What is it?
A four-week plan designed to plump up your skin and flush out toxins that cause premature ageing. The low-fat meals mean you’ll lose up to 10lb too so by the end of the diet, you should look fresh, glowing and youthful. You’re even allowed ice cream as a snack as long as it’s low fat!
How does it work?
The diet includes lots of ‘superfoods’ like oily fish and berries that flood your body with anti-oxidants and ‘good’ fats. These are easily digested and great for your heart and cholesterol levels. Snacking on fruit and nuts will boost your mineral and vitamin intake and drinking lots of water will flush out your system. The low-fat, low-calorie meal plans mean you’ll also lose weight.
People who feel they’re looking old or tired. People who eat too much junk food and need to detox.
What are the drawbacks?
The exotic fruits and fish can be expensive. Most of the dinners are chicken or fish based so vegetarians will struggle.
How to do it
For the next four weeks, choose a breakfast, lunch and dinner plus two
snacks a day from the lists below. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water
too, at least eight glasses a day. That’s what will make your skin glow
