I think you have to look at why these people did die...it is just not that they were on a diet.

When your obese or morbidly obese you walk a fine line every day....

As your chances of getting a stroke, heart attack are very high and also are vunerable to diabetes, cancer and other crippling diseases along with damage ot hip and knee joints.

Once your BMI goes over 25 the risk of developing heart disease begins to increase there after.

Of course it is sad for anyone to die who is trying to do something about their weight.


If you are at all worried I would advice you read this report which might help put your mind at ease.

Ooops, didn't mean to open a can of worms, perhaps i worded it wrong. I am of the opinion that it was probably being overweight that was their proble, i (think) I only mentioned it in case someone rushed out and bought the magazine and was then terrified by what they read, i should have have explained myself better in my original reply. Sorry if it sounded like I was being negative (and let's face it, I haven't stopped the diet and am having a fantastic success with it so am the last person to knock it)
will red the links tho ;-)

its ok, lilypad it didn't sound like that!

Mini just put that up there to reassure anyone who may have been worried!

incidently I'll bet they've not counted up how many people have died whilst following other diets as well....

anything a bit different just seems to arouse fear in people who have not done any research

Since roughly a quarter of the population is on a diet at any given time, there will always be people who die whilst on a diet. When the diet is not controversial, there is no media mileage to be had in blaming the diet.

It's not just LL who reckon these deaths had nothing to do with the diet - the coroner agreed. However, there'd be no story in that, and nothing for Grazia to fill their pages with.

Edited to add: not aimed at you Kate, just a general comment.

Now i feel really guilty!! I had done some research and knew of one of the deaths, but what `i read did indicate that it was the poor souls health that caused it, rather than the diet, I'm not being stroppy, but I really wish I'd thought before I typed, and am really sorry if I have worried anyone, but i truly believe there is nothing to worry about. Bugger me and my quick reply!
