Sure, most fads are silly to some extent, but fad diets are often next-level bonkers. And once you're a few years removed from these diets, they seem even stranger in the light of modern nutritional understanding. In fact, there are many ridiculous fad diets that should never come back and, hopefully, will stay in the past.
Of course, future generations will probably look back on today's eating habits and find plenty of things to ridicule. But it does not feel like many current eating plans are on the same level as these old-school fad diets. Many of these once popular diets focus on one food at the expense of most, if not all, others. But this leads to a boring and more or less impossible eating plan. I mean, if you are what you eat, why would you want to be cabbage soup?
Although these diets and their claims may sound fantastic, it's a good idea to remember that there is no easy fix that will change your body overnight. Basically, there's a good reason these diets did not become the mainstream food plans of choice. Look back at these silly fad diets and be thankful that you likely have much better nutritional options today.
