WHO THE REVIVAL DIET (2.0) IS FOR…

Two years ago my husband created The Revival Diet – I’m starting it up again for a healthier 2017. Last year I was pregnant and gained over 50 pounds ala baby! Nothing helped me lose weight, stay energized and kept me motivated more than the Revival diet. So I’m starting it again and want to do it with you! 

Two years ago Parker and I announced the Revival Diet and already 30+ people participated and lost weight and felt better. This is really exciting for me, because we hope to build a community of people that can accomplish real tangible goals, lose weight, become healthier + stronger, and change their perspective on fitness.

What is the Revival Diet?

My husband developed this 12 week program to help me obtain the healthy lifestyle that is more of a dream to me. The thought of exercise and dieting is daunting. I tried Paleo for 2 weeks and ended up caving into a carb sugar overload. After doing Whole 30 I gained 15 pounds the following month. My whole life of dieting has been a pendulum swing. Trying fad diets that I would eventually fail at. I needed something that would transition me.

Parker broke down the diet into 3 periods of transitions:

1st 4 weeks: Carb Rotation

3 Days of healthy carbs with healthy amounts of protein – 4 days of low carb, high protein, high fat days. Dairy included.

Explanation: This tricks your body into switching energy systems and regulating insulin levels. It also has the effects of reducing calories, yet keeping metabolism at high levels. Especially with some tricks, which I will share along the way.

2nd 4 Weeks: Carb Depletion

6 Days of high fat, low carb, with flaxseed bread and other bread texture substitutes. 1 Day of healthy, whole grain carbohydrates.

Explanation: This starts to completely wean the body of sugar, in all of its forms. Lowering insulin response to the “cheat day”. Thereby storing less and less fat as you go along. The 1 day of carbs is added for sanity sake and to continue the metabolism increase.

3rd 4 Weeks: Carb Elimination

High fat low carb 7 days a week. 2 days a week with Ezekiel bread or equivalent (if it exists) in the morning and morning only.

Explanation: Your body at this point will be used to using fat a fuel source. Hopefully removing the withdrawal symptoms that come with cutting off carbs cold turkey.

Is the Revival Diet for me?

The revival diet is for anyone that is looking for a healthier lifestyle. Period. Parker is certified in nutrition + was a trainer at Equinox. He has several clients that he charges hundreds of dollars to create custom meal / fitness plans for (which is available if you’re interested). So look at this as a free trainer for 12 weeks.
Parker promises that if you FOLLOW the meal plans and at home workouts – You will lose anywhere from 10-30 lbs. in 12 weeks.
This plan is for you if:

* You are addicted to sugar
* You are addicted to carbs
* Dieting has failed
* Gyms are overwhelming
* You lack motivation
* You want to be healthier
* You don’t have “time” to be healthier

If ANY of those apply, I suggest signing up and joining us. Having a community around you (of non-health fanatics) will both help motivate you and keep you accountable.

How do I participate?

* Take a before picture (no need to post on social media haha – I’m definitely NOT)
* Comment on this post and let us know you are participating and share your Instagram handle if you have one so we can follow and encourage you.
* On Thursday I will post the shopping list for Monday, so purchase those items.
* Starting January 2nd – check weekly for your meal plan + workout. 
* On all social media – share with us your progress. Include #RevivalDiet
* Let us know what is working/not-working for you so we can help you 
* Follow Parker on Instagram for Revival Workouts, Meals, Tips and more 

Finally, we would love to get as many people to participate as possible. Parker is not making ANY money from this, or taking any endorsements. This is truly to help you become healthier and obtain tangible goals. So please post this image on your social media so we can help as many people as possible in 2017!

          I have a few questions on the shopping list. I am a long term missionary with Adventures currently in Cambodia (but will be launching the base next year in Nepal). Though i really have a great international store there are a few things I know I cant get. So what could be some great substiutes for these items (Whey protien, flax meal, smart carb tortillas, whole grain cereal, Salmon, Breakfast sausage). Also is it ok if things are not organic…. You both are such an inspiration and cant wait to see the results.

    I’m currently pregnant (7weeks), but my midwife and I both agree that I shouldnt gain much weight this pregnancy (I didnt lose as much weight as I should have from my last pregnancy). Would this be something I could still do to manage weight?

    • December 27, 2016

      Jessi Green

      I believe it should be fine – consult your midwife and doctor before starting any new diet

    Hi Jessi, I’d like to participate. I just have a question do I need to have both the Vitamix blender and the nutrabullet. I did not have any of those items so I was just wondering if I need to purchase both?

    • December 30, 2016

      Jessi Green

      You just need a blender – those are the best two I suggest

  • December 30, 2016

    Denise

    Hi Jessi, I would like to try this. Do I need to purchase both the Nutribullet and the Vitamix, I don’t have either. Are they necessary for the diet?

  • December 30, 2016

    Natalia

    Hi Jessi- love what you guys are doing! Question- after the program will there be any advice on how to make this a lifestyle-? would love to understand how to maintain my results. Also any subs for people who don’t do dairy? I can do some but a lot of dairy doesn’t sit well with me sometimes. Thanks so much! Natalia

    • December 30, 2016

      Jessi Green

      Yes there will be advice however I’d suggest getting a custom program from Parker that best suits your lifestyle – maybe even to start since the no dairy thing

        Natalia Torzsa

        Hi guys! I have some leftovers and is it ok if I eat them instead if making another dinner? I don’t want to throw stuff out – but I know the meal plans are specific. For example I have a decent amt of that eggplant parm- can I submit out for a dinner? Let me know. Thanks!!

        • January 10, 2017

          Jessi Green

          It’s best to use small portions for lunch – or replace a dinner

          • January 10, 2017

            Thank you! Very helpful.

    • January 1, 2017

      You can either replace it with dairy subs or remove it – or email parkerrichardgreen@gmail.com for a custom plan
