Well there you have it, as an experienced trainer I wouldnt recommend this type of program to my clients. The weight loss is just too quick and the program would be very hard to maintain owing to the very low caloric intake.
I advise my clients to decrease their calories by just 500 per day (and no more) below their maintenance levels and they will be losing 1 2 pounds of body fat every week, safely, without craving and without too much disruption to their lifestyle.
