    Has anyone ever heard of this diet?  The first week of the diet, you eat only Vegetables and Protein.

    Personally I'm skeptical of all of these "diets". I'm from the old school. Eat right and excercise regularly. Eating right doesn't mean eliminating certain foods from your diet. It means eating a balanced diet from all 4 food groups. If we were meant to only eat Vegetables, we'd be Rabbit's. Sadly our society is becoming too dependant on quick fixes. To me that's what this is.

      Be that as it may, a poon diet still sounds worth exploring.

        Sounds like an Atkins knock-off, which is fine if a person is doing more weight-training and resistance workouts, but probably wouldn't work well for someone doing endurance activity like running and cycling.  I lost 60#s eating a high protein/veggie/whole foods diet, but regained 20 as soon as I fell off the wagon and started bingeing on the high-glycemic carbs again.  I need to stick to something closer to the South Beach diet, which is higher protein, lots of fruits/veggies, and low-glycemic carbohydrates...whole grains.

                A poon diet should not be confused with a 'poon diet, which is more of a liquid diet anyway.

                  Will a 'poon diet guard against "whiskey dick?"

                        What kind of name is Poon, anyway?

                              It's true if a person isn't bingeing on the high-glycemic stuff.  I could NEVER lose weight on low-fat/high carb, no matter how hard and how many times I tried (this was the story of my 20s).  I always ended up shaking and ready to gnaw my arm off.  When I dropped the empty startches my blood sugar was no longer spiking and plummeting, along with my appetite.  I wasn't hungry eating fewer calories as long as those calories didn't include stuff to make my blood sugar flip-out.  60#s...that's a lot of weight off of my 5'3.5" frame.  I couldn't lose 10 on a traditional low-fat diet.  All calories are not created equal for everyone.  200 calories of protein don't have the same effect that 200 calories of pure carbohydrate would have in my system.

                                 No, no my child.  Dr. Poon clearly anticipates your concerns at the very bottom of the page:

                                I do not claim this is a miracle diet and this diet may not be suitable for everybody.
