With countless diets popping up left and right every day, many of these just make us question exactly how safe and reliable certain diets can be. Cole Robinson, a non-certified expert claims that his Snake Diet does more than help you lose weight and also cures diseases like herpes and diabetes.
Cole Robinson, a Canadian personal trainer, claims that his new Snake Diet will “challenge everything you thought you knew about food and the limits of the human body.” The diet itself encourages and teaches you how to eat like a snake. Basically, the diet encourages you to follow the eating habits of a snake as in gorging down one huge meal a day and fasting for the rest of it. The meal of the day preferably consists of fats and proteins to provide the necessities of the day. To begin the Snake Diet, Robinson says you need to fast for 48 hours while drinking his special "Snake Juice", a mix of water, pink salt and NoSalt.
Robinson claims that his drink is essential for cleansing the body of toxins and addictions, as well as kicking the bodily-gears to begin the fat burning process.
Does The Diet Work?
Eliza Savage, a registered dietitian, says “It’s not built on solid science, and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.” Losing weight by starvation, albeit faster due to a smaller calory-intake, is incredibly unhealthy. Any weight lost that rapidly can only be gained just as fast. Alissa Rumsey, the founder of Alissa Rumsey Nutrition and Wellness, spoke up about the Snake Diet, said “your body will respond with cravings and eventually you’ll overeat,”. Snake Juice is also incredibly dangerous as drinking that much sodium causes severe health issues and much more.
At the end of it all, the Snake Diet is dangerous and has absolutely no scientific backup and many dietitians and health experts highly warn against it.
