In this diet, people eat once in a day and then fast for next 24 to 36 hours. For example: if somebody starts snake diet today, they will not eat anything until tomorrow morning.
The next morning, the person can eat anything followed by fasting again. As per him fasting process resets the body and let it use the extra stored fat in the body. The website says that one should start the diet with 48 hours fast and involves a crucial step which helps in detoxing. The followers should have Snake juice as it helps lose few kilos in starting as the calorie intake is restricted and snake juice helps maintaining the balance during the fasting period.
