I had an online friend send me a diet that she's on. She says her and a few women she works with are on it. On average, they are loosing 10 pounds a week. To me, that sounds like a lot. Yes, I'd love to loose that much a week, but it sounds dangerous. I'm also not so sure the diet is very healthy. It's supposed to be like a detox thing, but I'm afraid of gaining weight back quickly when it's over and add the 'dont' foods back in. Here is a list of the do's and don'ts. Let me know what you all think please.
