Agree, i read up about it alot, and you do have to watch what you eat afterwards, its basicaly a quick way of losing weight for a wedding etc, but it does work, i want to do it just to give me a boost and get me started with dieting, if i can do 3 days, and see iv lost it, then take it from there, im going to save things like the apple and banana, and melon and ice cream, and have it when i am hungry, so dinner at 4 then the melon and ice cream about 7pm etc. il post how it goes anyway, i am currently 9st 3.

If sounds to good to be true it probably will be.

As above says can gain 3 x rate you lost it, it also easy to say 'oh i'll bring food back in slowly' but this is very hard thing to do when you just cut your food supply one day.

Way to boost fat burning is to exercise!

Im 110% fan of healthy eating & exercise ive lost 81lbs.

Good luck with it.

I did this diet many years ago (called british heart foundation diet in the UK) and along with many other fad diets. I did lose a lot of weight as i did this for about 3 months and did loads of exercise too.

But i did put all the weight on, and more, and now i struggle to lose weight. Maybe it messed up my metabolism because my weight has yo-yo'd in the past and doing fad diets.

I'm sure having 2 young children doesn't help my weight loss either because i can't get out to exercise as much as i used to, and i snack on quick foods like biscuits when i'm hungry.

But if you want to lose weight a healthy varied diet and exercise is the key, but thats easier said than done. haha.

You don't really expect to lose 40 lbs in 30 days, do you?
People, the only way to loose weight is not eating less, but eating intelligently: 50% proteins - 30-40% carbs - 10-20% healthy fats. Adjust your diet according to the above percentages and you will loose fat tissue.

to get metabolism back to best it can do can take upto 6 weeks, so dont expect results within week 1.
