Additional recommended knowledge
It's an extreme ketogenic diet used for rapid weight loss and is not practical or safe for a sustaining nutritional diet. In order to prevent liver damage, followers are instructed to drink 8 glasses of water daily in addition to any other liquids consumed in order to flush out the ketones. This requirement led to the nickname of "the Water Diet."
The diet includes lean beef, veal, chicken, turkey and fish. Eggs and cottage cheese are also included. Condiments, butter, dressings and any kind of fat or oil are not permitted. Spices, tabasco sauce, herbs, salt, and pepper are permitted. Tea, coffee, and non-caloric soft drinks can be consumed, but only in addition to the 8 daily glasses of water required. It's also recommended that dieters eat 6 small meals per day instead of 3 large ones.
Much of the early weight lost in the diet is previous water retention. Once the dieter returns to eating carbohydrates, some weight gain usually occurs due to a return of some normal water retention.
Dr. Stillman died at the age of 79 of a heart attack.
