Popular diets: why so popular?

  • Jarl S. Torgerson

Abstract

Obesity is a chronic, prevalent and disabling disorder. Unfortunately, conventional non-surgical treatment programmes are often perceived as less efficient. This creates a vacuum-like situation to be filled by anything that could offer some kind of hope to the afflicted. However, scientific data supporting popular diets are generally scarce or even lacking.
