"Health experts at the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) weighed in today on a weight-loss story in the headlines, warning that the 'McDonald's Diet' adopted by one man is little more than a crash diet, not the kind of behavior change that results in safe, permanent weight loss.""Experts"? Bull.
How do they know that it will not result in "safe, permanent weight loss" for this guy, Chris Coleson?
"But Wally was less enthusiastic about Coleson's chosen method. "Mr. Coleson's weight loss was the result of extreme calorie deprivation. His reported daily intake - between 1200 and 1400 calories - was far below his body's needs."First, notice how they argue with success.
Second, here are the recommendations of other "experts" (Click on the image to link to the page with the original image. Be sure to see the lower table, too.):
The "experts'" diets are "worse" than Chris's diet.
And we have not seen AICR tackling them.
Oh, yeah. And hypocrites, too.
BTW, I am in agreement that most people should be eating more Calories than the "experts" recommend in order to sustain a diet.
But, I will not argue with "success," unless it proves to be temporary.
Then it is not success in my book.
