The Spoonlight Diet: A Strict Diet with High Risks
Working in the world of Haute Couture and fashion, Karl Lagerfeld had started a very strict diet during his career. An ultra-rigorous method which is based on a hyper-protein re-balancing, that is to say that it is based on a high intake of proteins and low in calories.
