, is honey okay? Thanks!
Hi! Did anyone buy the 28 Day reset program? If you did, could you tell me if the meal guide tells you how many calories each meal is? Thanks!
DO NOT BUY THE 28 DAY RESET IF YOU ARE ON A BUDGET. I saved up to buy this and haven’t been able to start and finish it to completion because I cannot afford all the ingredients each meal demands. I don’t know what kind of paycheck you need to make or how stocked your kitchen is beforehand to be able to get through one full week following the meal plans. Utterly depressing.
Great tip…I am actually trying to figure out how to fit the meals into an affordable grocery list right now…I read the ground turkey meal prep article she wrote and it’s hard to stay within the budget I have. Good food is totally worth the money, if you have the money. I’d like to see her come up with a budget friendly meal prep.
I’m the same way, I just now kinda am really motivated (more than I was 4 months ago) and since I’m in high school its hard, and so we’re on such a low budget and I’m not sure where you live but here if you want a small watermelon it’s $7 and well that 7$ goes towards animal food (I have a lot of pets because we rescued them) and if you want a very small container of blueberries its like $6 per pound and same with raspberries and Strawberries are like $8 per pound and stuff and its just so depressing. I’d like to complete this with following everything not just doing a little bit of it, but because meat (1 pound of super nasty/cheap hamburger meat is now 5$) so like chicken is out of pocket. Its super depressing and hard because I’d love to just have salad and fruit and vegetables for dinner but because of all the things you want to get it costs so much, and for 4 people that one thing can add up to just as much as going out to eat. Its really depressing and I’m getting to a state of mind right now that I don’t even want to try because I can’t afford or get the foods we need. I’d love to make smoothies for breakfast but then you add the whatever you’re suppose to add and it costs so much more than getting a box of cereal. I’m not sure how to even start my ‘diet’ with the proper foods because we can’t afford any of it. And even though I’m doing portion sizes and stuff, it’s still making me feel crappy. My mom said though that we’re going to try adding a salad and fruit and vegetables for dinner at least once a week to start off and then add more healthier choices.
Google good cheap healthy eating or recipes. You’ll find resources for eating healthy on a budget. There’s even a cookbook called good and cheap eating well on 4 dollars a day. By Leanne Brown. She has free pdf version on her website or u can buy it in print or check it out at the library. Library no have it use their ill service. Ill is interlibrary loan.

I am currently on day 10 on my reset and I am standing strong. I am loving it so much and I already see and feel a difference in/on my body. I’ve discovered so many amazing recipes that I hope to continue making even after the 28day reset. I do have a question though. For sweetening I understand that you can use a tiny bit of stevia. But what about raw honey? Would that be acceptable to use as a sweetner?
I am starting in a few days with a friend but I need more recipes that are reset approved. Any ideas? Thank you so much!
Hello i am on your 28 days reset and has been 10 days so far. I feel my skin is better and my body is less heavier. However feel like gain weight. Is it supposed to be by time of being 10days?
Hi Cassey! please i would like to know if oats is allowed for the 28day reset cos i love baking so i was wondering if it’s ok to bake with oats flour and corn flour.Thanks..
Hey Cassey! I just stumbled across this now and I’m excited to do this for March! I’m thinking about using the January workout plan, but I’m not sure if I should modify it since I’m on the track team and already do workouts daily.
what if i accidentally drink latte (coffee with milk) during the 28 day reset?
HI I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF ITS OK TO HAVE BLACK COFFEE [NO SUGAR], GREEN / BLACKTEA AND AS SUCH ??
I AM TRYING TO UNDERSTAND ALL OF THIS BEFORE STARTING.
Yes, she mentions in the plan that tea and coffee is okay as long as you don’t add sugar and dairy (like milk/cream from a cow) you can probably use almond milk or another kind of milk that’s not from an animal. This meal plan isn’t as restrictive as people think, so I would say go for it! 🙂
Hey! I just finished the 4 week beginner workout plan and am absolutely loving how far I’ve come from the beginning! I haven’t really lost any weight, but I am definitely more toned and feel slimmer. I would really love to do the reset, but I am nursing my 7 month old son… do you think it would still be okay to do it?
I am committing starting today, I have been doing your workouts along with more day and night and I hope improving what I eat will make the weight loss process even quicker, because right now its sloowwwww. Thanks Cassey 🙂 What is your opinion on artifical sweetners like Splenda?
are you ever going to restock the 2017 fit planner
Heyyy does anyone know if I can eat honey, may be a dumb question but hey ?
I was going to try your beginner calendar, along with the Beachbody on Demand programs I do, but I saw this 28 day reset and figure why not jump in and do the reset along with the beginner program. BOD will be there in a month. I need variety and to spice things up! My current BOD program ends on Sunday, so I will be starting the 28 day reset and beginner calendar on Monday the 27th. Wish me luck!
I am a bigger girl. I started at 391.6 in Aug 2016. I am down to 355.8 now. Every program I’ve looked at tells me different stuff, calories wise. You said eat 250-400 calories per meal 5x a day. That enough for someone my size? I don’t feel “hungry” often and when I eat what most body calculators say that I should, I always feel too full and have belly pain. Also can you intermediate fast? I like having a smaller eating window. It helps stop me from snacking during fasted hours…etc.
Hey Cassey! Can’t wait to start this 28 day reset, I was wondering, on the veggies and fruits and protein you put etc.. at the end. I’d like to know what more there would be to the veggie section!
You are an amazing person!!!
I have one more question! I saw really good results ir people who tried PIIT which u need to buy, Im wondering maybe someday this can be free? Cause there is I think a lot of people who need this and for example me – I cant buy this, I going to school and because first ir all my parents, second-we are not that rich… Im completely understand that u need these money cause u worked for this so hard, but maybe someday…
She gives a free PDF of food info for the 28 day reset. For now, I think it would be a good idea to find another way to exercise until you can afford PIIT. Join a sports team, start jogging, swimming, bodyweight workouts online, her Blogilates youtube videos, etc. It is possible to find free workouts if you look for them.
On Blogilates, she has different PIIT workouts (total body, arms, abs, legs, butt) that you can do & you just repeat the video 4 times for the 28 minutes (or do each one once, which is what I usually do!)
Hey Cassey and popsters! Its my second day of this challenge. Im doing right now , actually I started yesterdayFebruary calendar, I guess its never too late, yeah?:D Im wondering is bad baguette? The french toast? I ate that not much but still, Im trying to eat healthy as much as I can and Im wondering if few bites of product that I cant eat wont destroy my plan?
Baguette is gluten so it’s best to keep it out of your diet for now.
M pure vegetarian. Can you suggest some thing veggie in protein diet.
Hello Cassey! Thank you so much for sharing the PDF for the 28-day Reset. I’m thinking of taking up the challenge. Just need to ask: I’ve been mostly using grape seed oil when I cook these days. Is that compliant with the 28-day Reset challenge?
What kind of salad dressings are okay to have while doing the 28 day reset?
hi, i am just wondering if i can eat vegan cheese?
Hey Cassey, I have a question about calories in the reset. I need to consume about 2000 to 2500 calories per day to maintain my weight, 147, which is roughly 10 to 15 pounds underweight. I have never suffered with an ED, I just have a naturally high metabolism. So how would I adjust the reset to fit my bodies needs?
Can I use red meat, and corn flour?
Hey Cassey, what about honey?
Does it count as processed food?
Can I use honey? Does that count in added sugars as well?
Hey Cassey 🙂
So now that I’m finally done with all my exams I’d really like to do the 28DayResetChallenge 🙂
I kinda don’t know what to have for breakfast though. First I thought glutenfree oats, but they are crazy expensive in Germany!! I don’t have a lot of time since I’ll have to get up for work at 4:30am already (have to go there by bike, it’s 10k one way) so it’ll have to be something quick or something I can do the night before and something that’ll give me enough energy for the ride.. Do you have any recommendations?
I’d really appreciate it 🙂
Love from Germany <3
Hello! I just began the 28reset, I was wondering if Glutten free flour worked if we did not have almond flour and such?
Is any dried fruit okay? Chips, no chips at all? What if it’s banana chips?
Hi Cassey ! I will do the 28reset challenge through february !
I wonder whether honey and soymilk are allowed?
what about vegan dairy if i cant have cheese ill need to subsitite it
I am going to start this 28 day reset tomorrow for feb and I don’t really know about healthy food so I need help!! … I usually eat oatmeal from a packet with vanilla almond milk with fruit sometimes for breakfast and for lunch i have silk dairy free vanilla yogurt with fruit… If i have to avoid processed foods, is there any alternatives you would recommend for me???
