Fad Diets Through the Decades…

Fad Diets Through the Decades…

In this day, fad diets are anything but new. They have come and gone for years – and years.  Let’s have some fun and take a walk down memory lane of various “Fad Diets” from the 1920’s to 2020. The truth is there are way more diets than I am sharing, but these are among the most popular and/or craziest over the past 100 years.

Bottom Line

I would love to say that we have learned a lot over the many decades in regard to weight loss.  It seems that in many instances, history just keeps repeating itself. However, as we begin 2020, I am going to remain hopeful and optimistic. One day, we can finally learn as a society that in order to lose weight (and keep it off) we need to make sustainable lifestyle changes and not begin yet another fad diet.
