FALSE: People in the 80s were all about this theory... remember Bo Derek's look? People would go on crash diets as much as they would tease their bangs. Crash dieters may lose weight, but it's not a healthy way to lose weight as some of that weight is muscle weight. Assuming that just eating less would take care of everything is a poor assumption as well. Now, and especially after reading Fit, we know that there are several factors for improving your health and your daily intake of calories is one of them, but so are the amounts of protein, carbohydrates and fats (good and bad), vitamins (etc.) in the diet as well as how active you are.
