Personally I don't believe in diets that focus on a restricted food group.
Soup diet, vegetable diet, lowfat diet, low-carb diet...
None of them are healthy.
I believe in what's been said very often:
1. Smart weight loss is accomplished by living a healthy lifestyle. Eating healthy and exercising.
2. Weight loss is very simple mathematics: calorie intake has to be lower than the amount of calories you burn, et voila!
I've lost about 4,7kg over the past 4 or 5 weeks and I'm trying to lose another 2. I've been eating foods from every food group. I eat carbs, lots of protein and healthy fats. Lots of fruit and veg but I try to put a max on fruit (max 3 or 4) because of the fructose.
I'm having an off week though... my exercising schedule is messed up a bit due to a couple of obligations and I think my metabolism is on max speed :-) so I was weak and gave in to a couple of cravings
(sandwich with dark chocolate spread, a couple of winegums, a couple of cookies...)
Time to start again with a clean slate!
