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

[edited by mods]
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.

    Damn you. You made me give traffic to the Daily Mail! I wanted to laugh at the craziness!

    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.

    ... is this... is this a joke? Is it a spoof article like the Onion? Because this can’t be real. The amount of straight up crazy is just... is this a joke?

    No its just the daily mail.

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

    So I clicked through on the yahoo link posted later in the thread, and if it's any consolation, most of the comments below the article are pro-CICO and pointing out the obvious fallacies. I mean there's some derp down there of course, but the majority sound like our people.

    She is scarily a dietitian according to the article.

    Dr. Oz and Dr. Mercola are doctors too. Titles don't mean anything. Dietitians can be woo peddlers too (as evidenced by that article). What a load of *kitten*.

    [ETA:] And I thought Intermittent Fasting was the new Keto. It has just about the same amount of magical pseudoscientific woo claims going for it.

    Daily Fail love the 5:2 diet though, the "doctor" (who is a doctor but has actually been a journalist for most of his career) is on their payroll I think. So they're all about singing that particular fads' praises.
