Revival Diet (2.0) Week 1

 

revivaldiet “You will not always “feel” like living healthy. You have to learn to be disciplined. Discipline begets discipline.”

— Parker Green


Welcome to The Revival Diet (2.0) Week 1

Things to do to participate:
1. Post a photo this week about WHY you are doing the Revival Diet on Instagram. Use the hashtag #RevivalDiet – Community is a BIG part of this. The more you share, the more others can encourage you.
2. Subscribe to this blog for weekly plan and follow Parker and Jessi on Instagram for workouts, tips, and encouragement. 
3. This weekend purchase the items from the shopping list and review the meal plan to know what’s ahead of you so you can plan in advance.
4. YOU CAN DO THIS! The first month is the hardest – let us know your struggles in the comments and Parker can help you adjust to succeed!

Please read this first to decide if #RevivalDiet is for you.

Tips of the week: Do your at home workout before your day starts. Parker said that if we say “I’ll do it later”… you won’t. So before you shower, do the workout. It should take 15 minutes. Also – PLAN AHEAD. Meal prep as much as you can for better success.

    You guys!!! This is so awesome. I want to participate but Hungry Blonde makes it kind of hard haha bc so many restaurants lined up. But I didn’t know there was a cheat day in there, maybe I’ll jump on later and squeeze all my cheats meals into one day hahah

      Jessi Green

      Aw thanks Gracie! Yay – also if you need to do meals at restaurants parker can help you order in alignment with the carb rotation

    This looks great! Question for Monday’s evening meal, is there a substitution for the rice? Could cauliflower rice work?

  • December 29, 2016

    Kellyk16@msn.com

    Looks great! If I am an eggs in the morning gal with half an avocado instead of cereal/oatmeal, how will that affect the overall meal plan?

    Any substitute for eggplant parm? I’m trying to do this with my husband and he is quite picky. Could I give him leftovers of another meal from week 1? Does trader joes sell peppadews?

    • December 29, 2016

      Jessi Green

      Yes you can sub with a different dinner and yes they do

    This looks great! Can I substitute kefir for the great yogurt?

  • January 1, 2017

    Casey

    Hey Jessi! My fiancé and I are going to do this together but we are wondering if this amount of food is for both guys and girls. Should I make my portions smaller or his bigger?? Thanks!!

    • January 1, 2017

      Jessi Green

      You can usually increase portions slightly for men but use your best judgement based on his size and goals – Parker

    Emma Misco

    Question?!? I was wondering if I could move the meals around in the week or if they are suppose to be eaten in a certain order? I just finished day one and it was amazing!!!!

    • January 2, 2017

      Emma Misco

      Or can I eat a meal twice if I have extra salmon?

      • January 2, 2017

        Emma Misco

        Or will we be eating some of the same foods next week… SO maybe I should just save it!?

        • January 2, 2017

          Jessi Green

          You can replace a meal with leftovers from the earlier days if you’d like

    So excited to start this today!! Just got back in town and going grocery shopping. What is your favorite flavor of the whey protein that you suggest?
    Also, when you did this and we’re living in NYC, how did you do the occasional meal out and make it fit into the reveal diet?

    • January 2, 2017

      Jessi Green

      I like vanilla protein because you can make other flavors with it – also for meals out I would either save them for cheat day or try to find something on the menu closest to the meal plan

    Lauren

    Hi I want to start week one tomorrow, however I do not eat dairy and I see there is a lot of dairy in the plan, is there a way to make it work with no dairy?

    • January 8, 2017

      Jessi Green

      Start with week one and either remove dairy or find the best substitute- otherwise to get the same effect you’ll need to contact parker for a custom meal plan. This is for the general public.
