If your plans for the coming year include a new and easy silhouette, you do not use any of the diets below. Not only they are invasive, but they are not based on any principle of healthy eating. And long-term effects can be devastating.
Celebrities are constantly subjected to pressure in terms of the number of kilograms and silhouette, which is why they often resort to extreme methods to keep fit. Unfortunately, these extreme diets have become trends and are copied by millions of women worldwide.
So, here are top ten most dangerous diets that can jeopardize your health.
1. Dukan Diet
The diet promoted by Jennifer Lopez, Gisele Bunchen and Kate Middleton has been listed as the most dangerous diet. Nutritionists warn that it is not balanced lifestyle and has very unpleasant side effects such as lack of energy, constipation, bad breath. On the long term, eliminating certain foods can cause osteoporosis and kidney problems.
2. Atkins Diet
Diets which recommend the banning of carbohydrates and encourage high protein consumption are the most dangerous because they can cause endocrine dysfunction and renal disease.
Atkins diet prohibits carbohydrates. Not recommended because it is very unnatural. Deficiency of nutrients almost always leads to the onset of other conditions and variations in weight.
3. Six weeks to OMG (Oh, my God, you look so fine)
It is a very strict diet that will get you a perfect body. Experts in the UK Dietetic Association called it the “six weeks of hell and isolation”, because you start exercise early in the morning after a black coffee and a cold bath to burn stored body fat.
4. Banting Diet
Banting diet means reducing fluid intake. Each day the diet recommends one kilo of lean meat or a kilo of cheese and 100 g fruit and vegetables. Accumulation of toxins from meat can later lead to serious illness and lower life expectancy. Reducing the intake of fluids is also very harmful, leading to increased uric acid levels.
5. Alcorexia or Drunkorexia
A stupid diet that means eating very low during the week to allow consumption of alcohol in weekends. It’s very popular among young people and it is bad on two levels: first, it deprives the body of necessary nutrients, and includes a lot of alcohol.
6. Hollywood Diet
Hollywood Diet recommends more protein and exotic fruits, which would provide the necessary enzymes for losing weight. On this diet, there are many hidden fats. It also prohibit dairy products, which can cause a calcium deficiency.
7. KEN (Ketogenic Enteral Nutrition)
A very common diet for brides who want to fit inside their wedding dress. This involves the complete removal of food and feeding with a liquid containing nutrients and proteins inserted directly into the stomach through a tube.
8. Party Girl Drip
It is a diet that some celebrities like Rihanna and Simon Cowell use when they reach exhaustion. It was initially used to treat those suffering from malnutrition and involves injecting a cocktail of vitamins, calcium and magnesium.
9. HCG diet
This is a diet that is as bizarre as it is popular. This implies the consumption of 500-800 calories a day (considering that a healthy adult needs about 1,700 calories per day), supplemented with injections containing a specific pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin. Do we need to go into further details, because this already sounds very strange?
10. Maple syrup diet
The diet that Beyonce bragged about in the past, presenting it as a miraculous way for weight loss and detox. The Maple syrup diet consists of drinking a mixture made from lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper, which is drunk several times a day for ten days. Besides this juice, it is recommended the consumption of a herbal laxative tea and drink salt water in the morning on an empty stomach.
Throughout the day, the diet does not allow more than 1300 calories and foods that are permitted are generally poor in calcium, iron, zinc. Nutritionists draw attention to the fact that it is dangerous for the health and, in fact, it should not be followed for more than 2 days.
In addition, more often you don not lose fat, but muscle mass.
Pay attention. These diets are not a solution, for either short term or long term. Eating should be a pleasure, not something forbidden.
