Don't be too disappointed if you don't lose all ten pounds. Every body and metabolism is different. Do be careful, however, to follow the diet exactly. Don't eat less food than is recommended in your effort to lose weight as that will throw off the diet's chemistry.

Then at 7 p.m. when you can break your fast, drink another glass of cold water and wait 15 to 20 minutes. Eat another meal. Repeat through the evening, eating small meals until bedtime.

Where is the soup recipe? Yes, soup recipe is on day four article but you can always add your own healthy ingredients to make it more tasteful. Just stay away from heavy oil drizzles and premixed store formulas. Bone broth can also be added to this soup provided it’s homemade.
So how does it work? It’s very simple, if you are overweight look into mirror and ask yourself an easy question. What is the one nutrient that you have abundance of? Answer is simple, fats. Fat deposits under your skin makes you grow in size and weight. To lose weight you need to cut back on fatty foods. Now some people add to this simple logic and also cut down on carbohydrates, which I believe is the biggest mistake.
Not all carbohydrates are bad and this diet plan has plenty of carbs. When you cut down fats with carbs, you almost restrict yourself from all kinds of satisfying foods. Which leads to starving and that turns to feeling stressed all the time and not being able to carry out daily life activities. So to lose weight you just need to stay away from heavy fat intake as much as you can. 10 thing You Need to Know about Diet
