The first thing I thought of when I heard about the OMG Diet was Gossip Girl, the words “like”, and “totally”.
The diet has been popular among teen girls and actors, but in recent weeks has been gaining popularity worldwide.
The Six Weeks to OMG Diet creator, Venice Fulton (real name, Paul Khanna), is an actor that has expertise in fitness.
Fulton says his diet plan is not a temporary diet; it is a way of life.
Does he really have anything new to offer that will make all of your friends exclaim, “Oh My God!”?
5 Rules (Truths?) of the 6 Weeks to OMG Diet
1. Take cold baths and showers
The idea is that the cold temperature will boost the metabolism as the body tries to heat itself up. This is true, but not enough to burn significant calories.
And, it may even make you slightly hungrier after that cold bath! However, many still swear that a cold bath is best for optimal health—not just weight loss.
2. Skip breakfast
This is absurd. There is overwhelming research that describes how much breakfast helps with weight loss and overall health.
Even in my own experience with patients, those that are not eating breakfast struggle to lose weight. Once they eat breakfast everyday, the pounds drop!
3. It doesn’t matter what type of carbohydrates you eat
Carbs are carbs. This is molecularly true as every carbohydrate is eventually broken down into simple molecules like glucose. However, when it comes to comparing a Coke versus a sweet potato, the produce wins every time.
The fiber found in the fruits and vegetables with slow the sugar absorption leading to better blood glucose management and improved weight management. The fibrous foods help us to feel fuller as well!
5. Eat very little fruit
The argument is that the fructose in fruit alters the appetite hormones. This doesn’t make sense either because what we know is that eating fruit helps us to eat less due to the crunchy texture, high water content, and high fiber content.
An added bonus is that the potassium in fruits can help us retain less water weight.
5. Drink black coffee
Finally, a good tip! Time to get rid of the extra sugar and cream. Black coffee contains potent antioxidants and acts as a mild stimulant to keep the appetite calm and nudge the metabolism.

What I Think?
Overall, this diet screams popularity, trendiness, and fad all-in-one. I could not possibly recommend this as a healthy lifestyle.
It has worked for some, but that is likely due to the increased motivation and accountability.
