I will only say this, when I got married I was at my heaviest weight. I'm pretty sure my day and my marriage wouldn't have been any more special or meaningful if I'd weighed less. Do I wish my wedding photos were of a thinner person, sure, but does it mean the day was less important or that I didn't still look beautiful, absolutely not. To lose 22-55 lbs in 28 is a pretty high expectation. And if your goal is to be permanently healthy a crash diet is not going to achieve that. Any diet that says eat as much as you want of this food or that food concerns me. And it seems very limiting and I see no whole grains and only fruits and veggies as complex carbs. I could go on and on, but I'm not an expert and you need to find a plan that works for you, so if this is it then this is it.
