Losing weight can be a long difficult process, even though we all know the benefits are numerous. We live in a society that values quick-fixes and instant gratification, and dieting is something that offers neither of these things. People will try all kinds of strange and extreme things to lose weight fast, and we’ve seen it all. At DietsInReview.com, we try to steer people clear of bad diets, fad diets and downright dangerous diets. These diets are often ineffective or impossible to sustain. We don’t want our readers to try anything that’s a waste of money, a waste of time or even unhealthy.
From scams, like miracle drugs, to dangerous eating plans like the Kimkins diet, we’ve rounded up the worst diets we’ve come across.
In the end, the best diets are the ones that help you lead a healthier, fuller life. They are not quick fixes, but involve fundamentally changing the way you eat, and even the way you think about food.
