THE DIET PLAN

Woman & Home (South Africa) - - Competition -

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.
