Try This 13-Day Diet And Lose Up To 30 Pounds

Do you have two weeks to give this a try?

The 13-day diet, otherwise known as The Danish Diet or The Copenhagen Diet, is not a traditional diet. This is not a crash diet that relies on starving you, making you lose all of your glycogen, and making you literally poop out your weight.

While this is a very calorie-restricted diet, this diet plays on your metabolism and is designed to actually give you results that stick afterwards. You have to follow this diet for the whole 13 days and you could lose anywhere from 10 to 40 pounds.

This diet can be harsh on your body. It is lacking in the dairy, whole grains, and fruits that are vital to a healthy body, but don’t fret. A simple multivitamin will help you stay healthy.
