Go slow : I am not a big fan of fad diets as studies have shown that maintaining such a diet becomes harder to achieve chronically. For any weight loss plans, i recommend approaching is slow. A short diet plan may reduce weight initially, maintaing it will requires complete lifestyle changes. I would strongly encourage a good balance diet with increases in exercise to achieve wt loss goals.
