Fad dieting

What is a fad diet? A fad diet is a diet that promises quick weight loss through what is usually an unhealthy and unbalanced diet.

There's are a huge number of fad diets available and almost every week there seems to be a new revolutionary quick fix, there's no doubt the fad diet is the King of the dieting world. The cabbage diet, a juice fast, even the Atkins diet are nothing more than marketing gimmicks and to be honest are a complete waste of your time. A diet that is both short term and unsustainable, basically anything that doesn’t instil new and long lasting tendencies in your food intake , is not only counterproductive to your long term success but also in my opinion a fad.

Nutritionally deficient and unhealthy, fad diets are unsustainable eating plans and always fail, inevitably sending their consumer back to a more negative stage than when they began!

The message of this piece is that unfortunately there is no miracle diet, you need to take your time, be patient and most importantly build positive habits for the future not just for a short-lived stretch.
