Do grapefruit diet pills work?

Do not waste your $: Do not waste your time with "weight loss supplements". Green coffee beans, raspberry ketones, hoodia.. Are just the latest in a long line of overhyped fads. If you want to achieve weight loss, reduce your carbs to a bare minimum, drink only water, eat lots of low starch veggies and increase your activity levels. ...Read more

Does the grapefruit diet works?

Does the grapefruit diet works?

Old classic: This is decades old and there's no magic -- nobody's going to overeat grapefruit. Perhaps you'd have even better results with a fitness-focused lifestyle (it's fun and you make friends) and a less bizarre diet with plenty of yellow and green vegetables and fresh fruits. It's something you could make part of the rest of a new life. Cheers. ...Read more

NO!!!: First of all, you should not be asking questions on this site since you are only 16. The diet you described is a terrible idea. You need to be evaluated by your doctor, and then you need to follow a steady reasonable lifestyle of healthy nutrition and exercise. ...Read more

Does the 3 day military diet really work?

Does the 3 day military diet really work?

Would anticipate: short-term loss with significant water loss. The military diet (AKA 3 day diet) is a short term diet plan. A specific low calorie diet menu is spelled out & is to be used 3 days per week. Food choices are provided for four “days off” totaling 1,500 calorie intake per day. The diet promises that you can lose up to ten pounds in a week. I would be concerned about how low the calorie intake is on > ...Read more

Does cabbage soup diet work ro lose weight? Any side effects? Any other  certified  fad diet that really work?

Diets: Fad diets are marketing ploys to promote a concept that has more to do with making money than with a well-balanced diet that promotes long-term compliance conducive with a healthy lifestyle. Many of these diets are also low calorie diets. A low calorie diet is a diet that provides extremely low calories in order to produce significant weight loss. They can be unbalanced and cause problems. ...Read more

Do diets really work when trying to lose the pounds? I hear mixed reactions. Some people say it works and others who stayed on the diet said no. Why?

Do diets really work when trying to lose the pounds?  I hear mixed reactions. Some people say it works and others who stayed on the diet said no. Why?

Yes: Caloric restriction actually has increased ability to predict weight loss than does exercise. Of course, the best is to combine the two. Increase your metabolic rate with exercise, strength train to gain more muscle. Most important is to make sure diet is healthy, has all nutritional components. Gimmicks don't work, but typically lower carb diets, with caloric restriction & exercise is best. ...Read more

Could abidexin diet pills really work!?

Could abidexin diet pills really work!?

Abidexin: Yes abidexin is a reliable weight reduction pill but I think you would be better served if you worked on your diet and exercise. Loosing weight at a great speed using pills is, in my opinion, not in your best interests. Go on-line and look up "NuVal" which will give you a good idea of what foods will help you loose weight rather tablets. Also be sure to exercise readily. ...Read more
