Fad diets

The lull of Twixmas has arrived and with it quite often for some a good time for reflections on the previous year and the year ahead. For many of us this is the prime time for planning changes. This might mean quitting smoking for some, drinking less for others, and diet is a regular one too.

The British Dietetic Association has some great info sheets and they have compiled one on fad diets. https://www.bda.uk.com/foodfacts/faddiets.pdf

I’m very keen on the ‘non-diet approach’ which involves making small sustainable changes rather than following a restrictive and often expensive diet plan. This is something us dietitians can support you with. If you find yourself wanting support with making changes to what you eat you can get a referral to an NHS dietitian via your GP or visit https://freelancedietitians.org/ to find a freelance dietitian near you.
