I have been on this diet once before and it absolutely works for those that have willpower and discipline. It does not only help you lose the desired weight that you have been trying to shed for years, it also improves your quality of life and overall health. This diet was a lifestyle changer for me. I did this diet in 2013 and was able to keep all of my weight off until just recently after my pregnancy. Within the first week of this diet I felt healthier, less bloated, more energetic and was able to see (and was told by others ) the healthy glow in my skin form the increase of my daily water consumption as well as my healthier choices in food. I am now returning to the clinic to get back on track with my weight goals.
