About the Holiday

A fad is something temporary hence a fad diet is something you do once (be it for days or weeks) in the hopes of losing weight fast. Diets used to be a way of living and a long term solution. Rid the World of Fad Diets Day (also referred to as Gimmicks Day) points out the downside of fad diets. Many fad diets lack essential protein, vitamins and minerals. Nearly a $60 billion industry in the U.S. alone, it's no wonder how so many get hooked on the "marketing" these fad diets do. So today, decide to make permanent healthy changes in your life so the results will also be lasting.
