Detox diet is a lemon, say experts [news]
A diet consisting solely of lemon-based drinks has been rated the worst fad diet for the second year running by a group of dietitians. The Lemon Detox Diet was deemed the worst by a survey of Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) members, followed by the Acid Alkaline Diet and the Six Weeks to OMG Diet. Dietitian Melanie McGrice from the DAA said she hoped the survey would make people think twice about embarking on fad diets. McGrice said the Lemon Detox Diet was rated the worst because it was essentially a starvation diet involving drinking only lemon-based drinks for 10 to 14 days.
