The person can eat any amount of these foods but have to stick to the items mentioned in the list. They are prohibited from straying from the list.
“Restricting the intake of carbohydrates and fats puts the body induces a starvation-like state, which forces the body to use fat stores for energy.”
Carole Middleton and her recent diet plan
Nowadays, Carole is on a purely vegan diet. In an interview given to The Telegraph, she said:

These include blueberries, walnuts, dates, apples, red wine, turmeric, green tea, olive oil, parsley, and kale.

“Lifestyle changes can make a huge difference to body, mind and soul. Take walking – by this I mean brisk, vigorous walking.”
