Thinking of doing a crash diet to lose weight fast? Here’s some things you should know!

We all know someone that is on or has done crash diet and has lost weight fast.fantastic if only dieting was that simple there would be no need for food and we could all live off shakes happily ever after!

If you are considering going onto a crash diet to lose weight fast here’s some things you may want to think about

slow down your metabolism: the rate at which your body turns food into energy
prevent you from getting important nutrients and vitamins that your body needs to work properly

reduce your intake of carbohydrates (such as pasta, bread, and rice) that are an essential source of energy

increase your intake of protein and fat: too much saturated fat can raise your cholesterol and increase your risk of heart disease and stroke

Can also lead to depression

Eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia

short-term dehydration and nutritional deprivation, can go hand in hand. Even if you consume a lot of water throughout your diet it is hard for your body to retain water if you are not eating balanced meals. Severely reducing your caloric intake deprives your body of vitamins, carbohydrates, proteins and nutrients that it needs to sustain itself. Having a diet low in fat is good but having a diet free from fat is not acceptable, your body needs 30% of its daily calories to come from fats. In addition, a lot of crash diets suggest the use of laxatives or salt water flushes which increase risk of dehydration and don’t allow the body to absorb nutrients and fats which in turn leads to nutritional deprivation.

long-term health complications that can arise from excessive crash dieting, or yo-yo dieting. They weaken your immune system,
cause heart palpitations and cardiac stress. If you do one crash diet you may not hurt your heart but if you crash diet repeatedly you can increase your risk of heart attacks. Crash diets also lead to heart muscle loss in the long run. You damage your blood vessels when the muscle shrinks and grows and the micro tears create an environment perfect for atherosclerosis or other types of heart disease.

Remember you cannot get all of the nutrients you need from a shake to lose weight effectively you should

lose weight gradually:

at a rate of 0.5-1kg (1-2lbs) a week
by eating a healthy, balanced diet combined with regular physical activity
At a rate of 0.5-1kg (1-2lb) a week you’re more likely to maintain a healthy weight long-term. For the best results, you need to combine your healthy diet with regular physical activity. For more information, see What weight loss plans are recommended?

  1. I do believe all of the concepts you have offered on your
    post. They are really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are very quick for newbies.

    Could you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

  2. Even though they might do this one time for the wedding, I think there can be addictive qualities to
    these diets, and I think that someone might continue to do something like this.
    Although special diet and workout plans have been
    devised for sufferers of this condition, these techniques do not work for all people.

    One of my clients had a fear of lizards so bad that she couldn’t go to a restaurant because
    if she saw a shadow that looked like a lizard she would freak out.

  3. Have you ever thought about writing an ebook or guest authoring
    on other blogs? I have a blog based on the same ideas you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my viewers would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me
    an email.

    This can impact both worldwide and local patterns of
    climate and atmosphere-ocean circulation. We cannot use technology to refreeze
    disappearing glaciers or the ice caps, refill rivers, remake
    their entire ecology or stop rising oceans
    due to global warming.
