Fad Dieting

Jaralen Andrews



    Fad dieting is a growing problem in our society; it is a problem because a fad diet doesnít help a person to change their bad habits that have caused their overweight condition.  A fad diet is simply a quick fix to a problem that requires a change in a personís diet, exercise routine, and lifestyle.  Obviously it is easier to take a pill or drink a liquid to lose weight, but if the product isnít improving the users lifestyle the product hasnít helped them, but it could have hurt.  These diets havenít solved any of Americaís problems, but have given our society an easy way out. Then end result may be more harmful then the help they provided by getting a woman into a dress for a party.  The end result of fad diets is ďyo-yoĒ dieting, which is simply a vicious cycle of losing and gaining weight
