But who I am to comment - my first thoughts when I saw this article were: "Really?!? You mean with one diet I can drop a whole dress size in just five days?"
Of course, the real world set in as I started reading. It's like navigating a sea of caveats, such as:
It's a quick fix not a long-term solution so you could put back on any weight you lose after the plan.
When we switch into desperation mode it's so difficult to switch off the idea of a crash diet... They offer a short-term fix and the promise that you'll look that bit slimmer, feel more confident, etc on your big night!
But isn't that why - on the eighth day - God invented Spanx?
There's a ton of research out there which identifies the pitfalls of 'get thin quick' crash diets - but I don't need a lab coat to tell you that just as you didn't gain a dress size in five days, you most likely won't lose one in such a short time.
Of course there are those who will prove me wrong. To them, I give a salute. You've made the ultimate sacrifice to the dieting Gods, succeeding where most of us fail...
But, I have to ask, is it really worth it for a night or two?
