Dear Natasha
I must admit that I am not acquainted with the 'Spartan diet'. If you have more details, post another Message on the Message Board describing this diet and I will give you my opinion. You can also judge for yourself: is this diet balanced and does it include all the food groups, or does it prohibit one or more foods groups, esp carbohydrates?; is the energy content so low that it is a starvation diet?; does it require you to take special pills or potions or injections? - if you answer 'Yes' to any of these questions, the diet is not balanced and you would do better by using an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life).
