Everyone who gained a few extra kg wants to reduce their weight to be slim. Crash diets are very popular with people as they want to see rapid weight loss results. These diets promise rapid weight loss results. These diets claim you’ll lose weight at the rate of 5, 10, even 15 kgs a week. How impractical does this sound? If you went on this diet for about 3-4 months you’d disappear. So as you can see that level of weight loss promised by crash diets cannot be maintained.
Just one week of restrictive dieting can cause serious nutritional deficiencies, alter your metabolism and affects your emotional well-being. And most crash diets only set you up to regain the weight, because you haven’t made any long-term lifestyle changes for weight loss.
Through this crash dieting all you lose is “MUSCLES MASS”. Because muscle cells have more mass than fat cell and they are easier to lose.
When you go on strict, low-calorie diets, this diet puts smaller numbers on the weighing scale. But this type of rapid weight loss is harmful. You gain the weight back after quitting the crash diet. The water weight loss comes back the day you stop that crash diet. Your body will so go from “starvation” to “binge eating” that means you will consume as many calories as you can get your hands on. And at the end it may lead to 3 pounds of weight gain over next couple of days.
So what do you think? Is it worth it?
So its better lose weight slowly and healthily at the rate of about 2.5 – 3 kg per month by having healthy nutritious food, having small and frequent meal and including 1 hour exercise daily to your healthy lifestyle.
