Atkins, South Beach, The Zone. No matter what the name, there are certain diets that everyone knows and recognizes. Some people love them, others hate them, but most have a proven plan of success that isn’t threatening to your health. (even if you disagree with the strategy) A real diet is one that is sustainable and easy to maintain within your lifestyle preferences. And then there are those other diets. Call them fads or quick fixes, but they are the last thing your body needs. Here are 11 of the worst diets ever created and their over-the-top approaches to help you lose weight.
Baby Food Diet
There are celeb diets, and there are “celeb diets.” The Baby Food Diet was created by popular trainer Tracey Anderson, who has trained stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, and Jake Gyllenhaal. But she also gets credit for creating this diet, which emphasizes eating up to 14 jars of baby food per day—and then enjoying a “real” dinner (if you desire). Considering that baby food is very low in calories, it’s easy to see how anyone would be able to lose weight on such a plan. But the plan has also been criticized because of a lack of nutrients for adults, and potentially increasing the likelihood of binging.
