All of us want to lose weight and preferably fast. But sometimes we adopt the wrong measures to lose weight.
Here are some weight loss habits that you should never resort to:
- Pill popping
Nothing can ever replace eating real food. It is better to eat food that is nutritious, with the right amount of vitamins and minerals and contains all the elements present in the food pyramid. Pills are empty calories no doubt but these supplements have been manufactured for those who are severely lacking those.
This is the most common mistake people who want to lose weight make. Instead of losing weight, you’ll land up losing all your muscle mass as your body goes into fat conservation mode.
- Throwing up after meals
A sign of being bulimic is throwing up. If you feel that you have added a ton of calories by stuffing yourself, making yourself throw up is definitely not the way to do it.
You will get into the habit and become a wreck. Your health will go for a toss if you keep throwing up after every meal. Your body needs essential nutrients and if it doesn’t get it, it will be starved. Your stomach will be empty and you’ll finally land up with ulcers.
- Going on crazy diets
Dieting is a thing we go on to lose weight. Most diets are best followed only for a month or two. You land up losing on a lot of nutrients if you make a habit of following it all through the year.
Laxatives are supposed to be consumed when you have any gastrointestinal disorders. But some people use them to empty out whatever enters their mouth. This can cause a lot of harm to your body in the long run. What laxatives actually do is that it empties your body of the food even before it gets digested. Check this site for more information.
So please do not resort to these harmful methods to lose weight. Instead follow a healthy diet with the right amount of nutrients that your body needs and don’t forget to exercise and keep active so that you can lose it the natural way.
