…but just for three weeks, so that’s totally okay, right?
Bob Harper of The Biggest Loser went on the Today Show yesterday morning touting his new book “Jumpstart to Skinny”. He advocates an 800 calorie diet for women and a 1200 calorie diet for men and says that you can lose up to 20 pounds in 3 weeks. You might. You might also be cranky, sleepy, cold, weak, lose your sex drive, feel foggy headed, be unable to concentrate, potentially slow your metabolism and you certainly shouldn’t try to exercise while eating that few calories.
I’m glad his book is called Jumpstart to Skinny, because it absolutely isn’t Jumpstart to Healthy & Fit. He is promoting disordered eating, even if it is for a short time.
Food is fuel. Eat it.
