HelaSonja's top tips

1.Patience needed. The weight may not drop off overnight. It may initially even go up, as the body is getting used to having plenty nourishment, especially if you are diet experienced.
2.If possible stick to it at least one month before giving up!
3.Try some light sport like walking right after getting up in the morning as this will help activate you and your metabolism.
4.If you suffer from GERD try drinking 1 glass of water with freshly squeezed lemon juice. I don't need medication any longer

About / History

Many people are greatly successful with this diet.

After having used the guidelines for a while I adjusted them, as breakfast was fine, but the other 2 meals left me hopelessly stuffed, and the recommended mixed meal for lunch made extremely sleepy.
