One side, it is healthy and beneficial because all it includes is veggies, fruits, whole grains, combos with milk etc., and following the rules strictly can add to weight loss and helps detoxification. It gives positive results as the diet encourages a person to eat selective foods for seven days.

But another side, it delivers the negative impacts as well, because sudden changes in your body can leave you weak and exhausted, especially the day when you have to consume only fruits. Also, once you stop this diet, the weight loss will transform into weight gain all again and hence is not sustainable. Your body needs both, the essential macro and micronutrients on a daily basis and eliminating them even for a short period can adversely affect your health. 

Hence, Choose Smartly and Act Wisely!!
