INSTRUCTIONS:

IMPORTANT


STAY ON THIS DIET 12 DAYS AND STOP FOR 2 DAYS
Works out great to start on a Monday because you will
have every other weekend off of the diet.


1. At any meal you may eat until you are full. You must eat the minimum listed at each meal.

2. Do not eliminate anything from the diet, especially don't skip the bacon at breakfast or omit salads.
It is the combination of foods that burn fat cells.

3. The grapefruit is important because it acts as a catalyst that starts the burning process.

4. Cut down on coffee, it affects the insulin balance that hinders the burning process.
Try to limit your intake to one cup at mealtime.

5. Don't eat between meals, if you eat the combination of food suggested, you will not get hungry.

6. The diet eliminates most sugars and starches, but does not eliminate fat because fat does not form fat,
it helps burn it. Feel free to fry your food in butter and use butter generously on vegetables.

7. Do not eat desserts, breads, white vegetables, or sweet potatoes.

8. There may be no weight loss in the first 4 days, but you may lose 5 pounds on the 5th day.
You may lose 1 and 1/2 pounds every two days until you reach your goal.


YOU MAY NOT HAVE:
White onions, potatoes, corn, starchy vegetables, bread, noodles, rice, potato chips, pretzels, or fruit.

YOU MAY HAVE:
Red onions, bell peppers, radishes, broccoli, cucumbers, green onions, leaf spinach, cabbage, tomatoes, green beans, lettuce, chili (no beans) mayonnaise, any cheese, hot dogs, cole slaw, regular salad dressing, green vegetables, 1tsp nuts, dill or bread and butter pickles.
