The new It diet - the CICO diet - is a model of the old calories in calories out
It has proven popular on Reddit forums in recent weeks, as people eulogise it
FEMAIL spoke to Sydney-based nutritionist and dietitian, Lyndi Cohen, about it
She said that while CICO might work, it also isn't highly safe or sustainable
Ms Cohen said CICO encourages you to become obsessed with numbers

They had a chance to write an article about the science behind CICO but instead report this drivel.

    I'm torn between "I want to hit someone" and "what did you expect" :(

    This is bad even for it being in the Daily Fail.

    I'm with I want to hit her and the editor.

    Where did this dietitian study?

    It seen to me, they all know only one thing "veggie, fruit, junk food, bla bla".

    Weird, the same thing popped up in my feeds this morning from other sites. The Yahoo byline seems to be the first one, but no author is attributed. There's a theme here: the "sudden" popularity on Reddit and the assumption that anyone using CICO is eating mostly junk.

    The article makes perfect sense. The "nutritionist" has something to sell, so it's basically an ad piece.
