Fad diets often have big promises of quick results. You’ve probably tried, or at least heard of, many of them. However, there’s more to these diets than you may first realize. Many of these diet fads are risky and can damage your health. They can destroy your body if you aren’t careful.
Needless to say, nutritionists despise them.
Learn the truth about some of these diet fads.
This diet forces you to eat nothing but cabbage soup.
Although in this diet you do eat lean foods besides grapefruit, nutritionists aren’t fans of this diet because it still limits your food so much that it’s only a very short-term solution.
The tapeworm diet is considered to be one of the most dangerous diets. Nutritionists strongly warn against it. This fad diet forces you to eat a live tapeworm or tapeworm eggs, so you lose weight.
Nutritionists don’t want you to even think about trying this diet! The main premise of this fad diet is to eat cotton balls soaked in orange juice to lose weight.
Some believe that since baby food is safe for children, they can eat it as adults to lose weight. However, nutritionists warn that this fad can harm your health.
Nutritionists share that many fad diets have similar aspects. The most common thing among fad diets is that they tend to severely restrict your calories or the food you can eat.
They may give you short-term results, but you won’t be able to stay on the diets very long and will gain the weight back, usually very quickly.
You also run the risk of having serious health issues from these diets. Besides the negative side effects, rapid weight loss itself can be dangerous for your body. This is caused by you losing bone mass, muscle mass, and nutrients too quickly. It’s healthier to lose weight at a slower pace.
