Not neccessarily stupid, maybe just slightly ignorant and naive.
The majority of these types of "<specific food> diets" are based on childish belief in easy solutions, coupled with unrealistic presentations and, often times, outright lies.[See especially a massive amount of women-oriented magazines.]
Instead of telling people that they need to follow the long, hard and nutrition-wise complex task of changing to a healthy diet, keeping it up and exercising a lot, these diets promise easy solutions by simply reducing your diet to one product. ["And it only takes 2 weeks!"]

After being offered the choice of picking something that definitely works but requires a lot of effort, vs. something that supposedly works with very little effort, many people simply go straight for the second one... but instead of realising that these methods don't work, they simply jump from one fad to the next. And because they're so used to just trusting these methods blindly, they don't question the scientific basis behind them.

Every fad dieter seems far more concerned with calories, sugar and fat counting... They seem to forget that their body actually needs those things along with the vitamins and minerals that come along with them
