THE DIET PLAN
We suggest following this for at least two weeks to see a difference, and three or four weeks to lose a good 3kg and get those healthy-eating principles under your belt. While it’s fine to swap days or repeat them, don’t swap individual meals, because each day is calculated to ensure you get a mix of food groups and nutrients. If you really hate an ingredient you can swap like for like (broccoli for spinach; trout for salmon). Aim to drink 2ℓ of no- or low-kilojoule fluid, such as water and herbal tea. Plus, take a calcium supplement to switch on your fat-burners – ideally, it should be one that is combined with vitamin D – such as Caltrate Plus, R117,95 for 30 tablets, Dis-chem – as this maximises absorption.
