How did it destroy your skin ? Did it bring you out in spots or was that the detox side of it ? I would love to loose 5 lbs and quick, even just to look nice for christmas, and go back to ww again properly then ?!

I have never tried it, but few of the girls in work have done it during the year with incredible results I must say. One of them is back on 'normal' food , but does 1-2 days/ week of only proteine.

A girl in work did it, the first few weeks are tough, as you can only eat proteins...she ended up having to give it up though, as her cholesterol went up, and she was having digestion problems though for 6 weeks she was doing it she did lose over a stone

[/quote:1jmdci2t] Lumps that weren't quite full spots came up under my skin on my face and one cracked and wouldn't heal and left a scar that is still there a year later. I presume it was detoxing but it was awful.
