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.
Eat What You Want Diet
Have you ever read a book and wondered about the accuracy of the content? That’s a question many people asked after reading “Calories Don’t Count,” by Dr. Herman Taller. On the surface the diet seemed very “Paleo-like” with an approach that consisted of eating foods packed with fat and protein and avoiding all carbs. But there was one little caveat: You also had to eat all foods with a vegetable oil pill, which was supposed to promote fat loss. The pill didn’t do as promised, and the doctor was later convicted of mail fraud and conspiracy linked to his product.
