What's on the Beverly Hills Diet Menu?
For the most part you eat fruit by itself and never mix it with proteins. This way the food is properly digested. For the first 10 days, only fruit is permitted. Then on day 11, you can only have carbohydrates. Not until day 19 can you actually eat protein.
People who like eating fatty foods and can't stand counting calories should enjoy this diet.
How successful is the Beverly Hills Diet?
The results of the Beverly Hills Diet are questionable. You can lose a lot of weight initially, but the rapid weight loss may end in health complications. The Beverly Hills Diet is also very low in protein and misses some essential vitamins and nutrients.
