Dietitian Explains | How can you tell whether or not a diet will work? Emory Bariatric Dietitian Meagan Moyer explains “how to spot a weight-loss scam” in an interview with Fox News in Atlanta.
“Definitely the first red flag of a diet scam would be ‘Do this! Don’t change anything about your eating or your exercise habits and you’ll lose weight! Just take this pill!’” said Moyer.
She pointed out that diets that appear to be ‘too good to be true’ most likely are, and weight loss plans that claim to work for everyone probably don’t.
“We all have different metabolisms,” she explained. “So one-size-fits-all is definitely not the case.”
Moyer wants to make sure anyone looking to start a diet does their homework first. It’s important to know if the nutritional plan is right for you and that your health won’t suffer. When choosing the right diet, choose one that helps with behavioral change. It’s best for you to understand what you are eating, and how you can change your habits to eat healthier.
