    Not consistantly. You would continually feel full.

    We are talking Green List only here, no cheating!

    That wasn't my point though... Its not what you eat that makes you loose weight.

    Any diet that's a calorie deficit will work.

    Lost 30kg on LCHF in the first year. Been maintaining this weight for 3 years, but falling off the bantwagon over holidays, picking up about 5kg each time, then losing it again in the first month of returning to LCHF.

    Most of that would be water weight.

    Well - water retention can do that too.

    Not a diet per se, but I applied the principles of the palio diet [very loosely] and managed to lose 25kg's last year [Feb - Dec].

    Oh, I went off it ages ago. I'm a healthy 63kgs at 1.78meters. Nearly at racing weight again.

    Surprised that they're still around. Herbalife is the health version of Amway.
