So guys let me know.

    recommended that you PLAN
    IT SO THAT you DO NOT HAVE
    ANY BIG EVENTS during the next 13 days

  2. The best time to start is on a SUNDAY,
    which only gives U one miserable weekend

  3. You need to drink a MINIMUM OF 2 LITRES OF WATER a

It sounds awfully dangerous... Please be careful xx

Wow, I've read some nonsense on these forums in the last 2 years, but this probably takes the prize for the daftest diet programme I have ever seen...

13 day/17day/(whatever) diets DO NOT WORK. Neither do magic pills, injecting yourself with horse wee, fasting, eating only baby food, or anything else (especially involving you parting with your money).

You eat healthily (always over 1,200 calories - ideally 1,500+), exercise some, and have a small daily deficit, you lose weight. Simple.

A diet that you cannot do more than once in a year. Point 9. That's where I stopped reading. 

the fact that it gives itself an "out" by saying, "if you deviate just one bit, you will fail" is the first second clue that this is a useless fad diet (the first clue is the name).  There is probably nothing inherently wrong with this if you could eat enough (it comes close to cover the minimum calorie idea with the "AMAYL" bit), although it's boring, it's repetitious, it's essentially a modified Atkins, south beach, low-carb diet.

You are much more likely to have success by exercising 45-60 mins and having a total calorie deficit of 250-500 calories per day -- you will lose weight slowly, but you will also take the time to learn new eating habits and incorporate exercise into your life.  You are more likely to keep the weight off by learning new (better) habits, than through some fad, rapid weight loss diet.
