It is a common belief that fad diets are extremely efficient in losing weight and that’s why they have gained immense popularity among people worldwide. Most of these diets promise drastic weight loss and even assure of health benefits, but the reasons not all of these claims have guaranteed results. Certain scientific reasons fit the bill since these diets are planned around how the body functions.

It is also often said that these diets are not good in the long run, because they cause deficiencies, but that is not completely true. Practicing proper weaning off is a must while you transition back into your normal diet for the sustenance of the results. Also, before you directly jump into any of these FAD diets, it is highly advised to consult with your doctor to ensure that they’ll be safe for your body type.

Opting for an extremely intense diet should never become a lifestyle, but should be practiced only to achieve the desired weight loss and then one should transition back into their regular diet. These diets also provide several health benefits including regulating glucose metabolism, decreasing LDL, managing hypertension, and reversing PCOD.

If you Google FAD diets right now, it’ll say “weight loss plans that promise dramatic results but are unhealthy for the body in the long run.” And to break it down to you all, let me tell you that THIS IS NOT 100% TRUE.

One should not simply opt for a diet plan because it is trendy but should consult the experts and discuss their end goals. Everybody is different and even if your health goals are the same, the ways of achieving them will be different. And with this blog, I will try to break down a few of the most popular FAD Diets and how you can opt for them in a healthy and doable manner.

Talking about the trendiest and the most popular diet plans of the season, Keto, Paleo, and Intermittent Fasting would top my list. Not having these plans ruled 2020, they still have a long way to go and it’s because they do give out the “dramatic results” they promise, but WITHOUT compromising with the health of our clients. Here, take a look at pros and cons of these various fad diets

Keto Diet

Keto is a strict but extremely effective and scientifically sound diet. It’s a high-fat, low-carb diet where the liver produces ketone bodies from the breakdown of fat. Food items like full-fat cottage cheese, oil, butter, and ghee become a part of your regular meals, while carbohydrates and sugar are kept at bay. A keto diet is good for people who are suffering from epilepsy or Type 2 diabetes because it helps in reducing weight and inflammation. The diet is rich in protein, and fats. In most cases, a keto diet is not recommended for people suffering from Thyroid or PCOD/PCOS. Keto should not become your lifestyle choice. Ideally, it should be done for a span of a maximum of 3 months at a stretch as a lot of essential vitamins and minerals are missing out on this diet.

Paleo Diet

A paleo diet is basically going back to the roots and eating what our ancestors used to eat in earlier times. According to researchers, our ancestors ate a diet that consisted majorly of whole foods. Eating whole food reduces the chances of obesity, diabetes, and heart diseases. A paleo can be a good lifestyle choice as it removes processed food from your diet completely. It also excludes dairy products and gluten from your diet, making it easy for your body to digest food. It is ideal for those suffering from Thyroid, PCOD/PCOS, or diabetes. It is a diet rich in protein, carbohydrates, fats, and is great for weight loss. 

Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is a process of striking the perfect balance between eating and fasting. Follow the standard 16:8 ratio, where the person fasts for 16 hours and eats for the rest of the 8 hours. This diet plan is great because it helps in controlling the insulin level and shedding the extra weight. It is 100% scientific and can be practiced by everyone. Since the body has no access to food for 16 hours, it breaks down every ounce of carbohydrates present in the body to convert it into energy. This results in zero fat deposits in the body.  Anybody and everybody can practice intermittent fasting because it is a scientifically proven and healthy method to lose weight. Although we would recommend you to consult your nutritionist just to be sure.

FAD Diets can be called “tricky” instead of “faulty” because everybody reacts differently to different diet plans. Reach out to an experienced nutritionist for the best advice.
