You should avoid these diets this January
8th December 2014

Celebrities have long been known for their unthinking, tribalistic following of nonsense diets which they latch onto after reading questionable dietary advice. Unfortunately, of course, many fans then follow their icons. 

With this to mind, the British Dietetic Association is today revealing its annual list of top celebrity diets to avoid in the new year.  

This year, making a brand new entry, the Urine Therapy Diet has taken the top slot, followed by the Paleo Diet at number two, the Sugar Free Diet at number three, the VB6 Diet at number four and completing the list this year is the Clay Cleanse Diet.

Abigail Wilson, British Dietetic Association joined Wake Up London to discuss the report in further detail.
