Cut Sugar and Carb Cravings in 30 Days And Feel Your Best
(Without Spending a Fortune on Food, Slaving Over Meal Prep for Hours, or Feeling Deprived)
If you’re someone who is on the path to financial independence, or already there, and you want more control over your sugar and carb cravings, more energy, and less risk of costly disease in the future, then you probably already know that you need to reduce your intake of processed junk and eat real, whole foods.
No need to convince you of eating out less and cooking more at home―you’re already doing that.
You already KNOW that the cost of healthcare is skyrocketing.
You’re probably also heard that the number of people with chronic disease is rapidly increasing, and that by 2025, chronic diseases will affect an estimated 164 million Americans – nearly half (49%) of the population¹―and that many are preventable or can be alleviated with diet and lifestyle.
The 30-Day Real Food Reset is currently open for enrollment until 11:59 PM on April 1.
Course dates: April 9, 2020 ― May 14, 2020
What the Heck is a Real Food Reset?
The 30-Day Real Food Reset is a clean eating challenge for people who want to cut the sugar and carb cravings and get healthy, for good―without spending a fortune.
Here’s how it works: you’re in a small group of 4-10 people who meet once a week for six weeks over a live Zoom video call.
Built into the course is a 30-day sugar detox, a private Facebook group, daily “What to Expect” emails with 1-minute videos, printable cheat sheets, recipes, and shopping lists―all while learning how to be healthy and reduce your risk of future disease.
By the end, most participants say they feel better than they ever have, with:
- No sugar or carb cravings
- Increased energy
- A sense of wellbeing and calm
- Increased motivation
- Improved clarity of thought
- Decreased inflammation
- Restful sleep
- Clear skin
- Reduced body fat
- Feeling “lighter”
- A palate newly sensitized for natural sweetness in foods
What’s the catch?
Well, there are several, actually.
Why the Reset Probably is NOT For You
You’ll most likely spend more than the oft-quoted $2 per person per meal (the holy grail in the FI community) on higher-quality meats, fats, and vegetables.
You’ll have to spend time planning meals, shopping, and cooking.
“Carb flu” for the first 1-2 weeks can be anything from mildly annoying to downright miserable. Your entire household will be affected during the stage when you feel lethargic and moody, and when you are cooking and eating totally separate food.
It takes up time: an hour-long live class once each week for 6 weeks. Plus, the time for reading the daily emails, watching videos, and posting in the Facebook group.
There’s a good chance you’ll miss out on your favorite treats during a holiday or event (The Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Christmas, your spouse’s birthday…)
You’ll have to give up your nightly glass of wine that helps you wind down and relax after a long day.
It might be too restrictive for you. Many of your current food staples and nearly everything currently in your pantry will suddenly be off the table (literally).
Your friends, family, and coworkers might scoff at what you’re doing, tell you you’re crazy, try to get you to “just have this one thing”, or even actively sabotage you.
You’ll be surrounded by a minefield of temptations: your kids’ leftover tortilla chips and chocolate milk, the chips, snacks, and alcohol aisles in the grocery store, food porn on social media, free pizza and donuts in the work break room, and ads for Hot Pockets on television.
It might challenge your assumptions about what’s healthy for you and good for the planet.
But, most of all… it’s probably too hard of a commitment, and isn’t going to fit into your current lifestyle, budget, or obligations.
But, If You WERE Curious…
You could fill out this printable symptom quiz right now.
If your symptom score were to be a little higher than you’d like, perhaps you’d like to consider doing something about it.
PS. This is the exact quiz we have our participants complete before and after the Reset.
How Would You Know If This is Right For You?
Maybe you feel controlled by sugar and carb cravings. You constantly feel tired and need to eat every 2-3 hours―six small meals a day is your norm. You often feel hangry (hungry + angry).
You want boundless motivation, mental focus, and drive to be wildly productive with projects that excite you, sustained energy to keep up with the demands of running a household, and deep, restful sleep that recharges you to do it all again the next day.
Or perhaps you’ve thought about trying keto or doing some sort of clean eating program, like a Whole30 or sugar detox, and you want to learn proven, replicable systems for shopping and cooking that will save you time, money, and effort.
