A fancy diet plan that promises drastic results in weight loss over a short span of time is called a fad diet. According to dieticians and doctors, this practice is not at all healthy and doesn’t offer a permanent solution to the weight loss dilemma people these days go through.
What to avoid?
It is best to avoid products and diet plans that promise you any of the following:
- Plans and products that claims they can help you drastically lose weight at a rate of about 1 or 2 pounds/week
- Claiming that it is possible to lose weight and stay in shape just by following the diet plan and consuming products and staying off the gym
- Restrains you from eating food for a more balanced nutrition
- Emphasizes on certain combinations of food. It is scientifically proven that eating certain kinds of food in a combination doesn’t promote weight loss
- Base their claims and so called results on photographs showing the typical before and after scenario
- Rely on endorsements from certain celebrity or existing clients for testimonials. Keep this in mind, they were offered money for their words
