These Are the 6 Worst Diet Fads That Should Be Avoided

1. Fast Food Diet

I’m sure you’ve seen lists of “healthy” fast food options that you can eat. A lot of people say that the “good” bad meals come from places like Taco Bell, Panda Express, Dunkin Donuts and more (I’ll let Chipotle be the loan exception here). But don’t believe it! Anything made fast wasn’t made with love or care for that matter.

2. Diet Pills

When it comes to diet pills, stay away from it like the plague! There’s no long-term benefit to using them. The main ingredient in many diet pills are stimulants that have been found to increase risk for heart attack and stroke.

Often these stimulants are prescription level drugs that have been banned from the market, but they illegally make their way back into these pills due to poor regulation of dietary supplements.

3. Eat What You Want Diet

Dr. Oz might be a fan of the Cheater’s Diet, but sorry it doesn’t work! I mean, could you imagine being faithful to your spouse during the weekdays but then cheating on him or her on the weekends? The eat-what-you-want diet is just as unrealistic.

You’ll just end up regretting every bad decision you made come Monday morning.
