Given that the Gianluca Mech® Diet is freely available, it is best to obtain medical advice before embarking on this weight reduction procedure. The doctor will only prescribe the diet after you have completed a "self-certification" application that includes the required examinations, as specified at the bottom of the document.
The self-certification form is all that is required to request medical advice for the Basic Protocol (20 days). To request medical advice for the Intermediate Protocol (30 days) or Impact Protocol (40 days), in addition to providing your medical history, blood tests are also required.
The information included in the self-certification document is also used to design a maintenance or diet regime to be followed after the Gianluca Mech® diet.
