This Is Why You Should Avoid Quick Weight Loss Diets

December 3, 2019


Many people resort to quick weight loss diets because they are effective and the results are visible almost instantly.

However, this “effect” lasts for a short period of time since these diets make you lose weight due to a quick calorie reduction or water weight loss, which is why their effect is easily reversible.

However, these are pretty unhealthy and can lead to more serious health problems.

According to Judy Penta, a certified holistic health counselor and personal trainer with Patients Medical in New York City, these quick weight loss diets are pretty unhealthy and often lead to more serious health problems.

“The fad diets succeed at jolting you from the grind of mindless snacking, eating junk food on the run, and all the calorie and fat-packed extras like whipped cream in the cappuccino, or grabbing a slice of pizza on the way home from work. Just making these lifestyle adjustments is usually enough to see some weight loss,” says Penta.


Since most of these diets don’t meet the basic nutritional needs of your body, they can lead to major health issues and it would be wise to know the symptoms of a quick weight loss diet not being healthy for your body. These are:

  • Muscle cramps
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Fainting
  • Dehydration
  • Severe constipation or diarrhea
  • Mood changes
  • Constant hunger

Make sure you consult your doctor or your nutritionist before trying any new diet. It is always bets to be on the safe side.
