So... is rice something you normally eat one or more times daily? Otherwise, I wouldn't see how it could make any difference.

Rice, like most grains, is high in carbohydrates. Lowering those types of foods can help but to keep the weight off as well as good health, you may need to develop a more balanced diet. Fruit and veggies. Don't just drop rice or any one food... rather, add in what your body needs. And move. Are you too busy for even 20 minutes a day of walking, swimming, dancing, etc? It's not healthy to just sit, or even stand, all day... our bodies were meant to move and work better when they do.

Read "The 10 Day Detox Diet" book. You can get it on Amazon.

It's a program you'll want to stick with.

Don't all books / sales do pretty much this ? It's called doing Business and making money. I'll bet you've not even reviewed before you got critical.

What do you think the goal of City Data is ?

The book is good reading, logical and a great way to lose 10 lbs in a month. I've lost 13 and going to stay with the plan.
I guess eliminating sugars and eating healthy is not logical to some people.

I eat healthy but I do not make myself adhere to strict rules regarding my diet.
Congrats on the 13 pound loss, that is something to be proud of. Hopefully you will continue to lose and then maintain your weight for the long haul.

The goal at City Data is to use the board to share opinions about diet and weight loss. IMO these types of diets never work in the long run. 'Detoxing' is a marketing term and has no really basis in real life unless you happen to be detoxing off of drugs/alcohol. In the dieting world its used as a gimmick. There are so many books with the same plan only tweaked a bit to seem different.
Common sense tells us to eat whole, fresh foods, lots of veggies, lean proteins, good fats, and whole grains like quinoa and oatmeal. Limit sugar and avoid prepackaged foods. And of course watch calorie consumption.
I guess I should write a book.

I agree. All these books are common sense principles where people want to see them in black and white and not figure it out themselves. Believe me, I have bought so many books over the years and now at 47, I'm finally like, LIGHT BULB!!! Just eat better foods, less of them and move more! Duhhhh!!!!

If you want to lose 10lbs in a month, then get a program that will best suit you. Exercises should work on the parts of your body. Be flexible and perform a variety of exercises.

You can find research to support a bunch of different claims for just about anything. The bottom line is if you lose weight too quickly what you are actually doing is losing the very thing you need in order to burn calories and keep the weight off, which is lean muscle mass. Diets do not work long term, ever. The only way (weigh?) you keep weight off long term is by completely changing your lifestyle, forever!

Not necessarily, and even if you do find conflicting studies, you simply have to dig deeper and examine them. In this instance, we have two independent, peer reviewed studies coming to the same conclusions.

Again, this is not true if done correctly.

I agree, most diet books are crap. I will say though, some times having a very strict framework can help. Whole 30 helped me. But, it wasn't just the book, it was also online support from people on a forum just like this one. The super-strictness forced me to really examine my habits and helped me set up some new ones that have stuck (like making breakfast every morning and working out before work). Of course, the real beauty of Whole 30 was that I didn't have to buy anything to do it.
