  • My dad lost a ton of weight on it and ended up on high blood pressure medications. He had to go off of it, gained his weight back and then some, and will probably by on BP meds the rest of his life. Best "diet" is just eating healthy, watching your calories and exercising.

  • My friend did it for like 3 yrs, but she would pick and choose when she was on it, so the week she stayed on it, she lost, but then she would get off and go to burger king and ruin it all. So I think if your commited to it, it will work.

  • My friend used the Atkins diet and lost 70lbs and kept it off for 3 years. She is also diabetic and had no problems with the diet causing any bad effect.
