GiGi, I have been on the Hoxsey diet for one year and have lost about 30 lbs. It is a very easy diet to use and stick too. There are things that you will have to give up, like, white flour, most salad dressings, etc., but in the end, it is worth it. If you cheat on the diet, it negates the effect of the tonic so, you are wasting your time and money. Good luck.
