Why Fad Diets Never Work

Fad diets do not work. Period. Some may seem incredibly easy or claim you will lose significant weight in a short time frame, however many reasons point to why fad diets are just that: fads. Learn why you should always eschew fad options in favor of healthy food choices, exercise, and Phentermine 37.5mg.

State Of Starvation

These diets frequently have the opposite effect!

“Ironically, one of the more common side effects of fad diets is often weight gain. Your body believes itself to be in [a] state of starvation and attempts to hang on to every calorie in a survival attempt,” says Candice Seti, PsyD, CPT, CNC and founder of The Weight Loss Therapist.


Shedding weight too quickly dehydrates the body because you are losing water weight instead of fat. Dehydration from lack of water weight causes a variety of health problems if left unchecked, including muscle cramps and headaches–and those are examples of minor issues.

Not Enough Nutrients

Fad diets often not only severely restrict your food intake, they limit the amount of nutrients your body receives per day.

“If a diet cuts out an entire food group or pushes anything in an extreme way, [like] no fat, no carbs, super low calorie, only eat these five things, etc.—chances are it’s not healthy,” notes Dr. Seti.

A diet high in vegetables is the much healthier weight loss option, as veggies contain fiber, vitamins, minerals, water, and antioxidants to give your body the energy it needs to burn fat.

Muscle Loss

Fad diets are usually advertised as quick alternatives to exercise. Yes, not everyone likes to exercise, however losing weight without working out results in serious muscle loss. Lean muscle tissue is essential to weight loss because it stimulates the body’s metabolism.

These are just some of the problems fad diets create!
