The Purple Diet is a program that is also known as the Hollywood Diet or the 48 Hour Miracle Diet, among other names. Essentially, it is a juice diet program that claims that a dieter will be able to drop a whopping 10 pounds within a period of only 48 hours.
For the length of the diet (which can run for 24 or 48 hours, depending on the choice of the dieter), the only thing that the dieter is allowed to consume is the Purple Diet juice. All other foods and drinks are prohibited, other than water. The juice is supposed to contain all of the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that the dieter needs during that span of time. The diet’s marketing materials also claim that the juice will help with the detoxification of the body.
While following this diet, a dieter will be required to consume two 8 ounce glasses of the Purple Diet juice, as well as 8 ounces of water. The bottles of the Purple Diet juice can be purchased online and usually come with a price tag that is in around $10-12 per bottle. Each bottle contains 32 ounces of juice. Therefore, one bottle should last for the full 48 hours that the dieter is following these rules.
While many people have left positive reviews with regards to the ease of the Purple Diet, and they do usually shed some weight during this time, despite extensive efforts to find a verifiable case of someone having lost 10 pounds over the 48 hours of the diet, this was not successfully achieved. It is more likely that people will have lost 2 to 4 pounds during that time. Though that might sound quite impressive, it is much more likely that this lost weight is only water weight and not burned fat. Therefore, that weight will return once more when the dieter becomes hydrated again. The results from this diet should in no way considered to be permanent or even long term.
One positive note about the Purple Diet in comparison with other juice diets is that this one does not contain caffeine. It also contains 100 percent of the 11 essential vitamins that the USDA recommends for adults. That said, it is in no way considered to be a complete diet and should not be followed for more than 48 hours, nor should this diet be repeated at too great a frequency.
