Once you learn to live on Meat, Fruit and Vegetables – both the weight loss phase and maintenance are no-brainers. The secret to weight loss it to limit your Meat portion to no more an 8 ounces per feeding. On maintenance, you can eat up to a pound of meat per feeding and still maintain. Also on maintenance, the diet is particularly satisfying because you can have 2-3 pieces of fruit every meal. On weight loss and maintenance, if you are hungry in the morning, you can have an addtional serving of Fruit and 2 cups of Vegetables for breakfast. After 3 days the diet is particularly easy to follow without cheating, because sweet and starch cravings almost completely disappear. Remember to drink your gallon (128 ounces) of non-caloric liquid (water, coffee, tea, diet pop) every day. You need this much fluid to flush out the fat you are burning.
