Wikipedia on Crash Diets

A crash diet is a diet which is extreme in its nutritional deprivations, typically severely restricting calorie intake. It is meant to achieve rapid weight loss and may differ from outright starvation only slightly. They are not meant to last for long periods of time, at most a few weeks. Importantly, the term specifically implies a lack of concern for proper nutrition.

It is the last sentence above that is really scary. We just seem to lack that concern, that commitment to feed ourselves right. There are so-called expert dieticians, (Or diet therapists, diet doctors, whatever), who is making people go on extreme diets in the name of ‘guaranteed weight loss, spot reduction, improving metabolic rate and stuff like that? I think we are barking up the wrong tree here. It’s a simple scenario of demand and supply. When people stop punishing themselves, fad diets will beat a quick retreat. That a lot of dieticians will find themselves out of a job is another issue altogether.
