Diet is just Calorie for Calorie, yall. if you eat a calorie surplus, you will gain weight, if you eat a deficit you will lose it. You can lose weight eating twinkies if you eat under a certain amount of calories.In diet, there is acidic foods, and alkaline based foods. While you should aim for a more alkaline based body it is also important to maintain a certain degree of acidity. The more alkaline your body is the less likely of bacterial contamination that can manifest or grow in your body. This will eliminate bacterial sickness. I find that grapefruit juice is a great way to get rid of the water weight in the body. You should only drink grapefruit juice if you can handle the acidity of fruit juices, otherwise you might find yourself some acid reflux. And you should only drink this while trying to reduce the water weight in your body. Once you have achieved this reduction you should stop drinking grapefruit juice, as it is very acidic.
