Frequently Asked Questions

Got a question for us? We’re here to answer! These questions apply to most of our Svelte Programs and meal plans, if you have a specific question or don’t see your question, send us a message Here.

Depending on your previous diet, feeling lethargic and/or getting headaches within the detox period is normal! This is your body adjusting to a cleaner and less processed diet. You will feel these effects even more if you were consuming large amounts of caffeine, sugar and/or processed foods prior to starting the new meal plan. If you were a coffee drinker and stopped or are drinking less, it may also be caffeine-withdrawal! When you eat healthier, your body will slowly give off more sustained energy over time! I highly recommend drinking lots of water (at least 64 oz a day) to flush out those toxins and keep your body hydrated, which may help with the headaches and energy. You can also try a calming herbal tea! I recommend ginger, peppermint, or chamomile tea☕️

Please try and drink a minimum of 64 oz of water a day to ensure that you are hydrated. Depending on your activity level and heat exposure, this may vary.

Yes! You are human right 😉 HOWEVER, while coffee can boost your metabolism, caffeine can have a negative impact on your sleep. If you aren’t getting your 7-9 hours of sleep, this can have an impact on your hormones, which becomes a factor in blocking weight loss. I wouldn’t recommend it regularly, but if you do need to have it during the plan – please drink only 1-2 cups per day. Make sure it is unsweetened and black for the first 7 days. After a week, you can integrate stevia and 1-2 tablespoons of unsweetened non-dairy milk.

You may notice an increase in breakouts during the beginning periods of switching to a Svelte meal plan, particularly if you are not having regular bowel movements. The skin is the body’s largest organ and one of most prominent avenues that the body will use to get rid of waste products, especially if they’re not leaving fast enough through the colon or the kidneys (i.e. constipation). These symptoms will subside as your body releases toxins, usually within 2-3 days.

For some people, constipation can be just a temporary side-effect of the transition from a modern to a cleaner diet. In the first few weeks of any new diet, especially if that diet is a radical change from how you were eating before, it’s normal for your body to need some time to adjust.

During the first week or so, give your body a chance to adapt before you assume that your new Svelte meal plan is obviously unhealthy. If you’re very uncomfortable during this period, use a bulking laxative like Metamucil or psyllium husk or digestive teas to help you get through the initial adaptation more smoothly.

Make sure you are drinking at least 64 oz of water per day.

Yes, in the first couple of days of switching to a Svelte meal plan, digestive side effects include bloating, cramping, and flatulence. The degree of gas, bloating, and cramping you undergo during this time depends on the overall condition of your colon and how you ate prior to engaging in the new meal plan. To decrease symptoms, try consuming ginger root (tea or capsule).

As a result of using a Svelte meal plan and detoxifying your body, you might feel lethargic; however, this is normal. If you are new to exercise and our program is radically different than what you were previously doing, take caution with your exercises over the first 7 days and work with your doctor. Listen to your body. If you are up for more, then by all means, please do as many as you see fit and your doctor approves!

Try and do a least 1 Svelte Workout (this could be from One & Done, SvelteLife Series, or any other Svelte Program) on your regular exercise days. I love using them as a warm up or a workout “after-burner”.
