Yeah I have heard of it. My sister is actually doing it now. She swears she is losing weight but I haven't seen her so I can't tell you for sure .. I think a 500 calorie a day diet is starvation!! I know I couldn't do it!

I did a consult for this, basically you only eat 500 cal a day yes, but your body burns the fat is has, so really its using lots of calories, as long as you take your vitamins its ok... i just couldn't do it because of the foods you are allowed to eat! I know several who have had great success with it however!

my cousin did it and lost 25lbs in a short amount of time - I'm not sure if she's still doing it, but it worked!

Everyone I know who has done it....and I know quite a few people have lots weight rapidly but have to keep doing it and gain some if or all of it back if they don't....I think it's awful personally but I would never do it so that just my opinion.
