The Fast Track — two weeks per stage. You have a pretty smart gut, and that’s good news! You probably aren’t far from your health and weight goals, but you still need a little push to get you there. Even smart guts can achieve genius status! Even though you probably feel pretty good, you could be thinking even more clearly, have more energy, and finally get rid of those last few pounds. After The Prime, you’ll also be less susceptible to environmental influences that can tip you easily from feeling good to out of balance. You can move through the program pretty quickly.
The Moderate Track — three weeks per stage. You have an average-intelligence gut, but your gut could definitely be smarter, and it’s definitely impacting your brain function and energy level. On The Prime, your detox symptoms won’t be as severe as someone who has a higher score, so you can move along a bit faster.
The Gentle Track — four weeks per stage. Your gut definitely needs some work, but don’t feel bad; this is quite common. When I was first introduced to Ayurveda, while I suffered from migraine headaches, my score was in this range. Life in our modern world is particularly conducive to gut and brain degradation, and many of my patients fall into this category. I strongly suggest you move through the program in The Prime slowly.
