Did that lost weight come back? Time to try sustainable diets now
Fad diets are very tempting in terms of losing weight at the earliest. It has harmful impacts in the long run when that lost weight comes back & maybe with some more extra kilos!
Heard your friend lost weight 8 kilos with GM diet just before her wedding? Or your gym buddy to lose far more inches he expected by doing a Ketogenic diet? Paleo, Atkins, Ornish & Dukan are some more fancy terms of few fad diets promoted by well-known doctors & celebrities.
Are you a celebrity? No. You are an ordinary hard-working person who leads a sedentary lifestyle with few binges on unwanted food (by your body) every week, and one constant excuse of not having time to do that fifteen minutes of physical activity imperative to your body! Then one fine morning when you wake up & meet such celebs, you get obsessed with quick weight loss techniques & start following the same religiously. Don’t fall for that vicious trap. It’s temporary. It will harm your body’s metabolism & result in nutrient deficiencies that may lead to lifestyle disorders.
Time to protect your body by adopting sustainable diets. Yes, it is the right time now, that you understand your body composition & work for its welfare. Include all the food groups. Moderation is the key. Include regional vegetables that are available as per the season. Research has proven that erratic eating patterns & following temporary diets not approved by your nutritionist leads to elevated cholesterol levels posing a risk to your cardiovascular health along with few abnormalities in your liver & pancreas.
Therefore, make sure you eat right & modify your lifestyle by adopting healthy changes gradually in your routine on a regular basis & beware of the fad diets that shell out your pockets & are also not permanent.
