Steve Harvey is attempting to lose 21 pounds in 21 days with a “magical” detox diet. But critics are saying the diet is dangerous and ineffective. What do you think….is this really Steve Harvey’s body???
The diet, called “Lose 21 Pounds in 21 Days,” is based on best selling book by Roni De Luz and James Hester. The diet suggests people to sip fruits and vegetable juices every two hours fore three weeks. Dieters are not supposed to eat a bite of food the whole time. Only liquids.
A diet that encourages only juice consumption is a recipe for failure, says celebrity nutritionist Christine Avanti. “Where is the fiber if everything is all blended up?” she says. “And fruit drinks can cause blood sugar to spike.”
She also added that when users go back to eating regular food, their metabolism is slowed and would cause them to regain the weight.
