The Dangers of Losing Weight Too Fast

The dangers of losing weight too fast

The dangers of losing weight too fast

 

A large proportion of adults have been “dieting” once in their lives. In most cases to lose weight, and even better: lose weight super fast! Because the latter is the wish of everyone who suffers from being overweight. It cannot go fast enough, and I understand that impatience very well.

But if you take a look at all the available dietary advice and dietary plans that are available on the internet, I can well imagine that you immediately feel overwhelmed, you don’t know where to start. And on top of that, it appears that a lot of information is very contradictory.

Diet pills, crash diets, juice detox diets and all other diets are available. But lose weight super fast with these extreme diets: Is that effective? And more importantly, is it healthy? Don’t these extreme diets break more than they possibly do well?

Superfast weight loss

The vast majority of nutritionists agree that the biggest problem with super fast weight loss, using crash diets, for example, is that it is not sustainable. Of course, you can exclude whole food groups during a certain period, or literally “survive” on a shockingly low number of calories. Much less than your body actually needs.

But for more than a few weeks, such an “all-or-nothing” diet often doesn’t last. Unable to sustain this for a long time. Not only mentally impossible, but also a very unhealthy one.

Extreme nutritional advice often initiates a slowdown in metabolism, increases anxiety or stress about your food choices, and lowers your energy levels due to thyroid imbalance.


Just to be clear: Making certain changes to your diet, such as omitting processed foods and replacing them with fresh products, is very sensible and will never cause any problems. But it is also important to realize that everyone is different and that a diet that works well for someone else may not be the best for you.


In short: Instead of losing weight super fast with crash animals, I recommend that you practice patience and focus on a longer-term approach. Develop a healthy lifestyle to ultimately lose weight sustainably and permanently.

What are “crash diets”?

According to a commonly used definition, we can describe a crash diet as follows (1):


“A crash diet is a diet in which you eat very limited food or an unusual combination of foods for a relatively short period of time, the goal is to lose weight very quickly. Most people soon get tired of this because it is very difficult to sustain this. These people fall back into their old food habits, and the lost kilos will come back very soon. Often even more! ”


Crash diets are often part of a craze, a fashion image. At one point, diet A is fashionable, and after a few years, it suddenly becomes diet B. These fashion images are often dictated by the media, and especially (often misleading) advertising campaigns.

There are roughly two types of crash diets: Low carbohydrate in combination with many proteins, and high in carbohydrates in combination with low fat.

A few examples of diets that are fashionable for super fast weight loss are:

  • Macrobiotic diet
  • Atkins diet
  • Ornish Diet
  • South Beach Diet
  • Master Cleanse Diet

Extreme diets: Figures and trends

Crash diets will keep coming and going, despite the fact that it is clear that it just doesn’t work.

According to researchers from the Boston School of Medicine, people don’t know that these types of diets often don’t work for longer than a few weeks. They are also unaware that these types of diets have a negative impact on their health and why crash-crash animals fail so often.

Just a few figures from this study (2):

  • No less than 98 percent of the people who lose weight on a diet get the lost weight back within five years.
  • And even worse: 90 percent of people who lose weight get more kilos back than they had originally lost.
  • Only 5 to 10 percent of people retain the new weight. (that is greater than 10 percent of their original weight.)
  • Some of the reasons that diets seem to fail so often are those who lose their willpower or motivation and return to their old habits, people who get sick with hunger and get tired of deprivation and feelings of limitations, and changes in ” internal signals “(hormonal signals) that stimulate the desire to eat.

4 real dangers of super fast losing weight

Superfast weight loss is anything but healthy, we all know that. But before you start to seduce yourself to do this, I want to point out to you four real dangers of super fast losing weight.

Super Fast Weight Loss: No energy and a weak feeling

Because popular diets are often offered to people who want to lose weight at all costs, they are often limited in the types of nutrients and they contain far too few calories. Taking the right amount of calories is important, and it is also very personal. There is no standard for this. It depends on your movement and many other factors, including heredity.

If you sit down a lot, this can have an adverse effect: Your body will respond with the so-called “hunger mode”: That means that your body thinks there is a problem with the food supply, so it goes to the savings mode. All possible available energy sources are stored in case this crisis lasts longer.

