This diet meal plan has quick and promising outcomes. By sticking to this diet, you can lose up to 12 pounds in 1 month.

Moreover, there are two versions of the Brazilian Diet, called quick and normal. The quick version is very rigorous and can harm your health. We do not recommend you trying this version.

The normal version has 4-5 meals, and if you stick to them, you will definitely have perfect results.

Additionally, we have the diet plan for a week. Do not forget to combine this diet with a killer workout. You can repeat the Brazilian Diet for two to four weeks, but no longer.
