Dear LL
I have not yet heard of the Jelly Diet, but you will of course lose weight if you don't eat any foods that contain energy! However, this would be a most unbalanced and potentially dangerous regimen to follow. You will not be able to sustain it for long because you will start feeling faint and weak and depressed. Rather use 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).
Rather safe, than sorry!
