    How long is the “diet” for actually? How many protein shakes can we have per day? Are protein shakes also OK for days we’re not working out? Thanks for the answers 😉

      Hi Sisi, its best not to look at this as a diet. It is simply a method of eating that results in a healthier diet. So you could eat this way for as long as you like, or until you reach a target goal. Unlike other diets that plateau and give you only a certain time frame in which to get results, this plan should deliver consistent body conditioning.

      Protein shakes are good to have every day, as your muscles will be recovering 24/7. Protein shakes are good protein sources, but they come with unwanted additives like sweeteners. They are “supplements”, so use them when you cant get in another protein source, but I’d say 1 or 2 scoops of most proteins would be fine a day. :)

    Hi Patrick,

    Could you eat brown rice, raisins and sweetcorn on this diet?

      Yeah brown rice is ok, it just counts towards your carbohydrates, so eat it early, before/after training and in moderation. Raisins are ok in moderation too, and also count your carbohydrates. Raisins aren’t as friendly to your diet as apples and berries so are in the moderation pile. Sweetcorn as we all know doesn’t even break down 100%, so its a fine addition. Don’t eat it thinking about its nutritional value. generally speaking if its a fruit, veg or brown equivalent, its ok in moderation at the key times.
