The Plan: Take one pill each morning on an empty stomach. Increase your dosage to two pills daily after three days. Eat as usual--this diet doesn't require you to change your eating or exercise habits. People notice either weight loss and/or a smaller clothing size the first week of being on the Lingzhi diet. The Claims: What the Lingzhi diet formula seems to do is increase your metabolism so you burn fat more quickly. It helps you eliminate toxins with increased bowel movements and keeps the carbs you eat from being converted into fat. The Lingzhi diet appears to be a powerful appetite suppressant, and dieters report eating and losing weight at a steady, healthy rate. Not sure about the claims, but thinking about trying it. Lingzhi is a type of mushroom used in Chinese medicine to treat different ailments, so maybe it works. I would be careful about where you get it from though.
