The energy provided by ProtiLife products comes from proteins and they can not be stored, the body being unable to do so. That's why we have to eat protein every day. When it comes to uncontrollable cravings, it is better to consume a ProtiLife product rather than foods filled with fat and sugar. One or two over-consumed products can temporarily reduce your weight loss, but this should not compromise your long-term results. Keep in mind that you should not consume more than one ProtiLife bar a day.

Some people may experience migraines during the first three days of the diet. However, they should disappear quickly and completely. Taking a pain reliever will not affect your diet. If migraines persist or worry you, please consult your doctor.

These symptoms often occur in the very first days of a slimming program due to changes in salt, sugar or caloric intake. If these symptoms persist or are of concern, please consult your doctor.
35. Will I suffer from constipation?
Since your intestines will contain less food, it is normal for them to work more slowly. Drink plenty of water and consume a large amount of Group 3 vegetables (unlimited vegetables) listed in your slimming program guide. Do not hesitate to consult your pharmacist if constipation persists for more than two days.
36. I like cooking. Is it possible to give more flavor to ProtiLife products?
Of course. You have the opportunity to practice your culinary skills during the ProtiLife program. ProtiLife products can be flavored with herbs, spices, seasonings, vegetables, or prepared with tasty recipes. The only requirement is to follow the list of authorized and restricted foods and the menus in the program.
