It’s that time of the year, when people get desperate. Desperate to get slim and thin. Yes, it’s the time to shed the layers of winters and don the swimwear and summery clothes. So, we see folks around us subjecting themselves to deprivation diets or fasts or crash diets. Many do not know that these crash diets and nutrition restrictions, inadvertently result in more harm than good.
Crash diets do not work because they work on the principle of fooling the body, but the body is very smart and doesn’t buy it. Research suggests rapid weight loss can actually slow down the metabolism, leading to future weight gain, and deprive the body of essential nutrients. What’s more, crash diets can weaken the immune system and increase the risk of dehydration, heart palpitations, and cardiac stress. Of course, a crash diet once won’t hurt the heart, but crash dieting repeatedly increases the risk of heart attacks.
The key to losing weight or getting in shape or just living a healthier life is a combination of balanced healthy diet and exercise. Eating a balanced healthy diet provides a variety of benefits.
#Helps to Stay Energetic and Productive
Just like a car, the body needs quality fuel to run efficiently. What and when we eat can have a profound effect on our energy levels. Keeping our body fuelled with the right proportions of vitamins, minerals and nutrients can give the energy we need to make the most of our day. Research has found that eating unhealthy foods puts us at a 66% increased risk of productivity loss. Eating a healthy, balanced diet to make sure our body and brain has the fuel it needs means more energy and increased productivity at work.
# Assists in Weight Loss
The drastic or deprivation diets do appear to be attractive as they may bring results faster. But the chances are that they won’t work for a long-term as it is almost impossible to maintain the lifestyle that comes with them. Once we have stopped the crash diet, we are likely to put the weight back on (and sometimes even more than before) if we return to our old eating habits. Instead, by changing to balanced healthy foods and exercise, we are more likely to stick to our new habits, thereby keeping the weight off long-term. It is this diet that often makes maintaining a healthy body weight a bit easier.
# Keeps the Immune System Strong
Immune system is considered to be the soldier of our body, as it protects you from all kinds of illness. A good healthy diet is fundamental to good health and a strong immune system. In case of severe or crash diet , the vital nutrients will become scarce, and thus affect our immune system.
