The Cura Romana Weight Loss Plan

The Cura Romana Weight Loss Plan has been touted as "the latest craze to obsess New Yorkers" and promises weight loss of "up to 7 pounds a week". DietDoc comments.

I am at present reviewing 3 new books that explain the principles of popular slimming diets. Today is the turn of the Cura Romana Weight loss Plan by Leslie Kenton, which was released in South Africa last month. According to the cover, this book is "The latest craze to obsess New Yorkers" and promises readers that they will "Lose up to 7 pounds a week", so I have no doubt that South Africans will also stand in line to purchase Ms Kenton’s book.

The author is so convincing and her prose is so beautiful that I passionately wanted to believe that at long last someone had come up with the answer to obesity. My fervour lasted until mention was made that it is necessary to use human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) in the form of injections or as a homoeopathic spray when following this weight loss plan (Kenton, 2011).
