Unfortunately, most of these foods lack valuable nutrients highly needed for the health of the body. Manufactures of these products have started to use artificial ingredients as a substitute for the natural ingredients and pack these foods with sugar and fat in order to boost their taste.

This diet is based on fruits like pear, citrus fruits and melon. Pear is rich in fiber, but low in calories and offers the feeling of fullness. Melon is high in antioxidants, low in calories and keeps good body hydration. On the other hand, all citrus fruits are packed with vitamin C that limits the formation of cellulite, low in calories, and fiber offering the needed satiety.

The presence of fiber will facilitate better food transit that will contribute to flat belly, and as well as limit the absorption of lipids and carbohydrates.

The intake of salt needs to be moderate as its excessive intake increases the release of dopamine, accountable for food pleasure making you want to eat more. Plus, it is a main cause of water retention which is also responsible for weight gain.
