Ditch the fad diet, it doesn't work [infographic]

Ditch the fad diet it doesnt work infographic

Let's discuss in the comments below:
How do you support customers trying these and other diets?

At some basic level, I think we all know that fad diets don’t work. Sure, in the short term you may notice your jeans getting a bit looser after trying Paleo, Atkins or Alkaline. Eating less processed foods, fewer calories and simply growing more conscious about what you’re consuming will inevitably cause a little weight loss. But if we’re talking about lifestyle changes for a sustainable, healthy future, chances are an organized diet won't fit the bill. Eat low fat? You might need more omega-3s. Too much protein, and your kidneys could suffer. Low carb, and your energy levels plummet.

This infographic scrutinizes a few popular diets and outlines their benefits and drawbacks. My takeaway? Balance!