If any of these sound like how you’re feeling, the Real Food Reset could be a good option for you.
Okay, maybe you might want to do this. Maybe.
But who even are John and Rosemary, though?
We’re glad you asked.
You can read more about us, but the nutshell version is that we are two Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners who found the FI community in 2017 while we were paying off $66K of debt. We binge read and listened to podcasts on financial independence, and since then, have attended Camp Mustache, FinCon, two Playing with Fire screenings. Rosemary volunteers with moderating the ChooseFI Academy forum, we’ve attended ChooseFI local group meetups all over the Pacific Northwest, and we leading our local ChooseFI group here in the Tri-Cities, WA.
Between us, in the last 10 years, we’ve resolved (or in some cases, hugely improved) sugar and food addiction, skin issues like acne and rosacea, headaches, depression and anxiety, fatigue, panic attacks, painful digestion, alternating constipation and diarrhea, hormonal issues, debilitating menstrual cycles, poor sleep, and lost a ton of body fat―all by changing how we ate.
Unlike how it was for us, you don’t have to do this alone. With our guidance and the support of their cohorts, our proven methods have helped dozens of people kick the sugar and carb cravings, once and for all. Even if right now it seems like that’s not possible for you, we promise you―it is.
Wait―This Isn’t [Fill in the Blank], Is It?
Here’s what our Reset absolutely is NOT:
- A “diet” that involves restriction, constantly feeling hungry, calorie-counting, scale-watching, point-counting, or low-fat anything.
- Some sort of multi-level marketing scam.
- A juice fast or “cleanse” that involves pooping your brains out. 💩
- A plant-based way of eating. We believe animal products are vital for good health, and that responsible sourcing is good for both us and the planet.
- A quick fix or magic pill. We want you to build lasting habits, not just lose 10 pounds and go back to the way it was.
- Requiring expensive pills, powders, potions, or “superfood shakes” of dubious efficacy.
How Can You Know if This Will Work for You?
Here’s what other previously skeptical people 😉 have had to say about our course.
I had been at a standstill with my weight loss for over a month. Bam!! This program kicked it. If things keep going I won’t have anything to wear. I can’t tell you how many people have stopped me and truly told me how great I look. Then tell me again. Once to the point I started to tear up. Thank you for changing my life. I love that I am full of energy and never hungry.
Sara NicholsRichland, Washington
This is a very worthwhile programme which has changed the way we eat and think about food. And Rosemary is right: the food is delicious and you never go hungry!
Julia AlbrechtDunedin, New Zealand
Only one month, and we now have new lifelong habits. The class was well worth the money. I wish everyone could try it―just to experience the difference. And although it not a weight loss program, I did lose 5 pounds―without ever feeling hungry. I highly recommend the Reset. The class is temporary, but the resulting friendships are not.
Gretchen SewartRichland, Washington
I was delighted that my palate has become so sensitized to sugar, and I want it to stay that way. I think I may have gone far in breaking my addiction to sugar, and I am SO GLAD!

It’s a pretty hefty sum: $697.
And there’s a reason for that. You’re paying for more than just a class―you’re getting the health transformation of your life.
You’re getting 20+ years of nutrition and clinical expertise with your instructors, giving you targeted recommendations customized to you and your needs, and you’re getting friendships for life with the others who have been in the trenches with you.
We charge a lot, but we believe in the program wholeheartedly because we know it works. And we want your investment to help make you committed enough to stick with it, even when it gets hard, and come though on the other side.
Our 100% Money-Back Guarantee
If at the end of the 30 days you haven’t made any improvement―meaning, your before and after Symptom Quizzes look the same―and you can show us that you have eaten completely on-plan during those 30 days (you still have to do the work, duh), then we’ll refund you your money 100%.
As you can see, we’re totally confident in our method. This stuff works because it’s how your body is wired to work. It’s just science. 👩🏻🔬

- Check the dates and times of the class to make sure you don’t have any scheduling conflicts like travel.
- Note which major holidays or events like birthdays cover the dates of the class. Make sure you are okay with a change in food for those days.
