Is Your Diet Too Good To Be True?

According to MarketData Enterprises, the number of Americans trying to lose weight in 2012 is greater than 108 million! Before you hop onto the next fad diet, here are 6 signs your diet may be too good to be true, or just plain bogus:

  1. Promises to lose extreme amounts of weight in a short time period.
  2. Requires you to take several supplements or other products daily.
  3. Requires you to eliminate whole food groups from your meal plan.
  4. Promises to clear out toxins from your body.
  5. Claims to be able to speed up your metabolism.
  6. Claims that you can lose weight without making changes in your eating or exercise habits.
