CiCo stands for Calories In, Calories Out, and essentially is all about calorie counting, so not exactly revolutionary.
The idea is that by counting your energy intake and expenditure, you can keep yourself in a calorie deficit and thus lose weight.
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.
“If we simply look at calories in versus calories out, we forget about some of the complexities of weight loss, nutrition and our relationships with food,” Aisling Pigott-Jones, a spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association, told Kashmira Gander at the IB Times.
