No.: In and of itself, the water diet does nothing to increase health. Set aside the questionable weight loss. The water diet explicitly says you can still eat what you want as long as you ingest 64oz of cold water.

Not corn flakes!: I don't consider corn flakes a healthy diet choice, esp. If not organic as they are genetically modified and contain bt toxin .

Organic eggs are a good choice, but fruits, veggies, nuts & beans are good choices too. See my comment:. ...Read more
