Wrong ways of losing weight
weight generally people opt for shortcut methods that seem working fast however
in a longer run the result can be more dangerous. The
healthiest way to lose weight is neither crash diets nor bursts of exercise.
The body likes slow changes in terms of food and exercise. The most effective
way to lose weight is to reduce the amount of calories you eat and increase
your levels of activity.
Some wrong methods for
Starving: When you suddenly start starving themselves. Diets that severely
restrict calories or the types of food 'allowed' can lead you to be deficient
in the nutrients and vitamins that your body needs.
Dieting: US scientists conducting a comprehensive review of dieting research
have concluded that dieting does not work. Through dieting you can initially
lose 5 to 10 percent of your weight on any number of diets, but then the weight
comes back. A few of the essential elements of any diet are that it must result
in long-term changes in eating patterns, and it must be individualized to you
and your lifestyle. It must also include 3 meals a day, contain adequate
calories for you to function and stay healthy, and it must contain a good
balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and fat. And once you start dieting your
body gets deficient of important nutrition.
Liquid diet: Liquid
Diet consists of Fresh Fruit Extract, Fruit shake, Coffee,
Milk, Protein shake, Soup. It's true someone on a liquid diet can lose up to
6lbs in 2-3 days only. But most of the lost weight is just water and as soon as
you drink you will gain back the lost weight. And once you got bored of the
liquid diet, and start eating again, the weight can come back and more if you are not carefull. The reason for
gaining more weight this time is because during the time you are on a liquid
diet your metabolism got used on just burning few calories, so when you go back
to your normal calories intake your body (metabolism) will be slow already in
burning those calories and that leaves you gaining more weight.
Only vegetables: Vegetables are good for
health however no food alone could ever cause us to lose weight, there is no such
thing as the best single weight loss food. There are
two types of vegetables: starchy and nonstarchy. Both types are part of a
proper diet, but whereas nonstarchy varieties can be eaten in abundance,
starchy selections contain more sugar, hence portion size need to be kept in
check. Starchy vegetables include corn, peas, plantains, potatoes, squash, and
yams. Choose dark green and dark yellow vegetables most often, such as romaine
lettuce, broccoli, spinach, peppers, chilies, and carrots. To incorporate more veggies into your diet, add some to the foods
you already eat, such as omelets, lasagna, casseroles, soup, and pasta dishes.
Dieting pills: Diet pills are really
magical but Diet pills can be extremely dangerous for your health. Most of
these diet pills work by curbing your appetite so that you can lower you
calorie intake. But if you lower your calorie intake, your metabolism rate
might drop down too. So it's really a very short term solution to weight loss.
Diet pills can cause many diseases also.
Some side effects of Dieting:
So any single
way doesn't works to lose weight. It also varies from person to person
depending upon your body. So never starve yourself. Take a balanced diet,
exercise regularly and keep yourself active.
