Cold shower, Skip Breakfast, Black Coffee – it’s OMG Diet!

Skipping breakfast, taking cold shower, eating less fruits and drinking black coffee is the secret to get skinny within 6 weeks, according to Venice A Fulton (Pual Khanna), a British Sports Scientist, Personal trainer and author of the OMG Diet.

You’ve heard of Dukan, scoffed fat on Atkins, fainted from drinking only honey and lemon water and lost friends from the noxious side-effects of the cabbage diet. Now there’s a new one, this time designed to inspire jealousy and help you to “get skinnier than all your friends”. Six Weeks to OMG comes out in print next month. It has knocked the Dukan Diet off the top of the iTunes diet book chart and a subsidiary of Penguin has bought it for a seven-figure sum. Read more non Telegraph

According to  The Guardian,

The hot new advice book by Venice A Fulton, Six Weeks to OMG, is the latest fad diet sporting an internet-age title. It claims to use a mix of nutrition, biochemistry, genetics and psychology to help you lose weight – leaving one to wonder how a person uses genetics to diet anyway. It also instructs readers to take ice-cold baths and skip breakfast.

But beyond the ludicrous guidelines, the bit I find really telling is the book’s tagline: “Get skinnier than all your friends”. I’m not sure a diet book has ever been this “honest” about the root of the motivation that a lot of women (and men, who seem to increasingly be falling prey to this) feel for dieting. This book is indeed using psychology – but it’s using it against its readers.

Based on a plan originally designed for Fulton’s A-list clients, the OMG regime claims to use a mix of nutrition, biochemistry, genetics and psychology, to help shift up to 20 pounds of body fat and reduce cellulite. Contrary to the notion that eating small, frequent meals throughout the day is good for you, Fulton states that it’s damaging, and instead encourages dieters to stick to three meals a day- The Daily Mail says

The best analysis and review of this fad diet comes from The Independent

The book, by British sports scientist and personal trainer Paul Khanna, who goes by the pen name Venice A Fulton, offers controversial tips, such as skip breakfast, take cold baths and drink black coffee. But for short-term weight loss, can the OMG diet really help you shed pounds? Consultant Dietitian and Sports Nutritionist Linia Patel, Dr Christian Jessen, the presenter of the Bafta award-winning Embarrassing Bodies series, and the celebrity fitness trainer Jay Darrell Ingleton explain the science behind Fulton’s unconventional theories. I’ve also given Fulton’s tips a try, in a (highly unscientific) experiment, to see how tough they are to stick to.

Where is it available now?

It was first made available on Amazon as an ebook and Kindle apps. But now it seems like taken down since the author signed a 7 figure deal with Penguin Publishers. It’s still available on ITunes store for £7.99

The bottom-line:

According to our nutrition expert, it’s nothing but another fad low carb/no carb diet which is dangerous in long term; it should work, but would fade away quickly.
