The problem with fad diets

Better than a fad

Signs of a fad

  • Promises quick weight loss
  • Promotes magical or miracle foods (I think all foods in nature are a miracle)
  • Focuses on only one food, i.e. the cabbage diet
  • It says you can lose weight while eating unhealthy food and avoiding exercise
  • It doesn’t leave you feeling energized or healthy
  • It is an eating plan that is impossible to stick with for a lifetime
  • Eliminates one food group

What can you do?

  • Get your head in the game and work on your mindset for change first.  Find what is important to you, develop confidence,  and increase your motivation to make new habits.  If you are not sure how there is a quiz at that can help.
  • Skip sodas and poor-quality food
  • Eat more health-promoting foods
  • Eat only as much as you need to meet your daily energy requirements
  • Move more
  • Be patient and go slow
