The Negative Effects Of Dieting


The Negative Effects Of Dieting When you choose to go on a diet, you restrict yourself by eating less food and drinks to become thin, lose weight and even to become healthy but you don’t consider the negative effects of dieting. Good nutritious diet can make your health better and also help in avoiding many health problems in the long term such as heart ailments and diabetes[1]. When you go on a diet without giving any thought to your health and nutrition you may end up losing your health and face many health complications such as a weaker immunity[2]. The negative effects of dieting can obstruct the ability of the body to manage and cope with the sudden changes caused due to dieting itself.

To have a better understanding of the negative effects of dieting, you may need to have better knowledge of few of the variables that are met with the human body that ensures whether dieting results in better or worse.

1. Calories:

You need calories to go about your everyday activities and proper functioning of the body functions. If you have excess of calories even while dieting (eg. by eating lot of butter) the fat percentage of the body will increase. If you do not eat enough calories then your body will feel weak and tired all the time.

2. Carbohydrates:

The bad effect of mindless dieting, when we talk about the carbohydrates needs of the body, can be observed when you do not fully understand the difference between the good carbohydrates and bad carbohydrates.

Carbohydrates provide energy to the human body to have the strength to carry out physical activities. Bad carbohydrates are found in all foods that are sugary, carbonated drinks and sweets. To make sure that dieting does not have any negative impact on your health you must have small servings of rice, corn, whole grain, cereals to provide your body with the good carbohydrates.

3. Fiber:

Dieting turns out to be bad for health when your body does not get enough amounts of fiber through your food. Fiber is present in foods like nuts, kidney beans, salad, pinto beans and grain foods. Food soluble fiber help in reducing the cholesterol[3] levels in the body. The insoluble fiber is helpful in treating constipation[4] and hemorrhoids[5].

4. Protein:

Proteins are important for the production of red blood cells. It is also essential to manage the enzymes and the hormones. It is recommended that ten or twenty percent of the calories had every day should have proteins. Protein rich foods are eggs, cheese, milk and meat. You must include small portion of food having proteins in them like boiled eggs and a glass of tones milk. Having no proteins in your diet will have negative effect on your health.

When you go on a diet then your main goal should be to lose weight along with improving your overall health. If you lose weight in a healthy way then your appearance will also improve and your skin will glow.

Dangerous methods of losing weight:

Many people do not realize but the obsession to lose weight may push them towards harmful methods such as anorexia, bulimia as well as binge eating. Bulimics resort to forced vomiting and increased use of laxatives and diuretics to lose weight quickly. Can you imagine what effect that would have on your body?

The best way to lose weight is to form a healthy diet plan and indulge in physical activities.

About Us

Thanks for visiting our site and taking your wellness seriously. Before we tell you about ourselves, let's explore what the BUZZ is all about...

The funny thing about societal movements or cultural shifts is that they often don’t happen all at once. They begin when an idea is formed and if it’s a good idea, it spreads. As it spreads it creates a “Buzz.” People begin talking about it, adding their own ideas, testing it, sharing it and creating momentum that can change the world.

The best ideas resonate within us, increase our vibration and align with what we know is true. This creates a buzz within each of us. And when we feel that, we want to share it with those we love, right?

The reason we created is to be a catalyst in creating and spreading the Buzz, dispelling dangerous myths, society norms and enlightening people that maybe there are better methods for them to live and be well.

But it’s people like you who are really responsible for the Buzz. Educating yourself is the first step, taking action and realizing your truth is the second. But the third step is when you spread the word and create the Buzz. That’s when change happens. Not just for you, but for all of us.

That’s why we’d like to thank you in advance for not only visiting and arming yourslef with great information but also sharing it with family and friends.

As with any advice on health, life or anything, put it to the test for yourself. If it doesn’t sound right, research it, try it or seek guidance. If it works for you and lets you live well, do it. Enlighten others, but don’t force your methods on them. Give them the tools to decide for themselves and let them choose, just as you did.

Together we are making a difference.
