You need to take a brisk walk for at least 30 minutes a day.
To flush fat from the body, you’ll need to release the toxins. A fruit diet will help you detoxify the body as it speeds up the healing process and aids in weight loss. Include a lot of citrus fruits, apples, pears, oranges and watermelon in your diet. There are no restrictions on how much fruit you can consume, so eat until you are full.
Start your day with:
2 Apples and a Pomegranate
At the end of the day you should have consumed:
4 Apples, 4 Oranges, a Watermelon and 2 Pomegranates.
Note: Fruit juices are not allowed
Special Note: Drink at least 10 glasses of water.
