Quick Start Checklist

How the Program Works: 3 Weekly Steps

The Total Gut Reset is super simple!

All you “have to do” is show up to your program portal each week to get your “next best step” to take along with nourishing your body with nutrient-dense (real) foods. We have tons of resources, support and guidance for every step of the way, and if you need ANYTHING or think of a resource you’d love…Just ask!

 Here’s your 3-steps to take each week.

Step 1: Complete Your Weekly Project + Build Your Custom Blueprint as We Go (find it in the “Start Here” folder).
Each week in your portal lesson, you’ll get ONE “project” to complete—a one-time challenge, assessment or at-home “lab test”—that will help you further create your Custom Blueprint plan as you go along. By the end of 90 days, you’ll have your own Custom Blueprint plan built for you—better understanding root causes and knowing exactly what your body needs to feel optimal. Download your Custom Blueprint Cheat Sheet template here. Fill this in each week as we go along.

Step 2: Adopt Your Weekly “Gut Love Habit” into Your Daily Life
Each week in the portal lesson, you’ll also get ONE “Gut Love Habit”—a simple lifestyle “game changer” to adopt into your DAILY life to propel your healing forward. Even if you lead a healthy lifestyle already, we’ll give you “next level” habits to bump ‘em up a notch.

Step 3: Nourish Your Gut Bugs with Nutrient-Dense (Anti-inflammatory) Foods
Eat “real food” that you (and your gut bugs) are meant to thrive upon. (Note: If it didn’t grow on the land, swim in the sea or roam the earth, it’s not real). All with 80/20 balance, of course (no perfection). 80% of the time, eat nutrient dense foods, 20% of the time, let life happen (like birthday cake on your birthday!).

Food (What to Eat)

  • Start with the 28 Day Gut Kickstart
    Find your Guide HERE along with tons of other resources. The first 28 days of your program dedicated to anti-inflammatory, gut-loving foods.

    • Why 28 days? The 28 Day Gut Kickstart is sort of like a muddy car going through a car wash. If a car is muddy and gets “dirt” on it…can you see the dirt? Nope! However, after the car gets washed and then it gets dirt on it…can you see the dirt? Yup!

  • Eat with an “abundance” mindset. What CAN I have (vs. what CAN’T I have?)

  • Each meal include:
    • Protein (organic, grass-fed, wild caught; 20-40 grams or 4-6 oz–the size of your hand; if you’re a plant-based eater, see your 28 Day Kickstart Guide)
    • Fiber (something green + something colorful; cooked veggies digest best): 6+ veggies/daily
    • Healthy fats (avocado, ghee, extra virgin olive oil, raw nuts/seeds, lard, tallow, coconut oil, coconut butter, fatty fish, skin-on chicken, fatty cuts pastured meats)

  • Drink half your bodyweight in ounces of CLEAN FILTERED WATER daily
    • Top sources: 
      • Get a Berkey
      • Mountain Valley Spring Water order
      • Glass-bottles to fill at local natural foods store
    • Get a Hydroflask or Glassic or other non-plastic water bottle
    • Sip, don’t gulp water with meals for best digestion. Otherwise, drink water throughout the day.

  • Avoid the top inflammatory foods for 28 days to give your gut a break: 
    • Alcohol
    • Beans and legumes (peanuts), unless you are on a plant-based diet (soak and dry beans) 
    • Coffee (1 cup quality coffee/day—local, organic and/or mycotoxin free like Purity or Kicking Horse)
    • Dairy (except ghee, grassfed butter)
    • Grains (corn, wheat, breads, pasta, etc.)
    • Industrial seed oils (canola, vegetable, grapeseed—most foods at restaurants cook in these)

    • Sugar & artificial sweeteners
    • Soy
  • Super (gut loving) foods to try
