Risks of Drastic Weight Loss
Everyone wants to be slim in a matter of days. But when we think of this, we forget the time spent in gaining this weight. If gaining weight was not overnight, then how can we lose in just a matter of days or weeks? To lose weight drastically, you will find many solutions in the market like weight loss pills, meal replacement shakes, trendy diet plans etc. Most of them are entirely unbalanced. They are high on one nutrient and deficient in others like high protein diet, crash diets, very-low-calorie diets, low carb diet, low-fat diet, detox diets, food-specific diet, low carb- high fat diet, low fat – high carb diet, and whatnot. The result of all these may be loss of few kilograms initially but then gaining it back at a much higher rate. Different studies have suggested that this long-term struggle with weight leads to a greater risk of obesity.
Moreover, losing weight drastically brings mental and emotional disturbances and lots of side effects like nutrient deficiency, irritability, fatigue, muscle loss, hair loss, dehydration, gallstones, headaches, menstrual irregularities, sagging skin and constipation etc.
The mantra for healthy weight loss is - slow and steady wins the race, which means losing weight gradually in the most natural way. It is always advisable to take smaller steps. You need to have patience and set your goals realistically. It is not just about losing extra kilos; it is much beyond that. You need to rethink about your food practices and exercise. Opt for healthy food choices with the right combination of exercise, and this can work like magic.
Start with 15 – 20 minutes of a brisk walk or some exercise and then slowly increase it. Be realistic. Do not try to change things overnight.
When it comes to food, understand your shortcomings, set realistic goals and be specific. Do mindful eating. You can eat almost everything when cooked at home. Your food should be low on calories, normal in protein, vitamins, minerals, restricted in fats and simple carbohydrates. Most importantly, it should be rich in fiber, as fiber rich foods are low in calories and gives satiety. Do not skip any meal, be cautious of the quantity of food eaten in one meal.
