If you want to lose more than 30 lbs you’ll need to finish the 40 day diet routine. Usually people tend to lose 1 to 1.5 pounds a day, and hence you need to decide on a realistic schedule. For example, in case you just need to lose 10-15 pounds, you don’t need to finish the 40 days program. In the phase two of the diet, you will be required to intake 500 calories everyday and lots of water.

It’s best to keep the fat content as low as possible. With fish you must be a little careful since some fishes like tuna, salmon, catfish and eel are pretty high in fat. Tipila, on the other hand, is rather lean and you could get it in most markets. Prior to cooking the meat make sure to strip it of any fat.
One vegetable can be consumed at lunch which can include tomatoes, spinach, lettuce, cabbages, cucumbers and asparagus. Most types of greens and lettuce are permitted. You can have one variety of bread stick or Melba toast and they can be easily found in a store. Nevertheless, make sure to avoid seasonings or cheese. Fruits could be one full apple, a handful of strawberries or 1/2 grape fruit.
