14 day apex diet reset

All the way back yesterday in the Day 3 Guide, I recommend a few superfoods that everyone can make use of. A decent diet is a matter of high nutrient density and making sure your meals are jam-packed with a wide array of macronutrients, vitamins and minerals.

If you’re unsure as to what I mean by that, head back to the beginning to get the full mission debriefing.

The Apex Diet Reset

So here are the foods that you should now try to incorporate over the next few days.

Superfoods
Steak
Beef Liver
Eggs
Salmon
Goats Cheese

And there are the rules right now.

Days 3-6 - Stage One
Bring Back The Superfoods – Eat a large portion (300+ calories) of one animal food each day
Cut The Carbs – Eliminate sugars
Wipe Out The Inflammatory Oils – Eliminate processed vegetable oils

To make things easier, I’m going to suggest a few of my favourite meal ideas for bringing superfoods into the diet. But I’ll also suggest some adjustments you can make to each recipe, because I intitally wrote them up for a keto diet. Meaning the carbs are going to be meagre, or not there at all. In Stage One of the reset, we’re not quite at complete carbohydrate elimination just yet. Sugars are out, but foods like rice and sweet potato are still allowed. You could opt to follow these recipes by the letter and shun the carbs, but if you’re coming in hot from a few straight decades of high carbohydrate eating, it’s going to be an absolute grind at times.

Salmon is a great source of essential Omega 3 fat, and actually feels like a treat. While I don’t bother with bacon anymore, there’s nothing wrong with a good cut of pork. Just try and find the ones that don’t flop around, that’s a telling sign they’re high in inflammatory Omega 6.

This is kind of cheating, because it adds in two superfoods, potentially three if you choose good quality cheese. But there’s no harm in skipping ahead to Stage Two.