Remember very well that even though the scales say that you lose weight, this does not automatically mean that it is also good for your body. The loss of subcutaneous fat is of course very good, and is associated with, among other things, an improvement in insulin sensitivity. But super-fast weight loss also means that you lose a lot of mass in parts of your body where it is not desired, including your muscles. Loss of muscle mass is a major problem with these types of extreme diets.

Many studies (3) have shown that constant diets, especially in combination with extreme sports, have negative effects on your metabolism, feeling hungry, your energy, your mood, your quality of sleep, your hormone balance, your weight, and your reproductive health.

Drastic and super-fast changes in your weight can even affect the tissue of your vital organs, reduce your bone density, and you can even lose muscle mass. Moreover, your cognitive processes (such as thinking, coordination, and memory) will become slower if you do not provide yourself with the right fuel, and of course in the right amount! The result: Bad mood, constant tiredness, and muscle weakness.

Another consequence is a lower production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), a chemical that provides your cells with energy. There will be signals to your brain that something is wrong, so that information can be misinterpreted. All these things have a negative effect on your energy consumption at rest and can even increase the risk of having problems with your metabolism, such as thyroid disorders.

Super Fast Weight Loss: Your metabolism and your hormonal health

Eating less than your body needs can lead to a sort of primal behavior to increase calorie intake very quickly. In other words, you get a clear signal that you are hungry. If you do not respond to this signal by eating more, your metabolism will slow down and eventually you will arrive again. (4) Despite the fact that you eat few calories. So don’t hurry all of them …

Crash diets with far too few calories can reduce your ability to use the energy where it should be. The hormonal signals that are sent to your body try to save energy and store it elsewhere because of a food crisis.

Extreme diets are often associated with sleep disorders, infertility, acne, the eventual increase in body fat, less (muscle) strength, and even depression.

Super Fast Losing Weight: Stress, guilt, and anxiety

Perhaps you can still remember: After another failed attempt to lose weight, you have probably noticed that your mental state, such as your mood, will come under pressure.

The moment you make a choice for a diet, you are often thinking very black and white. You have made the choice, and that is the only right one for you: A “healthy” diet that will finally work. As a result, you will view your environment much more critically. In your eyes, other people who follow a different diet are people who make the wrong choices. You enter into a discussion, which can sometimes end very badly. But not only to your environment, but also to yourself: If you ride a “crooked skate” once, you feel very guilty because you didn’t make it. And this often leads to binge eating, like comfort food.

Research has shown that sufferers often feel guilty or ashamed when they go wrong. This shame, in combination with eating behavior, is often a strong signal that there is an eating disorder. (Bustles, Anorexia, Bulimia) (5)

So if you keep feeling guilty, anxious, and/or uncontrollable about food over and over again, or if you do nothing but convince others of your successes and that they should follow it, then it is high time that you take your own approach to ‘ reviewing healthy eating.

Super Fast Weight Loss: It doesn’t work, a waste of time and effort!

It is of course very tempting to accept an offer that solemnly promises that you will fall super fast with a special diet. These are well-known marketing tricks, but of course, that was what you were looking for, what you want to hear, because you want to get rid of excess weight as quickly as possible, and preferably without too much effort. Such a message often comes in at a moment of weakness or a moment of euphoria because you have made the decision to do something about your overweight.

what 1.800 Cal looks like

But if, for example, you are allergic, intolerant, or highly sensitive to, for example, dairy or gluten, then, of course, it makes sense to avoid these products. But if you feel fine while eating these products in moderation, it can be a big waste of effort to avoid them altogether. Your diet will probably be better balanced with the products to be avoided.

Keep in mind that crash diets, in order to lose weight super fast, will completely overhaul the lifestyle and make you believe that they have to follow this one specific diet, because otherwise, it will turn out badly for you … (6)

Playing on your feelings, another clever marketing trick!

But what then? How can you lose weight permanently?

So diets work to the detriment of your health and are ultimately ineffective. We have just determined that.

But still, everyone is almost desperate to lose weight. How do you do that?

Although there is no panacea for weight loss, there are certainly important steps to take to lose weight sustainably while improving your health.


The old advice “Eat less, exercise more” is true, but certainly not complete. It also matters WHAT you eat!


Online coaching

Since the food shelves are filled with “fat-free” and “low-fat” foods (which almost always have a lot of added sugars) we have become fatter than ever. Here we have misled: The marketing says it is healthier, but that is not the case at all. Unfortunately, they never tell the whole story …

The list of healthy eating habits below is certainly not complete and should serve as a list of short hints to get you on the right track. The road to better health and a healthy weight.

