It’s safe to say that a lot of folks have tried to drop a few pounds at some point in their life, and while some may try and do so by simply eating better, a lot of us resort to fad diets and the latest trends to make that happen, and it’s costing us money.
A new survey finds:
- Half of Americans say they followed a fad diet that wound up doing more harm than good.
- Only 32% of folks say a diet trend “often” helps them reach their goal.
- 90% of those who try nutrition trends say they’ve spent, on average, $158 on products that didn’t work, or didn’t help them reach their desired result.
- That could translate in more than $9,000 over a lifetime.

- Drinking celery juice (79%)
