Don’ts

Don’t Starve

Starving your way into weight loss might sound logical and attractive, but do not do it any cost. Depriving yourself of food intake will definitely help you lose weight at a rapid rate but it definitely isn’t healthy. It pushes your body into survival mode wherein your body slows down the rate at which fat is burnt and begins to retain as much water as possible.

Supplement-Heavy Diet

Do not implement a weight loss program that is heavily dependent on supplements. Too much supplements can turn out to be dangerous as they contain stimulants that result in heart problems, increase the risk of heart disease, raise blood pressure levels, and result in permanent damage. If you are or wanting to take supplements, do consult an experienced medical professional.

Miracle Cures

Like all-important things in life, weight loss also doesn’t come easy and requires dedication and hard work. Remember that there are no miracle cures. If you come across any programs or diet plans that promise rapid weight loss in a short time, remember that you will be trading in your health for weight loss. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably isn’t. The Internet is full of such scams

Solely Depend on Food Intake

If you expect to lose weight only by modifying your food intake, you will fail. You will initially see success with respect to weight loss when you lower your food intake, but your body will soon get adjusted to the new diet and the metabolism slows down in accordance with it. Hence, you will stop losing weight after some time. Hence, you need to exercise or indulge in other physical activity to burn off more calories than you intake in order to lose weight or maintain the desired weight.

Walk Away From Indulgences

Do not completely deprive yourself from indulgences. The key is moderate indulgence. By completely depriving yourself from indulgences, you only put your whole weight loss plan in jeopardy. The reason being that indulgences when restricted soon turn into cravings, which in turn results in binge eating and overeating. There is no point to a clean healthy lifestyle when you constantly dread for unhealthy food. Hence, it is best to give in to indulgence while practicing moderation.
