  • no. it shouldn't be used to lose weight...however it is fine to use it as a cleanse/detox of the body in order to give your body a clean slate to start a healthier lifestyle

  • Absolutely not. Cutting back on calories and exercise is the best way to lose weight, period.

  • Nope you will just gain all the weight back.

  • If they worked, everyone would be slim, yes?

    They can be a pretty good way of going nuts, though. Nothing quite like not having the calories necessary to power your own brain...

    You'll lose water, almost exclusively (like the intake phase of Atkins)... which (ha ha) you'll gain back immediately. Yippee.

  • It might be a way to lose weight, it's not healthy by any means. Starving yourself isn't a healthy way to lose weight.

  • Diets and diet aids (if they even work) are temporary fixes. Unless you learn how to eat healthy for life, you will not be able to maintain a healthy weight and will stay on the gain/lose roller coaster - frustrating for you and hard on your body. Drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water every day. Eat 5-6 servings of whole grains (brown rice, whole grain bread, etc.) every day. Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, in at least 3 different colors. Eat at least 2 servings of legumes every day. You will lose weight. You will have more energy. You will maintain a healthy weight. You will get sick less often. You will be setting a wonderful example for your children. You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library:
    Eat an apple or a big pile of vegetables before meals