Stop counting calories

A processed meal that is fat-free, sugar-free, and refined ingredients may be the right way, but such a meal also contains no nutrients for your body. Moreover, it also does not satisfy your appetite and good taste compared to nutritious ingredients such as vegetables, lean meat, whole grains, and healthy fat. (7)

If you eat more nutritious food and combine this with more exercise, your body will automatically reach its natural weight.

Replace (light) soft drinks with unsweetened drinks

Diet drinks, the so-called “light” drinks, do not work. These drinks keep you craving sweets. Moreover, these drinks give you a false sense of security: You think you are doing well, but in fact, you are completely destroying all other trouble.

Instead of (light) soft drinks, you can, for example, drink homemade iced tea, or just water (with bubbles) with a slice of lemon. Do not buy Ice tea or buy lemon water, because then you will be completely finished.

Every now and then “sin” is allowed

Unless there is a medical reason for not doing so, you are allowed to sin every now and then. By occasionally allowing yourself to eat a delicious pizza, or just passing by McDonald’s, you have no craving for your (former) favorite food in between. You, therefore, feel less frustrated and you are better able to embrace and continue your new lifestyle.

Banished processed food

Tidy up your fridge, freezer, and pantry. Banish all food that will tempt you to snack. A healthy pantry ensures healthy residents. A condition for this is that everyone must participate, because otherwise, two storage cupboards will be necessary, one with a lock …

It is much easier for everyone to view it as a family challenge. And in the end, the whole family will benefit from all the health benefits.

Make sure you have a supply

Het is belangrijk om altijd een voorraadje gesneden groenten en fruit in de koelkast te hebben, klaar om gegeten te worden. Op deze manier kun je ze gemakkelijk nuttigen op de momenten dat je het even moeilijk hebt en geneigd bent om naar de winkel te rennen voor een grote zak chips. Ook kun je op deze manier gemakkelijk even wat meenemen voor onderweg.

Eat a healthy breakfast every morning

Eating a good breakfast immediately increases your metabolism. (8) If you skip breakfast, you will be bothered by your empty stomach later in the day and you will still be in the danger zone to snack unhealthily.

With everyone I talk about their experiences during their lifestyle change over the past 5 years, I notice again and again that they all say that their healthy breakfast, every morning, has helped enormously.

Healthy breakfasts can include boiled oatmeal, whole-grain cereals, whole-grain bread, eggs, and possibly tofu with a fresh salad. These are all healthy choices, and above all delicious choices!

Avoid processed carbohydrates

Refined carbohydrates (cakes, sweets, cookies, muffins, cupcakes, soft drinks, fruit juice, chips, and supermarket bread) that you eat and are not burned by your body are converted to fat. Body fat. And that’s what you don’t want!

Even foods such as fruit yogurt and many breakfast kinds of cereal contain too much-added sugar in whatever form.

Replace the fruit yogurt with unsweetened Greek yogurt, opt for fiber-rich, and add small amounts of healthy fat to your meals using, for example, slices of avocado, unsalted nuts, seeds, and olive oil.

Finally…

Superfast weight loss is an extremely unhealthy idea. Even if you are so impatient, it just has no effect: The lost kilos will return in no time.

Instead, a healthy lifestyle is a much better, and more sustainable, idea. Not only for weight loss, but especially for your overall health!

EGGS AND CHOLESTEROL

Maybe you have heard that eggs are bad for you because of the high cholesterol?

That’s wrong. There is certainly cholesterol in eggs, but not so much that it is really bad for you. So you don’t have to worry about cholesterol in eggs. That says Jennie Nyenvik, nutrition expert for Aftonbladet.

The end of winter, it’s almost time. And many people have coughed, sneezed or had other ailments in recent months. Now is the perfect time to say that eggs can strengthen your immune system.

Studies have also shown that only two eggs per day can help against viruses, infections and disease.

An egg contains 22% of the daily recommended amount of selenium, an element known to strengthen the immune system.

According to research, extra choline can provide better memory and responsiveness.

4. A WONDER FOR YOUR EYES

Lutein helps keep your eyes clear and sharpens your vision. New research has shown that chicken eggs are rich in lutein, and therefore very good for your eyes.

Lutein is naturally produced by the eyes and protects the retina against damage.

When you eat eggs, you absorb calcium, which is important to strengthen the skeleton and prevent osteoporosis.

