Low carb, the 5:2 diet, detox, cabbage soup … there is no shortage of novelty diet programmes promising to help you lose weight fast.
The big question is do they work? Most do lead to fast – sometimes dramatic – weight loss, but only for the pounds to creep back on again at the end of the diet.
More worryingly, many fad diets are based on questionable science or no research at all, prescribing eating practices that are unhealthy and can make you ill.
When coming to see a therapist for overeating, you may find you are nourishing yourself with food, rather than love. Of course, we all need nourishment; we just need to discover the healthiest and happiest way to nourish ourselves.
