Why Quick Weight Loss Diets Are Bad

October 11, 2015


Quick weight loss diets maybe are effective for a short period of time, as they are causing you to lose weight due to a quick calorie reduction or water weight loss.

However, these are pretty unhealthy and can lead to more serious health problems.

According to Judy Penta, a certified holistic health counselor and personal trainer with Patients Medical in New York City:

“The fad diets succeed at jolting you from the grind of mindless snacking, eating junk food on the run, and all the calorie and fat-packed extras like whipped cream in the cappuccino, or grabbing a slice of pizza on the way home from work. Just making these lifestyle adjustments is usually enough to see some weight loss.”

Signs of an Unhealthy Diet

Most diets fail to meet the nutritional needs of most people and can cause major health issues. Here are some of the symptoms of a quick weight loss diet not being healthy for your body:

  • Muscle cramps
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Fainting
  • Dehydration
  • Severe constipation or diarrhea
  • Mood changes
  • Constant hunger

Also, if you are on any kind of medication or you have chronic health concerns, you must be twice as cautious with these dangerous fad diets. Make sure you consult your doctor before trying any new diet.
