These fruits are mainly exotic (pineapple, grapefruit, watermelon and papaya) because they would be filled with virtues “fat burning” (argument however scientifically unfounded). Today, all fruits are proposed, with the exception of bananas, considered too sweet.
Some allow a few vegetables. After this intensive treatment of fruit, must gradually reintroduce, 1-2 times a week only, a little bread, starchy foods and meat, then 1-2 meals a week.
