The Revive Calendar

In case you want to follow along with my journey. If you are interested in actually doing this; I’d recommend actually getting the book. There are tons of helpful lists, recipes, and exercises that I think are essential to the process.

This outline is very bare-bones, there is often other stuff going on for each of these days. I have coded them for diet stuff (my main concern), body mobility stuff, medical/chemical stuff, and hippie-dippie stuff. These are general categories, and there is some overlap, fyi.

Also, these things aren’t static. Once you eliminate something, it’s eliminated for the whole rest of the remaining time. Exercises are repeated and there is constant checking in.

  • Day 1: Eliminate added sugars (small amounts of agave, honey, maple syrup ok)
  • Day 2: Start smoothies for breakfast, Stop watching TV in bed
  • Day 3: Try the “Ultimate Neck and Shoulder Release” before bed (involves tennis balls)