Is it ok to have honey on the reset? And I have gluten free noodles that are made of brown rice flour and flax seed, with nothing else. Are those ok?
Hi! Just wondering – if you cut out all dairy, where do you get your probiotics from?
Is Truvia an approved form of stevia? Trying to figure things out
Just curious what everyone did for hummus? Did you make your own? Is the sabra hummus ok for this do you think? I know there is more than 3 ingredients so that’s why I’m asking! Thank you!!!
I`m on the first day now (yeah, I do it now) and I`m so excided! Although it`s a little bit hard. I really love these challenges! Is soy-milk ok with the challenge?
Is ketchup allowed on the reset?
hey Cassey i know it is late but i started doing the whole 30 witch is all most the same thing but more and longer and i started on jan 9th so if i could still get aboard that would be amazing
Hi!! ? Are seitan and tofu okay for the challenge?
I’ve been doing the reset challenge for two weeks now, and, even though I do feel less bloated I am not so sure I see a big change in my tummy fat as I thought I would. I am, meanwhile, going to the doctor for a possible problem with gallstones but otherwise what do you recommend for losing fat? I also have much fat around my arms and legs as well, but mostly arms and upper body, any little thing helps. I’ve been eating many salads like I should! and eating fish 🙂 but I still have my occasional snack like a small bit of chocolate or so every few days. What other veggies do you recommend for salads I’d love to see more recipes, I’ve seen very few so far and anything for breakfast would help a lot really <3 thanks!
p.s. I am also starting the PIIT 28 on march so I'd love to hear more recipe ideas with white meats and red meats involved as well 🙂 maybe for protein and building muscle as well 🙂
Our PIIT RESET book has SO many recipes that discuss all the things you’re hoping to see: breakfasts of eggs, frittatas, crepes and pancakes, salad lunches, and tons of chicken dishes.
Cassey just posted a roasted veggie bowl on her blog, so check that out to learn how to roast veggies and add them to cold salads all week long.
To lose fat- you need to exercise, build lean muscle and eat less than you’re burning, in other words, be in a calorie deficit. The surest way to do that if you’re not fully doing the reset with the book is to log your food in an app like My Fitness Pal so you track everything you’re eating. Now— if you’re eating too little- that’s also a problem. Your body will slow its metabolism because it assumes it won’t be fed enough. This happens a lot to women dipping under 1,100 calories per day.
I have been dedicated to the 28 day reset. It has been a wonderful opportunity for me to learn to eat differently and bring out all those healthy recipes that I keep my drawers. Oats, almond milk and fruit for breakfast have replaced bread and butter, and I no longer need a snack at 10:00. I have lost 6.5 pounds so far, mostly around the waist and thighs. My skin looks fresh and healthy (and that’s important when you are 48), I no longer feel bloated and I do not suffer from any seasonal sicknesses. I usually have a bad cold at this time of the year. I can only see improvements! However, I am still craving for pasta, bread and cake and feel that it will be necessary to establish a set of new rules as of next week in order to maintain the benefits of the reset and appreciate the pleasure of digging into brownies and croissants. Would you have some advice?
This is AH-MAZING!!
I’m sorry to hear those cravings haven’t diminished. They generally do. Though sometimes they’re emotional cravings and not physiological cravings. And that’s ok. We sometimes crave comfort.
For pasta- please google black bean noodles. They’re delicious. Gluten free. Satisfy like pasta and have loads of protein. For bread- check out Mikey’s Muffins (and pizza crust) or Californiacountrygal.com for amazing grain-free bread mixes.
i’ve been doing the 28 day reset (free version) and piit. i’ve been tracking my calories (both exercise and food) and losing weight, but after the first week i’ve been getting really dizzy often. it’s really hard for me to focus when i’m reading or looking at things and i’ve been feeling really lightheaded just when i’m walking around or even driving. can somebody help me understand what’s going on? it’s really freaking me out
When doing this challenge do you have to do workout ???
Ps: love you so much your the one that got me motivated ?
Yes. You should exercise at least 4-5 days per week. The Piit workouts are only 30 minutes 🙂
Having issues downloading this pdf, I download it but it goes to amazon Kindle and sause not around to open. 🙁
Oh no!! I haven’t heard anyone say that before.
I thought as much..not sure what to do then..
So a few days back I got extremely ill, and the night I was up with high fever, I hadn’t eaten anything, and there was nothing I could prepare by myself in the middle of the night and desperate times called for desperate measures so I consumed something out of gluten, after that day, I made sure I continued this perfectly without giving in but I don’t know if that one day is going to affect the entire result. :c
Good morning Cassey! I am already half way through the 28 day reset and feel amazing! Wondering if the following things are ok with the 28 day reset!
Hi Cassie! Are rice cakes ok for this reset? Thanks!
What are the ingredients? Hopefully just brown rice and salt? I have some small ones for my kids that are just organic brown rice and sesame seeds. 25 calories. 5 carbs. 1 protein. Zero fat/fiber/sugar. They are processed, but on the scale of good, bad or ugly, they’re not horrible. We allow them in a couple reset recipes for variety, but whole, real food with fiber will always fill you up more. A 45 calorie rice cake has no water and little fiber, vs a fruit or veggie that has a lot, keeping you fuller.
That said, if you need a fast grab and go snack- we did say that things with 1-2 ingredients were usually okay.
Thanks for replying Erin! I may have translated them wrong into english, just read the packaging and it says Rice Crispbread. No idea if they are the same thing, but this is what I meant to ask about. Ingredients wise, it says semi-milled rice and salt. I was contemplating about having them with some sort of spread that i could make, like guaamole or hummus 🙂
Cassey a question, in your book 28 reset you mention often greek yogurt.Can I eat that? Because it’s made from milk. Just wondering. Thanks!
It’s in the book but it’s an “after-reset” meal. All the reset meals are listed in the beginning. There’s no dairy in those.
Oh my… Could I still join? Is there like an active community somewhere? So we could support each other apart from the comments here and I really will have a hard time sticking to the schedule ‘^_^
Of course you can still join! Even if it’s a bit late, as long as you commit and go all the way for all 28 days, you’ll feel amazing! Wishing best of luck to you, fellow POPster!
Please do! People who buy the reset meal plan have their own active forum. Or- keep up with us here 🙂
I started on monday 9th, better late than never. I wonder if I can have peanut butter (in small amounts).
It’s ok. Not terrible. Not great. If you eat it, it should really be organic.
I am really excited about this and I want to try the PIIT28 reset and challenge. But I’m breastfeeding at the moment… I assume tha it is best to do the reset meal plan only after I’m done breastfeeding or when my baby starts eating cereals/foods? I don’t want to do anything that will affect my milk supply…
So, I’m breastfeeding as well. I have plans to start thid in feb. My goal is to have 400-500 extra calories per day. That way my body doesn’t think it’s starving and hopefully won’t mess up my supply?? If I feel like it’s started to be affected I’m going to abandon ship, but I think as long as your body doesn’t think it’s starving your supply won’t get messed??
Is corn allowed? What about Charras Baked Corn Tostadas? The only ingredients are corn flour and salt and they’re gluten free.
Can I eat this chip? The ingredients are: Organic stone ground blue chips, organic sunflower oil, organic sprouted amaranth, organic sprouted quinoa, organic sprouted chia, sea salt, water, trace of lime.
The ingredients aren’t “bad” but the reset is to get you searching for whole, unprocessed foods in place of processed snack foods. You probably get 10-12 chips for 120 calories or so? Those won’t keep you full like and Apple and almonds would for the same calories. Or broccoli and hummus for the same calories. It’s up to you, and technically, chips are pretty processed.
Hi Cassey! I’ve been doing PIIT and the 28 day reset for the last two or three days and it’s been really great! However I like tracking calories alongside the meal plan and I’ve found it’s really hard to eat enough everyday, especially as a college student who’s in class 8am to 9pm! I usually can’t get past 600 for the day. Are there any good examples of higher calorie snacks I can easily take to school so I can be fully fed every day?
Oh gosh! 600 calories a day?! Really? Be careful, as so few can wreak havoc on your metabolism. Fat is a great way to quickly get calories without spiking your blood sugar.
