British doctor Fiona Kirk is undoubtedly one of the nutritionists I follow most. Kirk is a real expert in metabolism and slimming according to the various ages of the woman.
Today we discover the latest version of his famous Fast Lane Diet , a quick but not drastic diet to lose a size in 15 days and maintain the results. With this diet it is easy to find out how many carbohydrates to eat to lose weight and when to eat them.
The scheme that I am illustrating allows us, as I said, to lose a size in 15 days, but it can then be followed even for a month, up to the maintenance plan. Hunger is kept at bay, it’s simple and customizable.
It makes you lose weight because it cuts down on snacks, focusing on three satisfying meals a day.
