Points to Consider
Healthy, balanced diets are the key to successful weight loss and long-term success maintaining a healthy body weight. The 2-Day Kick Start plan is not balanced a balanced diet because it does not include any fresh fruit or whole grains, and dairy options are extremely limited.
Although losing a couple of pounds over the course of two days may be tempting, it is important to remember that the weight loss would likely only be temporary, according to the Weight-Control Information Network. Extreme or fad diets may sound good, but they often limit nutrients and are hard to stick with. Once you stop your restricted eating, weight is often re-gained. Living a healthy lifestyle is a lifelong journey without shortcuts.
