This is essentially a juice fast. Order a 32 oz bottle of fruit juice for as much as $24.95 and consume nothing but juice and water for 48 hours. They claim you can lose up to 10 pounds in 2 days. Unrealistic weight loss claims, and the use of the word “miracle” should alert you to avoid this diet. If you do lose weight, it will be from water loss and the cleansing of your bowels. You gain it back once you start to eat again.
To lose fat, you must burn more calories than you consume. You must burn 3,500 calories to burn one pound of fat. To lose 10 pounds of fat in two days, you would have to burn 35,000 calories more than you consumed, or 729 calories per hour, for the entire 48 hours. You could accomplish this by running at the speed of around 5 miles per hour. You won’t accomplish it by following a juice fast.
The creators of this product state “Many people refer to me as the “diet guru” to the stars because my weight loss program has been featured on television and magazines worldwide.” The diet is referred to as the Hollywood diet, yet they have admitted that no celebrities have followed their program. One celebrity, Paula Abdul, sued them for falsely claiming that she used their product.
