I think the best approach to weight loss is to make sure you burn more calories than you eat over time. Also you need to make sure that you are getting enough water, 64 oz baseline + another 8 oz for every 10 lbs you want to lose. And you need to keep track that you're nutritional needs are being met through either diet or supplements. Most fad diets really don't take all of those things into consideration, they just tell you what to eat for a few days. A fad diet is just that a "fad", while it might work for a few people it's not going to work for everyone, usually because they are so restrictive that you eventually cheat and also because most fad diets don't have a method to get you back on plan after a cheat day. Also every "body" is a little different so you have to wade through it and figure out what works for you.
