I know people who have done those milkshake diets and they end up putting more weight back on than they lost!! The quicker it comes off, the quicker it goes back on
Oh that is SO SO SO untrue Have you never seen anyone gaining all their SW weight back?? If you actually look around Minimins youll see hundreds of people doing VLCDs and having just as much success keeping the weight off as anyone on SW or WW does.
The VLCD do involve an element of learning how to eat healthily again even know they are meal replacements, you could be armed with all the information in the world it's just what you do with it. There are lots of people on VLCD boards who are succesfull and have learn't to balance their eating again. The way the media make people believe certain things really grate on me, the shakes are forified with mega amounts of vitamins. They are scientifically proven to be safe otherwise doctors wouldn't be able to sign you off to be able to do it.
I would love to have the will power but I know I wouldn't hence why I have taken the scencic route.
