The water diet is like a fast
Essentially, the water diet is more a water fast. Fasting as we know it is quite normal for most people and tends to produce results such as weight loss. However, it is not an advisable way to lose weight as your body lacks specific nutrients.
Cold water diets
Water diets can include cold water diets which are milder diets. In essence, an individual can continue with their normal intake provided that they drink a specific amount of cold water every day. The thinking behind this is that your body will expand energy to warm up and with cold water intake it will only need to expand a few calories.
