Why Fad Diets Don’t Work
Fad diets are becoming increasingly popular nowadays because people are always on the lookout for a quick fix. While these diets may work for some time, there’s no telling what the long-term effects will be, effects that you may not be aware of at the time. This makes it dangerous and even life-threatening to some, hence the need for a greater public awareness of the dangers of such diets. Here is quick rundown of why you should never opt for a quick fad diet fix:
1. You could incur metabolic damage.
When you deprive your body too much, your hormone levels will be out of order, causing imbalances all over the place. These hormonal imbalances will negatively affect the way your body works. You could cause permanent metabolic damage if your thyroid is greatly affected.
2. They are not sustainable.
Take for example fad diets that have to do with starvation. Yes, you will lose weight, but once you start eating normal portions again, you will either gain fat at an alarming rate, your stomach may get upset, or your stomach may outright reject the excess of food. Unless you can reprogram you body into only eating bite-sized portions, forget those starvation diets.
3. Your body will not choose to run on lemon water and cayenne pepper just because you tell it to.
Jus think about it. The body needs a healthy amount of carbohydrates, fat and protein. Those fad diets of cabbage soup or lemon water and what not are not balanced in the slightest. Just because you decided to go on a cabbage soup diet doesn’t mean your body is going to agree with it, let alone function normally on such an imbalanced diet.
The next time you are tempted by a flashy label or persuasive salesperson, just say no. There are better ways to lose weight the healthy and sustainable way. Contact our hCG clinic to start your journey NOW!
