Do include papaya, oranges and apples also as they will help your skin glow. Remember, the diet requires water intake necessarily of 8- 12 glasses or more to provide results. Do not starve yourself, if you are hungry go grab some fruits!

Day 4 is usually a challenge as ONLY bananas and milk is allowed to be consumed! You will have to consume eight bananas and four glasses of milk in the entire day.

The water intake have to increase to 15 glasses to combat the high amount of Uric Acid produced while digesting the tomatoes. You can substitute the meat with 6 egg whites also. Also, vegetarians can include high protein foods like mushroom and Rajma to the menu. Fruits can also be consumed as snack throughout the day. The protein intake and fruits will uplift your mood and give ample energy to hit the gym this day.
