Registered Dietitian  and author of the book, Stop The Diet, I Want To Get Off, Lisa Tillinger Johansen joined me for the whole hour Sunday on the Outbreak News This Week radio show to discuss the myriad of fad diets out on the market and to answer the questions– What are they?, How effective are they? and How healthy are they?

The Paleo Diet, Atkins, South Beach and others you’ve heard of and may have tried. The wide array of vegetarian diets are looked at and some of the possibly most strange diets that are out there to include the Blood Type Diet and the Baby Food diet.

In addition, Tillinger Johansen talks about what is an appropriate, healthy diet and what inspired her to write this book.
