The Three Week Body Reset is designed to help women slim down without being hungry.
It also aims to banish bloating, boost women’s energy and help them find peace with their approach to eating.
The reset promises no small meals, ingredients from ‘regular shops’, a focus on gut health and some education to set you up for long-term success.
‘I clicked on Bec’s page through an ad I saw on Instagram and saw some before and afters of women who had done the reset. I was massively impressed with their results,’ Sarah said.
‘When I read further into the plans and what they included, I was struck by how easy they seemed to be to follow and continue to follow.
‘I have literally tried so many fad diets and other meal plans and I’ve wasted so much money. But nothing ever worked.’

LUNCH: Leftovers from the night before, possibly a peanut satay bowl.

‘I was also reaching for the sugary treats a lot and wasn’t prioritising protein at all, hence I always felt hungry.’
