6 risks of Miracle Diets

The main risks of Miracle Diets derive from the excessive rapidity with which weight loss occurs. They drastically reduce the calories ingested and generate nutritional imbalances.

As a general rule any diet that prohibits the intake or suggest the unlimited consumption of any food, is not a healthy alternative.

In most cases, not being designed by nutritionists, do not adapt to the sex of the person, or their physical activity. May be contraindicated in some diseases, or if you are taking any medication.

In this article we review 6 risks of the Miracle Diets, so that you can convince yourself that in Nutrition, rushes are bad advisors.

6 risks of Miracle Diets

1.-With miracle diets you lose fluids

If you lose weight without a balanced diet, you reduce weight at the expense of fluids and proteins (muscle), instead of burning excess body fat.

By eating fewer calories the body draws on its reserves of liver and muscle glycogen, converting them into glucose and energy. Since glycogen is water-based, there is a significant loss of fluids.

2.-Unbalanced diets reduce muscle mass

One of the biggest risks of miracle diets, is that weight loss is usually associated with muscle loss, which in turn decreases more the speed of basal metabolism, making it increasingly necessary to reduce more calories or exercise to get more the same weight loss.

3.-Your body adapts

The metabolism, which is a survival machine, adapts to the lower supply of calories, reducing the consumption of basal metabolism. And this effect is definitive, you can only activate the basal metabolism with a muscle toning program.

4.-Metabolism becomes more efficient

From now on your metabolism optimizes your costs and processes to get more energy from any food or drink. Those calories will be stored in the form of fat.

5.-Rebound effect

Among the risks of miracle diets, the one that generates more frustration is the rebound effect. As your metabolism has become more efficient, by going back to your previous habits, you gain weight more easily.

Another side effect that is very difficult to correct is the alteration of blood lipids such as cholesterol or triglycerides.

The rebound effect becomes more evident, in people who, after a strict diet, compulsively return to eating everything they had vetoed, or in people who already have a slow metabolism, as in the case of hypothyroidism or menopause.

6.-They do not educate the habits

The worst of these diets is that they do not teach to eat. If the person does not permanently change their eating habits, it is very difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

Types of miracle diets

Diets of 1,200 calories per day suppose a metabolic aberration because they cause a rapid consumption of fat reserves and acidification of blood pH with the presence of ketones and waste substances in the blood such as acetone.

Protein diets that reduce or suppress carbohydrates (Atkins, Montignac) generate ketosis, because to obtain energy in the absence of glucose, the body metabolizes fat producing ketone bodies that are used as fuel. This state, popularly known as "acetone" because of its characteristic breath odor, has dramatic metabolic consequences, but this type of diet promotes it to suppress the appetite sensation.

Among the side effects of this type of diet can be cited lack of appetite, nausea, halitosis, constipation, deficiencies of fiber, vitamins and minerals, weakness of the immune system, lower intellectual performance, bone decalcification, increase in blood cholesterol, increase in uric acid levels and, in some situations, kidney stones due to the exaggerated consumption of proteins and increased cardiovascular risk due to excessive consumption of saturated fats (red meats, sausages, cheeses, eggs, butter, margarine, mayonnaise or whole milk).

The diets rich in refined carbohydrates that promote the current health recommendations fail to balance Insulin and as will be seen in the coming chapters are inducing Metabolic Inflammation. This type of diet also does not control the appetite, inducing a peck between meals that promotes an increase in body weight.

On the contrary, low fat diets destabilize the hormonal balance and affect mood.

How is a healthy and balanced diet

In Coherent Diet we believe that the only way to lose weight safely is through a healthy and balanced diet.

Only 2 out of 10 people who try to lose weight get it. This is one of the most striking conclusions of the report the Studied about Obesity. 75% of the adult population has tried to lose weight at some point in their lives, 19% go to the doctor to lose weight, while 92% prefer to resort to "miracle diets" despite recognizing that they do not believe in its benefits for health, or its rapid results.
