Today is Rid The World of Fad Diets Day.
What is a fad diet?
- A diet that gets really popular and then falls out of favor.
- Offers a quick fix
- Eliminates food groups
There have been so many over the years, so I thought I list a few a get your input how many of these have you tried and what were your results?
- Atkins – For this diet how much bacon and pork rinds did you eat?
- Cabbage Soup — Really — I mean don’t you only eat that on St. Patrick’s day?
- The Zone Diet — 30/30/30 — I tried and let me tell could keep the math straight.
- Grapefruit Diet — when you eat these combined with a protein it will burn fat.
- South Beach — This diet is like the energizer bunny! I think I will have to come up with a new category for this one.
