Recently I have been asked about my thoughts on the Bernstein Diet. I do not endorse anything that I don’t believe in and this is one program that I would not recommend to anyone – a program that only allows you to eat between 600 – 800 calories a day is INSANE. I know many people who have joined this program and YES they lost a lot of weight but you know what – they gained it ALL back if not DOUBLE!! It is super expensive and you have to go to the office 3x per week for B12 shots along with taking potassium supplements.
Dr. Stanley Bernstein’s diet program is medically supervised by nurses, and you have scheduled doctor appointments throughout your weight loss. This specific diet has a low-calorie intake with vitamin B shots three times a week. The diet only allows specific foods, and when your intake of food for the day is complete, you are not allowed to have more food, whether or not you are hungry. This could be dangerous since you may feel deprived or that you are starving yourself.
The dangers of high potassium levels can be characterized by weakness, irregular heartbeat, weak & slow pulse rate, paralysis, and difficulty breathing.
