Dangers of Fad Dieting

How many time have you heard or read about a new weight loss solution that has help hundreds of people already but by the time you try it out it barely does anything for you?

They always sound too good to be true and guest what; they are. Most of the diets you have heard or read about are ineffective and dangerous.

Problems with Fad Diets

How many diets are not nutritionally sound. Most of the diets you know have at least one flaw-they tell you too eat only one type of food. When we do this we deprive our body from important vitamins and minerals that are left out when you eat only one type of food.

Weight loss is only temporary. The weight loss people achieve from these diets is usually water weight and they will gain it all right back.

Fad diets cause muscle loss. The nutrition that is focused on in most of these diets cause muscle loss. When weight is gained backed it is gained back in less muscle and more fat having you fatter than when you started the diet. The less lean muscle mass you have on your body the less calories you need to maintain the muscle that lower your basic metabolic eate (BMR).

Stay away from fad diets that will just lead you away from your weight loss goals.

Good luck and God bless!
