Choosing Sustainable Diets Over Crash Diets For Long Term Results

posted on 20 Mar, 2018

It’s never too early or too late to work towards a healthier you. Whether it’s about fitting into a dress for a party, getting rid of that flab or the desire for a toned body, there’s no dearth of reasons to switch to a healthier diet. But here is a gentle reminder – there is no miracle for weight loss. There is no quick fix.

Why Crash diets fail:
Crash diets may look effective, but they have a major impact on your health. These short-term plans are not sustainable, and thus need to be avoided. Crash dieting affects the metabolic rate and eventually leads to future weight gain as the body starts to store more fat to meet future caloric requirements. Apart from weight gain, continuous crash diets gradually affect your heart health and may increase risk of cardiac arrest.

Choosing a Balanced diet over Crash diets:
When it comes to weight management and fitness, Aspects like eating lesser and a balanced diet should not be confused with crash dieting. The aim of following a diet is to ensure disciplined and healthy eating: nutritionally balanced meals, less of processed food, and timely consumption. Weight loss through healthy diet is best sustained when it happens at a gradual pace. Also, bringing in appropriate lifestyle changes such as stress management, exercise etc. is as important as the diet itself. If you are determined to stay fit, then your focus should be on health and not just weight.

Here are some fixes to your diet plan that will help you shed those extra kilos and stay fit:

  1. Completely excluding certain foods is dangerous. Not consuming important food groups may result in a serious deficiency of certain nutrients. It may lead to frequent headaches, nausea, and other health issues.
  2. A low carb diet is a good idea but make sure you select the diet wisely as some food items may be high on fats instead.
  3. Soups are nothing but a fad. Scientifically, there is no evidence that they work for long-term weight loss. They may give you temporary results but in the long run, the results are temporary.
  4. Skipping meals is never a good idea. Replace your major meals or irregular snacking with healthy substitutes as smaller but frequent meals are a smart way to stay fit.

Apart from the above fixes, the best way to lose weight and stay fit is by making some permanent changes in your eating and exercising routine. A few changes can help you get better results, such as controlling consumption of salt, fat, sugar, alcohol, etc.. Make physical activities like jogging in the morning, playing your favourite sport or an evening stroll a part of your daily routine.
Kick start your weight loss plan that emphasises more on a healthy lifestyle and be the winner.
