People have spent their entire lives trying to understand which diet is the most effective. The one that’s all protein? Or maybe the liquid one? How to manage the carbs? How about starvation?

Some will make you lose weight as quickly as you put it back on. Some will give you bad breath. Others will damage your heart. Some will even taste horrible, being restricted to cotton balls dipped in either soup or juice.
