A few small recommendations before starting …

– It must be borne in mind that this is a short-term diet, very effective when starting to fight overweight, but later it is recommended to follow a healthy and varied diet, of course …, also including these foods.

– It is recommended to drink at least two liters of water daily.

– Consume more exceptionally grapes and avocado , because they provide a greater number of sugars and calories .

– As a snack we can consume crudités .

The crudités are raw vegetables cut into sticks accompanied by yogurt sauce, light cream cheese spread or sauce with fine herbs. They can be made with cucumber, celery, leek, etc.
