12 Jan 5 Tips to Create A Healthful Diet [Infographic]
We suggest focus on Healthful Diet rather than restrictive diet. Here I’m putting forward some evidences and solutions, why fad diets is not the way to become healthy.
When you restrict calories enough to drop below your body’s natural set point weight range, your body will push back, causing you to regain weight. Over time, repeatedly losing and regaining weight (yo-yo dieting) may leave your health in a worse place than if you never dieted.
Evidence suggests that repeatedly losing and gaining weight is linked to cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes and altered immune function.
“You can initially lose 5 to 10 percent of your weight on any number of diets, but then the weight comes back,” said Traci Mann, UCLA associate professor of psychology.
“Nearly 65 percent of dieters return to their pre-dieting weight within three years” according to Gary Foster of the Weight and Eating Disorders Program at the University of Pennsylvania.
For most of the women dieting has become a favourite passtime. Even if they are in their normal weight range they love to keep trying different gimmicks.
Losing weight by changing your habits and taking your time is much healthier than losing weight quickly. We promote Nourish and Flourish, rather than Starve and Shrink.
