Many fad diets are nutritionally unhealthy, particularly if they limit certain groups of nutrients. Some of the liquid high-protein diets contain poor-quality protein and are actually dangerous.

There is no such things as a 'quick fix' .  Yes, you may lose the weight now, but how long do you think this will last before the pounds return.

To keep the weight off requires a complete nutrition and lifestyle change.

Good Luck!  Wink Face
