How would you like to shed a serious amount of body fat in one month without marathon workouts or an unhealthy crash diet? It’s not as hard as it may sound, so long as you tighten the screws on your meal plan and understand that the short 30-day window leaves no room for slacking.

Follow it for one month and you’ll soon notice a difference in how you look and feel.
