Dear M
This diet is based on research results published in scientific journals, where some of the research subjects used this type of diet for other reasons (e.g. to lower blood cholesterol) and despite eating 'ad lib' (as much as they wanted to eat), they still lost weight, so if it is followed accurately and also combined with exercise it will cause weight loss. Scan earlier postings and you will come across Readers who report that they have lost weight with this diet.
