The Cookie Diet. The Cabbage Soup Diet. The Grapefruit Diet. Every diet season, new fads emerge that promise fast weight loss with little effort. Likewise, fitness trends pop up that promise to reshape your body and supercharge your metabolism in two weeks flat. But smart dieters know these are often empty promises that only lead to yo-yo dieting.
Whether it’s a diet or fitness trend, if it sounds too good to be true, it likely is, says Kim Lyons, a former trainer on NBC’s hit show The Biggest Loser. “A lot of people forgo common sense when it comes to fad diets and fitness trends, because they want to believe they will work,” she says. Although you may be able to lose weight eating, for instance, only grapefruit, such a restrictive diet is neither sustainable nor healthy.
But some recent trends may actually be worth your time — if you approach them the right way, Lyons says. Read on to find out which trends to consider for your health.
