Obesity in the United States of America has been growing to the status of an epidemic for the past few decades and the americans are doing anything in their power to fight it. Shedding those extra pounds of weight is fast becoming the new American Dream.
One of the many things that have gained a lot of popularity over the years is of course fad diets that unknown to those who go through them, do them more harm than good. It was in the year 1863, that the British Undertaker announced of the first known fad diet that he incidentally called the 'Banting Diet' that included low carbs, high protein and a lot of liquor.
Present time have seen many a diets come and fade away but none have been as useful as they have been put out to be.