Hardboiled egg (72 cal)
RX bar (210 cal)
Overnight oats with a drizzle of nut butter (400 cal)
Mini bag of almonds (200 cal)
Turkey deli meat (organic) (60 cal for a couple ounces)
Add coconut butter or oil to your coffee or shake (100 cal per TBS)
Apple with nut butter (220 cal)
If you ate all of the above doing you’d be fine. Maybe two eggs. It’s all on the go food too.
Ideally you’ll eat raw crunchy veggies too. Maybe carrots and bell peppers.
I’ve noticed that in one of your recipe videos that you used ghee, is that ok with this reset
Ghee is clarified butter, so the milk proteins are removed. So it is ok. You could use coconut oil or avocado oil if you like:)
Starting the 28 day reset on Monday (better late than never?). Does raw honey need to be given up as well?
Yes, it should. Just got the 28 days. See if you can reset your taste buds with less sweetness.
Hey Cassey! I am new to blogilates and am on day 11 of January’s calendar. However, just saw this 28 day reset and planning to pairing this with the workout plan. The 28 reset is exactly what I have been looking to do but didn’t know how and didn’t want to do it alone! I have a lot of bloating after eating certain foods, but can never figure out which foods and what would help. I just have a quick question though, after I commit to this for 28 days and am feeling great, what happens to our bodies when we do have dairy and gluten again either in our diets or indulging for a day. Will the bloating be worse because the body hasn’t had it in 28 days? Just a curious thought, but definitely still pumped to really commit to this and feel so much better! Thank you so much <3
We tell you how to slowly add foods back in to discover the sensitivities. I wouldn’t say reactions are “worse”- because you’ll ease into it and stop the second you discover anything. If there’s no reaction with one food (say, dairy) then you’ll move to gluten. If you do have a reaction to the small amount- you basically learn that it’s probably not a good you should be eating. So it’s not like on day 29 you dive into ice cream and bread. There’s a system to it so you don’t fall over in pain 🙂
Hi! Just wondering how cooking intensive the meal plan is. I don’t want to invest in the plan if I don’t have time to cook! Thanks!
It’s not bad. We tried keeping the meals super simple. Many can be made 2-3 at a time or doubled so you can skip a day. Breakfasts are really fast and some can be made the night before. Snacks are mostly fruits, veggies, hummus, nuts and lean meats.
I’m on day 2 of the challenge. I think I’m doing so far so good but I’m wondering about some things. Can I eat Larabars? I know that technically they are “processed” but the ingredients are pretty wholesome so what are the thoughts on that? And what about sushi? Not from the store but from an actual restaurant? I don’t think they would put sugar in that like in the packaged ones…
I was wondering the same thing about larabars! cause most of them only have 3 ingredients
Larabars are fine as long as you don’t rely on them more than once a day.
There is usually sugar and vinegar in the sushi rice.
Yes. You can. Just don’t rely on them. Whole food is always better. But in a pinch- totally fine!
I’m starting this tomorrow I’m so excited to work out again after having the flu 🙂
can I use coconut oil and coconut butter?
Are bars such as quest bars and larabars ok?
Hi!! I was looking at the 3 ingredient cookie and muffin recipes you have made and put on youtube, and I was wondering if raisins are allowed. A lot of the recipes have raisins or craisins in them so I was wondering if these are allowed in the reset.
A question…can you eat soy/almond/ or rice yogurt? That’s because i love yogurt especially greek yogurt, so i was searching for other types.
I’m beginning the 16th when i start my new job. And i really want to stay motivated!
We’d need to see the ingredients. Is there added sugar? These yogurts usually contain hard to pronounce ingredients, and many have carrageenan (that’s something I always avoid). But they are processed so, it’s technically not a whole food. But- if there’s no sugar or ingredients you can’t pronounce, maybe it’s ok. I don’t eat those (and I never eat soy) so I can’t totally speak to the product.
Ok thank you! I’ll check! And can you please tell me if you can eat polenta? Polenta is a dish of boiled cornmeal. it’s not processed i do it always by myself. thank you!
I wanted to know if it was okay to consume white rice or potatoes, this wasn’t mentioned in the “ok” list but it was also not in the “no” list
Because rice is a gluten-free grain (like quinoa) and potatoes are a starchy vegetable, I would imagine that they are okay to eat. However, you’ll want to make sure you eat them in moderation, and cook them in healthy ways. And I guess it would depend on if you’re comfortable with the possibility of fudging the rules a little bit? Like I said, I imagine they would be alright but I’m trying not to be too stringent/obsessive about my eating.
Thank you, this really helped. Exactly being stringent would only make it harder, so I went with the same mentality.
Hi Cassey! I have been following your blog for over a year now and I absolutely love your energy and videos. I am about to embark on a gradual lifestyle change in 2017. My goal is for me to achieve a healthy and toned figure by the time I graduate (2020). I was wondering if you have any tips for this challenge since I’ll be under a meal plan at school and can’t cook during the semester.
Are white potatoes allowed on the 28day reset? Baked not fried. 🙂 This is a first for me, but I’m committed to doing it right. Fingers crossed my self control has gotten better with age!
They’re not the most nutritious veggie and they’re quite carb-heavy. But, they’re a whole good- so it’s not forbidden. I’d limit it to 1 small one.
Today is day four for me, and although I’ve been sluggish for the last few days and haven’t hit the gym, I’ve already lost 2 lbs and I feel great! I was having a hard time going to the bathroom after the holidays….too much junk, and it left me feeling awful and sluggish. I felt like I was in recovery mode, but today I feel full of energy and fantastic. Looking forward to the next 24 days.
Is lean beef an ok protein?
I must know, I had lean beef, not really thinking about it. Then I noticed that it was not on the list. I have left overs, so im wondering if I should eat them or not
Yes, you should be fine. As long as there werent additives, oils, sauces or sugars added you should be good.
Thank you, I was on the fence, but since I only eat organic lean beef I think it’s okay.
Yes. Organic if possible.
I already have gone off gluten because of sensitivities. I’m vegan. I rarely (if ever) eat processed food. And I do 1 hour of HIIT every day along with Pilates! This is going to be a breeze!
Hi everybody 🙂
I’m really excited by this challenge!
Just a question: are gluten-free pastas and bread authorized ?
I mean gluten free pasta + gluten free bread of course 🙂
No because that is still considered processed. It says so in the guide.
Ok thank you for your answer ! It’s not really clear in the guide 🙂
The Pdf says that black bean pasta is ok. I bought red lentil pasta and pea pasta 🙂
Great thank you for your info 🙂 is it taste good?
Beautiful missy Cassey! I have a question!! What do you think about consuming dates while doing the reset? I love dates and they satisfy my sweet tooth. I have been allowing myself 2-3/day so far.
They’re very high in sugar even though they’re natural. But they’re not processed, so technically they’re not forbidden. 2-3 Max should be just fine;)
hi Cassey, actually i’m study . so i don’t have too much time to do the exercise ,i want ask you if that’s okay for the 28 day challenge.
Hi! Does anyone have good breakfast ideas for the 28 day reset? I have been struggling to come up with tasty things. Thanks!
Cassey posted one yesterday! Cauliflower-hash with an egg. Yum!
Think: overnight oats or chia pudding
All kinds of egg dishes
Paleo pancakes (egg/banana
Chicken sausage scramble
This sounds great! But when do you think the best time is to workout? Before or after school/work because before school/work you would get sweaty but after you would be tired and exhausted from the day. What time works best or is there another option?
Is almond milk alright? Ive just started drinking it again to up my calcium intake.
Yes, but I’d do unsweetened original to adhere to the guide.
Hi Cassey!! I have been a fan of you for so long and I really love your helpful tips. I emailed you about something and now I have another things I want to talk to you about. I have been trying to get rid of my love handles for around a year and a half now and i just cant! I think I have done every muffin top melting, fat burning, and love handles video you have multiple times and other things too, nothing seems to work! Please help! Also i am on my second day of the 28 day reset and I am 13. I can’t figure out what to bring in my lunch to school every day. Help!!!
Some of our body types are hereditary. Like bra stap fat…I have it, and my super duper lean gymnast daughter has a tiny bit. So love handles might be where you will store yours, but – there’s always a way to help it! Just have good expectations for your body and no one else’s.
Like Cassey said, much of this is diet. You can do every workout under the sun but not see results if diet isn’t in check.
