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.
