I've a friend who always use to have coffee and cigarette for breakfast. It's her habit and she told me that it helps her to lose weight. Based on her figure it proves to be true,since before she's kinda have an above average weight. Have you heard this kind of diet? Do you think it's good?

Not safe, nor healthy. This is a tactic a lot of anorexics use, caffine and nicotine to curb appetite. Hopefully she is only doing this for one meal, or she may have a serious problem. Eating breakfast starts your metabolism. Therefore, she would be doing better if she had something small for breakfast, rather than nothing at all. Smoking can give you bladder cancer, does she know that? I smoke, I'm not innocent, but learning all of the odd, lesser known things smoking causes makes me do it less. I hope that she has some good toothpaste, because both of these habits stain teeth.

Well she's lean and sexy, she did lose weight. So far she's doing well, but I doubt it would always be the same tomorrow, because her diet plan is very unhealthy. Yeah, too much consumption of coffee is unhealthy while smoking is very dangerous to our health. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

I know that Christian Bale used this kind of diet when he did The Machinist. You will definitely lose weight fast but it will also shorten your life.

well living unhealthy to lose weight is not a good idea and smoking is not a healthy habit. i dont smoke and i dont drink coffee so this kind of diet is not for me, if i want to loose weight i will just eat less

Hi careguarden, well you're just describing the Greek breakfast there and it has nothing to do with losing weight if one then pigs out later on a lot of fatty food. Most people follow that way here though and don't actually touch food until later in the day but obviously the children eat breakfast.
