Breakfast like a king Lunch like a prince ... and Sup like a pauper.

Introduce healthy snacks in the second half of the day, such as nuts and fruit. Do not eat any Carbs after 6.30pm.

Weeks 1 to 12

Drink up! - but not fizzy pop.

Guidelines:
Drink as much water or herbal tea as you can. I think that green tea really speeds up metabolism, and you can get it in caffien free.

Fizzy drinks really bloaty the stomach, and the sugar just turns into fat - so avoid if poss.
