The diet includes healthy food substances in daily diet. But it also had another aspect to it.

The person has to have 1000 calories only from day 1 to day 3 and 1500 calories from day 4 to day 7. This could lead to malnutrition. Nutritionist Rachael Hartley states:
“A thousand calories is under the daily amount recommended for a 2-year-old. So for an adult eating that and expecting to fuel their day, you might not keel over, but you’re not going to have the energy to perform at your best,”
Also, protein-rich foods such as chicken, beans, healthy fats, and whole grains are left out from this diet. This causes an imbalance. Therefore, best to consult a nutritionist before jumping for this fad diet.
