Nope, 'cos I'm on diuretics already for a mild blood pressure thing.
I'm doing it this way for sanity and health's sake: Monday through Friday I do severe Atkins.
Saturday I do fruit and melon like mad as a cleansing and "Boy that tastes good" regimen. Sunday I eat a more-or-less normal diet, a good mix of protein and carbs and such. Monday I start again.
It works for me. What's funny is that I drop weight from my head first. (You may stop laughing, now.) My face slims down, and people ask "Have you been sick?".
Twenty five pounds to go.
