4 of the Most Dangerous Weight Loss Diets

Who is the woman who does not crave a slim body? Most definitely want it. Even though you may already have a normal body, many still want to lose weight again. To get the ideal body shape, we often try various types of weight loss diets. Without realizing it, some diets you have ever done might be included in a dangerous diet. Anything?

1. Baby food diet

Do you know baby food with pulverized forms like baby porridge? Yes, the baby porridge diet is a diet using baby food for daily consumption.

Baby food is only suitable for babies who do not have teeth and the digestive system is not yet mature, but is it suitable for adults? Certainly not. The baby food diet is done by replacing breakfast and lunch with 14 bottles of baby food containing calories around 25-75 calories per each bottle. Then at night, you can eat food as usual with low calories.

When doing this diet, it is feared that you cannot meet your daily fiber needs, which is around 25 grams per day. The National Fiber Council has warned that the need for fiber that is not sufficient every day can cause digestive problems. In addition, your risk of experiencing binge-eating while on this diet is also higher. This diet makes you lack of fiber, fat, and protein, also makes your body digest the food quickly so you feel hungry faster.

Baby food that has a bland taste and you do not need to chew these foods can make you not feel satisfied after eating. All of this makes you risk to binge-eating at a later time, as Dariella Gaete, RD, quoted from CheatSheet.

In addition, this diet also has the potential to cause you to experience nutritional deficiencies, considering the nutrients needed by babies and adults are very different. So, this diet is not good to do in the long run. Maybe you managed to lose a few kilograms of your weight while on this diet, but after you stop doing this diet and eat more adult food, your weight may come back.

2. Blood type diet

This diet was popular in Asia, you might be one of the people who has tried it. However, is this diet good to do? The blood type diet was developed by Dr. Peter D’Adamo, ND with the aim of losing weight. This diet has the theory that the food you eat will react with your blood type. So, a blood type diet recommends that you eat food according to your blood type, there are certain foods that you can eat and you should avoid according to your blood type. For example, if you have blood type B, you should not eat corn, wheat, peanuts, chicken, tomatoes and sesame seeds, while foods that you can eat are mutton, eggs, green vegetables, and low-fat milk.

This diet has not been proven to help you lose weight in the short and long term. Indeed, no research has been conducted directly related to this. In addition, the Mayo Clinic also considers that eating food according to blood type has no effect on body weight and health. The blood type diet can also potentially cause you to experience nutritional deficiencies because it requires you to avoid certain foods according to your blood type. For example, people with blood type O must avoid milk and seeds, where both types of food are important for heart and bone health. Do you still want to try this diet?

3. Lemon diet or master cleanse

This diet was created by Stanley Burroughs in 1941 with the aim of detoxifying and losing weight. Diet master cleanse is carried out for 3-10 days which is divided into three stages, namely ease in the stage, lemon diet, and ease out. This ease aims to prepare your body before going on a lemon diet. This stage is done for 3 days, you only eat vegetables and fruit juice.

After that, you do the lemon diet stage. At this stage, you only consume drinks made from lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, and water. Take this drink 6-12 times a day or every time you are hungry. These drinks have diuretic properties that can cause you to get lots of water out of your body, so you lose weight. Furthermore, you enter the ease out stage which is the same as the ease on stage.

Because you only drink lemon, your body certainly does not get the nutrients it needs, so this diet is not good to do. You might only get 600-1200 calories per day while on this diet (far from the recommended total calories). As a result, you may experience fatigue, dizziness, and dehydration. In addition, this diet with very low calories can cause you to lose muscle mass and reduce your metabolic rate. After you stop doing this diet and your diet returns, as usual, you can also regain your weight quickly.

4. Grapefruit diet

Grapefruit is an orange fruit with a larger size than ordinary oranges, such as grapefruit. The grapefruit diet became popular since 1930. This diet can help you lose weight instantly. In general, anything that is instant has a bad impact, as well as this diet.

When you go on this diet, you are free to eat anything, meat, chicken, fried foods, cheese, milk, etc., but you must limit carbohydrate intake. In addition, another requirement is that you have to drink 240 ml of grapefruit juice every time you eat. And, you also have to drink 240 ml of water every day.

Grapefruit can be a catalyst for burning the food you eat. The diuretic properties of grapefruit may help you lose water. In addition, fruit also makes you fuller so you can cut your food intake. If you succeed in doing this, you can reduce your weight as much as 24 kg for 2.5 months. The amount is quite a lot, right?

However, consuming only one type of food for a long time and limiting the intake of other foods can make you experience nutritional deficiencies. It is also not good for losing weight in the long term. In addition, grapefruit has not really been proven to burn fat.
