Butter-drenched lobster? Fresh-baked rolls? You can eat both and still slim down — provided you don’t eat them together, claims The New Beverly Hills Diet .
An updated version of the одна тыща девятьсот восемьдесят один best-seller, the book is written by Judy Mazel, who ran a weight -loss cic Beverly Hills and died 2007. Mazel had no tring science or nutrition but centered her practice and book on concepts she used to lose 70 два pounds.
By retring your digestive system with a it-based diet for 30 5 days, then adheg to strictles about how youe carbohydrates, fat, and prot. Mazel says you’ll shed 10 to пятнадцать pounds 5 weeks and conue to lose weight until you be “sny.”
What You Can Eat
Plan on eag little more than it for the first 30 5 days. For example, on Day два you’ll eat nes, strawberries, and baked potatoes; on Day 17, only watermelon; and on Day 22, grapes or cherries, and a bedtime treat of your choog. There are a few “all prot” days, and a few days when you can eat whatever you like.
After the 35-dayduction phase is over, Mazel tells readers to eat wit the cones of four “consciousing” pciples:
- it must be eaten alone at all times. Ideally, you should be each day with an “enzymatic it”ch as ne, apricot, eapple, or persimmon. Wait an hour before eag different ds of it.
- Carbohydrates can beed with fat, but not prot.
- Most alcoholic beverages like beer and spirits are considered carbohydrates; red and white e should be treated as it. Champagne is “neutral” and can be eaten with any type of food.
Adheg to a mostly it diet — even with the occasional steak and sweet treat thrown for variety — for 5 weeks is a tall order, even for the most disciped dieter.
There are no portionggestions: Eat as much as you want, provided you follow theles above.
Artificial sweeteners. additives, non-dairy creamer, margae and other artificial butter products cause digestive problems, Mazel says, and should be avoided.
Level of Effort: High
If you can get to the second phase of the diet, you may d the unlimited portions and unlimited food choices liberag. But conlly choog meals and snacks that don’te carbohydrates and prot may prove challeng.
Limitations: If you don’t like it, or if you have a health problem,ch as diabetes. that affects your ability to come ctose high qntities, this diet isn’t for you.
Coog and shopg: Because the first phase revolves around fresh and dried it, shopg for and prepag food on this diet should be easy. the second phase, your ability toe only cert foods — for example, meatballs and spaghetti cannot be eaten together — could pose meal plang problems.
Packaged foods or meals: None required.