Because you’re so young and are at the mercy of what’s bought for you, my best advice is just to stop eating any packaged foods, breads, and dairy, if possible. And no sugar. That still leaves lots! Oats, turkeys wraps, hummus and veggies, guacamole, mug cakes, eggs, peanut butter and more. We will be giving lots of healthy options and ideas in the coming weeks:)
Hey Cassey! I would love if you could make a blog post or video or something about what to order at Starbucks! In the PDF it says coffee and tea is okay but what about specialty drinks like lattes or cappuccinos? Thanks!
You can get a coconut or almond Milk latte. They now have natural zero calorie sweetener too! Granulated stevia and something else. Monk fruit maybe. I don’t know but I saw it. Green packet. Top with cinnamon if you like.
As a Starbucks barista, yes Monk fruit is included in the Whole Earth stevia. Also, stick to anything that is a base drink (aka., just milk and espresso) so lattes, cappuccinos, mistos. Nothing with syrup (even the sugar-free ones).
Hi Cassey, is basmati rice ok during the reset challenge? I’m not sure if it has gluten.
And the same question regarding rolled/porridge oats? Not sure if they’re gluten free.
I love coffee is it okay to still drink that and I always eat honey bunches of oats cereal with almond milk is that okay
Coffee is fine. But no cream and sugar. Coconut milk and stevia is ok in coffee.
Nooooo cereal or milk 🙂
Those have gluten and sugar. And the milk is dairy.
She said almond milk which doesn’t have dairy so as long as the cereal doesn’t have sugar then it should be fine
so happy the reset is now free! Im doing it
Hey, Cassey! Are we required to use your workouts, or can I use another fitness program?
I’m planning on starting this challenge in the next couple of days, but I’m having trouble with the milk: I hate almond/coconut milk and, since I’m lactose-intolerant, I already drink a no-lactose, skinny and low sugar milk. Is it okay?
Cashew milk is so good and creamy!! My family loves it and it’s quite mainstream in stores now. We buy the undeeetened by Silk.
Thank you for your reply, but I live in Italy and, unfortunately, we don’t have those sort of things. That’s why I asked if lactose-free milk is okay! 🙂
And, I was wondering if overnight oats are alright. Only lactose-free milk, oats and cinnamon though
Is raw honey ok?
Avoid if possible. It’s not processed or “bad” but it’s a sugar and we are trying to avoid that and reset your palate and habits:)
Yes because it has sugar but it isn’t processed sugar. Also, honey has amazing health benefits and can even prevent diseases
I’m excited to continue on with the 28 Day Reset. I was wondering if we could drink those Kevita drinks while we are on the detox?
Kevita has two or three probiotic drinks that are 5 calories. Lemon cayenne and Hibiscus. Those would be ok I think. The others won’t.
Hey all, my lifestyle is really busy because I am working and going to school and as much as I want to make all my lunches and dinners, it doesn’t always happen. I was wondering if anyone had any good restaurants where you can be sure what you’re eating is clean. Are there any??? I work in an area that is pretty rural, so my options are very limited. Mostly chain restaurants.
Anyone who has done PIIT28 have any advice about this? How have you made it work?
Hi! Did anyone buy the PIIT28 reset? If you have, was it effective? Please tell me how it was! Thanks!:)
Im in!!!! so excited and scared. but i got a great support.
happy New year Cassey! I’m curious about whether white rice is okay I’m the 28 day reset. I live in Japan and their food stable is white rice, so is that okay to eat? Thanks! I’m excited to start my reset!
I would try to get one that is gluten free but yes, it is ok
Thanks for the help!
Is Koko crunch Cereal okay to eat for breakfast and lunch? (With non fat milk)
I wonder if dark chocolate, whole wheat bread and soy milk are ok..
Whole wheat is a grain that contains gluten, so I would say no.
Wheat has gluten, so no.
Soy in moderation. Could you try coconut, almond or cashew milk instead?
Chocolate has sugar, even the dark. Lily’s chocolate is stevia sweetened and vegan, so I suppose it’s better than regular, but again, we are trying to encourage new habits, so if you can go 28 short days without it, it’s best.
Hi Cassey!! I’m wondering whether or not kefir milk is okay during this reset ? I have it almost daily and since the lactose and sugar are gone from the milk I’m wondering if it makes a difference or its just plain dairy that we are not allowed to have
Salt (in moderation) is OK right?
Yes. Sea salt has more minerals than table.
what kind of salad dressing would be acceptable?
I make my own. I have a few on my site: livingleanwitherin.com
I buy a couple from Whole Foods. It’s their brand. Galeos
It’s sold at my local market.
You can also Pinterest “healthy vegan dressing” and lots will pop up.
Can you have steak?
Yes. Leaner cuts are best.
okie, I have an oatmeal that I love. It has pure quick oats, pure rolled oats (oats are gluten free), organic cane sugar, dried apples, organic cinnamon, sea salt. 240 calories per serving. Free From Wheat, Barley, Rye, Dairy, Eggs, Nuts and Peanuts, Mustard, Soy, GMO’s and Sulphites (free of the top 10 allergens). It tastes great and I love it…. so the question….I’m I ok with the cane sugar??? If you want to know about this it’s from rocket foods out of British Columbia Canada – this is not an add. I just love it and want to make sure it works with this! HELP!! lol
Hi Cassey! is grilled meat ok or honey with the 28dayreset challenge thanks! hope I can complete it
Grilled meat is fine. Leaner cuts are best. Honey is technically not.
Raw Honey is ok because it isn’t processed sugar. Grilled meat is technically ok but I try to stay away from it because many red meats have been linked to heart disease
Can we eat brown bread while doing the 28 day reset
how long should you ideally exercise for?
According to Cassey about 30 min (her calendars usually follow this method as does PIIT28
Hello! Is it okay to eat bananas while doing the 28 day reset? They weren`t on the “ok fruits list”
in the PDF, she has it under the list.
Oh thank you I just saw it.
Why can’t we eat gluten?
you should check out the PDF…
You know, this might actually be the year I complete my New Years resolutions!!! ?? Now that I have found your channel I feel I can now be encouraged with challenges and can find healthy, alternative snacks/ meals! So happy I found your channel and can’t wait to complete the 28 day reset!!! Thanks you Cassie!!!!!??♀️⛹?♀️????♀️?❤️?
hi, i’m wondering if soy milk is allowed because for me its hard to find almond or cashew milk.
What’s wrong with eating gluten?
I think because people think that gluten makes them fat. I mean, unless you have celiac disease, there’s zero reason to give it up. Especially now that you can get tested to find out if that’s what is the problem. People jump on these anti-carb/anti-gluten bandwagon because they want more excuses to load up on animal flesh (or so it seems), so they turn the healthy food into the enemy. Of course, i’m not talking about white processed gluten products. That stuff is complete crap. But proper gluten-filled grains are good for you. Besides, since the average person doesn’t get enough fiber in their diet, preferring to load up on meat, and processed foods, having people give up healthy gluten products puts them at risk for getting less nutrients, and fiber. I mean, there’s only a few things found in meat, iron, B12 (if they’ve been injected with synthetic B12, that is, or actually allowed to graze, which is quite rare), and little else. So take away healthy whole grains for fear of gluten means the average person is going to very possibly get quite sick.
Perfect reply haha gluten is just a protein in wheat products that some people may not be able to digest due to an autoimmune disease (celiac) . Overall, it does does not effect to health of those who eat it except when allergic or to those who may have celiac disease. Some people may be slightly allergic without having severe effects, so cutting gluten out of their diet can sometimes help if they have gluten sensitivity. But for the majority, gluten should be nothing to be afraid of. Or get tested to make sure. 🙂 I hope this is informative!
I’m just going to leave this here…
Gluten is an inflammatory food and even people without sensitivities have trouble with it. Most unhealthy foods contain it. It’s for these reasons (and countless more that can be googled) that they’re being omitted for just 28 days.
What about 100% whole grains bread?
It has gluten so no
i am so excited for this challenge!!!!! I will full on commit to it! Trying for my sister and friend to join me but they’re not 100% sure…. sigh
anyone need a buddy?
Let’s do it! 😀
Wanna follow me on Instagram or FB??
whats your insta?

I started this a day early and I’m pretty excited about it! I have a question though that I’m hoping someone in the community or Casey can help me with. My birthday in coming up in less than a week and I would like to be able to have a “treat” of some sort that day. Does any one have a good suggestion for a replacement to traditional birthday desserts that would still stick to the plan? Thank you!! <3
Make a watermelon cake with chocolate drizzle! Pinterest or blogilates.com
I’m so ready! Let’s go! Any specific Instagram hashtags?
