Lose Weight Really Fast-The Perils of Crash Diets

There are many diets and weight loss products on the market today for those of us who desire to lose weight.

Unfortunately, those who have the "I want to be thin now" mindset many times may fall for the numerous crash diets out there. They don't realize these diets can make them more fat in the long term!

How can this be? It is because those diets which call for people to consume fewer than 1200 calories a day cause them to lose muscle tissue AND fat. What also will happen is the body fat percentage will actually increase, the opposite of what most dieters want to happen.

Other health perils include increasing chances of heart disease. It sounds strange, but it is true. This happens because the blood cholesterol levels increase when weight loss happens too quick. This also results in gaining weight back quickly after the initial loss.

 Even more concernful is that losing weight too quickly accelerates the rate at which cholesterol goes to the blood cells.

Lastly, crash diets are bad for your overall health because they can make dieters more susceptible to infections.

The bottom line is this: if you need weight loss help and the right diet information, always talk to your doctor first as well as an expert in nutrition and fitness. These guys will get you started off on the right track!

It's a not a good suggestion of having crash diet without doing any stomach exercise.
