 Fad Diets Information from WebMD Weight Loss Clinic
While fad diets can provide a quick fix, this type of weight loss is often difficult to maintain because it's based on unrealistic eating patterns like eliminating foods or even an entire food group from your diet.
Unfortunately, most of them, in their efforts to succeed, involve omitting certain foods, and sometimes even entire food groups (for example, high protein diets suggest eliminating carbohydrates, a significant element of the recommended eating guidelines based on the food pyramid).
Fad diets take form in many ways: low-fat, low carbohydrates, high protein or focusing on one particular food item such as grapefruit.
