TIFF HALL’S THREE HOUR RESET RULE
If the pandemic has messed up your good eating and exercise habits, it’s not game over for your fitness. Tiff Hall – top trainer from The Biggest Loser and creator of the online fitness program TIFFXO – has a trick for you…the 3-hour reset rule.
We’ve all been knocked off course a bit by this whole lockdown experience, so if your good food habits have gone out the window in recent months and over-eating has become a bit more common, don’t be too hard on yourself.
Whether it’s constant visits to the cookie jar while you’re home all day, frequent takeaway from the delivery app or comfort-eating ice cream straight from the tub, falling into temptation and slipping up doesn’t mean it’s game over for your health and fitness journey.
We’re all human, we all have cravings, and we all veer off the path every now and then. So instead of writing off the whole day, week, or month, why not just apply the 3-hour reset rule and get back on track?
The rule is simple: you literally reset your food intake (and your attitude) every three hours.
Under the 3-hour reset rule, we treat every meal as a new event – so if you do slip up and eat that (entire) cake, it doesn’t mean the whole day is a write-off. After you have allowed yourself to enjoy the treat (yep, you are allowed to enjoy it), you reset the day and start fresh.
We hear all the time from members who feel like a failure after giving in and having a chocolate bar or bag of chips – that the week is ruined and what’s the point of even trying anymore?! This all or nothing attitude is not sustainable, and it’s not a healthy way to live.
The 3-hour reset rule can help you stay focused, balanced and enjoy life.
