Semantics of what is a "fad diet"
I was talking to my sister today about my eating habits and she thought that high protein was a fad diet. She proceeded to tell me that she was involved with some diet that told her she could only eat eggs and grapefuit before noon, and one candy bar after noon and before dinner. We spent about 10 minutes discussing fad diets. I was trying to convince her that my diet was normal and her diet was a fad.
After this conversation I began thinking about fad diets and what diet parameters are considered normal and which might be considered fads.
What do you consider normal diet parameters and what would you consider to be a fad?
