CiCo diet trend can be an unhealthy way to lose weight, nutritionist warns

Posted on
The latest diet fad to set the internet abuzz is called the CiCo diet.

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.
