'The Human Being Diet', created by Petronella Ravenshear, requires dieters to only eat 600 calories (2510.4 kilojoules) a day. 

The nutritional expert claims that her diet will help people to lose weight, feel more energetic, and sleep better.

According to the Daily Mail, 'The Human Being Diet' has sparked controversy as it is seen as a highly restrictive diet regime. 

"The diet includes two days with no meat, fat or alcohol and instead dieters just eat 100g worth of vegetables blended into a soup.

After that, dieters can introduce meat and other forms of protein into their diet - but no oil or alcohol is allowed, meaning those on the diet will eat around 600 calories a day for two weeks."

Ravenshear has insisted that this is not a diet but rather a "three-month programme to restore metabolic balance".

The diet is set out in four phases.

Phase 1: Preparation. 2 days of vegetables only

Phase 2: Reset. 14 days of eating 3 meals a day, combining equal weights of one type of protein and a mixture of vegetables and eating 1 apple a day 

Phase 3: Burn. 10 weeks of a continuation of phase 2, with the addition of olive oil and a weekly treat meal  

Phase 4: Forever. A continuation of phase 3 and a discovery of which foods best suit us. Experimenting with extra treat meals but maintaining the HBD principles.

Disclaimer: Always consult your doctor or dietician before starting any new diet.
