People have been searching for the ultimate diet for decades.

They are looking for a quick way to lose weight, which is what each of the 8 fad diets listed below promise.

Not only do fad diets promise a dramatic drop in weight, but they also severely limit the types of food that can be consumed, and thereโ€™s never any mention about consulting a doctor before beginning the Wonder Diet.

Iโ€™m sure youโ€™ve heard of most of these fad diets, but donโ€™t fall for them.

The results are only temporary and the diets often arenโ€™t teaching you to have better choices in nutrition.

8. Cambridge Diet

This liquid diet only supplies you with 400 calories per day.

Having such a severe restriction on calories can cause a loss in nutrients.2

To compensate for this loss, supplements of vitamins and minerals, as well as fatty acids are added to the daily intake of liquid.

The Cambridge Diet was very popular in the early 1980s, but has since slacked off a bit.

Anyone on this diet is basically gaining the weight loss benefits starvation provides, while protecting muscles from deterioration with the right amount of protein.

7. Zone Diet

Dr.

Barry Sears, a biochemist, is the creator of this diet.2

The formula used for every meal consists of 30 percent fats, 30 percent protein, and 40 percent carbohydrates.

Some people find this diet too complex to follow, while others find it to be one of the most perfect diets around.

There are very few reports about people feeling hungry or fatigued while on this diet.

6. 3 Day Diet

This is one of the shortest fad diets around.

While weight loss often does occur, most people gain the weight right back after returning to their normal eating habits.

People usually lose weight because of the sudden drop in calories, most of which is from water loss.

There are a number of menus to follow, so itโ€™s hard to say if one is healthier than others.
