Why Are Fad Diets So Popular?
With the obesity epidemic expected to affect 50% of the planets population, the time of ‘fad diets’ and ‘fast weight loss diets’ has escalated to dizzying heights. From the cabbage diet to the Zone Diet to the 48 Hour Miracle diet, every single one of these weight loss fads all claim to quicken weight loss and increased rejuvenation.
Do they work?
No… Apart from helping you to achieve immediate water weight loss of 1-2lbs, mostslimmer’s have claimed small weight loss of just 1-4lbs before hitting a plateau.
More disappointingly, once dieters stopped following these fad meals they quickly regained all lost weight.
Are they risk-free?
Whilst can help dieters to experience instant weight losses, many are not healthy for the foreseeable future
Limiting the amount ofessential nutrients required to ensure your body is working at optimum capacity, many involve cutting your calorie content to below 1,000 calories a day - if not less – over 50% your allowance.
Supported by heavy sessions in the gym and constant calorie checking, celebrity diets run the danger of causing you to feel quezy, tired, unable to concentrate and more worryingly prevent your body from working efficiently - All of which are dangerous for your health.
How can you spot a Fad diet?
Fad diets are easier to spot than you imagine. Proclaiming to offer you a immediate solution to your weight loss issues, you can easily spot a fad diet by their:
• Too good to be true claims
• Lack of clinical studies
• Deletionof one or more of the five recommended food groups
• Recommendations from studies without reviews from other researchers
When choosing a diet or weight loss supplement, it is vital to deeply research their effects first before including them into your weight loss programme. If there is no medical evidencethat they can promote quality weight loss results, then they are properly fake.
