The Promise:
In 2 1/2 months you should lose 52 pounds.

The Rules:
•You must drink eight 8oz. glasses of water daily (64 oz. total per day).
•At any meal you may eat until you are full.
•You must eat the minimum listed at each meal. (yep, this diet list the minimum you should eat).
•You cannot eliminate anything from the diet. Especially the bacon at breakfast and the salads. You must eat the bacon and salads. These combinations of food burn the fat, omitting one part of the combination will cause the whole thing not to work.
•The grapefruit juice is important because it acts as a catalyst that starts the burning process. Don't add or reduce the amount of juice.
