20 Diet Plans To Avoid

1

The focus of a diet plan should not only revolve around losing weight. Some diet plans can result in the desired weight loss, but may seriously harm your health. Your diet plan must take into consideration the intake of basic nutrients.

Following is a list of diet plans that you might want to avoid, or undertake in a controlled fashion:

1. Water Diet

Under this diet you only consume water for a few days or weeks. The downsides of excluding food include the absence of calories required to carry out everyday activities, dizziness, fainting, headaches, constipation and nausea.

While you will initially lose weight, the risk is just too high.  Even if you don’t experience the side-effects in the first few days, be sure that this type of diet will cause a lot of damage to your metabolism.  Further, once you start eating food again, you’ll end up gaining the same amount of weight – if not more.

Instead of torturing your organism with the water diet, choose a healthier diet and drink lots of water on a daily basis.  Although you will lose weight slowly by choosing a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean meat and whole grains, you will remain healthy and the weight won’t come back.
