Share your experiences with diets that didn't work

By Donald Hensrud, M.D. June 18, 2010

As you all know, weight loss can be very challenging. Partly for this reason, most people have tried many different diets and weight loss programs, usually with poor long-term results. Some of these methods can even be unsafe.

A previous blog asked you to share experiences on strategies that have helped you manage your weight. For this blog, if you've tried weight loss methods that didn't work, were unsafe, expensive, or that you just wish you hadn't tried, please share it so others can learn from your experience.
