    Hi Stell,

    Salt has a tendency to slow down your metabolism therefore we wouldn’t advise that you add salt to any of your food.

  • Stell

    Please can you tell me if I am allowed to add a little salt to the boiled/ poached/ scrambled egg? Thank you

    I’m pleased to say that I lost 8lb last week (9st 7 – 8st 13lb). Can I continue on the diet for say a month ? as find it really easy. Like some of the other people, I lost all that weight by day 5, nothing after. Can you explainhow the diet works / is it food combination or what ?

    Hi EllieB
    I havent done yet, but I’m going to. It sounds daft, but I tend to lose weight on the “easiest” days!! So the steak and lamb chop days the weight falls off. On the fruit days, it just stops dead. So I’m gonna repeat days 1-4 and see what happens!

  • Slimming Solutions

    Hi Bella,

    The choice is entirely up to you.

    Do let us know how you get on : )

    Hi Amy,

    Fresh is always best as tinned can contain a lot of additives.

  • Slimming Solutions

    Hi Guest,

    Yes you can adapt the diet in this way.

  • Slimming Solutions

    Hi Chloe,

    Fresh is always best as tinned can contain a lot of additives.

    Hi Connie,

    Please be advised that no alcoholic drinks, milk, butter, oil or fat should be consumed.

    Hi Bob,

    The salad consists of lettuce, tomato and celery only. Only consume other salad items where stated.

  • Slimming Solutions

    Fresh would be best however if you cannot get hold of it tinned will be fine, please be advised however that tinned foods can contain a lot of additives.

  • EllieB

    I have exactly the same problem – did you just repeat the days 1-4?

  • Amy

    Are u allowed to use tinned grapefruit?

  • Guest

  • chloe

    Do the tomatoes have to be fresh or is it ok to have tinned? :)

  • Connie

    Is SKIMMED milk ok to have in tea?

  • M

  • Manzar Alam

    Can I also replace the grapefurit juice with orange juice for the 3 glass per day??

  • Bella

    Hi. Have done this a few times, and have got results every time. The only thing is though, that i lose all my weight in the first 4 days, and then i stop!! Would it be worth just repeating days 1 to 4?

  • Bob

    It says salad allowed but doesn’t include cucumber, however it’s required for day three :(

  • Laura

    Hi. Is tinned grapefruit in natural juice ok, rather than fresh grapefruit?

  • Slimming Solutions

    Hi M,

    We would advise against using the above however you can season with pepper and spices if you wish.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi. Is Worchester sauce allowed on the meat and can you have balsamic vinegar on the salad?
