    The diet includes lots of ‘superfoods’ like oily fish and berries that flood your body with anti-oxidants and ‘good’ fats.

    These are easily digested and great for your heart and cholesterol levels.

    Snacking on fruit and nuts will boost your mineral and vitamin intake and drinking lots of water will flush out your system.

    And the low-fat, low-calorie meal plans mean you’ll also lose weight.

    Who is it for?

    People who feel they’re looking old or tired and people who eat too much junk food, want to lose weight or need to detox.

    What are the drawbacks?

    The exotic fruits and fish can be expensive.

    And vegans and vegetarians might be best steering clear of this one, as most of the dinners are chicken or fish based.
