The Millennium Diet is a program for loss of weight and it shows you how to lose weight in short period of time. In the book of Dr. Mark Davis, you can find a diet plan which can help you to lose up to 30 pounds in just a month of trying it.

The Millennium Diet helps you to lose weight by using the foods which you can find at any grocery store, unlike many other diets which utilize specialty shakes or foods. The diet is a high protein, low-carb and low-glucose diet plan which is designed to urge your body to fuel itself with fat stores.

How it works

The Millennium diet is very simple. The diet focuses on removing several weight gain foods such as high GI carbs and sugar, while it keeps other food to a minimum, which is not so harmful. This diet doesn’t completely exclude food groups, because if you start to do that, the most common outcome may be malnutrition.The diet requires a control of portions which usually leads to a lower intake of calories.

The big plus for this diet is portion control because it’s much easier than counting calories. While you are on the Millennium diet, you can eat three meals per day, which includes veggies, fruit, legumes, whole grains, poultry, skim milk, low-fat yogurt, fish, mustard, mayonnaise, coffee and diet soda. A big part of this diet is exercising. Regular exercising will lead to faster weight loss, so jogging two miles or brisk walking fro 3-4 times per week is highly recommended.
