When we look at the ABC diet there are two versions. The one we are looking at is the Ana Boot camp diet. The other ABC diet is by Robert S. Wieder who got fed up with all the confusion of all the different diets that were coming out.Robert created his own version of the ABC diet.
How to Do the ABC Diet
In the ABC diet you have to eat only foods that begin with the letters A, B, and C, and which appear in Wieder’s list.
When you look at the list there are so many things which are not easy to buy. But the logic of the system is very easy. The science behind the information needs more backing.
Abalone: Even if you find any, you couldn’t afford it.
Antelope: You’ve never seen a fat one, have you?
Asparagus: Zero calories, because you probably hate it and won’t eat it.
Apples: You’ve got to eat something.
Beluga caviar: See “Abalone,” above.
Bouillon: It’s just flavored water.
Bean curd: See “Asparagus,” above.
Baguettes: C’est la vie.
Chard: Basically spinach without the Popeye panache.
Celery: No calories, and you can use it to floss.
Catsup: If Reagan could call it a vegetable, so can you.
Carrots: They’ll go nicely with apples and baguettes
This is an interesting read but it is out of print. The ABC diet was taken and rewrite and used as the Ana Boot Camp Diet.
The key focus of the abc diet is calorie restriction. Which is know is the master key to losing weight. When you look at the table below you will see to what level they are looking at for calorie restriction.
Personal when I look at the numbers alarm bells go off in my head. The idea that when you reduce major amounts of food. The body will use what is stored. This works well if the journey is managed in a controlled way. Making sure the body is not overstressed during the process. Success will happen. This system is very aggressive.When it is aggressive the body actual slows the process down.
I have worked with a number of professional athletes who have to reach a weight for their choose sport. They have used this system under personal choose and now they are suffering from the long term damage from this system.
Short term you can get some good results if the body is in a good state to start the abc diet. Due to our stressful lifestyles, this is a small percentage of people.

Side effects of ABC Diet are:
You may have trouble breathing
Low blood pressure
Extreme weight loss
Risks on the ABC Diet
While under this diet, your body will get used to saving energy as the calorie intake is minimal.
Once you complete the ABC diet, your body may store even more body fat than before. This will be due to the production of storing hormones.
The risk of losing muscle mass and osteoporosis is very high and due to lack of essential vitamins, even organ damage can be caused too.
There are other risks of the diet too including:
- Low energy levels
Many health professionals or nutritionists do not advise people to follow this diet unless your body is already in a good healthy place.
“Remember your body needs to be in a healthy place to lose the weight”
