Diet trends that need to disappear

There are so many diet trends to follow and most of them promise good and fast results. But make sure you stay away from the diet trends listed on our list below.

Military diet

With the promise of helping you lose weight in no time (precisely 5kg per week), the military diet is extremely dangerous! The diet plan involves a 3-day meal plan followed by 4 days off, and you need to repeat this till you achieve your desired weight. Before you say it sounds okay and practical, check out the diet plan in detail below;

The military diet is okay if you follow it for a certain period of time, but you are at risk of nutrient deficiency if you’re planning to follow this diet forever.

The ketogenic diet

Originally, prescribed in the 1920s as a treatment for epilepsy, ketogenic is low-carb and high-fat diet. Since you’re going to be eating very limited carbs, your body will go into a metabolic state called ketosis, a process that happens when your body begins to burn fat for energy because it does not have enough carbohydrates to burn.

5:2 diet

5:2 diet is an intermittent fasting method. For this diet, 5 refers to the days where you are allowed to eat ‘normally’ and you need to restrict your calorie intake to 500-600 calories for 2 days. This will cause your body to burn all fat in storage. There is no information on what you are allowed to consume during those 2 days. The restriction will result in overeating!

The clean eating diet

No doubt this is a good diet however, it is not very practical unless everybody in this world decides to switch to this diet. You are not allowed to have sugar, artificial sweeteners, dairy, grains, legumes (including peanuts and peanut butter) or alcohol for 30 days and if you accidentally neglect, you have to start the 30-day cycle all over again. Imagine if you have an important lunch meeting with potential clients on your 29th day of this diet…
