An unusual story of a diet today, that, I for one, keep seeing everywhere.
We had planned on telling you all about the Fat Burning Cabbage Soup Diet from Sacred Heart Medical Center....but this afternoon, we found a catch.
The hospital says the phoney plan has been going around the world under its name for the past decade.

In Roanoke, Jim Chidester did just that-- and he's lost 69 pounds, to back up those claims.

Jim Chidester got the diet from a friend-- the menu centers on-- cabbage soup-- a brew of onions, peppers, tomatoes, celery.
That's become his dietary mainstay for the first three days of this seven day plan-- along with other fruits and vegetables.
Then on day four, things really get interesting.

RUNS=:34
OUT Q=most boring day.


But after nine weeks on the diet, Chidester says he's really not that bored-- he's also exercising, and he has more energy than ever.
At Lewis Gale's Health Management Center, one dietician is worried that such a reduction in calories can quickly put the dieter into ketosis, where the body starts burning fat for energy.
(/////SOT/////)

Matthews is also worried that as soon as dieters break off the rigidity of the diet, they'll gain the weight back....quickly.
