Newtrition is the answer in identifying and eating optimal foods for your body—all while losing weight. And if weight loss is not your goal, Newtrition is your guide for learning how to be all-around healthier. Newtrition works on a number of scientific principles, including the science behind Whole Body Reboot, as well as the effects of the hormone ghrelin, your Reboot Superfood Servings, and your Reboot-Q.
The science behind the foods Whole Body Reboot encourages the most, Peruvian superfoods, is based on the components within them. These components are in the form of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory phytochemicals, good heart-healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, and when regularly consumed you are receiving optimal nourishment. The Andeans have been consuming Peruvian superfoods for hundreds of years, showing lower rates of obesity and diabetes, metabolic syndrome, among others. The Andean people today are continuing to eat these superfoods while the rest of the world is beginning to take notice.
Improved heart health by providing protection against hypertension, heart
attacks, stroke, and high cholesterol. Omega-3s and anti-inflammatory fats can
lower triglycerides and blood pressure and monounsaturated fats help reduce
cholesterol and risk of heart disease.

Ghrelin is a hormone discovered about a decade ago with implications in our understanding of weight loss are nothing short of astounding. Its primary function is to drive appetite as a survival mechanism. So while we’ve all lived under the idea that dieting and weight loss is based on will power, new research shows that how we eat is often beyond our control. Because we’re ruled by a powerful hormone that exists to make us eat, we must learn to work with our physiology rather than fighting it. Not until we understand ghrelin and its processes can we eat in a manner that aids—not sabotages—weight loss. And unfortunately, many of our go-to strategies, like dieting, skipping meals, and exercising up a storm actually trigger ghrelin and hinder our ability to lose weight. With Whole Body Reboot’s approach, clients are often directed to eat more frequently, sometimes in quantities they may not even desire, or have been conditioned to reject. The reality is, only by feeding ghrelin can we stave off its appetite-inducing power. In addition to understanding what ghrelin is, it’s important to recognize the multitude of scenarios that can trigger it. For example, when we lose weight, ghrelin spikes. When we skip meals, ghrelin spikes. When we don’t have a proper balance of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, ghrelin spikes. And maybe most shockingly, when women exercise, ghrelin spikes. Imagine the reaction of most Americans upon learning that eating too little and relying on exercise can lead to weight gain!
Carbohydrate, Protein, and Fat
Unlike other recent diets, which advocated a lower allowance of carbohydrates, or high protein and low fat diet. Whole Body Reboot recommends a healthy range of macronutrients, one that ensures you’re getting enough protein, carbohydrates, fat and nutrients for proper brain, metabolic and bodily functions that will prevent muscle breakdown, curve appetite and provide enough energy throughout the day. It’s about customization. Whole Body Reboot will provide three different ranges of macronutrient distribution to effectively lose weight. When paired with the 7 Reboot Principles you will maximize your results.
Whole Body Reboot is not about calorie counting—it’s a way to lose weight and become all around healthier by incorporating optimally nutritious foods, such as superfoods, using weekly “Reboot Servings” from the various macronutrient groups, all of which can be tailored to each user’s tastes and diet preferences.
