Written by Angel Fonseca RD CDE Cleanses, detox, alkaline diet, cabbage soup diet, raw food diet and negative-calorie foods. What do these have in common? They provide you with short term weight loss, can be dangerous to your health, difficult to follow and have arbitrary rules. In our society, we tend to focus on appearance, weight being at the top of the list. It’s no surprise millions of people fork out thousands of dollars to diets and weight-loss products. Everyday a new “quick fix-miracle” diet is ready to provide weight loss with minimum effort. My question to you is: if these worked, why does the weight loss industry keep coming out with more? If it’s a “miracle” diet or product, why is there more than one on the shelf? The truth is because there is NO magic solution. There are no pills or foods that magically burn fat while you sit on the couch eating chips. Sorry!
