Think a fad diet is a good idea? You may want to rethink it after you see these pics.
Fad diets; a new one pops up every month or so. Lemon detox diet, the 5:2 diet and the baby food diet are just some of restrictive food practices followed by those of us who want to lose weight fast. While dietitians and health professionals (including myself) tout the negatives of following fad diets, our warnings often go unheard. The claims of quick weight loss seduce many people to succumb to the idea of minimal effort for instant gratification with little regard for the impact on their health. We read and hear all the negatives about the numerous fad diets on the market, but the idea of only drinking a lemon concoction for seven days or eating nothing but baby food doesn’t seem strange or unhealthy when the prize is weight loss. But, what about if the small quantity of food contained in these fad diets was visualised? Would this have us questioning our eating habits and the safety of these diets? LA-based photographer Stephanie Gonot thinks it will, which is why she has shot her “Fad Diets” series. Take a look for yourself to see exactly what some of the most popular fad diets entail and see whether they really healthy and something you can stick to long-term.
Just something to consider; the best diet is the one that you can stick to.
Do fad diets seem even crazier now?
