ImageThe abridged version of his six-week program asks that dieters eliminate dairy and almost all fats. He also recommends drinking at least 12 glasses of water a day under this strict diet regimen. Thurmond also calls for a low-intensity workout, along with several breathing techniques which are supposed to tone the stomach and help eliminate fat.

With the program Thurmond says it is possible to consume the ideal foods in proper combinations, in the right amounts and at the right times of the day. In return, the metabolism will use the food you eat as fuel and will resist storing food as fat. With the program, Thurmond says it is not hard to drop as much as 30 pounds in six weeks with the extended version.

But you better be motivated and ready to love these low-calorie, high-protein meals. Some days the meals barely pass the recommended daily allotment of 1,200 calories. Egg whites, meat, fish, fresh vegetables and limited fruit are common items on the weekly menus. If you can stomach four ounces of protein and a cup of mixed greens for an extended period, you might just lose a size by week's end.
