Semantics of what is a "fad diet"
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?

Well, everything, every eating plan is a "diet" though the term diet is associated with a lack of calories, in general...talk about a diet for a newcomer to BBing, that doesn't understand that you can have muscle building and fat loss styled diets and they get confused by the notion, mostly because "diet" has generally meant "eat less" or "restrict food groups".
So, diet is anything we eat, IMO, I tend not to use the term at all if I can help it, saves issues.
Fad diets would be the extreme of the weird diets, for me, after all, each diet has it's inherent rules, eat less, eat celery before noon (made that up ), eat carbs until noon, eat lots of wind producing fibre, chew your milk...etc; so, for me a fad diet is a diet that ends on the the very extreme end of the diet range, other than that they're all just different and nothing more.
