Quantities to take for the magical snack time!

I received a very good question from a reader:

 I really like your website..
 Can you specify the quantity on the snack?
 How much chocolate/fruit/fat…??
Thanks so much”


And I replied:


“Thank you for your message! I’m happy that you like it.
Yes I know I need to update it to inform on the quantities for snack:
– 30 grams of dark chocolate (min  54% cacao) OR any nuts
– 1 Chinese bowl of fresh fruits (except bananas) OR half a Chinese bowl of dry fruits (like dates, apricots etc.) OR 50cl of freshly squeezed orange juice.
I hope this helps!”



Can I have my coffee with soy milk?

A reader asked me:

 “Hi! do you think that I can have my coffee with soy milk?”

And I replied:

“To be honest I have no clue, Doctor Delabos doesn’t mention this milk at all. If I listen to my intuition I would say yes because this is not fat, animal fat so I would say yes :-)”

Starter – When should you have your proteins?

Another reader asked me about the proteins to take in the starter diet:

“When shall I take the proteins?”


“You should take your protein powder or bar as part of your snack. This is the first thing you should take when the snack time comes (when you get hungry in the afternoon which is 4-5 hours after your lunch)”


I remind that the proteins are to take ONLY during the starter diet and I also remind that, if you want to repeat the starter diet, WAIT 2 MONTHS before doing it again.

How long should you wait between meals?


Hungry man


I have received a question from a reader who was asking:

I think that Delabos says that there are certain rules in regards to how many hours are necessary
between meals…can you please tell me how much do I have to wait between meals and at what time you need to have dinner before going to bed?”

Here was my answer:

“You need to wait between 4 and 5 hours before having the next meal, actually it is when you get hungry again.
BUT, sometimes you can think you are hungry but in fact you are not, it is in your head 🙂 (willing to eat VS need to eat). That’s why it is good to know that you should take it only 4-5 hours after your meal.
The only time you can reduce this period is after your snack, usually you are hungry between 2-3 hours after and you can eat your diner 2-3 hours after your snack, only if you are sure you will go to sleep 3 hours after.”
Send me your questions and I will always reply (if I can!)
Have a lovely day!



Starter Diet: Calculate your Quantites

This quantities are based on the fact that you have a profession where you sit all day long like me. What is your height? If it’s 170 cm then take this as a unit.


Your height in centimetres – 100 g (Example 170 – 100 g = 70 grams)

Half the quantity of the cheese: 70 / 2 = 35 grams


Your height in centimetres: 170 grams


Your Height Quantity
150 cm 1 table spoon (poor you!)
160 cm 2 table spoons
170 cm 3 table spoons
180 cm 4 table spoons
190 cm 5 table spoons (lucky you!)


It is the same quantities for everyone and you should take 3 things:

  • 1 bar or 1 powder bag of proteins (tryptophan)

You can find the exact proteins created for this diet on Amazon: Tryptozen proteins.

  • 30 grams of vegetal fat
    • EITHER Dark chocolate (min 54 % cacao)
    • OR any kind of nuts, walnuts, etc.
    • OR olives
  • Natural Sugar:
    • 1 Chinese bowl (around 25 CL) of any fruits
    • OR half a Chinese bowl of dry fruits
    • OR half a LITER (50 CL) of orange juice (100% pressed fruit only – no added sugar)


Your height in centimetres = 170 grams

If you don’t like Fish, eat white meat:
Your height – 60 g = 170 – 60 g = 110 grams


Your Height Quantity
150 cm 1 table spoon (poor you!)
160 cm 2 table spoons
170 cm 3 table spoons
180 cm 4 table spoons
190 cm 5 table spoons (lucky you!)