As mentioned earlier, eggs contain amino acids that help cells rebuild. This ensures that you do not physically age too quickly.

As we grow older, our need for Vitamin D doubles. For people over 60, 10 micrograms are recommended. An egg can contain approximately 0.7 micrograms.

9. FEWER HEART RISKS

Researchers in Canada have established a clear link between egg-rich foods and a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and certain cancer.

The secret of this? Well, eggs contain two important antioxidants: tryptophan and tyrosine.

People with LDL (low-density lipoprotein) have a greater risk of heart problems. Apparently, eggs can increase LDL and therefore there is a lower risk of heart-related problems.

Healthy food for children: 9 ways to make it fun!

Healthy food for children: 9 ways to make it fun!

kids cooking together is fun

Healthy food for children is important. It causes them to grow, helps the brain develop and it helps against getting overweight. That sounds nice, of course, but having kids eat healthily is not always easy. How to teach children how to eat healthily and keep it fun!

 

1. Set a good example

Do you want your children to eat healthy? Then give the good example yourself. Because, kids copy the behavior of their parents. For example, do not skip your breakfast in the morning. It gives you a good start of the day, so that you have the energy to undertake activities. It also ensures that your blood sugar level remains stable.

2. Provide variation

Back to schools lunchbox idea

By making a variation in the different meals and snacks, you help children to get all the necessary nutrients.

From proteins, minerals and vitamins to fibers, carbohydrates and fats. Moreover, varying products ensures that children get to know different vegetables, fruit types and the like.

Finally, you also keep it exciting and tasty.

For example by repeatedly feeding other food items in the daily lunch box.

3. Make healthy food attractive

Bento spring tulips

It is not just about letting your children taste and smell different things.

The presentation is also important. Just look at unhealthy food like cookies, candy, chips and the like. That often looks super attractive. And that is not for nothing.

Make use of it and serve healthy food for children as delicious as possible. Play with colors. Make fruit and / or vegetable skewers. Cut out vegetables with cookie shapes or serve a meal as a painting that you have prepared with attention.

4. Explain why healthy eating is important

Are your children a bit older? 6 or 7 years? Then you can explain in a simple way why healthy food is important for children and adults.

5. Do your grocery shopping together

webmd_photo_of_family_shopping_fresh_produce_aisle

Do you want to prepare healthy food for children? Then regularly do shopping with your kids together.

At the farmer, at the market or (organic) supermarket. It is a fun and good way to get acquainted with healthy (fresh) products with ease.

Have your children choose a new or unknown product every now and then. Naturally justified.

Or say what you are going to eat and ask if they can look for the ingredients together.

 

6. Let your child help with preparing food

 

Let your child help with preparing food

Involve your children in preparing the meals.

Let them wash the vegetables, weigh products, cut fruit into pieces, stir in the pans, cover the table and so on.

For example, baking a healthy pizza or making ice creams together are also ways to teach children how to eat healthy and tasty at a young age.

 

7. Try new things

Children often do not like all foods.

Do not let that stop you from cooking what you want. Encourage your children to taste Try new foods

what is on the plate. In addition, stimulate their taste buds by regularly cooking new dishes and putting other products on the table.

Do your children not like it?

Do not get mad.

Punishment often works counterproductive.

Prefer to say that it takes a while before you want something.

Approach it positively.

Give compliments and keep going.

At a certain moment the food is getting better and easier.

8. Eat together at the dinning table

Family eating together at dinner table

Calm and regularity there are children sailing.

Therefore, preferably eat at fixed times. Do that together at the table and eat with attention.

Without distraction from TV, tablet, smartphone and the like.

Just create a wonderful moment of peace for you together.

That is also part of a healthy lifestyle and a healthy diet for children.

 

9. Prohibiting does not help

say no to junk food

Is your child fond of cookies, candy or chips?

Then you can of course prohibit that. But, approach it differently. Make agreements about when you go home.

For example in the weekend on Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon and then make a fun happening.

Serve a tasty cake with the tea or choose a bowl of chips with a glass of juice.

Also try healthy alternatives. Who knows, kids might like it.

wanna have this while you can have these

More about healthy food for children

There are still plenty of ways to think of for your children to eat healthier.

For example, by choosing responsible snacks and serving healthy thirst quenchers as water or tea.

Sufficient and good sleep is also good for your hunger and satiety. Because, are you sleeping too little?

