Why Most Diets Fail
Most fad diets fail because they create
negative biological effects within your body.
Starvation diets that reduce your daily caloric
intake too much will actually cause you to hold onto fat and extra
body mass by lowering your rate of metabolism and by triggering your
body’s starvation defense mechanisms. Fad diets
that reduce your food choices to only one or two food groups are also
unhealthy, and they will ultimately fail because they starve your
body by not providing it with adequate amounts of nutrients,
minerals, and fats that it needs to operate and function properly.
As your body runs out of the stored elements it will trigger a
craving that will encourage you to eat foods that have the nutrients
that it needs. These craving, unfortunately, will kill you diet as
once you start eating the restricted foods you won’t be able to
stop. This cycle of starvation and bingeing can lead to heart
problems and possibly an eating disorder.
In addition to nutritional concerns that fad diets
pose, unbalanced diets also impact the way
that you feel, and your ability to function normally. With too few
calories, and too few nutrients your moods will swing to the dark
side, and people will not want to be around you. This could
negatively impact your ability to function at work, to socialize
with others, or to take part in your family’s activities.
