There are dozens of quick - fix diets from eating only grapefruit, to detox cleanses, to chili pepper concoctions, to eating the way some celebrity recommends for instant weight loss. These fad diets do not work and may be harmful to a teenager's health. This program looks at the science of weight loss and dieting and contrasts it with the billions of dollars spent by the fad diet industry to hook you on one scheme or another. Katrina Schroeder, a nutritionist for adolescents, explains how teens get fooled into thinking a fad diet is good, only to find out that it has bad health consequences. She warns teens, “don’t get trapped by all the hype!” and gives tips for healthy food prep and healthy eating habits.

Includes Resource Guide.
