When you switch to the Healthy Lives system for the first time, your body will need to get used to going without large amounts of sugar and starch. This is a big change, and effectively you will go into sugar rehab for a few weeks. During these weeks, we recommend you don’t eat yellow category foods and certainly not allow yourself any cheats.
If you have never gone without sugars and starches before, we recommend you only eat green category foods for at least two weeks. After that, you can slowly start to reintroduce yellow category foods and earned cheats to your diet. Those first two weeks you may also suffer rehab symptoms and we recommend to take it easy with your exercise efforts. We recommend you don’t use the app until the third week of your Healthy Lives journey.
If you feel a little overwhelmed at this point, don’t worry. Check out our Fresh Start program, especially designed to guide you through the difficult first weeks.
