Skipping breakfast, cold baths and black coffee are some of the extreme weight-loss techniques that are taking the dieting world by storm.
For more than a decade he helped the Hollywood elite trim down for the red carpet, and this year sports scientist, Venice A Fulton, released a six-week plan promising to get you ‘skinnier that all your friends’ in record time.
And now Six Weeks To OMG is quickly becoming one of the top slimming books on the market, overtaking manuals promoting the ever popular Dukan and Atkins Diets.
Sports scientist, Venice A Fulton, states that cold baths can help with weight loss
Based on a plan originally designed for Fulton’s A-list clients, the OMG regime claims to use a mix of nutrition,
biochemistry, genetics and psychology, to help shift up to 20 pounds of body fat and reduce cellulite.
Contrary to the notion that eating small, frequent meals throughout the day is good for you, Fulton states that it’s damaging, and instead encourages dieters to stick to three meals a day.
Although, instead of breakfast, he proposes a mid-morning meal at 10am to help boost the metabolism.
He says: ‘In 2000, French researchers
reporting in the British Journal of Nutrition were among the first to
show that a typical high-energy breakfast of toast, yoghurt and fruit
actually blocked fat loss throughout the entire day.’

And to help eliminate the appearance of orange peel, Fulton suggests a combination of cold baths and black coffee.
In the chapter titled Skinny Dipping he states that plunging into cold water will cause the ‘metabolic rate to shift to overdrive’ and if you’re not brave enough to immerse your whole body you can just expose your legs.
He adds: ‘Most of us have a hard-wired fear of all
‘It takes a few brave humans to stand up and try
‘Eventually, the truth spreads from these explorers, and
makes all our lives better.’
He also reports that fruit juices and smoothies cause overeating and carbohydrates found in broccoli can be worse than those from full-fat Coke.
While the majority of reviews are positive, some remain unconvinced by Fulton’s unconventional techniques.
‘Thought I would buy the book and give it a go.
‘Don’t bother. You can’t follow the programme if you don’t own a bath or enjoy coffee!,’ writes Kitchengeek on Amazon.
Last year experts from the British Dietetic
Association named the Dukan Diet the worst celebrity weight loss plan to
follow and said it has ‘absolutely no solid science behind it at all’.
The slimming method which works on
restricting foods, calories and portion control. topped the BDA’s annual
list of the five worst celebrity diets to avoid in the New Year.
As well as losing fat, Fulton reports that his OMG technique will also help flatten the belly, improve the condition of hair, skin and nails and help readers feel good about themselves.

What an absolute pile of b*****ks. If you want to lose weight, get healthy and all that jazz try this diet. Three healthy meals a day but don’t pile your plate. If you must snack try eating nuts. Red meats, chicken, fish and plenty of steamed veg are ideal lean foods. If you want to lose fat do exercise that doesn’t hugely raise the heartbeat. If you want to get fit, do exercise that does. Drink plenty of water as it hydrates (i know its obvious) and supresses hunger. Low weights with high repetitions will tone, heavy weights with low repetitions will build muscle. A decent whey protein shake will help with the body’s recovery and get a good nights sleep. This works around our typical working day, doesn’t neccessarily require gym membership, fitted inside the DM’s 1000 character limit and didn’t cost you a penny. Thank you muchly!!
I find it funny how people that have only read an article or two written by people that have probably not even read the whole book are making judgements…
Another factor to make it effective is believe in it, think positive! Our brain works! If you think and believe you loss fat…then you actually loss it. Try going back to natural stuff, let mother nature nourish us, then you will see the results.
This diet makes loads of sense I think – I’m always sceptical on fad style diets but I strongly believe this one is so unusual that it has to work – and for all of those saying it’s not healthy, well it is, as all the main food groups you need are still eaten 3x per day + exercise – a v healthy diet – got the book yesterday and determined to give it a good go. I have tried weight watchers and slimming world and they don’t work for me as I’m hungry at night – not with this one. Plus it all makes sense !
I have a new diet which I will reveal to the world. It involves eating nothing at all and wearing no clothes. The full details are in the book which is on sale at £4.98
This is absolute rubbish and I wonder how many brainless women, and perhaps men, are going to buy into it. Just don’t eat so much and you will lose weight.
@Sarahalexandra Fruit sugar (fructose) doesn’t increase insulin levels, you’re thinking of glucose.
Nowhere in the book does it say Coke is better for you than Broccoli!! It says that if you really wanted to, you can get all your carbs from Coke if you want rather than Broccoli, but either way you have to count both. It then goes on to explain why getting your carbs from Coke is bad, and why veg is good.
I own the book, have read it in full and the good old Daily Mail have made another wacky interpretation just to get the shock factor rather than telling the truth.
Yes there are some weird ideas in this book (blowing balloons up to tone your tummy every other day is one of the weirdest!) but it basically tells us what we have heard before – low carb, low sugar, dont eat too much sugary fruit, do lots of exercise, do weights (even girls) etc.
