Even though the Krisiloff Diet is a specic diet,I rarely discuss it as a way to lose weight. As I have said mant times,the diet is first and foremost an antiinflammatory diet.Because inflammation leads to so many common problems,this alone is why the diet is one of the most important diets ever devised. Yet people on the diet loses on average 5-6 lbs. in the first month alone. Several of my patient have lost as much as 10-15lbs. In the first month. This goes to show how many calories there are in things such as alcohol and chocolate.
