Are you powerless in the face of a brownie, cupcake, or [insert sweet treat here]? Are you fed up (literally) with your cravings for chips, French fries, or [insert your favorite indulgence here]? You’re not alone. If you’re tired of the ups and downs of weight management and want a clean break from unhealthy eating, there’s a place and plan just for you. Now’s the time to reset your cravings and begin your journey to a happier, healthier life with USANA 5-Day RESET.
Welcome to the USANA® 5-Day RESET™ Weight Management Jumpstart
Transform Your Body and Your Life
The USANA 5-Day RESET weight management program makes it simple to cut down on calories while consuming a healthy diet with delicious, portion-controlled meal replacements and whole food snacks. Add exercise and healthy lifestyle habits to the mix, and you are well on the way to transforming your body and your life.
Break the Cravings Cycle
Cravings are caused by fluctuations in your biochemistry that may turn into an overwhelming need to eat certain foods. And the more of those craving-inducing foods you eat or beverages you drink, the more your body wants them. In no time at all, those bad habits can set in. It’s a vicious cycle, but it’s one you can break free from!
The 5-Day RESET is designed to help you end your destructive relationship with food and help you start successfully managing your weight. For five days, you’ll replace your trigger foods—especially simple carbohydrates—with healthier alternatives including delicious meal replacement shakes, to calm those cravings to help you begin to break your bad habits for good.
Part of the 5-Day RESET is eating healthy, whole food snacks. This will help you to rediscover how enjoyable a naturally sweet piece of fruit can be. Mother Nature provides us with a variety of delicious and nutritious snacks—probably more of a variety than you think.
The 5-Day RESET provides a plan to discover the healthy foods you’ve been missing and will be able to enjoy eating for the rest of your life. Instead of focusing on what you won’t be eating during the five days, focus on the variety of foods you can eat. Check out the snack examples in the 5-Day RESET Program Guide to help you get started.
Feel Satisfied and Steady Energy All Day
Is “hangry” a term you often use in describing your emotions? If you’re like so many who consume a steady diet of simple carbohydrates and too little protein and fiber, then you probably start getting pretty hangry around lunchtime followed by an energy crash mid-afternoon. This is because your food digested too quickly and sent your blood glucose levels on a rollercoaster, causing inconsistent and unsustained energy.
In addition to a variety of healthy, whole food snacks, you’ll also enjoy the indulgent flavors of NutrimealTM shakes—convenient meal replacement shakes formulated with a healthy ratio of complete protein, healthy fat, fiber, and complex carbohydrates. For healthy adults, the 5-Day RESET will help get you back to a normal baseline with foods that digest more slowly, allowing you to enjoy the added benefit of better sustained energy throughout the day.
Because you’ll be eating healthy, whole foods and our nutritionally balanced Nutrimeal shakes, you will have a good start to proper nutrition. By incorporating the AM and PM HealthPaks into your daily routine, you’ll also be able to fill in the gaps and ensure your body gets the optimal amounts of macro- and micronutrients it needs.
These daily packs contain the best-selling CellSentials® and USANA® MagneCal D™ to give you the ultimate foundation for cellular nutrition. Plus, the HealthPak-exclusive CellSentials Booster is made entirely with USANA’s proprietary InCelligence Technology® for advanced health support that meets your individual needs.*
RESET Your Digestive Health
Your digestive system is at the core of good health. It allows your body to metabolize and absorb the nutrients you eat. But aging and years of eating a less-than-ideal diet may have been feeding the wrong kind of bacteria in your belly. These bacteria could be impacting not only your cravings, but also your mood, which may make you eat less-than-healthy foods. The 5-Day RESET contains five daily doses of USANA® Probiotic to promote a healthy balance of bacteria for improved digestion and overall health.*
Tracking Your Success
Nothing is quite as motivating as seeing progress. Inside your 5-Day RESET is an easy-to-follow tracking card. Place it somewhere you can see it every day and check each box after you successfully complete the activity. The act of checking off those daily victories will help you meet your personal health and weight management goals.
Did you know that dehydration could show up as hunger? It’s true! Fend off feeling hungry and support your weight management efforts by making sure you drink enough water during the 5-Day RESET. One way to make sure you’re getting enough H2O is to always have a water bottle on hand. Try infusing your water with citrus and cucumbers to make it even more refreshing. Green tea is also a smart choice. Just make sure you don’t drink caffeine too late in the day…or better yet, get the decaffeinated variety. If you’re a coffee lover, a cup a day is allowed, but avoid any sweeteners and cream.
You Know What They Say About Variety
When you think about it, five days really isn’t a long period of time. But if you’re too focused on what you’re not eating, it’s easy to get bored or dissatisfied. This can make five days feel like forever. While you want to have a healthy attitude about food, that doesn’t mean eating shouldn’t be enjoyable. Make sure you plan plenty of variety into your snacks. You can also avoid flavor fatigue by mixing up your shakes—try adding natural almond, pistachio, or raspberry flavor extract for a delicious kick!

Exercise is a key part of, well, life. It helps you stay sharp, manage weight, age well, boost your mood…you name it, exercise is good for it. The thought of exercising for many who are overweight can feel daunting. Start wherever you are with your physical fitness. If you currently aren’t exercising at all, make a goal to walk every day. Inviting a partner on your walks will help you stay committed and give you some added moral support. If you are already physically active, keep it up. Be mindful of high-intensity workouts during the 5-Day RESET, as you will most likely be consuming fewer calories than you normally would. Set a goal to get at least 30 minutes of light or moderate exercise every day.
- Keeping a journal throughout the five days can help you identify and work through those feelings.
- Note the things that trigger your non-hunger desire to eat or drink.
- Make an action plan. (Try things like deep breathing, calling a good friend to catch up, walking in nature, or even just watching a funny video.)
Stress is a big trigger for overeating. So, managing your stress during this time will be important to your program success.
- Enlist the support of your friends and family.
- Create a playlist of upbeat music to keep you motivated and energized.
- Commit to getting enough quality sleep. Set a bedtime and power off your electronics an hour before.
- Try meditating in the evening or first thing when you wake up.
It can be challenging to take time for yourself, but even the smallest steps will lead to your success. Remember, this is a time to focus on yourself and your personal wellness. Learn from it and embrace the journey.
