Many diets achieve quick weight loss, but the weight comes back when the diet ends. The goal is a sustainable diet without undue pain and expense.
The Half Hour Diet may not be as quick as others, but it can yield good results. Recent examples of weight loss on the Half Hour Diet include an 18 year old girl who lost 15 pounds in six weeks (partly by eating more regular meals and eliminating constant snacking), a 250 pound woman who dropped 12 pounds in one month, and the author, who trimmed 17 pounds over ten months.
All three lost weight without going to the gym, and all describe the Half Hour Diet as “painless.”
