How many calories could one actually consume on such a diet? I have no idea but that's pretty much what I have been doing - eating cough drops now for two months. This is a most uncomfortable way to shed 27 pounds. I don't recommend it.
Clothes are baggy - breath smells like eucalyptus - and even chocolate doesn't appeal to me.
BUT, there is the tantalizing idea that I could make a Million Dollars with a book on this diet along with tasty recipes. That is IF I could get on Oprah's Show.
