Thanks to everyone for your comments on this crazy sounding diet!! I agree wholeheartedly with all of you. I'm sticking to what my grandfather used to say (he lived to 103!), " Eat everything in moderation" and in his 80s and 90s, he was a fan of See's chocolates!! Also, very interesting about flax seeds! Thanks, again, everyone!! Happy Holidays!!!

It claims to be a detox diet, but I can't believe that anyone can lose that much weight in a month. Is this just another "gimmick" diet or does it really work?
I think your original question is "can" she loose 30 lbs in a month. If a person is very very obese, yes she can, but if she isn't she won't. What you've described is what I've been doing for a long time now, restricting my diet to no more than 60g of carbs a day, and most days with far less than that. Like others, I think it's a mistake to not include dairy. This life style is manageable with cheese and butter.

Is she planning on having a body part amputated?
