Quick Look at Popular Diets

 
Atkins Diet
Probably the most popular fad diet to date. A low carbohydrate, high-protein diet. It restricts amount of fruit and vegetables, is low fiber (a problem potentially for gastrointestinal health) and can have adverse effects on bone health and kidney function.


Cabbage Soup Diet

Involves eating nothing but cabbage soup for at least a week. Besides being unpalatable, can be socially embarrassing as it necessitates that you carry containers of green soup with you wherever you go.

Grapefruit Diet
A 21-day, so-called "diet" of grapefruits, a little protein and not much else. Despite many ludicrous claims, grapefruit (like cabbage) does not possess any "fat-burning" properties.


The Zone

Also known as the 40-30-30 Diet, the Zone is a 40-percent carbohydrate, 30-percent protein and 30-percent fat eating plan that advocates only sparing use of grains and starches.
In Hollywood, companies deliver entire meals that allow celebrities (and other dieters with more money than sense) to stay within "The Zone."
Eat Right for Your Blood Type Diet
Offers four diet plans specific to the four blood types without offering any scientific evidence whatsoever.

The 3-Day Diet

There are several varieties. One is a cleansing diet that claims to bring you down to "normal" body weight after 3 days of eating nothing but fruit juice. Can cause constipation, dizziness, aches and pains and - surprise, surprise-extreme hunger.
