Know How to Spot Unhealthy Diets

It seems that everywhere you look there is an advertisement for a miracle weight loss treatment. These treatments almost never work and many can be dangerous. 

This video from the Food and Drug Administration can help you identify and avoid fraudulent weight loss treatments . Exaggerated claims that sound too good to be true usually aren’t true—and many weight loss “supplements” contain drugs that cause cancer, stroke, heart attack, or other serious ailments. When looking for a safe and effective means of weight loss, it’s important to speak with a medical professional.
