Fad-diets, diet pills or extreme diets will always fail you sooner or later and the reasons behind are:
They cut out essential macronutrients. Fad diets that eradicate an entire group of macronutrients such as protein diets or High-carb or zero fat diets, are unrealistic, unhealthy and will simply fail you in the long run. The best way to lose weight and maintain it is to practice moderation. Cutting out a singular macronutrient completely will lead to nutritional and hormonal imbalances which can actually cause you to put on extra weight after a while.
You’ll lose weight but you’ll have trouble keeping it off. When it comes to extreme diets that reduce your caloric intake severely they only work for a short time period. Once switch back to normal eating, you will surely gain the some of the weight back. Moreover, you’ll put on the weight more quickly since restricting calories slows down your metabolism.
You feel as if you are deprived. Since fad diets make you feel deprived, you are more likely to cheat on such diet plans. Cheating once in a while won’t do you much harm, but when it comes to fad diets individuals feel the need to cheat frequently. The binging and under-eating cycle will put too much stress on your body and will wreak havoc on your metabolism.
