Some diets are actually very tricky. They seem to come off as that “perfect” meal you have been expecting, but do they really work as expected? Well, they don’t. They only work at first, to fulfill the pretense, and in a short while, you are back to your former state.
Food is essential for our daily growth, so we eat, but there are certain meals that we don’t even bother trying out unless there is something specific about it that we really need. A perfect example for this is when trying to lose weight, not every diet actually work! Below are some of them
1. The Acai diet
The Acai diet is promoted and encouraged due to its high content of antioxidant, and also its ability to improve digestion, detoxify the body, and also slows down aging, it is really popular, so virtually everyone on a weight loss journey go for it. The effect of this diet on weight loss hasn’t been scientifically proven, hence it doesn’t stand as a weight loss standard diet.
2. Very-low-calorie-diets (VLCD)
These are the diets that allow the consumption of about 500 to 800 calories daily, and the shedding of muscle and fat and then, turn down the amount of energy being used to survive an upcoming famine. According to Macklin, it takes advantage of a unique mechanism built into humans that is based upon a million years of evolution. he issue with this is that the weight may come off quickly and fat is regained, instead of muscle and fat. A common example is the Grapefruit diet.
3. The 17-day diet
This diet plan involves a low carbohydrate intake in four stages, whereas in each 17-day stage, dieters take various healthy carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, and protein. It involves cutting down on carbohydrates, which results in reducing the amount of food taken in by such individual as concerns a typical meal. The 17-day diet is a book written by Dr Michael Moreno, but it doesn’t go down well with many physicians, as the rules are too skeptical.
These diets actually work but their effects do not last longer. Is it not best to desist from them totally, rather than falling victim?
