Recovery and Rejuvenation Program
This program is primarily for patients who have been on a nutritional and/or weight loss program with me in the past. If you have been on a Dr. Dale program, and you now feel the need to Recover and Rejuvenate after a period of excess eating, and maybe a 3 – 10+ pound weight gain (i.e., following the holidays, or just a period of frequent "slip ups"), this is a simple, very specific, healthy way to quickly drop those extra pounds, replace some less-than-ideal habits and recover your well-being and vitality. I have done this with over a thousand patients and the results are predictable: you feel better and you get healthier.
The daily routine described on the back of this sheet can be done for one to three weeks, and if you follow it properly you should lose anywhere from 2 – 7 pounds the first week and 1 – 3 pounds each week thereafter! It is simple and timesaving for most people. You will most likely feel noticeably healthier within the first 3 – 5 days, and the cost of your rejuvenation product is usually no more—and quite possibly less than—the two meals you would normally be buying each day!
Some keys to getting the greatest benefits from your R+R Program:
Stick as closely to the program as possible. Before making any changes to the program, please check with me.
Ideally you should make an appointment with me before starting the program. This will allow us to clarify how you are feeling, what your weight is, any specific symptom changes you seek or goals you have and how long you plan to be on the program. I will also review your current supplement program and usually decrease what you are taking during the R+R program.
You may want to have a body composition analysis prior to starting.
You should make another appointment just before you reach the end of your program so I can interpret the results. This can be critical to maintaining the majority of your improvements for the long term. I will let you know how to reintroduce foods into your diet and what to watch for.
Upon Arising: Drink at least 12 ounces of water very first thing in the morning. Drink lots of water throughout the day, approximately ½ oz. per pound of body weight.
Breakfast: Drink one serving (2 scoops) of BioCleanse Plus or OptiCleanse GHI, plus one scoop of nanogreens (not necessary with OptiCleanse) mixed in 10-12 ounces of water. Shake it up and drink. See me to determine which product is best for you.
Between Breakfast and Lunch: Drink plenty of water, and if needed snack on either raw fruit or raw vegetables. If eating fruit, choose apples, pears, melons, citrus or berries. Organic fruits and vegetables are preferred. Your healthiest snack choice is a scoop of nanogreens in 8-10 ounces of water. This will fill you up and enhance the overall results of your program.
Lunch: The same as breakfast.
Between Lunch and Dinner: The same as between breakfast and lunch.
Dinner: Oh boy!!! You get to eat as large a meal as you want! This meal should consist of protein and veggies, lots of veggies. Your best choices are large salad, a large bowl of soup (see recipe), or steamed veggies with protein. Additionally, you should use olive or walnut oil on your veggies, or an olive oil-based salad dressing. Your vegetables can be eaten either raw or steamed, and you can eat as much as you like.
After Dinner: Drink more water. If you need a snack you can have another serving of fresh fruit. However, this should be at least 2 hours after your dinner.
Alternate Option: You do have the option of eating lunch instead of dinner and having your second shake at dinnertime.
Other Liquids: Lemon in water is fine anytime. Re: caffeine, continue to have green tea, black tea or coffee without milk or cream. You can have as much herb tea as you wish. Stevia is your best sweetener, or a tiny bit of honey.
If you experience any unusual symptoms while on this program, email me, call the office to speak with me, or come in as soon as possible. On very rare occasions we may have to make some modifications to your program.
Congratulations on taking such an important step in creating a healthier life!!!
