Fad diets to avoid

by Sonali Anand Verma (2021-11-28)

The good weather is here and everyone is waiting for the summer to look the best type. The countdown to the “bikini operation” means, for many, practicing physical exercise and a healthy diet in just under a month. But beware! not all diets are healthy. Especially those fad diets that usually appear as the answer to your prayers: lose a lot of weight in a short time.

These studies will enable you to know what type of diet is needed in each type of training according to its intensity.

Avoid these 5 fad diets

While it is true that interest in healthy eating has increased, so is the emergence of fad diets or miracle diets. These types of diets often have little or no scientific basis, so they can even harm people’s health. Identifying them is easy. They are usually promoted by a famous person and promise impossible challenges.

As the British Dietetic Association (BDA) points out, there are currently five diets that should be avoided at all costs. These are the alkaline diet, the raw vegan diet, the ketogenic diet, the pioppi and the diet known by the model Katie Price, based on nutritional supplements.

Finally, we recommend that you consult a specialist so that they can guide you and help you in the correct way. Ah! And remember that when it comes to health and well-being, Collaborative Research Group takes better care of you.
