Want to know about the best fad diets? Curious about diets that actually work and fad diets that work fast? Read on! You may be surprised by this information about top fad diets.
All those diets that promise weight loss, bikini bodies, and better health? Your head might be spinning with all the options. But what really works and what doesn't? And which ones are safe?
Diets like the Mediterranean diet have stood the test of time, but what newer eating styles like keto, intermittent fasting, and Whole30? And what about the carnivore diet and even WW, the new iteration of Weight Watchers?
My calendar has been pretty booked chatting with the media about all these diets and answering client questions about what works and what doesn't! So if you need a little guidance, too, have no fear. I'll give you the inside scoop on all these eating styles and more! I'll also tell you which fad diets to skip right on over.
I have to confess something first,
though. The headline of this post, "What are the best fad diets?" is a trick question. Simply put, there are no best fad diets. When it comes to losing weight and keeping it off, your best
bet is adopting lasting lifestyle changes.
I know this may not be what you want to hear. But my job isn't to gloss over the science and lie to you. My job is to help you get healthier in a way that's going to make you feel good and that's going to last.
This is why I'm sharing with you today how to lose weight and keep it off, including superfood trends actually worth following. I'm also going to tell you about some horrible fad diets that I'd love for you to skip. Ready? Let's get started.
Nutritionists Say This
is the Worst Diet Advice
Before we get into the diet advice you should follow, I'm going to tell you about the advice you should absolutely ignore. As a bride to be, I've been immersed in all things wedding lately. So some pretty scary weight-loss tactics mentioned in online bride groups got me very concerned, and that's why I wrote this article for Food Network.
Many of these strategies can put your health at risk, which is the opposite of what you're looking to accomplish with a weight-loss plan. While this post is wedding focused, the advice on weight-loss tips to skip applies to everyone!
Say no to starvation diets! I give the scoop on the best (and worst) fads for weight loss in my EverydayHealth.com article. Pssst...there are some sustainable plans that actually work, such as a Mediterranean lifestyle.
12 Healthiest, High-Fat Foods
You Should be Eating
When people ask me how to lose weight and keep it off, my answer is pretty simple: Eat a diet rich in lean proteins, healthy fats, veggies, fruit, and whole grains. It sounds pretty simple, right? Many folks are afraid of eating fatty foods, but the fact is they're good for you (when eaten in moderation!).
And the fats they contain actually help you absorb other important nutrients. This is why I put together this Reader's Digest list of the healthiest high-fat foods out there, including info on portion control. Learn about seeds for weight loss, too.
When you're hungry, you want something delicious and filling, right? I like to prepare high-protein meals and snacks that help me feel energized and satisfied all day long. Ready to get healthy without going hungry?

Amy's Recipe of
the Week: Mango Overnight Oats
Are oats good for weight loss? Yup! Just a second ago, I mentioned how important it is to eat a balance of healthy food groups. This overnight oats recipe provides exactly that balance. You get protein from the Greek yogurt; fiber from the oats, mango, and bananas; and healthy fat from the almonds. All three of these nutrients help you feel fuller for longer, which helps you cut down on unnecessary snacking! Love overnight oat recipes? Also try pistachio high-protein overnight oats.
