Individuals are always looking for a quick fix diet this typically leads them to a fad diet. Many of these diets have risk factors associated with using them. A fad diet is any diet that promises unrealistic weight loss or other health advantages that may promote a longer life without any scientific backing.
Like discussed above a typical fad diet plan will promote unrealistic weight loss, for example losing 10 pounds in a week. Other programs may promote unhealthy eating habits that don’t meet nutritional requirements, but not adequately meeting said requirements an individual could suffer physiologically. Typically as a result from programs like this an individual may experience weight loss but really its only water weight and lean muscle mass. It’s hard for anyone individual to maintain a diet that restricts their food choices, therefore individuals typically don’t maintain programs like these and will gain back weight and then some.
