Is Your Diet Dangerous?

September 14, 2009

danger dietDiet will help you to lose weight, to drop pounds. But there are many people go for dangerous programs, for the example, there are many people emulate the bad habits of stick-thin celebrities, hoping to become as thin as they, not realizing that those habits are risky. Here are some signs that a diet is dangerous:

1. Single-food diets
Today, there are so many of single-food diet plans, such as banana diet, cabbage-soup diet, egg diet and even cookie diet. Focusing on a single food only make you depriving your body of the many other nutrients it needs for good health. In addition, single food diets are monotonous.

2. Cleanse diets
Word has gotten out that a bizarre concoction of maple syrup, lemon juice and cayenne pepper -- all mixed in water, will help you to lose weight. Perhaps it does, but this and other so-called "cleanse drinks" not only taste bad, they can lead to headaches, acne and irritability. The liver, kidneys and intestines are designed to handle the toxins the body encounters in day-to-day living; they don't need any help from "cleanse drinks".

3. Cigarettes
As you know that cigarettes are linked to lung cancer, emphysema, fertility problems and a host of other ailments, yet, many celebrities and others still count on them to help with weight loss and stress relief.

4. Illegal drugs
Well, many celebrities use cocaine or other illegal drugs in order to lose weight. While they do diminish the appetite, these drugs are illegal for many reasons. They are addicting, have negative effects and they are expensive. In addition, getting caught with them could land you in jail indefinitely. They should not be part of your diet plan.

5. Wrongly used prescription drugs
Some celebrities use drugs, such as Adderall (that in intended for attention-deficit disorder or even Clenbuterol (a respiratory drug for horses). While these, too, diminish the appetite, misusing a prescription drug can result in health problems down the road.

Dangerous weight loss diets come in all forms, all of which should be avoided. If you want to lose weight, your best bet is to be sensible: Eat healthy foods, whole grains, vegetables, fruit, and protein. Cut out sugar, salt, unhealthy fats and skip second helpings. Drink water at least 8 glasses a day. Learn to deal with stress than by eating or smoking cigarettes. Recognize that the weight will not come off overnight: a healthy rate is one to two pounds per week. Concentrate on learning healthy eating and exercise habits to look and feel better.
