9 Unhealthy Fad Diets You Should Never Try (2 of 3)

Alkaline Diet

The alkaline diet has become popular recently for its ability to reduce the acidity in one’s body. The less acidity in your body, the less disease, and sickness you are at risk for developing. The main issue with this diet is that it is restrictive and has not been properly researched.

Cabbage Soup Diet

This diet sounds neither appetizing nor effective. For seven days, you only eat cabbage soup in addition to a few things like baked potatoes and fruit. This may make you drop weight fast, but the results will not last long. And this much restriction is not healthy for your body.

Ear Stapling Diet

This diet follows logic similar to acupuncture. The staple through specific areas of the ear is supposed to stimulate decreased appetite and thus, initiate weight loss. There is no real evidence that this diet actually works.
