The first two weeks should be severely limit carbohydrate intake to 20 USD (normal for a healthy human of 400 - 450 g carbohydrate per day). That is invited to two consecutive weeks have mostly meat, fish, eggs, cheese, drink the broth (it has no units). This menu is added to the $ 20 carbohydrates, it will be a choice:
