This weight loss program consists of eating only fruits (except bananas, considered too sweet) and vegetables (but this method of weight loss focuses mainly on fruits and not vegetables) and that at will.

The name of this slimming program comes from the fact that many Hollywood stars follow him in order to lose weight quickly (to pass a casting or to return to a role for example). Fruits almost always provide very few calories, so they lose weight in a very short time.
Among the main fruits of the Hollywood diet, more or less vaunted for their virtues “fat burners” (argument scientifically unfounded however), you find:
Pineapple (this is the only fruit that can help digest protein, but in no case a fat burner),
These 3 flagship fruits (all exotic fruits), preferred during the week of a fruit cure, are to be consumed by spacing 2 hours between each fruit.
You can eat other foods if you can not resist the temptation, but only 1 or 2 times a week and in very small amounts. In addition, if you consume another food than a fruit, it must be followed by 3 days of fruit cure imperatively to compensate.

1st day: pineapple from morning to evening (one fruit every 2 hours),
