The Zero Tolerance Diet Drop 7 Foods to Lose 7 Pounds in 7 Days

The Zero Tolerance Diet Drop 7 Foods to Lose 7 Pounds in 7 Days

Author: J.J. Virgin Format: Paperback Release Date: 31/01/2013

Most people believe the secret to being skinny is eating everything in moderation. We've heard it a million times. But this is not true. All foods are not created equal. The secret to losing weight is finding the foods that make you fat. The Zero Tolerance Diet is an elimination diet. You eliminate the seven foods most people are intolerant to for three weeks, while you eat the right proteins, fibres, fats and vegetables. After three weeks, you reintroduce foods, one at a time, to see which foods your body can tolerate. It's that simple. Most people lose 5-10 pounds in the first week! Eating in moderation and counting calories does not work. This is why the average 30-year-old, who consumes a moderate caloric diet while eating the wrong foods, will be ten pounds heavier by the time they reach 40. Different foods work better for different people. JJ Virgin is close to 50 years old and puts most younger women's bodies to shame. And so do her thousands of clients. With the right guidance you can too. Fat is not your fate.
