Ask Dr. Denise Lamothe Q&A's
Name: Tara

I was glancing over a recent article in the magazine and it had a diet that claimed you could lose 20 lbs in 1 week. It consisted of a lot of pineapple and papya from what I remember from it. Is this truly possible?

Any weight loss plan that does not urge you to eat a full, healthy assortment of protein, veggies, fruits and complex carbs is a fad. No doubt you can lose weight eating as this gimmick diet suggests but you can be sure you will gain it back and then some. I always suggest The Fat Flush as a mild cleanse followed by a healthy life style eating plan. I also suggest my book, The Taming of the Chew, to give you a full picture of this diet/eating issues from physical, emotional, social and spiritual perspectives. Best of luck --

Be well,
