  1. I tried the 3-day fruit flush but it gets expensive and it takes me like a week of tying till I really get fed up with myself and go going hoe with it, even if I feel really l fat. Its just hard for me but delicious with all the fruit I get to eat. But it’s just hard not to eat a snack with actual substance and full flavor here and there when I get really hungry. I want to try this diet because it seems easier than that. is there any substitutes for some of the foods listed in recepies?

  2. This is very interesting, a diet with meat and other stuff. I always thought of a diet as more water/liquid based. I think I eat better that this diet on a regular basis but I think my problem is after reading this is having water retention and not eating enough protein. Do you this these problems would help me with that? I mostly eat lentils and vegetables but am not at the weight I would like to be at. I was looking for a dikon diet based on what I saw an episode from Dr.Oz. I’m no expert but now that I think about it, I guess you can base any diet on any vegetable though.(?) In fact I like the idea of this but I don’t really eat meat that much and sausage, especially bacon is meat that I hate. Can I use tofu instead and the dikon vegetable instead of cabbage? I’m my sure how correctly spell (dikon/dioukon)?

    1. This recipe has been taken from a cooking blog of my Polish friend. I named that chicken product sausage ’cause I couldn’t find a better name for it. In fact it is sth like a non-fat chicken ham or sth. The label says it has almost no fat, no carbs, and high in protein.
