Are fad diets safe?
How many diets have you tried over the years? Fad diets are everywhere, and there is no sign that they are going anywhere anytime soon. Although the diets change from time to time, there are some definite trends that you’ll always see come back around, like low fat and low calorie.
Fad diets are not necessarily unsafe. But everyone is different, and the diet that is right for one person may not be right for someone else. It is important that you focus more on overall nutrition and developing healthy eating habits.
Fad diets are also effective on a temporary basis. You are likely to lose weight either very quickly or not at all. If you are following a low-fat diet and your body really needs that fat to function properly, you might not lose weight at all. On the other hand, you could reach your goals quickly.
