It never allows starvation and deprivation of foods.
It is divided into 'three phases'.
- Phase 1
It lasts for about 14 days. This is the strictest phase as there's a strict regulation on what to consume. Carbohydrates are avoided and poultry products, fish, turkey, shellfish that usually eaten with vegetables, nuts, eggs and cheese are to be eaten but in moderation. Coffee and tea is allowed but taken in moderation.
- Phase 2
This phase is much easier than the first. It will last until the desired weight is achieved. The carbohydrates rich foods that were removed from the diet are reintroduced. You can eat brown rice and whole wheat bread but not a white bread.
- Phase 3
This is the phase where your body is already adjusted to start of a way of life that you will have to adopt for a lifetime.
