There are so many fad diets out there but none have proved as successful as simply eating a balanced diet with lots of fruit and veggies and getting 30 mins of exercise each day.
Here are the 5 worst fad diets we have ever heard of.
1. The Baby Food Diet
This diet was famed by celebs for a while and consists of eating only baby food. Er, yum? While baby food may be good for babies, it’s certainly not good for grown women!
2. The Cabbage Soup Diet
Restricting yourself to one meal a day and only cabbage soup is a sure-fire way to go absolutely insane.
3. Lemon Detox
Lemon water with maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Only. For ten days. Just no, it slows down metabolism and will not be good for you.
4. The Air Diet
Putting food close to your mouth and not actually eating it. Torturous and definitely not a healthy mindset.
5. Grapefruit Diet
Similar to the cabbage soup diet but with grapefruits. Sounds repetitive, boring and pretty gross.
Remember that nothing will ever beat a long-term healthy mindset of a balanced diet and exercise.
