CICO Diet Popular On Reddit, Nutritionists Disagree

Reddit, a discussion website with various "subreddit" forums, has posted about the CICO diet across many of its weight-loss forums. But nutritionists are less than happy about this diet that Reddit members keep hyping as an effective method to shed some pounds. "How wrong I was", Yahoo Style reported. The nutritionists work on the procedure that if someone wants to lose his/her weight he/she needs to consume fewer calories and need to expend more in a day.

In a separate thread, another user shared, "CICO will work regardless of what you're eating".

CiCo stands for Calories In, Calories Out, and essentially is all about calorie counting, so not exactly revolutionary.

"I tried to lose weight for years, and only after this past year of consistent, slow-and-steady CiCo (via tracking with MFP [My Fitness Pal app]) have I been successful", one person wrote on the forum. Nutritionists always advice one to avoid junk food and high-calorie food which will let your weight to get higher day by day. Not all calories are created equal, they state, and relying on a calorie count for weight loss has a negative impact on the human body, in the long run. You have to also consider how your food choices affect your body beyond weight loss.

Dawn Jackson Blatner, RDN, and author of "The Superfood Swap", said, "Eating all junk, but keeping it low-calorie, will still wreak havoc on things like your skin, your mood, your gastrointestinal functions".

"It's not as simple as a math equation", Sass adds.

However health professionals have expressed concerns over the diet, mainly because they fear some people may ignore the nutritional value (or lack thereof) of what they're eating if they only care about calories. "And if you see a lot of vegetables, topped with just a little bit of fat, like a drizzle of olive oil, you're probably adding up to about a 400 to 450 calorie meal".

While Ilic knows people can lose weight with CICO, she says, "But would I recommend this to my patients?"

"That number might be a little bit up or down, depending on whether you're taller or shorter, or how much you exercise", she explains, "but 1,500 calories is a great starting point".
