Fads That Are Fakes
There are multiple famous diets such as the Atkins and the South Beach Diet that claim that you lose anywhere from 8-13 pounds the first week but what they don't tell you is that these diets will fail to keep that weight off forever. The South Beach is constructed to make you feel like there is hardly any difference in your everyday diet, it consists of 3 meals a day plus 2 snacks. The Atkins however constricts the amount you take in calorie wise and carb wise. The bottom line though is that both diets make the body's hormononal levels uneven and by doing that the body tries to steady it's self and in that process loses weight. Once the person that was on the diet goes back to their normal lives, the weight they lost will make a come back and they are back at square one.
