In brief: It looks safe

From reviewing the descriptions of their different weight loss programmes they basically use low calorie diets for overweight (bmi 25-30) and very low calorie diets for obese individuals (bmi 30-35) both with monitoring of your primary care physician and the programmes' weight loss counselors.
For most healthy people this diet plan is safe when monitored by a doctor.
