Fad Diets for Weight Loss: Why They Don’t Work

In our society, nothing is more heavily advertised than the to-good-to-be-true promises made by companies who are promoting the latest and greatest fad diets for weight loss.

Often, fad diets promise you unbelievable weight loss results with the least amount of effort that often leave your body starved of essential nutrients.

One of the reasons why most people think fad diets work is because they often see weight loss results right away. This is either because they took a "magic pill" along with a skimpy diet, or they lived day-by-day on a strictly liquid diet.

BistroMD's founding physician, Dr. Caroline Cederquist, explains why fad diets don't work, and what the right kind of weight loss diet can do for you.

You never want to sacrifice your health in order to experience rapid weight loss. The latest diets may seem promising, but don't be fooled by the gimmicks.

Before starting any diet, it's always important that you do your research and that you consult with your physician before trying anything.
