Question Hotdogs for diet

I read before about the 3 days diet that is mainly contains hotdogs so I got the idea that hotdogs are lean meat and good for diet. The Hot Dog Diet - Diet Review
And me personally was eating more hotdogs before my wedding and I lost lots of weight but I know it's mainly from stress not from special edit.
But when I googled I found that its high fats and has lots of calories !!!
I am having like 1 per meal by day ... is it ok with diet?!! what do u think ?!!!

Diets don't work. Grapefruit, cabbage, hot dog... Not gonna help you long term.

You need healthy fats, lean proteins and good carbs every day and these restrictive diets don't do that.

And eating one meal a day is most likely sending your body into storage mode.

Just eat real food, in good portions, and be healthy. :)

Hot dogs are actually a high fat food.

If you want to lose weight, eat less and exercise more. Simple.

Hot dogs are one of the most unhealthy things one can put it their mouth.

They are loaded with fat, sodium and nasty chemicals.

Someone must have been pulling your leg regarding a "diet" based on hot dogs. It will ruin your health.

Ditto Jennyma. Read the label. One of the worst foods for your body. A hot dog far and few between won't kill you, but that is about it. I love hot dogs in their natural casing. But common sense tells me by reading the label, that one is all my body needs. Or should even have. On the rare occassions I do buy them, I buy only four loose ones at the deli counter. I only buy the all beef with natural casings. I may eat two of them and my son get the other two. Most of the time he get three. And I don't mind. I know they are bad for me. Even though I buy the freshest and best ones there are.

Hmm hot dogs for breakfast! Do you eat them on a bun with scrambled eggs and maple syrup????

I was looking at your signature and thought you should make the underlined part into a link just for kicks.
