Bangalore: The results that fad diets offer are quick fixes for weight loss. But even if they do work, they are short term and the oodles of weight come bouncing right back. But sticking to fad diets on a long term basis may harm you as they are nutritionally unbalanced and are based on ghastly or bizarre ideas, like "The Sleeping Beauty Diet" where you knock yourself out for several days at a time with sedatives.

Pasta Chocolate Diet:

You know how the saying goes, "If it's too good to be true, then it probably is" and that is more or less the case here. The only thing you can drink is water and the one ounce of chocolate at the end of the day is the only chocolate you get to eat as an evening bite, with popcorn that is. The best thing about the diet is that it allows you to eat pasta for lunch or dinner. Sugar, alcohol, beverages, nuts and all junk foods that you can list excluding popcorn, fried foods, dairy products, salt, and red meat are barred. The chocolate pasta diet restricts important nutrients with a reward of an ounce of chocolate.
