Dieting, too, has become a national pastime. Promoters of fad diets

that eliminate eating one thing or another, such as fats or
carbohydrates, promise as much as 20-pound weight losses within
two weeks. Books describing such miraculous diets consistently head
up the best-seller lists because every corpulent person wants to lose
weight quickly and easily.

Nevertheless, both jogging and dieting, carried to extremes, can be

hazardous. Many confused joggers overdo and ultimately suffer from
ankle and foot damage. Fad dieting, fortunately, becomes only a
temporary means for shedding a few pounds while the body is
deprived of the balanced nutrition it requires, so most dieters cannot
persevere on fad diets. Above all, common sense should be the
keystone for any dieting and exercise scheme.
