If you follow Hollywood celebrities at all, you would know that every once in a while, a celeb would shock his or her fans when the celeb manages to lose lots of weight quickly. In fact, this should not be a surprise at all Actors, after all, often have to play roles which require body types that are very different from their regular body types. Fans often show a weird mixture of horror, shock, curiosity, and, yes it is true, envy when they see their celeb drop some serious pounds. In fact, some look downright emaciated or starved. Most of these crash diets all involve serious calorie intake reduction. Some just drink fluid to lose weight. The truth is drastic weight loss programs are bad news. Don’t do it. Here are the reasons why you should never go on a crash diet that involves fasting or serious calorie reduction.
Your Body Might Not Be Able To Handle The Shock
Your body is a very complicated piece of biological machinery. It is like a symphony hall of organs, enzymes, hormones, vitamins, nutrients, and other inputs which have to work together precisely. If any one item goes wrong or doesn’t work as planned, you might face serious health risks. This is the reason why your body tends to have a weight equilibrium point. Your body prefers a certain weight. Now, if you drop that weight by fasting, your system might get shocked and your body chemistry, hormone levels, and enzymes might have a tough time adjusting. This might trigger susceptibility to all sorts of problems later.
Your Body Requires Certain Nutrients
In addition to shocking your system, going on a fast effectively robs your body of certain nutrients it might need. These nutrients might help regulate or facilitate everything from your hormones to your brain functions to your blood circulation. Make sure you take nutritional supplements if you were to fast. However, the best policy would be to avoid fasting altogether.
You Will Probably Gain It All Back And Much More
The worst part of fasting is what happens next. Sure, you achieved a massive reduction in weight but how long will it last? Remember, your body is like a balloon-you push on one end, and the other end will swell up. If you go on a fast, you might lose weight now but your body might get back at you later by getting fatter and bigger.
