If you see a diet that tells you to eat before you get hungry, don’t. You’re shooting yourself in the foot. Eating before you get hungry just packs in extra calories. Eating before you get hungry does not prevent or forestall damage later in the day. If you see a diet that tells you eating a certain food speeds up weight loss, don’t eat that food. There is no food you can eat that speeds up weight loss Not eating speeds up weight loss. If you see a diet that has you restrict the amount of liquid you are dirnking, don’t ever restrict liquids. You need at least a gallon (128 ounces) of non-caloric fluid every day, whther you are dieting or not.
