Hollywood Diet??

Has anyone tried the hollywood diet, where you drink the fruit juice for 2 days?? I would like to try it to drop like 5 pounds for a special occasion. I just want to know if it will work. If you have tried it please let me know!! Thanks!!

This is just really unhealthy in my opinion.

Unless you're doing it as a detox fast or something like that.

I did it once. Worked better than a colonic to clean out the system. Just pick a quiet weekend where you can stick close to your personal water closet.

A healthier alternative...

Is the Fat Flush Plan by Ann Louis Gittleman. It seems that the average is 10 lbs the first week. don't have to starve yourself. You eat regular meals, just cut out salt, sugar, starch (for first two weeks), etc. The diet is actually intended to be a life-long change...but since the first week has such great results, I have done just that part before.

Cut out Starch

>>>the Fat Flush Plan by Ann Louis Gittleman. It seems that the average is 10 lbs the first week. don't have to starve yourself. You eat regular meals, just cut out salt, sugar, starch (for first two weeks)<<<

Isn't that similar to cutting carbs a la "Adkins diet"?

I think, in the Fat Flush Plan, you eat only meat and veggies for the first 2 weeks, so it's way more hardcore than Atkins! And afterward, you add foods back in slowly and if you add a food and then start to gain weight, then that's a food that you cut back out and leave it out - it tells you what types of foods cause you, personally, to gain weight and which don't. So it's more personalized than Atkins, Atkins is more general.

To the person who tired it...

What kind of juices do you drink, can you drink odwalla juices or just the plain stuff (all natural of course)?

re: Cut out Starch

The previous comment is correct. You do cut out a lot of foods for two weeks, but then you add individual items back into your diet. I personally never cut out chocolate - although I did cut back - and I lost 10 pounds. All with healthy food.

And the Fat Flush Plan does not restrict all carbs. Vegetables are unlimited and you can have two fruit servings per day.

and I forgot... so you lose a couple of pounds (it turns out... we really are all full of crap) and it is time for the big event... you're wearing a pair of pantyhose, girdle whatever. alll dressed up... you have a little alcohol... then wham... YOU REALLY HAVE TO GO!!!! AND THERE'S A LINE! (yes i do speak from experience with this juice)

then you pack on twice to three times the weight you lost, and your tummy is upset for a couple of weeks and you definitely don't feel like working out.

on the other hand, if you've been working in the midwest for a few months and all the flour, fat and sugar have combined into a giant donut around your intestines and you just don't want to get off the couch, I highly recommend it.
