10 Fad Diets You Should NOT Follow

We all have tried those crazy diets hoping for a quick weight loss without working out. Sometimes it worked
and sometimes it didn’t but the weight lost is actually water weight. Those diets are harsh, unbalanced, unhealthy
and the weight loss is usually temporary. Here are some of fad diets you should NOT follow:

  1. The Five-Bite Diet
    Eating less to lose weight and instead of counting calories, you count the bites you eat.

 

  1. The Baby Food Diet
    Basically replacing a meal or two or snacks with baby food jars aiming to eat less calories.

 

  1. The Master Cleanse
    Considered to be a detoxifying diet as you eat only fruits and vegetable for three days. Not providing your body
    with the essential fats and proteins for a healthy balanced diet.

 

  1. The Cabbage Soup Diet

    a healthy lifestyle.

    and protein promoting “unrealistic promise of easy weight loss.

    nutritional deficiencies.
