The purpose of this diet is to make your body think that times are hard and you don’t have access to as many nutritious foods as you normally do, while reducing testosterone levels by lowering protein and fat intake and reducing the amount of phytonutrients in the diet that help to keep testosterone levels elevated. Low protein, low nutrient, low fat, low calorie – that is the goal.
Potassium and sodium are also kept low. pH is lowered by weight loss and supplements more effectively than eating or not eating a few foods could ever do, so a few more alkaline fruits and vegetables are allowed. Everyone should make the effort to lose even just a pound or two, and NO ONE should gain weight while swaying pink. Weight loss will lower your testosterone and lower pH.
