Having excess body weight often make us less confident. But it can actually be solved by implementing a healthy diet and regular exercise
Ironically, until today there are still ways thinking and unhealthy by some people to reduce their weight. Let’s look at some of the ways that popular, and dangerous a person does to lose weight, and see what exactly is wrong with the way it is:
* Skipping meals or starve
When you’re trying to lose weight, the first thing that comes to mind is to eat less, then the weight will come down. Or maybe you’ll think to skip meals, especially at breakfast.
This way is totally wrong! Even though quite successful in this way to cut weight, but you will also lose muscle and fluid, which can lead to bigger health problems.
* Drugs or supplements
This method may glance looks easy to lose weight. But experts say that diet pills are mostly just filled with caffeine and diuretics can cause dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. These drugs work by reducing appetite and make you not feel hungry, thus reducing the amount of food intake. As a result, the body will experience a shortage of energy, which leads to the conservation of calories.
* Colon Cleansing, detoxification
Colon cleansing is a way to cleanse the colon by using water that has been cleared by filtration (filtering), irradiation with ultra violet light, and heated to a temperature corresponding to the human body. But the way it really will not only lose fat but it water and excreta. Experts say that every human body actually has its own detoxification mechanisms are more efficient. This method will only disrupt the body’s systems.
* Drugs stimulating vomiting, laxatives
In some people who do a very strict diet, use of stimulant medications vomiting may be a primary choice. But you should be aware of the threat behind the use of the drug. Experts say that the stomach contents containing acid levels are very high, so that if someone is too frequent vomiting, can cause erosion in the lining of throat, mouth, teeth and gums, which triggers the development of cancer.
Not only that, the intensity of vomiting, which are too often also lead to dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. This method is very dangerous.
* Exercise extreme
Doing exercise excessively and tend to force is no different than other strict diets (such as skipping meals or fasting). This method will not be effective to eliminate the weight you want. Punish yourself by exercising your body will only lead to extreme fatigue, increased risk of injury, electrolyte imbalance, and psychological affects you.
Even though this looks a little crazy and have a tremendous influence, experts say that some people will usually take tobacco products to lose weight. Many people do not feel hungry and loss of appetite as they smoke. However, tobacco will actually trigger the emergence of a bigger problem than just a weight problem. Smoking will make you at risk of developing diseases like lung cancer, heart problems and stroke.
