It's unhealthy. We recommend sticking to light exercises like walking, maybe gentle yoga on the Reset.

how often [per year] is it healthy to do reset? or how long should one wait before starting reset again?

The idea of the reset is to clean out the toxins in your system and start your general eating with a fresh, healthy perspective, so if all goes well and you don't fall off the wagon, you won't need/want to do it that often. Rather, you'll just want to maintain.

However, I think you'd be fine to do it twice in a year, if you felt like it.

Denis,
Is there anyway to modify the reset to include working out? My husband is in the military and would like to be able to see some of the results, but won't be able to go three weeks without working.

thanks

I'm going to send this to Steve. I know he was experimenting with this, but we haven't really discussed it.

Yeah, I've been messing with some diet plans that are similar to Reset but geared towards tapering for an event, so you're still need to both exercise and keep your performance at the highest level while concurrently tapering your training and trying to lose (or at least not gain) a little weight to perform your best. I have not perfected it yet because, well, if you don't test in extreme sides of it you never know exactly where to push it.

Reset, however, is ALMOST a normal diet in terms of carbs, proteins, and fats. Certain weeks of it are. If you followed its main guidelines but ate enough calories to you'd be able to exercise. I've heard of a few people complete Reset using this general guideline. They've told me it went "fine" but I've yet to discuss it in depth--though no one has given me reason to think it needed in depth discussion. Depending on how you eat now there will likely be a performance adjustment as you get used to doing things without fuel sources chosen for many (simple carbs, caffeine, etc) but once used to it any Beachbody program should be fine (though probably impossible to gain much mass with Beast). Longer endurance sports training would be more challenging.
