The "corset diet" has gained a considerable amount of attention lately, and as a result I find it virtually impossible to not address the topic.

One of the major attention grabbing, so-called "facts", about the "corset diet" is that people claim it helps them eat less and hence helps them cut calories and overall, lose weight.

But most importantly, I cannot stress enough that if you are unhappy with your weight and want to do something about it, it is important to seek out professional advice. Visit your family doctor and let them know what your goals are; make sure that there are no health concerns that you need to consider before you begin a weight-loss regimen and also consider speaking with a certified/professional trainer and nutritionist.
