She has lost almost 20 kg and inspired many women to follow her example. But the question is whether this diet is really healthy?

Evangelina Mantzioris nutritionist said that diets like this are not good for the body because the body does not receive important minerals such as calcium, healthy fats and vitamins. Too much fructose from fruit is equivalent of a few cans of Coke a day.

What do you think about this type of diet?
