Trying to lose weight? Most people are. On any given day, more than half of all American citizens is on some kind of diet or purposefully restricting their food intake in some way in an attempt to lose weight.
Unfortunately, research indisputably shows that trying to intentionally starve yourself and lose weight is:
1. Not a viable long-term weight loss strategy: you just lose weight for a few weeks or months and then gain it back in two years or less
2. Extremely unhealthy, increasing the risk of diabetes, heart disease, diabetes, abdominal weight gain, etc.
And as any experienced dieter will tell you, dieting typically leads to a host of negative symptoms that can be attributed to the inevitable decrease in metabolic rate caused by the dieting itself—often worsening the root condition that led to a high propensity to store excess fat in the first place.
Symptoms of a reduced metabolic rate include: hair loss, dry skin, low libido and sexual dysfunction, insomnia, frequent urination, nighttime urination, countless digestive problems, mood instability including anxiety and depression, anemia, bone loss, and the list goes on.
Don’t diet. It is extremely dangerous and is not a reliable or effective long-term weight management strategy. Excess body fat may be a problem with health risks associated with it, but dieting is far worse.
