Fad Diets – Why Are They Bad?

Sure, you’re looking for a way to lose weight quickly, but ask yourself this: Fad diets … why are they? I mean, how bad can they be if everyone is trying them and they’ve become so popular?

Well, let’s set the record straight once and for all. If you value your health as much as I do you want to be very careful how you look for a method to lose weight quickly. No amount of rapid weight loss is worth ruining your health over. So let’s take a look at some of the popular fad diets. Why are they bad?

First of all there is the Atkins diet.

When asked about this diet, the President of the American College of Nutrition said, “Of all the bizarre diets that have been proposed in the last 50 years, this is the most dangerous to the public if followed for any length of time.” OK, I think that sums it up pretty well. No point in beating around the bush, doc. The chief health officer for the state of Maryland compared this diet to “taking an overdose of sleeping pills.” Those are very encouraging words for someone looking for a quick and easy way to lose weight.

The Cabbage Soup Diet

As much as I love cage, this is one diet that is very easy to deny. I’m not going to even get into the amount of gas this produces. I’ll just let it go by saying you do not want to be in public when you are looking to lose weight now. This plan claims that cage is a “super food” and if you live on this your weight will plummet as if by magic. Let’s cut to the chase … this just does not work because it is not true. There are no super foods. You have to eat a well-balance diet or your health will suffer, bottom line.

Well, what does work?

So, we’ve talked about a couple of bad fad diets. Why are they bad? It’s because they either are a load of … hokum, or they will seriously harm your health. There is, however, something that has literally been around for thousands of years. One of the best ways of losing weight is by proper food combining. You can actually lose up to 14 pounds in as little as 11 days just by knowing which foods combine well with each other.
