They just can’t seem to lose that weight. Not even a pound!
You see, a lot of people are doing the wrong things trying to lose weight and look slim. Your slim down strategy may not be a smart one, that’s just the fact. Besides, it took you years to become over weight, you shouldn’t expect a miracle, you can’t lose weight overnight.
A lot of people are looking for a fast and easy way to lose weight, so majority skip meals, take laxative, eat fat free foods and many more.
These weight loss strategies are bad and may even be very hazardous to your health. And aren’t you trying to lose weight because you want a good health? So why put your health at risk?
Trying to lose weight in the wrong way will not bring results and it is even bad for your health. There are a lot of ways out there that can help you lose weight and there are many that can cause damages to your physical and mental well-being.
Below are common worst weight loss strategies you might be trying in order to lose weight.
The No-Calorie Diet Habit
The body needs fat to function, and healthy fats actually help you burn fat. Unfortunately, one of the most popular trends amongst dieters is the zero-calorie trend. This is leading people include harmful artificial sweeteners in their diet all in the name of losing weight.
Taking Drugs and Pills
All in the name of weight loss, some people just buy drugs at the store and we should know there’s not a magic pill that will make you lose weight.
Drugs like cocaine are often used by dieters as a quick and easy weight-loss drug. But what they are doing is causing a severe damage to their heart and brain.
There are certain natural and effective supplements that can aid in fat-burning, but they must be combined with healthy eating and exercise.
Some people skip breakfast or lunch all because they want to lose weight.
This approach may actually make sense to you, but the truth is it’s a very harmful and unhealthy way to lose weight.
Your metabolism increases after each meal, and if you chronically skip meals, this can slow down your metabolism and then you start to gain weight. Note that starving or skipping meals is just not effective for weight-loss.
The act of Purposely throwing up is a bad idea and it is incredibly dangerous to your health.
Purging is often accompanied with serious psychological effects on the person purging. Plus, it increases your cravings for junks and unhealthy foods.
Using Laxatives to lose weight
Consuming excess laxatives in form of pills, powders, suppositories and teas in order to lose weight is not a new trend among people who want to shred fat.
Continuous use of laxatives will weaken your digestive system and can possibly cause you abdomen related complications.
Going on a juice diet
This juice-only diet method might leave you feeling light and clean, but the downside which is a problem is juices have almost no protein content at all, so you will only lose water weight and muscle mass, but not fat.
And once you go back to eating your solid food, those pounds will pile right back on.
Drinking vinegar before your meal
Some research shows that vinegar promotes healthier blood sugar levels and increases feelings of satiety. But as long as drinking highly acidic liquids like vinegar still remains a habit that can irritate the throat and stomach it shouldn’t be something you do regularly.
Instead, use vinegar as an alternative to salad dressings and continually eat a nutritionally balanced diet. This is healthy.
Taking Diet soda
Swapping sugary, high-calorie soda for diet pop may seem like a very good way to help you drop pound but don’t be deceived.
Diet beverages have their own set of health risks.
A study published in The Journal of The American Geriatrics Society showed that subjects who drank diet soda and in other drinks, such as coffee or tea which contained artificial sweeteners added more weight and belly fat compared to those who skipped on it even without any increase in their calorie intake.
Consuming too much protein
Reducing the carbs you consume in order to increase your protein might make you lose water weight for a while.
But later on, these kinds of diets won’t be effective at helping you drop pounds.
When you start missing your carbs occasionally, you might start feeling deprived. Plus, you need a balanced diet if you want to lose weight.
Too much of exercise
Exercising more means burning more calories. But over exercising is very likely make you hungrier and drive you to eat more.
Eating more food, even healthy foods can quickly destroy the hard work you put in at the gym.
Stop exercising after an hour or two so that you’re able to control your feelings of hunger.
It is important that you lose weight if you are overweight or obese because this condition is life-threatening. Losing weight the wrong and bad ways are life threatening as well. This is why it is important that you try to lose weight with the safest methods you can.
Avoid the methods listed above because the reason you are losing weight is to be healthy, so you shouldn’t be causing harm to your health because you want to be healthy.
Take natural fat burners, eat balanced diets, eat organic foods, do moderate exercises, drink water, avoid stress and you will notice changes with time.
