Well, I have a lot of issues with this, and I wondered if you do, too. I really doubt that diets work. The diet business is a 33 billion dollar industry (yes, it's hard to believe!) and there are zillions of diet books out there, with more hitting the shelves every month. If there was a "secret" to losing weight, wouldn't someone have come up with it by now?
Cyrus wants me to have three guests on the show--with wildly different opinions--and he hopes to get a lively discussion going. Vera Mae, my producer, just rolled her eyes when I said, "lively discussion." She says it's "gonna be a train wreck." One guest believes in low carb, one in high carb and one swears by "mind over matter."
What do you think? Do diets work--and do they work for the long haul? I'm Dr. Maggie Walsh and the lines are open!
