If you're a moderately active person who's used to eating more than 1600 calories a day the dip to 1200 calories for the 4 day anti-bloat jump start might be a bit hard on your system. I was hungry and cranky most of the time and had trouble concentrating. I only made it through by doubling up on the veggies and adding a heaping tablespoon of yogurt to the smoothies. I had great results on the jump start so maybe it was worth it.

I lost 2.5" off my tummy, 1" off my thighs and 1.5" off my chest. That was a lot more than I expected to see in four days--especially off my waist. I think the distribution of the inch loss had more to do with a reduction in belly bloat and my tendency to pear-shapedness than with any belly-FAT burning properties of the 4 day jump start.

I'm only on my second day of the 28-day plan. I'm stuffed on 1600 calories and my energy level is high. I'm skeptical about the claims that this diet specifically targets belly fat but I'm doing it because it seems like a plan to limit my calorie intake to 1600 a day that will be easy for me to follow. We'll have to see how that works out.
