Most Popular Diets of 2012

Number 19: Raspberry Ketones

2011 Rank: No Rank

This newcomer to the Most Popular Diets list is no surprise; frankly, we expected to see it appear higher than position 19. When Dr. Oz boldly claimed that this (among five other pills this year) was a miracle weight loss/fat burner on his show, it was all supplement producers could do to keep it in stock.

Ketones are the compounds in raspberries that give the fruit their aroma and are commonly used as a food additive in the US. However, in Japan, they are a highly marketed weight loss supplement. Certainly something worth importing, right? Well, Dr. Oz thought so and now millions of people are trying to reach their weight loss goals with yet another pill without a modicum of diet, fitness, or lifestyle change.

Our dietitian, Mary Hartley, RD, dismissed the newest diet fad-in-a-bottle as nothing more than TV hype.
