Interesting- medically, why do they restrict them from the outset to so few calories? Someone with that carriage would lose weight at 5000 calories a day, why do they not start off with that? Three large pizzas a day instead of ten, as opposed to fruit and vegetables? A gradual reduction instead of cold turkey(!)?