Hi! I was just wondering what I should do. I’m a student so I don’t have a lot of money and I get free food at school, but it might have some processed foods. It tends to be healthy (not like pizza or hamburgers), but yeah, I’m not sure. I’m hoping that I won’t have to use money for food that I could get for free so is it okay if I eat one meal at school? I am vegan though, so it would be dairy free
Hi Cassey! I’m just wondering about what if what I need is to GAIN weight. In highschool four years ago I was at a 105 lb, but now in college I’m at 88 lbs and can’t gain anymore.
How tall are you? Height plays a significant role in determining the right weight
I’m 5’1″ or 1.56m, but I don’t know, I’m kind of desperate
How many calories do you eat? You may need to eat more.
I’m not sure, but around 1500 calories to 2000
Try eating more fatty foods, such as nuts (as long as you aren’t allergic) or avocados. Also, just eat more in general and do more weights and a bit less cardio. Basically, high protein and healthy fats should help you. Fish like salmon might be a great way to start. Good luck!
Thank you so much for the advice! I’ll definitely do all this!
Less than 1450 calories is considered weight loss eating still. You probably need more calories. Try adding one more 300-350 cal meal.
Will do, thank you 😀
Are potatoes allowed on the plan?
Hey I just wanted to ask if youre allowed to eat normal potatos or dates. Maybe a stupid question but i just wanted to make sure that i do everything right 😀
Potatoes and dates are whole foods. And don’t fall under the category of gluten, dairy, added sugar (so long as they’re natural dates), or alcohol.
Okay, thanks a lot! ?
HI Cassey! <3 I'm wondering if oatmilk is ok with the 28day reset? 🙂 Thank you so much for this awesome challenge, I'm so pumped to get started.
Yes, it’s fine. Hopefully it’s sugar- free? Or maybe you make your own?
How about soy or almond milk, is this okay?
Those are actually recommended! Coconut milk is very awesome as well 🙂
I love how put together this calendar is, it’s so easy to follow. Thank you so much Cassey for spending your time to make this! Much appreciated. <3
thank you so much cassey. im so glad the 28 day reset is free
CASSEY, HELP!!!! my account on your blogilates.com site and PIIT20 1.0 mysteriously disappeared. I can’t log on and i’m not sure why. Can you please fix it 🙂
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I was wondering if soy and soy based foods were okay (tofu, soy milk, etc.)?
I’d say yes, even better if they have only soy beans and water in the milk. I’d stay away from TVP, or other processed soy meats, but then those aren’t very healthy anyway. Tofu is a whole food. It’s only “processed” in that it’s been blended into puree and then pressed into a cake. Tempeh is awesome, too. It’s a whole food, that’s fermented. If you can make your own soy/almond/coconut/quinoa/hemp/oat/rice milk, then that’s better than store bought, too. All of this is far better for you than dairy and meat, by the way. Dairy, especially, is poison. If you need recipes for the milks or anything, check online!
Hey Cassie….Will this plan help me gain weight?
It’s supposed to help you lose it and feel better, and get more healthy xD ^^
I have the same question. I want to do the reset but not lose weight
hi! I don’t really have control over my diet, i guess,suggestions but it usually gets shut down, again because of monetary reasons. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Ummm I’m not sure how to ask my mom if I can do this but I really need to how do you think I should tell her about this
I got the same problem…
You could say, that one of your friends are doing it, and they asked if you want to join, just because they don’t want to be alone? xD Idk
I’m sure she’ll let you do this because this is healthy (but she might put some limitations such as not excluding dairy from your diet). Try not to focus on the weight loss part–tell her that this will help boost your energy, clear your skin up, and make you feel ultimately better. Hopefully she won’t say no to that! 🙂
Almond milk has more calcium than cow milk. Its cheaper at Costco and has longer expiration date.
i can’t have almond or coconut milk so am i able to have rice milk just to at least put in my coffee? <3
Hello! I’ve been wanting to get committed to one of your plans for months now, but I’m a little hesitant due to some restrictions. I’m a high schooler; this means I don’t have much control over my schedule and my diet (since my parents do most of the cooking and grocery shopping). Would you have any suggestions on how to work around these limitations and still stick to a daily regime? Thank you so much!
I had a similar issue when I was in high school (when I first discovered Blogilates). I went to my parents and told them how important it was to me to be healthy. I asked my dad to pick up healthier snacks for the family and even gave him some easy healthier recipes he could make. I offered to cook once or twice a week. It seemed to work out well for us!
Hopefully this helps!
It’s hard for me to do that too, but whenever my parents would say they would go grocery shopping I would ask to come. I would point out healthy things in the store and put healthy options on their list.
Oh and it should be easy to control breakfast and lunch.
I actually find it very hard to control breakfast as I do not have a lot of time at nite to prepare for it much less in the morning, I am not a morning person so I get extremely hungry when I wake up, I want food and I want it fast! hahaha I guess if you make a healthy plan for what to eat each day for breakfast it is easier, well at least for me it is.
SAME GIRLLL! As a middle schooler, I don’t have control over my diet that much and it’s hard for me espically bcz I’m Indian and my mom always makes Indian food.Its healthy but it definitely has the things Cassey told us to avoid. I can’t cook much bcz of studying and homework. So I’d suggest keeping the same meals but instead of having unhealthy snacks, try eating fruits and granola bars.
I can so relate to this. My mom makes indian food everday too! And I can’t cook either. Maybe try talking with your mom?
Ya, I’ll try that but we eat healthy. So as long as I don’t eat junk food and eat fruits instead. I’M DOING IT!
I RELATE TO YOU SO MUCH middle school doesnt give you much advantages.
Here’s how I approach obstacles: I list out all I CAN do and all I DO have control over and I start there. I feel something is better than nothing- so can you pack yourself the reset snacks and handle your own breakfast? And then just not eat bread or dairy? Even if mom is cooking- just stick to protein, veggies and healthy carbs. Say no to sugar. Those would be huge win! So be proud of what you do-do instead of lament the small parts you’d can’t 😉
This sounds great, but I am 14 and my mom doesn’t want to change what we eat for dinner. She doesn’t use processed food but she is very against changing how we eat. Will it be okay if I eat smaller portions of her food and follow the 28- day reset for breakfast and lunch?
This is so great and I can’t wait to get started so I’m meal planning and realize I can’t live without creamer in my coffee. So I guess I’ll make it! Found this and thought I should share: https://ruralspin.com/2013/12/15/10-homemade-healthy-coffee-creamers/
I’m planning to start with just the french vanilla one and use stevia instead of sugar and see how it goes!
I’m going to rock with this new challenge. Cute video. Thanks for your motivation because I’m ready.
I am going to try my best to stick to this plan this month! I love the idea and I think we can all do it together! I cannot wait to begin!
Can I have gluten free pasta? (like brown rice pasta)
How old is the for? What ages?
This is just what i need omg
Even though we can’t have alcohol, are we still able to drink kombucha? There’s usually a trace amount but I love it more than anything!
Thank you so much for working so hard Cassie, I love all of you guys and i can’t wait to get started!
I am in but will be traveling jan 19 thur 26 so might not make it the whole 28days but i will try.
This is just what i needed!! Gonna do my best and be healthy this year! ٩(๑❛ᴗ❛๑)۶
Woo!! I’m excited for this, I’m gonna totally get this for my resolution of the new year. Thank you I love you so much, you’re such an inspiration!
What happened if I run around my neighborhood about 5 times(my neighborhood is not a big neighborhood and is also not a little neighborhood
Hi, cassey. This has been in my mind when I want to work out. Is a 14 years old can do intense workouts? Will it affect my height? Or not? I’m afraid that it may affect my growing body. Can you help me out? It bother me so much. Thank you. Lovelots.
I started playing tennis since I was eleven and began intense workouts when I was twelve or thirteen. I would say that the exercise from those workouts boosted my height (of course, not scientifically proven) but I’m taller than my siblings by quite a few inches, possibly from the exercise! Jumping roping can help, but maybe not squatting with weights bc I’ve heard that it can stunt your growth. I think conditioning like what Blogilates does can help lengthen you and ultimately your height, bc that’s what it did to me! 🙂
Thank you for telling me your experiences! Atleast, I can do it now with no worries. Have a great day!
Absolutely love the Disney video!! So funny!! So proud that my New Year´s resolution is basically carry on my new healthy habits! I have lost 20 pounds since September and 4 inches in my waist!! -also in my boobs and butty – 🙁 Hahaha!! Never mind, everything looks great and feels awesome! Also, since my taste have change due to clean eating everything tastes soooooooo good!! Have you notice? Pre-process food end having the same tasting at the end, but when you don´t have it for a while, every new veggy, spice, and natural sweetener taste so incredibly good!! Happy New Year everyone
I am in!
