The truth of crash diets.

Do you have a party lined up just after a few days? Or do you want to look slimmer just for yourself? Well, most practiced and effective way of doing that, in a really short span of time, is to crash diet.
So what exactly is crash dieting and what doctors have to say about crash dieting?

According to experts, crash diet is a method to lose weight really fast in a short period of time, by reducing the daily calorie intake to as low as 700 calories a day. And if you don’t know how much that is, it can be said 700 calories per day for an adult is pretty low.

Some popular crash diet programs are - Juice Fast Crash Diet, Xtreme Fat Loss Diet, Cleansing, Cabbage Diet etc.

So does this crash diet thing really work? And if it does, does it have any negative impact over our body? You may ask. Well, there are two groups. One who claims it does, and the other one opposes.
Nutrition experts, however mostly are against Crash Dieting.

“When you limit calories so dramatically, your body goes into starvation mode and your metabolic rate plummets.” says Darcy Johannsen, Ph.D., R.D., assistant professor at Pennington Biomedical Research Centre. She also said, “: Crash diets might be a quick fix, but they can also be awful, dangerous, and come with lasting negative health effects.”

“Because they are nutritionally unbalanced, crash diets can lead to long-term poor health,” says dietitian Ursula Arens.

Says Anjanaa Damodharan, a health freak, "In my opinion, crash diets are generally not a good idea because they don't let you eat what you want. And that causes irritation and physical change as well,"

So what harm a crash diet can do to you?  Here’s a list:

1) Your Metabolism slows down to that point until your body starts to react. Your body tries to conserve energy. So that necessarily means you’ll just move less than normal because you have less energy.

2) So you are restricting your body not only to calories, but to food groups, and that means that your body will not just burn fat, but it can burn down some of the muscles too. And guess what? Well, they might not bounce right back after the crash. Because our body is programmed to rebuilt the fat storage first!

3) Having an empty stomach will have an effect on your mood too. You are bound to lose your charm, along with the weight.

4) Crash Dieting can affect your nervous system. This can make you feel colder all the time, slow down your heart rate, or produce a drop in blood pressure that could even cause you to pass out.

These were just 4 points, but Crash Diet can harm you in more ways possible.

So, losing weight in a gradual manner (hit the gym, swim, yoga etc.) is much more recommended than Crash Dieting.

So quit trying to lose weight by stressing your body and stick to more healthy food regime. Fruits, vegetables, and measured calories will make a healthy diet. Eating healthy will increase your longevity, it’ll boost your energy, help you fight off diseases, lift up your mood and last but not the least, and it’ll help you to lose weight, in a more healthy and prescribed way.

All hurdled up as my mother called us for dinner. The essence of family gathering is in the fun of all having dinner together. My Delhi-wali aunty,Patha wale cousin, Tito, Bublu, and who not. Our 3-BHK flat was filled with people. Everyone I loved and admired was present. But I couldn’t concentrate on the food and conversations, because my mind was somewhere far from our home, our building, and even the town. All I could think about was the vast stadium of Adelaide Oval. It was the game 4 match between India and Pakistan. And I badly wanted to switch on the TV. But because of the lack of space, we merely could all sit on the floor, let alone watch television. And these people seemed so ignorant. How can they be so calm when an India – Pakistan match was on?
After a lot of brainstorming, I reached to my pocket and take out my smartphone. I fired up the UC Web Browser. And voila! There it was, the little blue button that would save my life.No one even noticed, and I felt like I was present in two places, at the same time!
