About The Plan

Our plan has 3 seperate phases Attack, Stabilize and maintain. It is Important that you follow all 3 phases for optimum weight loss.

* For the simplest version of the plan with no counting carbs or calories involved eat veg/salad mostly from the green section of allowed foods with moderate amounts(100-150g) from amber section avoid all from red section alongside your protein and dairy allowances.

Important: It is essential to take a good quality vitamin & Mineral supplement on all plan phases

Attack Phase 1 (weeks 1-3)

The first phase of any protein diet is crucial. It is when the diet is at its strictest. During this stage sugar reserves are being depleted and ketosis is taking place.

You will remain on phase one for 3 consecutive weeks. On every fourth week you will switch to the stabilize phase to give your body a much needed metabolism boost.

During this phase you will need to eat every 4-5 hours (5 times a day) to stabilize blood sugars.

  • 4 of our packs
  • 150g of lean protein*
  • 250g of allowed vegetables or salad*
  • 1 dairy allowance*
  • 1.5-3 litres of water

*From allowed food list

** You may replace your lean protein with a pack but it is essential you have your vegetable and dairy allowance

Stabilize (week 4)

Don't be tempted to skip this stage as it is super important as restricting calories can cause leptin, a hormone responsible for maintaining our energy balance and causing weight loss, to dwindlearound week four or 5. But temporarily upping calorie intake can re-up leptin production by nearly 30 percent for up to 24 hours . It's that quick leptin buzz that's responsible for boosting metabolism and getting the weight loss started again

*Please note you may show a gain after your week four as you are introducing more carbs however this is just your Glycogen stores refilling and once you are back on full plan and they are depleted again you will have lost weight.

During this phase you will need to eat every 4-5 hours (5 times a day) to stabilize blood sugars.
