more energy than when you began, if you do not cheat. After being on
the diet for several days, you will find that your bowel movements
have changed. Eat a cup of bran or fiber. Although you can have

caffeine after the third day.

during the seven days. Eat as much as you wish. Remember the more
you eat, the more you will lose. You can eat broiled, boiled or
baked chicken instead of the beef. Absolutely no skin on the
chicken. If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for the beef
