Step 4: Using the Carbo Gram Diet Protocol:
If you need to lose weight, start with the "Quick Start Diet". All instructions, rules, carbo-gram counter, score card, and recommended supplements are presented.

What to do when you reach your weight goal:
Once you reach your weight goal it's time to find your optimum daily carbo-grams intake. We recommend you start by following the Maintain Weight Diet Protocol.

If you start to gain weight on this protocol, you will have to reduce the number of daily carbo-grams intake until you stabilize your weight. Reduce the number by no more than 5-carbo-grams per day. Follow this protocol for 2-weeks before making any more adjustments.
