Do Crash Diets Work?

Monday, June 6th, 2016

It depends what your goal is. If you goal is to lose a specific amount of weight by a certain target date, crash DIETS can be very effective. They are not easy to implement, as most of them are very monotone and severely restrict the calorie intake. Also depriving your body of so many calories and valuable nutrition puts a lot of stress on your body.

If your goal is long term WEIGHT LOSS, crash DIETS are less effective. It is the dreaded yo-yo effect. Since you restrict the calorie intake so much your body will go into survival mode, and reduce the calories it burns during normal daily activity. When eventually you start eating normally, it is very easy to now add the pounds back on, since your body is now (at least for a time) burning less calories than it used to, prior to the crash diet.

But, people are successful, short term and long term with crash diets. Just keep in mind that crash diets put stress on your body, are not comfortable to implement (you can’t eat much), and you need to be careful to not gain it all back once you start eating normal

Crash diet makes people lose friends too?

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Crash diet is considered to be unhealthy in the long run. Followers of crash diet not only gain the weight they have lost when they return to regular diet, a survey reveals they also lose friends.

The research released by Nakd Wholefoods has found just how irritating people find their friends when they diet, with a third of them deliberately avoiding those they know to be dieting and a quarter even trying to sabotage their friends’ bids to lose weight, reports

“I`m surprised that so many people are avoiding their friends who crash diet, our research shows that we`re happiest when we`re not on a diet so people shouldn`t feel pressure to crash diet this January – healthy options for snacking alone have become so widely available, and taste great too, so you don’t have to compromise,” said Marina Love, marketing director at Nakd Wholefoods.

The research reveals that two-thirds of the friends, colleagues and partners of dieters find them irritating for a number of reasons: they talk about their diet too much; make them as non-dieters feel bad about themselves for not dieting; find dieters grumpy and miserable; that dieters refuse to socialise and ban treats such as birthday cake.
