Title: Colour Fast Re-Set
Creator: Janet Thomson
“Colour Fast Re-Set” is designed to help you fast track your way to a healthy body and mind in just two weeks. It comes in the form of an online detox program that includes nutritional background information, recipes, a meal planner, and a practical resource video and audio pack. The goal is to restore emotional health and create a loving relationship with food. There is also extra support offered via a dedicated members’ Facebook Community.
The program consists of the following:-
- E-book with colour-coded recipes
- E-book with the nutritional background explanations on the different categories (colour codes) of foods and their effects on the body
- A practical resource pack containing videos and audios that help you to relax, create a new relationship with food (by empowering yourself and breaking through old thought habits) by using simple techniques from Thought Field Therapy (TFT). You can store these on your Smartphone for anytime access.
- Facebook Community for 24/7 online support
Most of us know what is healthy, though many still don’t necessarily apply what they ‘know’. Janet has given this a lot of thought finding fresh ways to explain it and make it just that much more palatable (pun intended). Call me old-fashioned, the eBook doesn’t have a contents page, so you just jump in ‘buffet style’. I found the content to be highly insightful, condensed and to the point and easily (ahem) digestible.
Let’s dive a little deeper into the various sections now…
Mind: Janet shows us useful techniques to target unhelpful thought patterns and habits, by means of videos and audios complete with rationale and information, relaxing guided meditations, visualisations and several extremely practical, easy to learn TFT practices.
Meals: The program concentrates on consuming a certain amount of food per (colour-coded) food group for each meal, emphasising the regular use of prebiotics and probiotics.
Method: The idea is to gradually increase the level of intermittent fasting (I.F), with a shorter eating ‘window’ built up steadily. This improves, or ‘resets’ the microbiome in our gut.
Fruits and vegetables: 7-8 portions a day, of any portion size can be eaten (no need to measure) along with a maximum of one portion of dried fruits per meal.
Starches, such as bread, potatoes, pasta and cereals should be limited, with Thomson advising you to eat one to two portions a day, or even a little less for those wanting to lose weight. Choose seeded, rye or sourdough bread, sweet potatoes, brown or vegetable rice, quinoa or couscous as healthier alternatives.
Fats and proteins, including dairy products, meat, fish, nuts and seeds. Aim to replace some of the meat with large amounts of vegetables. Blue foods should be included in every meal, as they reduce hunger hormone levels more than any other colour and mean you won’t feel the need to snack.
Food or drinks with high sugar, processed or alcohol-containing content should generally be avoided. (Though the occasional glass of wine or delectable dessert won’t sabotage any long term goals!)
I’m very familiar with overeating and snack cravings myself, and was very pleasantly surprised to notice how easy this 2-week program was to follow. I díd repeat a day or two though, as advised by Janet, as I didn’t feel ready at that point for one less meal or to utilise a smaller ‘window’. However, as the eating window became smaller, I also noticed the need to be more aware of the time and not forgetting to eat my first meal. I experienced such peace in my mind and body over food matters, already and it would only be 1pm, lunchtime!
The realisation that there was no craving or real hunger felt so good! (FYI, I noticed similar comments and feedback amongst the Facebook Community members.) As Janet says (see interview), each person has different issues relating to diet and weight loss. It may be the meals, the mindset or maintaining a sufficient level of exercise.
After going through one two-week round of the Colour Fast Re-Set, it definitely brought into clear focus that my biggest obstacle is my mindset – that was the part I felt somewhat challenged to incorporate most days. That said, I will definitely incorporate the Colour Fast Re-Set system more into my lifestyle using its simple breakfast ideas and more prebiotics and probiotics daily as well as keeping regular track of my eating window!
The Colour Fast Re-Set program is a well-rounded, all-in-one course which includes everything needed for mental and nutritional transformation along with very helpful daily food plans. Having tried it myself, I found it got me rather rapid results, I felt really free of cravings and hunger pangs. I’m also now much more aware of what and when I eat during the course of a normal day.
