Conventional wisdom about diets, including government health recommendations, seems to change all the time. And yet ads routinely come out claiming to have THE answer about what we should eat. So how do we distinguish what’s actually healthy from what advertisers just want us to believe is good for us? Mia Nacamulli gives the facts on fad diets.

    Food is such a complex topic. Calories, exercise, etc -__- it really just depends on the person……..

    ¨healthy addition to a balanced diet¨

    Hi. I loved the vid a lot! I’ve been trying to research for an awesome YouTube video like yours that really educates the ideas in this video. 👍 👌Your lesson actually reminds me of the vids of Dr. Ethan. Doctor Ethan’s demonstrations are knowledgable and I learned a lot for my practice.

    I recommend you see his YouTube out and give the doc a like here! 👉 #DoctorEthanScience

    I know this is controversial but, does skipping meals or eating less really slow down the metabolism?

    And for info about how cow’s react to the physical harms inflicted on them in the dairy industry, please see Ted-Ed’s video on animals feeling pain…
    Cows feel pain and value being alive. They also love their babies. We don’t need to be breastfed past infancy. We can live and thrive as vegans. Please do the right thing. ❤

  29. Davon Wall on July 21, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    Diet Plan called Custokebon Secrets kept showing up here on different youtube and I thought they were scam. However after my work buddy follow it, and finally lost crazy amounts of weight with it without starving herself. I’m persuaded. You should not take my word for it, search for Custokebon Secrets on google.



  30. tanmay gusain on July 21, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    So losing weight isn’t that easy..

    Я тут один со скайенга приперся?)



  32. katie russel on July 21, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Guys. lost crazy amounts of weight doesn’t need to be hard (I used to feel it did). I’ll give you some tips right now. Get a popular diet plan program called Okibetonic Secrets (do a search on google). Thanks to it I’ve lost lots of weight. I probably should not even be talking about it cause I don’t want a lot of other guys out there running the same game but whatever. I am just in a excellent mood today and so I’ll share the wealth haha.



  33. AMC HOLDER 25 on July 21, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Your 10 year old child should be proud for the animation work they did for this.



  34. Elliot Finn on July 21, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    when you get an ad about counting carbs on a video titled *How to spot a fad diet*



  35. BSC7 on July 21, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Eat balanced, don’t think about it all the time, but be aware. You can have junk food once a month or twice, but eat it with joy, not feeling guilty. Do some sport that you think is fun like tennis, football, basketball… Cardio is not that efficient and I think is pretty boring. Constant salads become unhealthy



  36. Denziel Ramos on July 21, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    What are the 3 diet fads in this video I can’t find them?



  37. Mansour Aloufi on July 21, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    I have always listened to the back voice of my head that “balance” what we wat & “ exercise” is the ultimate solution for a good healthy life . NO SHORTCUT.



  38. Guy2015 on July 21, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Vegan and Keto both qualify as Fad diets.



  39. Kottdish on July 21, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    I think the best diet is to buy a lot vegetables, cooking it by boiling, and eat a small servings of said boiled vegetable.
