March is National Nutrition Month

Every March the American Dietetic Association sponsors National Nutrition Month. One fun feature of their website is a fad diet timeline; I don’t think I would have wanted to try Lord Byron‘s vinegar & water diet (1820) or the sleeping beauty diet (1976) which featured heavy sedation for several days.

  1. Beyonce & Jessica Simpson allegedly did the Maple Syrup Diet (2006) – I know b/c a friend did it as well. It’s basically drink lemon/maple syrup water all day w/ one meal at night. Kind of like Slimfast but without the milk.
