Dr. Ian Smith’s 4-day detox diet: lose 5 kg like this

And let’s go back to Dr. Ian Smith , doctor, trainer and bestselling author I already talked about in this article, showing you his seven-day detox method based on small meals.

His 4-day detox diet is famous , a fast regimen that includes steps: the first 4 days of actual detox, a detoxifying period to immediately lose the first pounds and deflate (induction method). Then the diet expands to more foods, moving on to the second phase of 4 days (transition method) and a third phase in which you adjust with more snacks and a few snacks, and which is valid for losing weight slowly, without sacrifices.

The next 3 steps add more food. In all, up to 5 kilos are lost.

Dr. Smith’s 4-day detox diet is simple to do . A series of foods are listed that can then be freely associated with each other, the important thing is to eat only those in 24 hours.
Let’s see step by step how to do this 4-day detox diet.
