The Metabolism Reset Diet: What is it?

The metabolism reset diet is based on physician Alan Christianson’s book of the same name. Dr Christianson promises that the diet helps you to lose weight naturally and repair your liver.

This specific diet is a 4-week fasting plan which substitutes two of your three meals a day with a protein shake.

The fasting diet recommends regular and fresh meals cooked from scratch. The diet also encourages unlimited vegetable snacks during the day such as carrot or celery sticks.

The Metabolism Reset Diet: Cost

On Save Money: Lose Weight, the 28-day diet cost around £240.

It’s certainly one of the cheapest fasting plans out there.
