Krista Varady, PhD, from the University of Illinois at Chicago discussed the topic during the annual meeting of the North American Menopause Society in Orlando. Varady said the diet may not work for everyone but under the right circumstances eating a diet of under 500 calories one day and eating whatever they want the next can help patients lose the weight they want.
