If you scroll through social media, you are bound to see hundreds or even thousands of posts about FAD diets, juice cleanses, detox teas and tons of other products marketed to promote rapid weight loss.
Dieting is a 72 billion dollar a year industry in the United States, so it is no wonder why diet culture marketing is so prevalent.
But what is a FAD diet? And how do you tell if you are following one?
Here are 3 signs that you are following a FAD diet.
- You have to cut out an entire food group to follow the diet. FAD diets are typically very restrictive.
- You are replacing real foods with supplements or shakes.
- Recommendations that promise a quick fix. FAD Diets usually promise dramatic results over a small period of time but don’t result in long-term weight loss.
With countless diets out there, we understand how overwhelming it can feel not knowing what diet is right for you.
The truth is that you don’t need another “diet”. The key to long term success is using a sustainable, habit-based approach to consistently build healthier routines into their life, one step at a time.
