Diet Basics

The idea of beginning a diet may seem like a daunting task. For most people it will be difficult to give up old easting habits and develop new ones. You need to keep in mind that not all diets are good diets.

You can actually cause more harm than good while adhering to certain diets. It is important that you have well balanced meals and you do not try to cut out necessary nutrients. Also, another important thing to remember is that people will often times make mistakes while on a diet. We are humans and none of us are perfect so therefore expect to have some slip ups every now and then.

If you are confused and do not know much about diets, do not worry, you are not alone. The following chapter will touch base on the basics of diets and provide you with helpful information that will put you off on a good start with your new diet.

 

The Basics

Eating a healthy diet is very important for the overall health and well-being of your body. Certain foods are packed with nutrients that are great for your body while others are packed with processed foods and sugars which are unhealthy for you.

For most people a serious diet will not be needed. The majority of people usually just need to cut a few things out of their current diet and replace them with a few new things. Some people may actually need intense diets with strict limits on carbs allowed per day as well as calories.

These types of foods should be limited with anybody, but those on strict diets can have almost none. There are many different diets and different diets work with different people. You just need to find the one that works for you and suits your needs.

The following are some examples of diets that can be dangerous and should be avoided:

Fad Diets:

It is important that you are aware of how dangerous fad diets can potentially be. In most cases these fad diets do more harm to the person than it does good. This is because fad diets usually involve nearly starving yourself. The amount of food a person is allowed to consume in these diets is usually quite minimal. Not only is it unhealthy to limit your food intake to ridiculous portions these fad diets also set many people up for failure.

 

This is because the person on the diet will likely continuously feel hungry. This will likely eventually lead to binge eating and eventually completely abandoning the diet. The problem with that is the fact that if you have been nearly starving yourself, your metabolism has greatly slowed down. Now you will notice that every little thing you eat packs more pounds on.

Many of these fad diets will also cause a person to feel weak and be more susceptible to certain illnesses. This is again due to the fact that most fad diets do not allow a person to consume all of the proper nutrients needed to produce energy throughout the day.

Tape Worms:

Can you believe that some people resort to eating tape worms to lose weight? Well you better start believing. This is actually starting to become quite a popular trend. This is probably due to the fact that people feel as if it is an easy way to diet. After all, they do not need to change their diet or limit their food consumption. Also, they will lose weight without exercising.

These seem like great benefits, right? Wrong! Consuming tape worms to lose weight is a terrible idea. It can be very damaging to a person’s body. Tape worms are parasites which feed off of their host, which would be you.

Eating tape worms can lead to bloating, severe weight loss, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and loss of appetite. In severe cases can cause seizures, confusion, headaches, and even death! That does not sound like a beneficial diet to me, more like a death wish. Do not fall victim to the tape worm diet!

 

Cotton Ball Diet:

The name of this diet sounds crazy right? That is because it is crazy. It is exactly what it sounds like. Some people thought it would be a good idea to consume cotton balls in order to diet because they would make them feel full. Apparently their reasoning comes from the fact that cotton balls are low in calories. Well they are also extremely high in fiber which will likely lead to intestinal blockage over time. Sure they may lose weight, but it will be because they are in excruciating abdominal pain because their intestines are about to burst. This diet is a terrible idea and you should never try it!

Those were just a few examples of the countless dangerous diets that exist. Do not fall into trends and cause harm to your body. It is best to find a healthy balanced diet that works for you. The following chapters in this book will begin to go over how you should set your diet up in order to make it work for you and help you reach you goals of having a healthy body and a better life.
