Crash dieting may make you more susceptible to weight gain

Feeling healthy and feeling good about yourself is not a luxury – it’s an absolute necessity.

Crash dieting may make you more susceptible to weight gain




Crash dieting is not healthy. It can disrupt normal metabolism and cause a weight gain later. If you are trying to slim for fashion, reconsider your goals. Think of long-term health benefits. It did not take a fortnight to gain excess weight. So it cannot take a fortnight to lose it. Try to avoid diets that promise you a quick fix.

If a person is super obese, the health risks caused by losing weight rapidly under medical supervision can be lower than obesity-related risks. A very low-calorie diet can be prescribed by a physician to help the patient achieve a significant weight loss. This is definitely not the way to go if you are trying to lose weight on your own. This is definitely not a healthy way to lose weight, but in this case we are not talking about healthy weight loss, we are talking about minimizing the risks caused by obesity.

  • Crash dieting is not healthy. It can disrupt normal metabolism and cause a weight gain later. If you are trying to slim for fashion, reconsider your goals. Think of long-term health benefits.

  • Fast diets or miracle diets are quite harmful, plan to lose two or three pounds a week and change your lifestyle, lots of fruit, many vegetables, daily vigorous exercise and plenty of water help you lose weight in a pleasant and healthy way.

  • Yes you are absolutely right about crash dieting, Crash Dieting can give only Temporary Results. Crash diets can have a bad impact on physical and mental health as well.

  • Indeed crash dieting can only lead to weight gain. Losing weight is not an easy job. If you want to lose weight and maintain it, you have to work on it. Even most surgeries aren’t long-term. After losing weight from whatever method used, you have to maintain it or you’ll go back to your old self again.

  • Crashing dieting is just short cuts that end up causing you to put on the weight again. If you don’t learn how to live with the changes you go back to your old habits which will simply cause you to gain the weight again. And then the process starts all over again. Do yourself a favor and take your time loss the weight, learn what changes you can live with, love yourself and be happy.

  • If there’s one best weight loss mantra it’s “exercise, exercise, exercise.” Choose activities you enjoy and do them every day. Exercising with a friend can help keep you on track.

  • Hey so what is everyone’s take on what’s going on on ABC’s Extreme Makeover Weight Loss? Each Monday they’re showing someone who is super obese and dropping tons of weight (literally hundreds of pounds) in a years time. Is that healthy? OR sustainable?

  • Which is one of my major concern’s for ABC’s Extreme Makeover Weight Loss. each Monday at 10 some super obese person is shown losing 100’s of pounds in just a year’s time. Is that healthy? Normal? Safe? What are they doing to drop that quick AND what are the long term consequences of such rapid weight loss? seems terribly sketchy and unhealthy

  • We all know there are many factors to overweight and how hard is to have long term results. The answer is in change of the habits, long term.

  • I agree, losing weight the healthy way is a long term commitment. Probably worse than anything else are pills that artificially increase your metabolism. They can cause heart problems and other health issues. If you’re going to increase your metabolism, you should do it naturally.

  • Thanks for the article. Good one!
    But these is true “Quick fixes lead to quick disappointments”.

  • It’s very true that crash diets don’t work. You need to find your motivation to exercise and eat healthily and maintain that motivation.

  • Sliming for fashion is a fashion, but is all wrong. Sliming for health helps you maintain your weight after the diet that doesn’t need to be drastic.

  • Eve, you’re absolutely right. Crash dieting may seem a quick solution, but, from statistics, 90% of crash dieters put the weight back on within a short period of time. There might be other health risks too.
