Minimal, Low, and No Calorie Diets

Reducing and restricting calories is not a problem, but taking this dietary approach too far results in unhealthy and ineffective weight loss programs. If a nutrition program fails to meet the minimum daily requirements to sustain life, then you can bet you will lose weight, and fast! Companies promoting these diets use the base fundamentals of The Zone, Atkins or Fat Loss diets and then reduce the amount of calories in their programs to the point that your body will essentially begin to metabolize its own lean body mass as well as fat. You are losing muscle along with the fat, and you are hurting your body in the process.

Restricting carbohydrates for short durations instead with micro-diets or one-day cleanses is safer and more effective.
