Upcoming fad in the society; fad diets!

Jul 27, 2008
Society has this grand illusion of how a person should look; keeping that in mind, there is a great deal of people out there making profits feeding off this notion of how a person should look. Fad diets have come to age and it seems they are making a huge impact on people and not always in a positive way. Fad diets are designed to help people lose weight fast and usually not in a healthy way.

Common fad diets:

A liquid diet restricts you from having any sort of solid food or eatables. It suggests the inclusion of only liquid juices etc. whenever you feel hungry. This manner may ensure that you lose weight, if you cope with this regime regularly, but the moment you start eating back, the lost pounds would start showing. Reason for the same is that your body is no more accustomed to digest the solid diet. Also this fad diet doesn't provide your body with necessary vitamins and nutrients.

Another not so healthy fad diet is the cabbage soup diet. It restricts you to one certain food for a number of days, which, again, denies your body of the vitamins it needs. The ice cream diet falls into this category as well; although it sounds tempting, one cannot expect to be healthy eating just one source of food and expect your body to stay energized and fully functional.

High intake of protein diets may give good and satisfying outputs but may cause serious damage to your system. Such diets claim that high dose of proteins will help you reduce weight and build good muscles. Do not trust this claim. Muscles are only built under careful weight training; even doctors agree to this. High protein can cause serious damages to liver and kidney.

Diets like Atkins are very low-carb diets and are designed to exclude whole grains from the meal. This will reduce the intake of fibers and roughage in the diet; hence the body will not get the required minerals, magnesium and thiamine. In the absence of dairy products, there will be no calcium and Vitamin D. Absence of fruits and starchy vegetables will reduce the inclusion of Vitamin A, C and Potassium. Hence, if you are a physically active person, and your routine includes exercise, this kind of regime is not suitable for your body.
