  • Ok I tried this method as I wanted to jumpstart a diet and thought losing 10 pounds the first week would be a motivator. I feel that I probably could have lost the ten pounds but did have some healthy fruit snacks for dinner. This was my only wavering off of this diet.

    I did lose 6 pounds and feel very motivated to keep going. I wouldn’t want to attempt this diet long term but that’s not what it’s meant for anyhow. I think it’s effective in getting your diet off to a good start. Thanks.

  • This is a horrible idea! While it is certainly possible to rip off ten pounds in this fashion, the average person is going to regain 3 to 5 pounds of it the minute they go back onto a normal reduced calorie diet. Your body stores glycogen in your muscles and this diet will cause you to burn it all off, that process takes water. In addition, the lack of sodium will cause your body to lose even more water, so about half the weight lost is only water. Next, the lack of protein in your diet will cause your body to catabolize your skeletal muscle tissue. So, an additional 2 or so pounds lost will be lean, fat burning muscle tissue. This will decrease your basal metabolic rate making it MORE difficult to continue weight loss afterwards and if you return to your normal caloric intake, you will actually GAIN additional fat weight after this diet. Lastly, if you do as this diet suggests and resistance train (weights) at night, it is IMPERATIVE that you do NOT skip dinner. When trying to lose weight long term, the only time you want your body to become anabolic is after strength training. Eating a healthy mix of carbs and proteins within 1 or 2 hours after strength training can coax your body to build at least small amounts of muscle even on a reduced calorie diet. Again… more skeletal muscle equals increase basal metabolic rate, equals more fat loss. Be healthy people, figure out your caloric needs and NEVER eat less than 1000 calories per day below than that amount. If you do, your only burning muscle and shedding water.

  • To: Jake!! You are so right!! If you want to lose weight and keep it off you HAVE to change your life style of eatting habits. Small portions, lean, low fat, lots of fruits and veggies. Ask yourself how bad do you want to lose weight?! How much do you want to look and feel better about yourself?! The energy you’ll have! I know it’s not going to be easy but put it in your mind that you can do it, and trust me you can! Best of luck! 🙂

  • So, Jake you;re correct, but ready:
    WATER – #1
    Yogurt (low sugar, might be greek, high protein)
    1 Protein Bar
    Big Breakfeast
    1 piece of meat any kind just low fat so avoid Pork and others like it.
    and salad and fruit
    I did this for the whole summer lost 25 pounds perfect shape, now I gained 15 back
    Also I do 100x more exercise back in the summer. What can I do to get some sports or anything, as I have school and programming.

    Thanks you

  • I havent tried this diet yet but i will start tomorrow morning.And i have something to say to jake,it may be true what you say but you need to try to keep to eating less and trying to stay in shape.when some people get of the diet they think they can go right back to there old eating habits,and there for people gane back the weght.

  • I start tomorrow and am very excited to lose a lot of weight in 1 week the only problem is i am young like really young im still im middle school so im not sure if this is healthy to do while still so young but i still want to be thin and strong thats all that matters to me. so wish me the best of luck i cant wait. Oh and to all of thoughs people who say this doesnt work or its stupid you people are just saying that because yall werent strong enough to stop and be strong so give positive adice to lift people up and be positive things to say. Im gonna have fun!!!!!!

  • Are you insane Morgan. your still in middle school. If you want to be active that’s great go for a run, or pick up a school sport like basketball. Your still growing, if your still in middle school you must be 12 or 13. Females stop growing at around age 18, give it time. You’ll get to where you want to be. I don’t think this type of diet is for you.

  • Please be reminded of the following 2 things (that are already included in the post above, but let me remind everyone again):

    1. Always consult you doctor before following any type of diet.

    2.Weight loss plans like this one, are only suitable for a very limited amount of time. For results that last, you need to adopt healthy weight loss goals and routines; this is by far the best way to lose weight.

  • I’m very excited to start this! I’m almost 16 and my sweet 16 is in a week. I just got my dress tonight and it looks pretty good, but loosing ten pounds would make it perfect. I totally agree with Morgan that this is a personal choice for any girl at any age, and is a much better alternative to anorexia and bulimia. I’ve been told I am still growing and I need to lose some weight, but no one has ever really given me something strict to follow. I really hope this works!

  • i am also young and i am trying this in one year i gained 35 pounds :O this is NOT healthy so im going to start this diet today & tell my results i hope this words, i used to be the skinny girl running in the class room and now im “wow you got bigger -____-” this needs to change asap so if a little dieting is what i need to do it’s gonna be done !

  • To all the little dumb girls that are thinking of doing this like the other ones posted before.

    Just have in mind that these girls didnt came back on this website to tell how great it was and how they loose weight.

    And why is that ? Because this is not a good diet for durable loose weight, and especially not a good diet for teenage girls.
