The patient is 45 years old and is obese. He states he has been on the Atkins diet and has lost 20 pounds. What are the dangers inherent in following fad diets for quick weight loss?

Many fad diets are nutritionally unhealthy, particularly if they limit certain groups of nutrients. Some of the liquid high-protein diets contain poor-quality protein and are actually dangerous.

There is no such things as a 'quick fix' .  Yes, you may lose the weight now, but how long do you think this will last before the pounds return.

To keep the weight off requires a complete nutrition and lifestyle change.

Good Luck!  Wink
