When it comes to fad diets, the so-called Negative Calorie Diet is definitely one of them.
This fact alone, however, does not warrant an automatic dismissal of this diet. Why?
Because not all fad diets are created equal. There, I said it. Shocked? Let me explain.
The Negative Calorie Diet is a much better choice than, say, the Hollywood Cookie Diet, which I have recently reviewed. How can this be?
So if the Negative Calorie Diet is what it takes for some people to incorporate fresh vegetables, fruits and good sources of protein in their diet, I am all for it.
But what about those negative calories, are they just a myth? That is where the Negative Calorie Diet Plan comes in.
The Negative Calorie Diet Plan proves beyond a reasonable doubt that negative calories do exist after all, but only if you define them as the calories which you do not eat. I think that is a fair definition, don’t you think?
If, thanks to this plan, you do not consume a certain amount of calories, you can deduct them from the calories you would have consumed otherwise. Hence, negative calories.
