Ok, I started reading on the internet tonight about the health risks of Very Low Calorie Diets. I read about Heart Arrythymias, Gallstones, Electrolyte Imbalances, and worse outcomes.

So now I am really wondering how this can be Ok, to go on the 5 bite diet?

I guess I am seeking some reassurance or something! Very Happy The Five-bite diet is so simple and makes sense to eat alot less food, and I really like the idea of the fast wieght loss!


I havent read the book, but I have read up on the internet a nice bit about 5-bite diet. I do understand that some poeple who go through Gastric Bypass Surgery also go through a diet similar in volume to this? I have watched all the videos on the Slimming Station website also

I am a canidate for a Very Low Calorie Diet, because I am Obese, with a BMI over 30 and I have a health condition that would probably disappear if I lost most/all of my excess wieght. I am getting discouraged with the 1-2 lbs here and there, it isnt enough motivation sometimes!

Hang in there. Don't let that stuff get you down. Remember this is suppose to be short term. Stick to it for eight weeks lose the weight and get on with your life making healthy decisions. You should watch the 5 bite diet video on you tube. Its an interview of the doctor who started this. Also if its any consolation I have read alot of forums abut this and some go back to 2008 and I never read anything from anyone who had been on this for any significant amount of time have any health problems from it.

i understand the health risk issue, but like jenny said, this is short term.
in addition- keep in mind that we're not taking weight to the anorexic level here, so as long as ur taking in calories thru the day and u have ur multivitamin things should stay in check as far as ion balances and electrolytes are concerned and arrhythmias should not happen.

If you are at all worried about gall stones and so forth, make sure that u drink water. You must drink LOTS of water to clear out all that ur body is digesting to make u lose weight and for the most part thats fat and protein. Similar to the atkins diet, if you dont drink water u will get kidney stones from all the protein filtration overdoes, same here - tho we're not eating full on protein crazy meals, ur digesting ur own fats and proteins and that still puts a burden on ur kidneys.

All that being said, i think its quiet evident that the less time ur on the diet, the better off u are. Get this done with, get to ur goal and then SLOWLY start integrating good healthy foods and juices and water to stabilize ureself again.

hope that helped out a little- i know the post was kinda old.