Quick question! For the calendar, should i do all the exercises in one go or can i do them throughout the day?
I’m so excited to start the 28 days reset! I’ll do the beginners plan cause i haven’t worked out for a long time!
Wish you all the best for 2017! And THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing all this wonderful and helpfully workouts, recipes, lifestyle tips and and and with us!
Greets from Berlin, Germany!
I’m in 🙂
Is there’s a January 2017 workout calendar for this Cassey?
So if this challenge is free where do I get the workouts??
I am in???
Hey is brown rice ok to eat while doing this cleanse
Yes, it’s on the “ok” list if you download the pdf 🙂
This is amazing, I have seen so much improvement in my by body by following your workout calendars. Thx so much!!!
I am a big fan of sushi, may I know whether sushi rice is allowed in this plan? Or any other types of rice? I am Chinese and have to have rice everyday, if not I feel faint. Also are lentils allowed?
Brown rice and lentils are allowed, they’re on the list of “ok” foods if you download the pdf!
Very good question. I’m no nutritionist, but I think if you feel you truly need a certain type of food in your diet, and you feel unhealthy if you don’t, you should eat it. This reset is to find foods that causes your body harm. Clearly rice is perfectly fine for you, and I’m sure many asian people as well. I’d say, go for the rice!
Hi! Is soymilk ok for this challenge?
I am in, so gonna do this. I have been working out 4 to 5 days a week, and love how my body has changed a lot. Looking forward to following the diet plan. Love everything you do for us Cassey.
What do we eat when it’s over? Can we go back to our normal eating habits of dairy and sugar?
Oh my gosh! I have never done an actual challenge like this before! I always do your random workouts and they help so much! Defiantly mentioning this on my Youtube channel!! Love you! And can’t wait to begin!
Hey cassey! I had a question is the reset
for those of us that don’t want to lose weight? I have trouble gaining weight but want to exercise and eat healthy. Do you have any suggestions
I noticed in the nutrition guide some recipes call for Greek yogurt. so is that okay to include? and what about honey for tea?
The greek yogurt is only AFTER the 28 day reset when you can add in dairy if you want to.
I would LOOOVE to join this challenge!
But… I’m a teen, and i have to eat what my parents make. I could try to cut out as much as possible of these things, but i think the dinner is gonna be a problem. I’ve tried talking to my parents about eating healthier, but it doesn’t really seem like working… Else, i have to make the dinner for all of us, but i’m pretty young, and i have no idea of what foods to make. (That maybe is easy… xD)
AND! Does that mean, that i can’t eat yogurt?! o.o Rip
I’m gonna try anyway.. XD <3
what about honey?
Oh my gosh so excited!! Thanks for sharing this Cassey!
Oh my gosh! I’m so excited yet scared to start this! I stopped working out and eating healthy in November 2015 because I had surgery and had a two month recovery time so after I just never got back to working out. I want to do this so bad because I am exhausted of being sick and tired all the flipping time. I live with SIX-diseases (asthma, chronic daily migraines, chronic stomach pain, Chrons Disease, fibermyaloga, & Endometrosis) so my life is always a struggle especially when it comes to energy and staying movitated. I hope that I am able to stick to this…the only thing I’m weary about is the dairy because I take the Depo shot, my doctor wants me to have extra calcium daily to keep my bones strong.
Dairy isn’t the most easily absorbed form of calcium. Look for veggies high in calcium, such as leafy greens, or maybe add in a supplement for the month. If you need to eat dairy to be healthy though then do it!-the point is to be healthy and feel good, right?! 🙂 Good job trying to stay motivated despite your health issues (you sound like my brother, sister-in-law, and myself all combined!). Do as much as you can and remember that some is better than none. You got this!!
Dairy actually depletes calcium from your bones. It’s a lie that the dairy industry started long ago that has become believed in full by the public and the medical system. Milk has so much sugar in it, which depletes calcium from your bones, plus animal protein, which is very hard on your body and also depletes calcium and other nutrients during digestion. Add in the imbalance of Magnesium and calcium, and you end up with a complete mess in your body. Milk products actually create holes in your bones when your body processes it. Dairy has been scientifically proven actually be the root cause of osteoporosis, breast, and prostate cancers. In fact, it’s been found that the cultures that eat the most dairy have the highest number of people with all of these. Do your own research. There’s far, far better forms of high calcium out there. Kale, sesame seed, figs, black eyed peas, plant based milks (especially when they have added calcium and Vitamin D), seaweed, turnip greens (greens in general), white beans, oranges, and tofu, to name the ones with the highest amount. And these are all more balanced for your body, and will actually build stronger bones.
It really does show how good a marketing scam they built that generations of people automatically believe that dairy is good for them, without question. The only living beings on this planet that cow’s milk is good for are baby cow’s. And they stop drinking it once weened.
I am so on for this challenge, goodbye chocolate hello 28 day reset. Thanks Cassey!
Could I use the December workout calendar with this program?
any workout calendar is fine!
This challenge actually terrifies me!! NO WINE?! NO CHEESE? What the heck do I put in my morning coffee?! I’m scared, but I’m doing it!!! Cassey, I love you but I have a feeling this time next week I won’t! LOL
HI! So you’ll put coconut milk in your coffee. It is really good. I like to make my own, but if that’s too weird, you can buy it. I blend 4 cups of warm water with 2 cups unsweetened shredded dried coconut on high in my Vitamix for 1 minute. I like adding a dash of stevia and vanilla extract. Strain through a nut bag and leave in a Mason jar for 2 hours on counter- then move to fridge. You can do without cheese:)
Awesome, thank you!
Cinnamon tastes great in black coffee. Cardamon and other flavorful/sweet spices make a relish coffee too. Warning, cinnamon gets gooey when it cools down. So try and drink your coffee before it cools.
That’s a really good idea!! Thank you!
Oatly makes an amazing oat milk that is awesome coffee. That’s before you get to almond milk, soy milk, rice milk (though that one is a bit thin), quinoa milk, hemp milk, coconut milk, and so on. There are more plant milks out there that are actually GOOD for you (you’re not a baby cow, plus I’m assuming your past the age of weening from your own mother’s breast, right?), won’t cause osteoporosis, or breast cancer, doesn’t destroy the planet, or steal babies from their mommies after the moms have been raped repeatedly (actually what happens in the dairy industry, no exaggeration).
What about coffee? Is that a no no?
Coffee is a yes! I drink it every day with my homemade coconut milk…So you’ll put coconut milk in your coffee. It is really good. I like to make my own, but if that’s too weird, you can buy it. I blend 4 cups of warm water with 2 cups unsweetened shredded dried coconut on high in my Vitamix for 1 minute. I like adding a dash of stevia and vanilla extract. Strain through a nut bag and leave in a Mason jar for 2 hours on counter- then move to fridge.
Hi Cassey! I’m a big fan of your workout videos and I really want to try the 28 day program with the meal plan but I’m worried that I’ll have a day where I’ll slip up and ruin what progress I’ve made. Im also worried I won’t be able to keep up the lifestyle after 28 days
I’m joining to try to help my skin! My eczema has been its worst ever this year and I’ve been really wanting to reset my diet to see if it’s a food intolerance behind it. Thanks so much for putting this together Cassey, it’s exactly what I need!! So excited!
Guys if you want some 28 day reset friendly vegan options, here’s a free sample meal plan for that: https://www.blogilates.com/blog/2016/10/23/free-sample-vegan-meal-plan/
I have a huge sweet tooth for chocolates! What should I do?
Eating for blood sugar stabilization will help with those cravings. A lot of times we crave chocolate when our blood sugar is out of whack, or when we need magnesium, for example. But if you are sure to eat balanced meals without overdoing carbs, you’ll start to see those cravings diminish. Also- whole foods are slower to digest and will keep you fuller longer. Sometimes we crave sweets for emotional reasons or out of habit. So- my advice is to try the balanced meals every 3 hours to start. If by 9 p.m. you’re ready to shoot someone over a chocolate chip, grab a piece of fruit, almonds or 1 TBS cashew butter. You need to give it 5 days before you retrain yourself. But you will. I think some of it is going into it with a “I will not cheat under any circumstance” mentality. I did a similar program and cheating wasn’t an options because I did it with my whole family. I peer pressured myself into sticking with it, and by day 30, I was SOOO glad I had because I realized I am stronger than any craving.
wow!! thank you so much for the amazing advice! I’ll definitely refer to this when I get cravings throughout the challenge <3
I’m so in! Thanks Cassey!
