The Benefits of the Danish Diet

This diet works by speeding up the metabolism and maintaining the weight balanced after you finish the diet. You can lose up to 40 pounds. It’s important to note that the diet shouldn’t be followed for more than 13 days since it’s a low calorie one, i.e. around 600 calories per day.

  • If you make a pause, you can start the diet again, but only after 6 months
  • After the 13 days, you can follow the diet again, but only after 2 years
