Health Issues With Fad Diets

When it comes to reduce weight quickly and significantly, there are numerous fad diets programs to choose from. Almost all of them promise you to deliver the desired results. Most of us start a harsh diet regime and try to lose ten pounds in the first two days. This makes us disappointed and possibly not a good health after those two days. At the same time, we need to start looking at the dangers of fad dieting. If you actually lost ten pounds you would be dehydrated, have an electrolyte imbalance and mineral deficiencies. The commitment of fad diets seems to be good because they are.

According to a study conducted by American Heart Association (AHA) on the dangers of fad dieting, it violated the rules of good nutrition. Good nutrition means a balanced intake of vitamins and minerals rich food. Moreover, there are no crash foods that will take off your weight. They proposed that people should eat a variety of foods from all the food groups. The AHA also suggested that fad diets take the best portion of eating away. You should like what you eat and feel satisfied.

The dangers of fad diets are they may cause someone to engorge. The dieters get extremely bored with the food that he or she needs a slip. Some people might binge and purge. Purging is an attempt to get rid of the food you intake by vomiting or use of laxatives. The purger may not eat anything for a few days to compensate for their binge.

Other issues with fad diets are they do not teach you the way to eat to deep the weight off. Dieters do not analyze healthy diets for long term weight management. For some, it may be a whole lifestyle changing process. One of the important issues is that fad diets sometimes lead to depression.
