The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics warns against diets that claim:
- To help you lose a lot of weight quickly.
- That you can eat huge amounts of certain foods, such as cabbage soup or grapefruit.
- That you should follow restrictive, rigid meal plans that don't allow for flexibility or variety.
- That you don't need to exercise to lose weight.
