Obesity is a growing epidemic in the US today. Many individuals dealing with weight issues are lured into trying fad diets marketed by the weight loss industry. Today, individuals without weight issues, also try these diets for various beliefs on health benefits. However, many of these diets are often untested and may cause more harm than good. Learn about the current trends in fad diets versus healthy eating approaches. Hear about the top 5 fad diets and when they may not be the best options. This talk will also focus on recommendations regarding food intake for optimal health. Join Kavita H.
