Hello! I was wondering if anyone has heard of and/or tried this program. I am interested in it for my mom. Its structured to work with dietitians and doctors to help you lose weight. Any info would be greatly appreciated! TIA

I gather that it's an extreme diet plan. Is your mother experiencing any sort of health problem where quick weight loss is necessary and/or recommended by her doctor? If not, then she would probably be better off finding a diet plan that is more balanced and more suited to her lifestyle. People that follow very low calorie liquid diets such as that frequently regain their weight, and usually quickly. I personally wouldn't recommend a program like that unless she's already tried other diets, such as Weight Watchers, and her doctor has recommended something more extreme.
