Hot Summer Diets

Japanese Banana Diet

-Eat a sensible lunch and dinner
-Only drink water
-Don’t eat after 8:00 PM

Eco-Adkins Diet

This is an updated version of the Atkins diet.

Instead of consuming large amounts of steaks, eggs and cheese, this diet recommends getting your protein from soy and nuts.

-Drink 3 tsp of apple cider vinegar before every meal.
