Our advice

You must drink at least 1.5 or 2 liters of water a day to eliminate toxins, and forget about sweet and fizzy drinks, alcohol, bread, pasta, sweets, sugars and fats. We recommend that you weigh yourself on the first and fourth days, by which time you should have lost two to three pounds. If you've lost more, try supplementing with two rusks for breakfast, or for lunch with brown rice or wholemeal pasta.
There may be discomfort such as headaches, heavy diuresis, frequent bowel movements and increased sweating because the body is getting rid of harmful substances, so it is advisable to start the diet on the weekend.
Do not exceed 7 days of diet and always ask your doctor for advice. These types of diets are risky because in the following periods, after the diet is complete, you can gain weight faster and exceed the initial weight. This is why after the diet you should follow a maintenance phase, adding carbohydrates and proteins but also increasing the quantities of fruit and vegetables. For a better effect, combine aerobic physical activity with your diet: light jogging, cycling, swimming. Even 30 minutes a day of walking might be enough!
