Dietitians comments about the Scarsdale Diet
This diet has been around for many years. If it was the magic cure
for obesity, it would have worked a long time ago. Rapid weight loss
and extreme diets can produce quick results but are typically very disappointing
to the dieter when weight loss returns just as quickly.
