  • I have a very hard time sticking with it because for the first 2 weeks you cannnot eat any fruits, carbs, or anything like that. I do have friends that have done it and it worked for them. I know my doctor told me that if I was going to do a diet this should be the one I try.

    Good Luck!

  • I've never tried it the only one I have tried was the cabbage soup diet and it sucked! I mean if I stuck with it, it probably would have worked but I felt as of I were starving myself!

  • omg cabbage soup diet is horrible! Definitely a waste of time. Low carb diet of any kind is a little difficult but works. Also many have great results with WW.

  • Yes. Short-term "fix".
