Phase 4: Maintenance
Every diet must have a beginning and an end. Phase 4 is the maintenance or “lifestyle plan”. This phase teaches you to enjoy the freedom of eating your favorite foods while maintaining your new shape! The maintenance phase is based on a few simple principles:
Maintaining adequate protein without the Ideal Protein Foods
Meal frequency: Eating often enough
Food combining: The “principle of dissociation” (the avoidance of “bad” food combinations) by separating carbohydrates and fats during lunch and dinner.
Weekly free-day and damage control plans: One day a week, you will be able to relax the rules and the following day you will utilize the principles of the program and whole foods to deplete the excess from stores and reset your body for the coming week.
