11 Ding-Dong Fad Diets That Have Been Rightfully Lost To Time
Fad diets come and go, and sometimes it takes a distance of time to realize how ridiculous some dieting trends we got swept up in can be.
While there’s money to be made, the weight loss industry will continue to hate the idea of people (especially women) taking up space. For as long as the beauty standards have dictated people ‘should’ be thin, people have been willing to go to wild lengths to fit within dangerous and, often unhealthy, unrealistic body shapes. Many weight loss trends parade as “health-oriented”, but these historic examples show us that it has always been about the money to be made from being told you need to dislike your body than caring about public health. If it were about health, a doctor would certainly have not recommended six cups of buttermilk a day… or any of these ten other pretty horrifying examples… We beg you not to get any ideas.
