Even though the menu may seem simple and tempting, we advise you to consult your doctor before starting the program. There are many people, in hopes of losing weight, forget that taking proper care of their health is more important than looking thin. As we all have recommended calorie intake, disturbing this balance may not give positive results for some people. Which is why, the doctor's approval is essential.
