After the egg diet

After the egg diet, a Rehabilitation is essential. Because if we suddenly go back to the nutritional rebalancing, there will be a minimum 1.5 kg weight recovery. It is therefore necessary, following this sequence, to switch to the flash diet (at least 900 calories) for at least 8 days. Then we resume our program for a minimum period of one month.
