Trainer Tuesday- What is the most foolish fad diet you've ever heard of?

Apr 1, 2014

The most foolish fad diet that I have seen is the "water, lemon, honey, cayenne pepper for 10 days cleanse". The biggest issues I have with this diet are that it severely lacks A) nutrition of any kind and B) adequate caloric intake. To me it sounds much more like something to drink if you have a cold for a couple days than as a way to energize, revitalize, and shred fat!- Keith

The most foolish diet I have ever come across would have to be the tapeworm diet. It is undeniable that people will resort to extreme measures in a desperate attempt to shed those extra pounds. But ingesting tapeworms in order to lose weight is not only a radical method but also an extremely dangerous one. Along with this one, the cabbage soup diet and any variation of the 3-day diet claim to provide instant gratification to the dieter but have little to no scientific backing to support their protocol.-Andy
