Q: I am pregnant/breastfeeding/have a health issue – should I be doing this?

A: If you are pregnant or you’ve recently had a baby, congratulations! I’m seriously excited for you … but I don’t want you on this Reboot (not yet, anyway!) Your body is in a different place right now, so it needs its own kind of special treatment. Same goes for any specific health issue. I’m not here to tell you what to do, and I don’t know what your issues are, but either speak to your doctor/health professional, or drop me an email and we’ll see what seems right. Be prepared though: if I don’t think it’s a good idea, I’ll be sure to tell you.

 

Q: I really want to join in, but will be away for part of the time. Can I still do it?

A: Heck yes!  When you enrol you’ll get all the info you need, so just save the emails that you get from me and read them when you start. That said, part of the fun of this Reboot is the support you get from all the other fab people in the group, so if you can do it at the same time as the rest of us, you’ll really feel the benefit of that community.

 

Q: I have fussy kids/a grumpy husband/a busy job – can I still Reboot?

A: YES YES YES! I am a mum with kids who like different foods, my hubby isn’t grumpy at all, but our meals have to account for the fact that he comes home a bit later than  our meal time, and I am busy too!  There are loads of ways of making sure you can Reboot and still feed your family, and enjoy your life.  It will take a little forward planning on your part but that’s why I created the Reboot Planner – so you can figure out how Rebooting will fit into your week.

 

Q: I’ve never Rebooted before.  Is it hard?

A: Yes and no.  The key to a Reboot is being prepared.  When you are Rebooting, you can’t just pop into the shops and grab a sarnie for lunch.  You need to know what you are going to have, because you’ll have to make it in advance.  This can be a challenge if you’re not used to it.  But because it’s only five days, if you do a bit of planning the weekend before you start, it’ll be easy peasey! And because there are also no fasting or juice-only days, you get to eat plenty of food, so it’s not hard on your appetite either.

 

“The good thing about the reboot is it helped me get back on track, and I loved seeing everyone’s meals and ideas.” Clare, Bristol.

 

Q: I’m a bit of a fussy eater.  Will I still be able to do it?

A: That depends entirely on you.  If you point blank refuse to eat vegetables, for example, you’ll end up hungry, grumpy and you’ll hate me – I don’t want that, and I’m pretty sure you don’t either.  If you feel that finally it’s time to get over the fussiness, and you are up for the challenge of trying out different foods., then YES! Join in. Give it a go. There is no better time to try out new foods when you are restricted by what you can have. Only you can make this decision though. All I can say is that if my sister (one of the fussiest people around) can do my Reboot then I’m pretty sure you can too.

 

“I found the handy recipes a great base. Some days I followed it exactly; others I changed it and added my own stuff.

 

Q: I am on a special diet: gluten free/paleo/vegan/anti-candida/allergy avoidance etc.  Can I still do your Reboot?

A: Great point, and very well made.  The answer is generally going to be a ‘yes’.  Rebooting is a very useful thing to do no matter what kind of diet you are on.  For example, coeliacs, who have to avoid gluten, are quite often prescribed gluten free bread, which can contain quite a lot of additives.  Taking a break from those for a little while can only be a good thing.  Likewise, if you are eating paleo, you may find that you eat quite a bit of meat.  Again, nowt wrong with that, but this Reboot gives your body a nice break from the hardcore digestion required for meat, which means you get to re-focus that digestive energy for a few days. If you are on some other kind of diet, and want to know if it would work with this Reboot, drop me a line and we can have a ponder.

 

Q: How do I go about enrolling?

A: Sign up below and check your inbox/junk mail folder to find the email from me which you have to open so that you can confirm you are in. Once that has gone through, you’ll get a lovely email from me containing a direct link to the Five Day Reboot information which is in a PDF file. This link will remain active for 7 days only so you’ll have to click and save it to your computer RIGHT AWAY.  Once you have downloaded it, you can keep it for as long as you like.  You might like to print it off so you can make notes if that’s how you roll. If you don’t download the document, you may end up having to sign up all over again, so please do make sure you download the information as soon as you pay.

 

“I have woken up brighter in the morning, I am sleeping better and I have lost a few pounds (which was not my intention!). Good one Claire … it was easy to follow and not difficult like others I have embarked on.

 

Q: I want to do a super-mega-hardcore detox because I will be doing an extreme/endurance event this year.  Is your Reboot man enough for me?

A: I strongly recommend Rebooting for anyone thinking of pushing their limits in a sporting kind of way so they can get the very best out of their fitness. This Reboot has options for taking it to the max – and if you want more, just ask!

 

Q: What if I have loads of questions once I receive the info?

A: No trouble. You can ask via Twitter or Facebook or just send me an email. If you are happy for me to do so, I may answer the question publicly on social media so that everyone can benefit from the answer, but don’t worry, I’ll keep your name out of it so you can stay all mysterious and undercover.





“With all the advice, constant backing, and even menu guidance from Claire I would highly recommend this to anyone. My only advice, and yes Claire did use these words…Preparation is key.”
