Hi Brandy!
I know nothing about this diet so I cannot comment. But I did want to mention Ann Louise Gittleman's book/diet "Fat Flush." It is perfect for us over 40 chicks because it deals with liver cleansing and hormonal imbalances treated through food choices. It literally transformed my body 6 years ago (and it has remained the same since) and believe in her wisdom wholeheartedly. I highly recommend her book!! Read the reviews on Amazon and see what you think. :)

Crash diets (and very low calories) will only hurt your fertility -- not help it. Losing weight is important for fertility, but you don't need to lose 40lbs in a month to have success. This can also screw up your cycle. Just losing 10 pounds and increasing activity can make a huge difference. Keep going to the gym...you will be fine.
