It is always possible to lose a lot of weight quickly by taking extreme measures, but that is not typically healthy or easy to sustain over any length of time. Because most diets don’t teach you to make healthy decision. Think of weight loss in terms of sustainability. Be patient and remember that weight loss will happen as you adopt a healthy lifestyle and make good choices. Here are 5 mistakes that people make for fast and quick weight loss that can cause adverse effects on your health.
Skipping morning meal can throw off your body’s rhythm of fasting and eating. When you wakeup, the blood sugar of your body needs to make your muscles and brain work their best is usually low. Breakfast helps replenish it. If your body doesn’t get all important nutrients from food, you may feel zapped of energy and you’ll be more likely to overeat later in the day.
Skipping breakfast also triggers bad eating habits during the day. Having breakfast boosts metabolism and increases your energy levels throughout the day. When you miss it, your energy is reduced and physical activity decline. “Ideally your first meal of the day should comprise a perfect combination of Carbohydrates, Protein and Fibre.”
CUTTING CARBS OUT FROM YOUR DIET
If you cut out carbs completely, your body will eventually go into a state of ketosis where small fragments of carbon called ketones are released into the blood because the body is burning fat instead of carbohydrates. Keto diets might sound appealing at first, but fat is a slower source of fuel than glucose, which means it takes longer for your body to access it.
During a keto diet, you will lose water weight first, which can be misleading then the non-water weight will follow. Low carbs diet can be effective in reducing obesity rates. But when you consider the long term health concerns, cutting them out altogether does not seem like a healthy long term option.
DOING CRAZY JUICE CLEANSE
There’s no science to suggest that you need to detox your body. Your body is smarter than that. You have built-in detox organs, the liver and kidney, clean up any waste that needs to be. Many people complain of fairly severe side effects, because you’re not eating a well rounded diet that includes fats, fiber and protein. You may experience headaches, lightheadedness, dizziness, fatigue, depression and irritability. Juices fasts leave out many of the critical nutrients that your body needs in order to perform without sufficient protein, your body has no raw materials with which to build new tissue. A lack of fat leaves your skin and hair in poor shape and contributes to malabsorption of fat soluble vitamins.
Juicing actually removes the digestive helping and nutrient rich fiber. Drinking fresh-squeezed juice is good for you but consider balancing the cleanse with other essential, healthy nutrients. Quite simple, your body needs carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamin and minerals, water and fiber in order to function properly.
COUNTING CALORIES BUT STILL INCLUDING ALCOHOL DAILY
Alcohol temporarily keeps your body from burning fat. The reason that your body can’t store calories from alcohol for later, the way it does with food calories. So, when you drink, your metabolic system must stop what it’s doing to get rid of the booze. Drinking presses “Pause” on your metabolism, shoves away the other calories. Alcohol drinks are made by fermenting and distilling natural starch and sugar, It contains a lot of calories.
Calories from alcohol are empty calories, they have no nutritional value. Most alcoholic drinks contain traces of vitamin and minerals, but not usually in amounts that make any significant contribution to our diet. Drinking alcohol also reduces the amount of fat your body burns for energy. While we can store nutrients, proteins, carbs, fat in our bodies, we can’t store alcohol. So our system want to get rid of it, and doing so takes priority. All of the other process that should be taking place are interrupted.
EATING PROTEINS AND VEGGIES FOR MEALS
There are three macronutrients that makeup the human diet and are Fats, Proteins and Carbs.
In order to function optimally, we must ingest an adequate amount of essential macronutrients, or risk regular bouts of both poor mental and physical performance. Fats are an essential part of our diet and is important for good health. There are different types of fats, with some fats being healthier than others. To help make sure you stay healthy, it is important to eat unsaturated fats in small amounts as part of a balanced diet. When eaten in large amounts, all fats, including healthy fats, can contribute to weight gain. Fat is higher in energy than any other nutrient and so eating less fat overall is likely to help with weight loss.
So, a diet that is low in saturated fats and trans fats, but that also includes moderate amounts of unsaturated fats will help you stay healthy.
