If you look up the word “fad” in the dictionary, it will come up with something along the lines of an intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something, esp. one that is short-lived and without basis in the object’s qualities; a craze. Now why on earth would you trust your diet, which is one of the basic needs for your good health, to a craze? To something that will fade away eventually. The secret to weight loss is not to avoid carbs, fats, yellow foods, solid foods, or food that starts with the letter “P”. The real trick is to lower your daily intake by about 100 calories if you can. You’ll hardly notice the difference, but it will add up in the long run to the tune of about 10 lbs a year. And when it comes to your health, you really need to think in the long run.
Stick to the basics when it comes to your diet. Lower your calorie intake, watch your portion size, eat fresh foods, stay away from fast foods and processed foods and stay clear of fad diets that will come and go. A good, balanced diet is always the key to staying healthy.
