“Hey everyone! 🌟 Diet is becoming crucial in our lives, whether guided by professionals or self-chosen. The importance of adopting a healthy, well-balanced diet can’t be overstated. Whether you’re aiming to lose or gain weight or just stay healthy, following the right diet is key. Let’s prioritize our well-being by making informed and mindful choices!
“Fad diets promise quick results, but they’re not a healthy choice. Rapid weight loss may happen, but it’s hard to maintain, and your body reacts to abrupt nutritional changes. While not necessarily a failure, the rebound effect can make long-term weight management challenging. Prioritize sustainable, balanced approaches for lasting health. 🌱💪
Diet is optimum when you include all the five essential food groups in your diet in required proportion as per your body. But calculating your requirements is very important whereas in fad diet a random selection of food is given and is advised to take it. Sometimes it is no carb diet, high fat diet, high protein diet or fruits diet. Everyday there are ‘n’ numbers of different diet published and recommended by the dieticians and nutritionist.
“Fad diets offer short-term results but often lead to regret. Opt for a traditional, balanced approach: portion control, low fat, moderate carbs and proteins, along with water, fruits, and veggies. Stick to a diet of cereals, pulses, meat, poultry, fruits, vegetables, and moderate fats for lasting health.
There are many reasons which prove that fad diet only has consequences.
- WEIGHT REBOUNCEs: Fad diets are very simple and strict to be followed because it has to be continued for a very small period of time. But when we actually go to see whatever is the weight loss is due to the water loss from the body. It can also cause water imbalance in the body. Once you stop the diet and resume your regular diet you to tend to put on weight which you had lost with some extra pounds. So it is always recommended by the health professionals to gradually lose weight so that it doesn’t re bounces.
- HAIR AND MUSCLES ARE COMPROMISED: When you are on fad diet your diet is not nutritionally adequate. There are many nutritional deficiencies because of which the quality of hair is compromised. Both hair and muscles require adequate protein for its growth and maintenance. As fad diet is a very low calorie diet, body will meet up its requirements from other sources like proteins and fats and thereby not allowing proteins to carry out its main function of growth and maintenance.
- NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES: Fad diets are low carbohydrate and nearly no fat diet. Restriction of the basic food group from the body lead to many deficiencies and hence you feel fatigued and inability to function normally. Contrary to popular belief, not all fats are bad for the body. There are good fats, such as omega-3 fatty acids, are essential if you want to have good health.
- ALTERED METABOLISM OF THE BODY: Our body need particular food in particular quantity. Various nutrients have various functions in the body. Our body has strong signaling system which tells us when we are hungry and when we are full. When you are on fad diet you go against your body’s metabolism which negatively affects your body. This effect can be long term even after you have stopped your fad diet.
