America’s Obsession with Fad Diets #sponsored

We all have done it, diets…try to lose weight, gain it back, try another diet, lose weight, and gain it back. It’s a vicious cycle. I wanted to share this infographic with you, that I thought was important!

It's crazy how weight loss can lead to some crazy fads. I remember being part of the low fat craze and then a few years later it was the low carb craze. It's so hard to know what really works sometimes!

Diet and exercise are so important. A lot of these fad diets are unhealthy and actually hurt you!

I enjoyed the sarcastic tone of this infographic! I'm glad that over the years, people have become more skeptical of diets that truly seem unbelievably unhealthy and illogical. Eating healthy and exercising is probably the best way to stay fit, in my opinion!

I wish all of these would have worked. The tapeworm diet excluded! Thinking about consuming a tapeworm makes me half sick!
