1 doctor agrees

In brief: Probably not

Extremes of diet are never good unless there is a very specific reason to have to do this.
Eating a balanced diet is the proper way to get the nutrients you need for daily living and a healthy body. By limiting a diet, you limit certain vitamins, nutriets and other essentials.
