Menu jockey diet

• Day # 1: chicken (skinless), baked or grilled (portion of the food should be eaten in 3 doses, divided into 3 parts)
• Day # 2: beef without fat – 300 g toasted on the grill (3 portions of 100 grams)
• Day # 3: black coffee without milk and sugar (not more than one litre)

The secret of the effectiveness of the diet
