Fad diets don't work and they may even put lives at risk. This according to a new study which is being called the world's largest study on weight loss.

This study was conducted by the University of California and it states that two thirds of dieters put the weight they lost back on. This up and down cycle can by double the risk of heart disease. It's also linked to stroke, diabetes, and a slower metabolism. So nutritionists say instead of strict diets, moderation is the key.

Registered Dietitian, Marcy McLaughlin says,"If people would make small substitutions in their diets, to make it something attainable and sustainable in the long run, then it will develop into healthy eating patterns."