Then you are more hungry.

Oh yes, and do you get your children at school, while playing with friends or a birthday party sweets, snacks and such?

Do not make it too difficult for yourself. It is almost impossible to ban that. Choose healthy food for children at home.

Green smoothie with apple and garbage

Belly Fat Burning With Green Smoothies, How Many Smoothies Should You Drink?

How many smoothies should you drink? Do you want to start burning belly fat with green smoothies?

If you want to consider it as a diet, two green smoothies per day are the healthiest way of this type of diet. If you drink green smoothies all day long then you have a chance that you will lose all the weight you lose when you stop.

So you want to strategically deal with your meals to reduce calories, without counting them by the way, because that is simply horrible while maintaining a healthy balance in what you eat.

And last but not least, if you only drink green smoothies in a day, then you will long for solid food and in the long run, you will not keep drinking green smoothies full.

I experienced this myself during my juice fast 30-day experiment. I only drank smoothies for ten days, but afterward, I was consumed by the desire for solid food and something I could chew.

The healthiest and easiest way to start burning belly fat with green smoothies is probably to replace both your breakfast and lunch with a green smoothie.

Then choose a healthy meal that contains little carbohydrates, with just a good piece of meat/fish and salad and/or vegetables.

Meditate to lose weight, 5 minutes a day!


Meditate to lose weight, 5 minutes a day!

Meditation. It calms your brain, makes you (10%) happier and helps you work and live better meditation for everyone, without hippie kind of circumstance and with all beneficial effects, in at least 5 minutes per day.

A considerable percentage (10%), for such a simple action that anyone can execute without expenses, resources or complicated situations. Yes you too, because meditation is just for people who are on the ground with both feet, in the middle of a busy life. Meditating has little to do with transcendental spiritual experiences, dream catchers and hippie states.

The final conviction came for me from the fact that everyone who has to deliver top performances meditates; athletes, doctors, lawyers, students, military and CEO s do their best to be better in their profession and happier in their lives.

“Happiness is a skill that you can learn”. You can learn happiness … By training the lucky muscles in your brain with – of course – meditation.

Please see it like that. As an exercise of your brain, which is necessary to keep your head healthy. Just as you put on your shoes to take good care of your body, you close your eyes regularly to focus on your ‘brain muscles’. Nothing crazy, nothing complicated, nothing in higher spheres, something that makes you 10% happier, healthier and more productive. Because yes, you have that in your own hands. So do something with it!

Meditation to lose weight it will help you with that hunger feeling

Leave snacks, sweat for hours at the gym, and drink lots of healthy shakes. Some of the best known ways to lose weight. However, there are many more ways that can help you lose weight. For example, meditation is a very good tool for losing weight. Below you can read what meditation can do to prevent obesity.

Emotional eaters

Hungry-Emoji

Many people who are dealing with obesity are emotional eaters. Factors such as stress and tension can have a very negative effect on weight. The emotional eaters do not eat because they are hungry. Emotional eaters simply eat because food makes them happy. But of course nobody is really happy after an eating mood swing. After all, you wanted to lose weight. So the joy is short-time.

Prevent emotional eating through meditation

Emotional eaters benefit greatly from meditation. Through meditation, you come into better contact with your feelings and thoughts. You are more aware of actions, and there is more peace in your head. Meditating significantly reduces stress. As an emotional eater you no longer have such a need to eat away the stress. But also through meditation, you can switch the band you have with food. And see if that hunger feeling is real.

Google ‘intermittent fasting’ and you’ll see pages full of advice, tips, and secrets on the best ways to integrate this health trend into your daily life. But the more you look into it, the more confusing it all becomes. It’s not really that confusing, but because there are so many options on how to implement fasting in your daily eating schedule that the amount of choices makes it confusing. Is eating every other day best? Eating only before 3 p.m.? Packing all your calorie consumption into an 8-hour window? While people have been practicing intermittent fasting for thousands of years, it’s only in the past two decades that scientists began to understand what, if any, potential benefits the practice can have.  Here’s the good news: According to recent studies, nearly all types of intermittent fasting are physically and mentally harmless. And nearly all of them can result in some weight loss.

That’s precisely why doctors often force you to fast for eight to 12 hours before a blood test. That abstaining period gives your body time to reach a state where it’s not influenced by food. I strongly recommend to my clients the 4-4-12 cycle as this is an easy way to get used to non-eating hours.
