This can be done by consuming both low-calorie meals or meal replacement shakes.
The weight loss guru said: “If you’re going on simply a meal replacement diet you really ought to speak to your doctor, particularly if you’re on any form of medication.
“They can be really helpful. But what you’re looking for is long-term, sustainable weight loss.
“And that can be achieved, it really can be.”
On days when people unable to cook, they may consume a meal replacement shake, that is high in protein, fibre and healthy fats.
According to the website, they also contain vitamin supplements designed especially for a low-calorie diet, which is designed to get the body burning fat by prompting mild ketosis.
It should be noted that meal replacement shakes can come with some side effects, such as headaches, constipation or tiredness.
This could be down to dehydration, so the programme encourages its followers to increase their water intake to two to three litres per day.
