Every day it seems a new diet is ready to make weight loss faster and easier than ever before. Or at least they say they are.

The following diets might spur short-term weight loss, but many are difficult to follow, have arbitrary rules, and a few could put your health in danger.
Have you ever tried a fad diet? What was the result? I'll admit, I've been temped by a few, especially that cookie one!
