Fad dieting trends and cultural obsessions with weight are nothing new. The highly popularized Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) diet dates back to the 1800s. It was invented by an undertaker, William Banting, who popularized the diet through his weight loss journey. It became so notorious that “to bant” was understood to mean “to diet.”
Since then, the fashion for thinness continues, as the world is served trendy diets, from eating about 14 jars of baby food to consuming foods according to your blood type.
Although they might promise rapid weight loss, many fad diets are unsustainable, have extreme practices, and a few could put your health in jeopardy (looking at you, keto!).