I’m in! Didn’t do well in December due to all the parties I have to go and all the temptations.. haha. New year, new start! I will count calories while taking the challenge as well as doing 2nd round of PIIT28
I love this! I have a quick question – is soy milk okay to drink during this reset challenge?
Soy isn’t ideal. Unless it’s organic, most soy is GMO. Furthermore, soy is an endocrine disrupter. But we didn’t say you couldn’t because people have different feelings on soy. So my advice is, if you eat it- it must ALWAYS be organic, and monitor how much you take in.
Can you make a video on super yummy dishes or snacks to make while doing this challenge? I usually eat all these foods that you want us to omit ( minus the alcohol because I’m only 13 ) everyday! So I wanted your input and help on what to eat that is good for my body, You inspired me to do this challenge, and I may even do it with my mom!?
I’m going to try my best! Thanks for this opportunity Cassey 🙂 I really appreciate everything you have created and shared with everyone so that we can become more confident, healthier, and stronger people.
Does it still count if we start on the third?
Anything is better than nothing! You definitely should!
Omgggg I’m so excited for this !! I’ve been so tired of being bloated because of the October, November, and Christmas consecutive feasts !! I always feeln obligated to try everything at least a little. I’m so happy and ready to see what this program will do ! Thanks Cassey !! ? ❤
I have been talking about doing some sort of cleanse to my body for a while because I just have been eating well and my stomach and just my whole body isn’t feeling as great as it should so I think this would be a great thing to do I already downloaded the PDF and I’m ready to start 2017
YES! looking forward to 2 Jan! And with the fit planner it will be easier to keep on track! 🙂 Exited!
I forgot to use the code for the nutrition guide ??
AndI dont know what to eat like what can I make for breakfast and lunch and dinner with out added sugar and dairy,and gluten
There are so many things!! Breakfast- any egg dish, paleo pancakes, oatmeal. Lunch- salads, cauliflower fried rice, grilled chicken and veggies. Dinner- lettuce wraps, naked burritos, paleo chicken fingers.
I suggest looking up recipes on Pinterest. There are thousands. I eat this way every day and never run out of new ideas. I get really inspired off Pinterest. Search gluten free dinners. Or grain free dinners. Or paleo dinners. Those will generally also be without sugar and dairy.
Hey ! I want to do the challenge but I’m vegetarian. Would this challenge be ok for me ? xx
Yes!! For sure!! You rely on eggs and egg whites, nutritional yeast, black bean noodles, quinoa and beans/lentils.
I can’t wait! I’ve been exercising a few times a week for a long time, I’m slim but my belly don’t have any muscles, any ABS 🙁 My nutrition is rather healthy (I mean) but sometimes I have bad days and I reach for the chocolate – I feel like I’m addicted to her. But I have a lot of motivation for 2017 🙂 I want to know what I do wrong and when I saw your 28-Day Reset Challenge immediately I thought it was something for me. I hope that will prepare my body to wear nice dress, which I’m going to wear on my prom in February. Sorry for my English 🙂 Greetings to you, Cassie 🙂
Oh and when’s the January calendar coming out?
YASSS!!!! I am SO in!
This is gonna be one of my top to-do things for the New Year’s resolution! Excited and ready for this challenge. I was just thinking the other day to come up with my own meal plan for the month based on nutrition guide on eatingwell.com and your videos, but you did all the hard work for us so THANK YOU SO MUCH for that. I love you so much! Wish you a great year ahead
Cassey, this is WONDERFUL! I had already decided for the first seven weeks of 2016 to do no refined sugar and no white bread (two of my weaknesses) so this is the perfect kick starter! Yay!
Thank you much,
Hey, Cassey! Definitely joining in, just wanted to ask a question.
When you say no gluten, do you mean all types of gluten, including potatoes and corn? Or just bread and pasta? Also, when you say no added sugars, does that mean no sugar at all (except for in fruit form)? Thank you!
Hey Nara, if you watch her YouTube video, she explains it in much greater detail and will answer your above questions! ???
There’s no gluten in potatoes or corn. There’s a definition of gluten on the PDF. Gluten is in bread, pasta, cereal, crackers and baked goods, and well as in sauces like terriyaki and soy sauce, and some dressings. I wouldn’t overdo potatoes or corn, because bang for your buck, they’re not the best veggies–but they are whole, and therefore are allowed.
I’m in! I just ordered a bunch of popflex clothes for the first time so I’ll be able to rock some super cute outfits while I do it too lol!
Whoa. Cassey. Mistake!! Broccoli is not a carbohydrate. It’s a very low carb vegetable.
In fact next to spinach, when I was going Low Carb it was the only vegetables I really ate. Broccoli has 2 net carbs in it. No!
Broccoli and Quinuoa is fine. Don’t confuse people by telling them they can’t have both.
Your Build a Meal needs some serious help. Why aren’t their any vegetables added in?
And 70$!! What happened to when your items were affordable?
Many vegetables are so low carb that you can freely add in green and crunchy veggies without worry on top of a build a meal, or in the event of hunger. Veggies are our friends! The Build A Meal was designed to give you super quick eyeball options. No one is saying you cannot mix up, or have some broccoli WITH your quinoa, but, 2 cups of broccoli will fill most people up, which is why it is standing alone there. Vegetables are absolutely carbs. Are they the same as bread, pasta or rice? No… but foods fall into three categories: protein, fats and carbs, so to categorize them, you have to stick them in there. I do not believe the intention was to suggest you cannot have veggies with other meals; the idea is to eat whole foods. Eat at regular meal intervals, and certainly have some celery or bell peppers or broccoli on the side if you want. But if you want your side to be broccoli, load up and have a couple cups…which is why it is listed as such on the Build-A-Meal.
for “ok proteins” it says etc, and since for health reasons i go low carb as well as vegetarian, is tofu okay, i was just wondering what the etc would also allow?
We didn’t want to add it or exclude it. There are reasons it isn’t the BEST protein source, and it is, indeed, processed, but we understand it’s desired by some people, and is often one of the only protein sources available for some people, so for that reason, it can be used in moderation, if needed.
What age group is the 28 day reset challenge fit for??
then what we eat cassey ? help 🙁
There’s so much out there. I’d go on Pinterest to get some fun ideas. Look up “grain-free dairy-free dinners” or “paleo breakfasts” or just pause every time you go to make a meal and check if the source is whole. Like breakfast: eggs and veggies with salsa. Lunch: Salad with turkey and homemade dressing of a little olive oil and vinegar with mustard. Dinner: Naked Burritos. Snacks: hardboiled eggs and fruit, celery and PB, hummus and carrots. It’s basic, but it works!
thank you 🙂
I’m super excited about this new year, to continue taking care of my body and to eat right. Happy 2017 Cassey and thank you so much. Love you my friend
Elimination diets are sometimes necessary, often helpful, but also can get expensive if you’re trying to find suitable replacements for all those things you’re cutting out. I’ll hang on to this PDF and consider trying it sometime when I know my budget can handle it and I can squeeze in more time for cooking which I know this will require me to do more of.
I am trying to get serious again about my health as I’ve gotten quite out of shape over the past year or 2. Was considering restarting PIIT but I did it last March when 1.0 came out and I’m one of those rare people who didn’t have success with it (it was murder on my joints, somehow even with the modifications). My body isn’t ready haha. So I think I’m going to stick with the free calendars for now. I’ve been doing them very minimally in the past and I want to see if following them more closely will help me see some results. The fun part will be figuring out how to do it when I work 60+ hours a week…I guess that’ll be MY 2017 challenge!
Which brings up another point…Cassey, thank you for keeping the majority of your workouts free. I buy things from you occasionally because I support what you’re doing, but when money’s tight it means a lot that I can still look to you for fitness.
???? so excited
Hi cassey! I’m so excited about this challenge! I was really looking for something like that! I have a question, what about soy (in all its forms: edamame, soy milk, soy sauce, soy yogurt, tofu…)? And about protein powders? Thank you!
