The Pitfalls Of Fad Diets

Losing weight is always a challenge that requires constant motivation and discipline in order to achieve results. A lot of people rely on following certain diets to control and manage their weight. Others further rely on what is popular such as fad diets. But there are certain pitfalls to this practice. Here are some of them.

You will experience fatigue.

Many fad diets rely on restricting certain food groups such as carbohydrates or fats in losing weight. While this may show great results in the short term, these types of diets can come with a consequence. You will begin to feel increasing tiredness and fatigue along the way. Restricting certain food groups will cause your body to want it more. You are also depriving yourself out of calories your body needs. Your body metabolism may start to slow down, resulting in tiredness.

You will end up dehydrated.

If you follow a diet that helps you lose weight rapidly, most of the time it is water weight that you lose. If you force the body to lose weight faster than what your body is accustomed to, you may be risking your health. Losing that water bodyweight can result into rapid dehydration, a serious health emergency if not addressed at the right time.

You will become malnourished.

Crash diets or those that involve fasting will deprive you from consuming food groups essential to what your body needs daily. This will also lead to the deprivation of the essential vitamins and minerals it needs. After a while, the diet may deprive your body from getting these nutrients and you will end up malnourished. This becomes a dangerous way to lose weight.
