Fad diets fade fast but nutrition lasts
Smart diets and exercise are the right way to go

Fad diets are exactly what the name entails: a fad. They die out just as quickly as they come in. There’s always a new diet that promises you will reach your ideal weight in no time at all, get the perfect form or the opposite sex to notice you.
