Best Answer

A lot of people are drawn to 'Fad' diets because, if they are looking at losing a few kilos or they have been on a yo-yo diet trend for many years, the latest 'fad' could be the one they are waiting for. The only problem with the fad diets is that most of them are not sustainable for a long period of time, and depending on the type of fad, they may be starving their body of essential nutrients and vitamins. Best advice, good balanced diet, and of you're going to have a treat, do it in moderation. And if possible, reduce or remove the sugar in your diet. Hope this helps!
