Fad diets are making an extreme presence these days. I can’t even buy Epsom salts from the local grocery store without finding the term ‘gluten free’ written on the bag (true story!).
But this isn’t anything new.
Back in the 90’s, dietitians answered lots of questions about the low fat craze, which suggested that removing all fat from the diet would remove all the fat from your hips.
Just like many other fad diets that remove entire food groups or specific foods from the diet, problems are not solved with lasting results. The unwanted weight most likely returns when the diet ends.
Fat fits into several different categories. You have unsaturated fats, saturated fats, and trans fats.
