There is very little that is good about this diet, except for the fact that you will be eating quite a few vegetables in the cabbage soup along with fruit each day. You will lose weight, but in an unhealthy and possibly dangerous way.

No health expert has backed the cabbage soup diet.

5. Lemon Detox Diet

In other words, it’s the master cleanse diet. It’s a modified juice fast that permits no food, substituting tea and lemonade made with maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Some fans of the diet claim that it detoxifies the body and removes excess fat.

But I’ve got bad news: there is no scientific evidence that the diet removes any toxins, or that it achieves anything beyond temporary weight loss. So forget about it.

6. The Low-Fat Diet

A low fat diet does not mean low in calorie. Many people load up on low fat candy, cookies and pretzels without regard to portion sizes. While they are eating less fat, they may be consuming more processed sugars and carbohydrates such as white flour, which are high in calories and can eventually be converted into and stored as fat within the body.
