Ladies a simple riddle…..
What is the most common thing urban women are doing .,, simple ….Most of women are dieting . This dieting thing for most women is starvation . I think UN is unnecessarily spending millions to irradicate starvation , they should see women willingly starving themselves. They get that high on torturing their bodies by starving . This diet word is now synonymous to starvation . I think Oxford dictionary people should make this change in their next edition .
Ladies diet is about eating . The right things in right quantity at right time . This will give your body right nutrients . Every nutrient is part of a big production line , if one is missing , imagine the product that will come out . Be informed about what the problems would be if you are going to follow Fad diets . For some time you will see yourself shedding weight but you will have to pay cost of this nutritional imbalance.
Now I will discuss in detail the outcomes of nutritional loss after Fad n wrong diets
Carb Free Diets — people try various low carb diets . But along with shrinking waist line they also experience fatigue , thyroid dysfunction symptoms . Carbs are our main energy source. Our Indian diet is predominantly carb based like rice , wheat etc . So when this main part of diet is eliminated, body gets confused . That affects normal metabolism . If you follow this kind of diet for very long you will suffer with hair loss ,low energy levels ( imagine a pen or a printer cartridge with a very low ink )
So you should have carbs in your diet but you can choose wisely in right quantity .The healthiest sources of carbohydrates—unprocessed or minimally processed whole grains, vegetables, fruits and beans—promote good health by delivering vitamins, minerals, fiber, and a host of important phytonutrients.
Gluten free diets–These are very popular now . They are like a magic wand ,one swish n you get an hourglass figure . Those who have gluten sensitivity have to follow gluten free diets but those who follow it as a fad diet are not really benefitted by it . Only possibility of weight loss could be due to limited food choices without Gluten . But you may end up getting more fat or sugars in food as without binding property of Gluten , manufacturers have to use extra fat or sugars. In fact, research suggests that those who forgo gluten may be more likely to miss out on important nutrients such as iron, B vitamins, and fiber.
Fat Free Diets— This is the most Avoided nutrient in Fad Diets . Fat free diets may infact harm in more ways than the benefits
Eating a diet too low in fat can interfere with the absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Because these nutrients are fat soluble, your body needs dietary fat to utilize them. These vitamins are stored mostly in the liver and fat tissue and are important in bodily functions such as growth, immunity, cell repair and blood clotting. If you’re not eating enough fat to bring these vitamins into your body, they will be excreted, and you may be at risk for a vitamin deficiency.
You are also depriving your body of essential Fatty acids which you get from dietary source . Omega 3s m Omega 6s are important for mental health . They are precursors of many important hormones . Depression is often seen with this low fat diets .
It also affects the nutrient intake balance . The low fat meal will eventually lead to less HDL ( good cholesterol )
Thus the harm outweighs the benefits of low fat diets .
So friends don’t fall pray to these fad diets . They harm your body in many ways . You may get that weight , inch loss but internally you are depriving your body of essential nutrients . You should master the art of Dieting . Starving is not a dieting . Eliminating nutrients from your diet is not Dieting . Everything in right quantity is essential for your well being . If you master this you have mastered the Art of Dieting .
My Friends ,master the Art Of Dieting and go on a path of Happy and Healthy 30s to 50s.
