Limitations: You may make smart substitutions for some of the foods on your daily list, but generally, you can’t eat high-fat, high-carb foods.
Once you set a weight-loss goal, you start the actual diet. The diet is made up of seven phases that each last 4 days. Each phase has a different focus with lots of food choices, so you shouldn't get bored.
Does It Allow for Dietary Restrictions or Preferences?
The 4 Day Diet doesn’t say much about alcohol, other than it’s a temptation and you should practice the 80-20 rule. That means that if 80% of what you eat and drink is healthy and on the plan, and the remaining 20% is off the plan, you will still succeed in losing weight.
What Dr. Melinda Ratini Says:
This diet plan includes a very challenging exercise requirement that will definitely help with weight loss but may be too ambitious for someone who has been inactive or has a medical problem. Check with your doctor first.
The 4 Day Diet fosters weight loss by choosing foods that are low in salt, fat, and carbs. This type of diet promotes heart health by helping lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
