Have never heard of this diet.
It's interesting how people want quick fixes to lose weight. Will you lose weight going on a diet and restricting yourself to eating only certain types of food? Yes.
Will you keep the weight that you have lost off for good? No.
More than likely you will end up gaining back what you have lost on a "diet" and more.
They only way you lose weight is by good-old fashioned hard work...healthy eating and exercise. If you have a slower metabolism, you will have to work a lot harder. Genes play a big role in that. Discipline helps. If you have an addictive nature, you will have an even harder time and have to be even more disciplined.
The more you eat, the more your stomach stretches, the hungrier you feel. The less you eat, your stomach slowly shrinks, the less hungry you feel. You have to train yourself to eat slower, chew more, savour your food more, eat smaller main meals with breakfast being the biggest meal of the day and have small energy boosting snacks throughout the day.
Almonds and raisins are good snack.
So my answer to your simple question turned into a lenghty answer, and yes, I gave more info. than you requested but hopefully this helps someone that reads this.
