Reboot Your Life
Doing a Reboot helps your body return to the healthy fat-burning machine it was designed to be!
Rebooting your metabolism is about making food choices that help support the body’s normal energy-producing, fat-burning, muscle-building functions. Our bodies were designed to burn fat as our primary source of fuel, but our modern diets have greatly compromised that function resulting in the escalating numbers of overweight/obese individuals. And these numbers continue to grow in spite of a robust, sixty billion dollar a year diet and weight loss industry. It almost seems like the more we diet, the fatter and sicker we become. In fact, over 95% of everyone who loses weight by dieting, gains some, all, or even more weight back.
That’s where an Evolv Reboot comes in. Science has finally broken the code on this rebound phenomenon — it turns out that fat loss has as much or more to do with hormones than calories-in, calories-out. Hormones are signaling molecules that trigger specific cells into action. They regulate virtually every aspect of your body’s day-to-day functioning. In the case of fat-burning, your body makes a hormone that regulates when and how much fat should be converted to energy. Doing a Reboot is a natural, delicious, and convenient way to do this, and it starts with just a 28 day commitment to addressing nutrition.
Leptin is the “fat-burning hormone,” and regulates metabolism and hunger signals, too.
When leptin works as it’s supposed to, your body will burn excess accumulated fat in an efficient manner.
Over-consumption of sugar, grains, starches, processed foods, and other health factors can cause chronic inflammation in the body that can dramatically inhibit the brain’s ability to read leptin levels in the blood correctly. This inability to “see” leptin, known as “leptin resistance” or “leptin insensitivity,” throws your fat-burning functions off course, resulting in the body relentlessly reserving excess fat, even when obese or overweight.
There is no medication that can correct leptin resistance, and in fact the typical weight loss diet can actually make this problem worse. This explains why the diet industry has failed so miserably at offering sustainable solutions for long-term fat loss.
The “Reboot Your Life” Food Plan was developed to help shift your metabolism back to the efficient, fat-burning state it was designed for.
The plan is divided into three phases: the initial 2 phases—”Reboot” and “Impact”—are incorporated into our 28-day program that can be repeated as many times as you need to reach your goals. The 3rd phase, “Maintain,” follows once you reach your goals, and is meant to be repeated ongoing to help support leptin function and maintain healthy levels of body fat. In all three phases, the Evolv Lifebar offers the most cost-effective and convenient solution for meeting the nutritional goals of the Reboot Program by providing the body with the right combination of fats, healthy carbohydrates, fiber and more to promote the body’s long-term health, that is easy to take with you anywhere you go.

Phase 1 — The Reboot Phase
Meal Program for Days 1 – 28
Help your body to reduce inflammatory markers, restore your gut health, reactivate your immune system, and replenish your cells in order to help the body shift your metabolism in the Reboot Phase. There are specific foods to eat and avoid during this phase to best help accomplish these goals, and always remember this is a program, NOT a diet. If you need to adapt it slightly to suit your body’s unique needs such as adding or eliminating snacks, shifting the order of meals so your healthy meal is your breakfast instead and the like, FEEL FREE! The key to success is sustainability, and everyone’s needs and goals are going to be different.

There are 5 food rules during the Reboot Phase 1:
- Eat 2 or more LifeBars per day *
- Don’t Skip Meals (feel free to adapt the amount and number of your snacks to suit your appetite)
- Fat: Increase your intake of healthy fats
- Protein: Moderate your intake – on average 4-6 ounces per meal (Too much protein will also convert to sugar)
- Carbohydrates: Eliminate all refined sugars (table sugar, powdered sugar, brown sugar, high fructose corn syrup, molasses, maltodextrin, etc.), refined grains (white flour, wheat flour, white rice, etc.), alcoholic beverages, and most fruits (see approved list below), as they promote a sugar-burning metabolism and can contribute to inflammation.
- Healthy Meals & Snacks**: Use the food guidelines to pick a Protein, a Fat, and a Vegetable to create a meal or snack tailored to your taste. Subscribe to our Reboot Support Emails & join our Reboot Facebook group for some great Reboot-friendly recipe ideas!
*Make sure you drink a 16 oz Bottle of Water with each LifeBar.
**Approved fruits and vegetables can be eaten at any meal or as a snack

After you’ve completed your 28 day Phase 1 Reboot, you can continue to adhere to the Reboot Food Program or you can shift into the broader Impact Phase food guidelines. With either choice, you can now incorporate “vacation meals” into your weekly eating program.
Vacation Meal Guidelines
- Eat up to 2 Vacation Meals per week. (It often works best to combine them into the same day.)
- Eat the foods you want: This is not a cheat meal, so don’t feel guilty for eating the foods you really want! This is your opportunity to enjoy them in a healthy way — in moderation!
- Don’t overdo it; eating to the point of misery is not the purpose.
- Don’t skip a meal in order to “prepare yourself” for your vacation meal.
- Don’t keep left-overs. They’ll just tempt you in the days that follow.
- Have fun! This is your vacation, relish every bite and then stop when you’re full.

The Reboot Kit
Lose Fat For Good — Get Healthier, Make an Impact.
The Impact Phase comes after the Reboot Phase. This phase is designed to help perpetuate your new fat-burning lifestyle. The Impact Phase expands the list of foods you can eat and even includes optional “vacation” meals. Vacation meals allow you to eat any food you want or crave and may serve the helpful function of helping you overcome the perception of having to give up your favorite foods. You can still have your favorite ice cream or pizza, just at intervals that get your fat burning hormones to work for you rather than against you.
Please note: Many find that, after eating clean and feeling great for a few days or weeks, their vacation meals leave them feeling pretty awful. They even discover they no longer crave those “treat” foods because they are now in a position to notice their impact on the body and on how they feel. If you find that is the case for you, you are welcome to minimize or skip vacation meals during your Impact Phase and beyond. Just know they are there for you if you want them! Our program helps educate you on how to stay healthy even while indulging (in moderation!).
