Do you mean as a source of humor? Right now I am getting some of my biggest chuckles from people who call themselves "Paleo."

The "amputation diet" listed above makes the whole poll sound like a joke, but just in case anyone is confused, "fad" is not a good word to associate with your health in general.

In defense of the South Beach diet (which I've never been on) trying to eat foods high in fiber and low in sugar is not an unworthy goal.
