The Atkins Diet 1
Eating all the burgers and cheese your heart desires may seem like a dieter’s dream come true, but it’s actually a cardiac nightmare. That’s because when you cut greens and carbs out of your diet, all you’re left with is artery-clogging meat and dairy products--you know, the stuff that could lead to high cholesterol levels and heart disease. And even if you don’t develop heart disease, you’ll probably get pretty backed up and become bloated. Really, is any of that worth giving up bread?
The Baby Food Diet 2
Limiting yourself to portions fit for a baby is dangerous. Smaller portions mean smaller helpings of the vitamins and minerals your adult body needs to function properly and ward off preventable diseases. Leave the baby food for your baby and treat yourself to a real meal, meant for a real, grownup woman.
The Master Cleanse Diet 3
Master Cleansers basically consume nothing but water spiked with lemon, molasses and cayenne pepper for about a week or so. Sure, people lose weight on this plan, but only because they're losing tons of muscle mass and excess water, and also because they have explosive diarhea. Not worth it.
The Five Bite Diet 5
There’s portion control, then there’s this ridiculous five bite diet. Basically, the diet consists of participants eating whatever they want, so long as they limit their nibbles to five bites per meal. It’s essentially a starvation diet in skimpy portion control’s clothing. True portion control is about striking a balance between the amount of carbs, fat, and protein your body needs to be healthy and remain active--a feat you cannot achieve in only five bites.
