5 Fad Diets that may be extremely bad for you

 
What is the number one thing you do when you are trying to lose inches off your waist? Tame your eating habits and ultimately, even try a new diet plan. But in reality, diet plans are not "one-size-fits-all".

Crash diet 
All diets work differently for people. And there is nothing like a bad diet plan which can do the opposite and ruin your health. Here are five diets, which, though popular, maybe extremely bad for your body.
 
Paleo diet 
Paleo diet wants you to go back to the older days and eat as your ancestors did- by solely depending on root vegetables, nuts, seeds, and animal products ditching the processed and modern-day foods. This might sound very practical and feasible but nutritionists say it is a very bad idea to do so.
 
Acid alkaline diet 
The acid-alkaline diet is a highly talked about diet which pressurizes the body to increase the acid content in the body and the pH levels at minimum energy levels. By increasing your intake of acidic fruits, nuts, and seeds, eliminates a lot of protein and carb sources. The resulting weight loss may be speedy but derives the body of the needed nutrition as you do away with an entire food idea. It is definitely a bad idea to go this extreme just to get a couple of kilos off your waistline.
 
Juice cleanses 
Of all diet plans and quick fixes, going on a juice cleanse is thought to be the best and the quickest way to detox the body and boost the weight loss mission. However, if you planning to do so, please don't. Going on a juice fast or cleanse derives the body of getting actual nutrients which you can get out of veggies and fruits. While you may think that following a detox diet as such may make you feel fresh and clean, the benefits only last for a little while. Soon enough, you start to feel tired, exhausted and suffer from headaches and extreme 'hangry' pangs. 

Whole 30 diet 
Fad diets rarely work for good. And, when it is a diet plan which promises to get you in shape in a limited period of time at the expense of getting all tired and exhausted, it is definitely not a good one. Whole 30 is a diet fueled by social media users which can apparently make you lose up to 15 kgs in 30 days. What the diet advises is to include only certain foods in your diet and maintain 'food rules', rather than eliminating food groups entirely. This, again, compromises your digestive system and disturbs the GI index. It can also lead to hormonal mismatch, slow metabolism, and many other issues.
 
Keto diet
Keto, the most popular diet on the menu might also be a little problematic. We tell you why. Keto is backed up by a lot of celebs and that is reason enough for people to follow it. Originated for people suffering from epilepsy, it soon became a fad diet for people who wanted to lose weight fast and promote fat loss by forcing the body to go into ketosis and burn the fat as fuel. You might lose weight following Keto but do remember this point - this diet promotes eating a high concentrate of unhealthy fat and surprisingly lesser carb concentrate, thereby compromising on the quality of the foods you eat.
