THIS Morning fans bombarded the show with criticism today after it showed viewers how to lose a stone in 21 days.
Dr Michael Mosley appeared via a video link from his Buckingham home explaining how to shed weight rapidly by eating 800 calories a day.
But many viewers were unimpressed, calling the advice "irresponsible and healthy".
Others insisted the advice, which will be aired on Channel 4's Lose A Stone in 21 Days tonight, was "extremely dangerous".
Dr Michael insisted the diet would tip the body into fat-burning mode, saying: "You have a huge amount of energy stored in your body in the form of fat."
One This Morning fan tweeted: "Can you lose a stone in 21 days ? YES but you SHOULD NOT. I am disgusted that they're promoting this its not healthy!"
Another said: "This sounds irresponsible and unhealthy!! I’m only petite but need way more than 800 calories. Extreme dieting can’t be good for anyone."
A third raged: "Stop promoting this extremely dangerous advice that will lead to ppl having serious health problems and eating disorders."
Another insisted: "Seems pretty irresponsible promoting drastic short term weight loss."
However, others insisted the method worked and wasn't a hardship, tweeting: "Only having 800 cals 2 days a week & I've lost 11Ilb without really trying."
Another joked: "I’ve eaten 800 calories since today’s show started!"
