there are a lot of popular diets out there so we thought we create a simple video investigating which ones are scientifically sound and actually work from the outside it seems like a simple equation your weight is determined by the balance between the calories you take in in the calories you burn by changing or your activity level you can tip this equation towards weight gained or lost which brings us to our first category of diets calorie restriction companies like Weight Watchers clean you can eat whatever you want as long as you stay below a prescribed number of daily calories getting all your calories from junk food is technically allowed but from a health perspective it’s important to think about the nutritional value of the foods to if you don’t you risk our problems nutrient deficiencies and chronic health issues calorie restriction with optimal nutrition or cron diet generally reduce their caloric intake by 20% will still meeting the daily nutritional requirements for example instead of having a whole Apple ekron Dieter might just have the apple skin which contains most of the nutrients if used properly.
and not excessively calorie restriction can be a safe and effective tool for weight loss next up is carb restriction many time it’s like the South Beach Atkins or Zone Diet suggest that carbs are the enemy of the Fit Body you’ve always dreamed of the ideology claims that one more carbs are taking in them burned off the liver converts them into fats but for most healthy reasonably active people carbs are broken down into glucose and transported to the cells for energy very little is actually turned into fat in response to excessive glucose in the body uses insulin to turn it into glycogen which is stored in the liver and muscles this glycogen me later be broken down in times of low glucose to refuel the body but the type of carbs you eat do matter those from simple sugars like honey fruit or sugar or more Valley turned into triglycerides are fat then complex carbs like whole grains and veggies if you consistently eat way more than necessary and most calories are from simple cards then these will be converted to fat low carb diets off and have extreme risk.
at first no starches like bread or pasta and no sugars including from fruits or even alcohol this can lead to some intense side effects including constipation dry mouth bad breath fatigue dizziness and nausea in studies carb restriction dieters tend to lose weight faster initially compared to those simple using powdered restriction but this is likely due to water loss which returns and later phases when you’re encouraged to eat normally again on top of this the Atkins diet for example promotes caloric intake from high fat and high protein sources which means Meats cheeses cream butter and losing weight sounds pretty good right but many Doctors show concerns over the high intake of saturated fat that it may lead to more bad cholesterol and therefore an increased risk of heart disease some clean these diets are dangerous and unhealthy giving up a promote delimitation of foods like carrots sweet potatoes or apples that provide the body with important micro nutrients and vitamins instead people require supplements which the body is not able to absorb as effectively.
vitamins minerals and micronutrients in Whole Foods then there are high protein diet the main principle is that protein-rich foods are not as easily broken down by the body and take more energy to digest than carrbridge food this means you won’t feel hungry again as quickly and you’re more likely to run a caloric deficit then if you ate the same number of calories from carbs the paleo diet for example suggest that 10000 years ago agriculture was introduced and the human diet change from hunter-gatherers eating primarily meat wild fruits veggies and nuts to diets containing more grains and as a result of some believe the human body isn’t designed to digest these processed foods like grains Dairy and breads some also believe that grains leads to inflammation related health problems but this is largely untrue except in the case of people with celiac disease but because of it straight forward guidelines many find it easy to follow and it does promote more nutrient absorption however as paleo cuts out all grains and legumes we lose an important source of dietary fiber necessary to keep Barb.
I was running smoothly not to mention the high protein leads to nitrogen production meaning stinky farts add to that constipation which allows your digestive material to sit longer in the large intestine and continuing to decompose and yep even smell your farts there’s another class of diets we might call that just stopped eating diets that was looking to get SlimQuick might be tempted to only eat cabbage soup for 7 days or do the master cleanse diet which only allows salt water in the morning and a concoction of water maple syrup lemon and cayenne pepper through the day and a laxative tea at night but besides are exceptionally unhealthy not only is most of your weight loss from water weight but there are many side effects such as dizziness fatigue dehydration and nausea the master cleanse can even lead to a white tongue which some claim is the toxins leaving your body but it’s actually due to swelling and a yeast infection of the mouth and after going through all that you’re likely to gain any weight loss after stopping then of course there are straight-up crazy diets.
like eating cotton balls dipped in soup or juice so that you feel full which of course provides hardly any nutritional content and can cause intestinal blockages which requires surgical intervention or how about this Sleeping Beauty diet where you just sleep candy if you’re always asleep the truth is most eyes focusing on quick dramatic results also have a yo-yo effect where you lose initial weight but slow down your metabolic rate so your body starts burning less calories and then when you start eating again there is all the weight back and often more after falling contestants from the show with the Biggest Loser for 6 years of some of which would lose hundreds of pounds into a 7-month scientist notice something interesting not only did most of the participants in the study regain their weight but their metabolic rates changed one man in particular and I burn 800 calories a day then would be expected for a man his size this is 6 years after leaving the show showing how to Extreme Measures to lose weight while they may be successful at the time and half.
