South Coast Diet
The south coast diet meets all the essential criteria for a healthy diet. It has fruits, vegetables, cereals and proteins. Most importantly, the diet does not propose to exclude the change of a single group of products, allowing you to mix and match them yourself, thus creating a personal menu.
