List of Ingredients
The Brazilian Bikini Body Program is not a low carb diet, but it is important to recognize that carbs and grains are limited. Your grains come from small portions, and most of the carbs you eat will come from fresh produce choices. The diet focuses mostly on fresh whole foods, with smoothies, juice, and salads. Dairy products are also greatly limited, but not completely removed from the program. Protein comes from lean meat and seafood selections, beans, nuts, and other legumes. The acai berry is the foundation of the diet as it is the Brazilian super food. The recommended exercise plan includes Pilates and capoeira, and examples are in the book. There are several different work out plans, ranging from 10 to 60 minutes in length. Exercise is a key component of the program, so there are tips for beginners, as well as for people who are injured. The work out program will target balance, strength, and cardiovascular needs.

It not realistic for most dieters to expect a perfect bikini body in just a month, but following the program exactly for the 30 days should yield significant results. It is a well balanced program in terms of nutrition and exercise, so those who stick to it shouldn’t have an issue. If you want to boost your efforts, consider adding a proven fat burner or appetite suppressant to the mix, as directed. If you do not achieve your bikini ready body in 30 days, complete the program again from start to finish until you do.