Sofia, stay away from soy. The way we process it now is bad for us it’s not funny. When you eat soy it needs to be fermented before it’s even considered healthy for you.
this seams like quite good for someone with a normal diet. but im wondering if its okay for me (im pescitarian) i feel like a lot of the stuff i can eat without having to buy just imported food disapears (since i live in norway wheat and diary is quite an important part of my diet) anyone have any clue wheter or not it will be smart for me to follow this when i dont eat meat and try to avoid imported food (with the exeption of the necesseties)?
so no carbs it looks like?
I want to do this! But dairy, oat and cereal is a big part of my breakfast and most meals… how can I omit them would be such a huge challenge! >< I am scared!
Actually, oats are glutenfree, but alot aren’t packed in a glutenfree environment. So just make sure it says the oats are glutenfree and you can still eat those. Also things like quinoa (it’s a seed) and buckwheat (despite the name, is gluten-free)
I’m so exciting!!!! 🙂
I’m sooooo in!
I was going to try and design my own challenge based on your videos, but you already did all the hard work for me! I’m super lean but I also have a bit of a problem with my abs, especially lower abs, I’m confident I’ll look better after the 28 days and it will brighten up what is usually a very dull month.
Thank you, Cassey!!!
It’s too bad in your “protein” section that you don’t include ANY beans in their native form! Only black bean noodles ? What about just beans ? There are so many types and they are great for you… Would have been cool to see a “Version 2” with removing all animal products from your diet and seeing how that makes you feel! It would be coherent with when you had the vegan and omnivore diet plans when they came out…
It does say beans on the list =)
Ah, yes! Missed that; It seems so unbalanced to list so many different types of meats/seafoods separately but then to group all types of beans together. It would have been nice to have either “meat/seafood/beans” or list them for all three.
I’m in! I’m ready to finally figure out why I always feel terrible! Thanks for the opportunity!
Love Blogilates and Cassey you rock also South Korea is a nice country so please just see this as a joke:
I’m currently studying in South Korea as an exchange student so I can’t really “practice” this otherwise reset challenge because… well there is little fresh vegetable but a lot of kimchi in the Korean cuisine. There is A lot of kimchi..and it looks like cup noodle is a national food…. lol
So ready for this!! I’ve been really off track since my initial PIIT transformation, but I’m ready to get stronger! Thanks for being so positive and encouraging, Cassey 🙂 I can’t wait to see everyone’s progress!
It’s hard to control what to eat when you’re living with the whole family who each wants to eat different stuffs everyday :((
Hey Cassey! I have celiac disease and obviously should stay away from gluten) I’m going to try 28 day reset (yaaas I’m so excited!!!) but I have a question. To keep in balance my health I shouldn’t exclude dairy, because if I exclude dairy, I’ll have problems with getting all the necessary vitamins and minerals I don’t get from gluten. What should I do in this situation? Love you, Cassey! xoxo, Sasha
What vitamins and minerals do you need from dairy? You can find protein in literally everything, and for calcium/vitamin D there are fortified plant-based milks 🙂
Eat dairy! If you exclude gluten and dairy you really have to watch your food intake, so that you eat all your nutrients!
Well, in the end, it’s still a diet. A diet is defined as someone or something that tells you what, when, how often and how much you should eat. A diet gives us the feeling, that our bodies are not okay as it is, we need to fix it. And in the end, the chance is very high that we not only gain all the weight back, no even more than that! Diets don’t work and more than 80% of all diets fail. I know you earn your money in this fitness industry, but I still hope that one day you will find another way than diets. The popularity of body positivity, health at every size and intuitive eating is growing and an alternative to all the diet mindset! Love your body, don’t hate it! <3
I am ready!
Too bad I have to eat gluten right now..! I might have celiac disease (allergic to gluten) but before I’ve got all the tests done I have to continue eating gluten!! ?? can’t wait for piit 3.0 btw!!! ??
Hey Cassey! You are sooo awesome (had to get it out), you’ve made me so much healthier in the last 2 months I’ve been with blogilates. I was wondering if you can still eat wholemeal bread while doing the challenge or is it too processed?
I am 5 months pregnant at the moment but as soon as the baby is born and it’s save I’ll do this challenge for sure!!
Good luck for everyone starting the 2nd of januari!
And thank you Cassie for making this available for everyone 🙂
I am so keen to do this but I have a family function that will be so hard not to have a wine at! Will it ruin the whole 28 days if I have one night of wine?
Im in! Thanks for the challenge. Advanced Happy Birthday Cassey & advanced Happy New Year PIITsters & POPsters! This will be a great way to start 2017! 🙂
challenge accepted! Lol. Can’t wait to begin my 2017 with this #28DayReset Challenge!
Same here with u!!
Does the reset exclude lemonade and orange juice?
You can count me in! Resetting my body and getting healthy is the perfect way for me start off the new year. #motivation #sheddingpounds #determination #nogivingup
So very in…just hitting my 40s and it’s getting harder and harder to lose weight
I have about 30 pounds to lose…hoping this will finally do it
Quick question, may be kind of dumb… does the reset exclude protein bars?
She said “more than 3 ingredients” counts as processed so probably… Look into making your own at home from whole, plant-based ingredients! http://www.nomeatathlete.com/homemade-energy-bar-recipe/
Yay! So excited. I just purchased the 28 day PIIT and am on day 2!
Is it possible to have sweet potato noodle, soy milk, tofu, coffee, honey, soy or fish sauce, sriracha, stock powder and peanut oil in the reset?
Is it possible to have sweet potato noodle, soy milk, coffee, honey, soy or fish sauce, sriracha, stock powder and peanut oil in the reset?
Can we have dairy product alternatives like plant based yogurts?
Yes, she just said no dairy !
Hi Cassey, i have been consuming dairy (goat’s milk) with bran cereal and oats as breakfast for a couple of years and i realised that it really helped in my digestive tracks. When i stop consuming it, i find it really hard to go. Are there any other ways to keep a good digestive system without introducing milk, oats and cereal into my meals during the 28 day reset? Thank you 🙂
Hi Cassey! Thank you so much for making this challenge to kick off the new year!! I was wondering if you had any tips for a college student that doesn’t have access to a kitchen (aka I can only eat whatever is being offered in the dining hall, which is usually unhealthy an). I really want to lose this freshman fifteen …
Casey, I already started this 2 weeks ago (believe it or not)!!! I feel amazing, and my acne is already disappearing <3 Can't wait to do it with you!
Yes I’m in. I’ve lately developed a lot of digestive problems like bloating and I’m sure this will DEFINITELY help me pinpoint what that issue is !
I think you’d definitely benefit from this program then! And perhaps afterwards you can do some research into the paleo diet which might help you out further.
Is soy milk ok? I’m allergic to almond milk and such and I was just wondering if soy would be an ok alternative.
Soy would be a good alternative if you’re not avoiding soy in a diet 🙂 so sorry to hear you can’t have nut milk!
Hi, thanks for creating this. I need to get rid of my belly fat and I have big big problem with acnes and pimples. I’m gonna try this. But one question tho. Is it okay to eat rice??
Brown rice only
what about gluten free bread??
No gluten free bread for 28 days since it is still very processed.
What about ezekiel bread? Also, I wasn’t sure about tofu…is tofu allowed? And finally, cheat meals? Sometimes i want some gelato… *bashfully looks away
Ezekiel bread is gluten free I believe:) and tofu is allowed although I personally don’t think soy is good in a diet. 28 days without cheating–see if you can handle it! I’m in this with you and the no dairy thing is killing me!
Will there be a PIIT 3.0 coming out in 2017? I absolutely love PIIT and am ready for my next challenge!
I’m working on it!
What about tuna or prunes? Can you eat those?
Tuna is water is ok. Prunes are fine but limit them since they are dry so you’ll end up eating more than if you ate a real plum.
Agreed! I personally actually don’t eat fruits at all. 🙂 but you don’t have to do as I do.
I’m in for sure! Since I gave birth to my baby girl, losing weight is a struggle to me. I will stick to this 28 days plan.
Hello from Malaysia, Cassey!
Congrats on the baby girl!
CONGRATS ON THE BABY GIRL! What’s her name?
I’m so excited for this and I am praying to see great results! Let’s do this Blogilates fam!???❤
Yes, you will!
Thank you just what I need
You are so so welcome!
I’m so in on this!! I’m going to try my absolute best to stick to this 28 Day Reset as best I can xxx
Cassey you motivate me to be the best version of myself, and I have a feeling that this reset is just what I need after too many Christmas lunches and dinners 😉 Love you Cassey!!!!!
Yes it’s going to do us all so good!
Way to go!!!
I was really hoping that the fit planner 2017 would go on sale!
