Dabur Honey- Goodness of Wholesome Diets

It is always better to stick to the tried and tested path. I have seen many, so called crash diets fall by the wayside. We are created to eat a wholesome, healthy diet by the creator of the universe. So any changes to the original plan will be short lived with little success.

Dangers of crash diets

These quick fix diets promise to remove your unwanted body fat without any exercise. While this may seem effective in the near future. You are inviting a whole lot of health problems in the long run.

Some of the most popular crash diets include lemonade diet, cabbage soup diet, chicken soup diet, Hollywood diet and the idiot proof diet. There are even some more diets.

If the body is starved of the vital nutrients it may result in depression, moodiness, irritability and intense cravings. It can lead to bulimia and anorexia. These crash diets in the long run may cause osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency, liver or kidney failure, brain damage, stroke and heart attack.

In order to achieve the near impossible perfect body frame, people go on fasts, yo-yo diets, detox programs and cleanses, without realizing their health hazards. Researchers say that rapid weight loss slows down your metabolism and can lead to future weight gain.

Health professionals say that repeated crash dieting can lead to heart attacks. Yo-yo dieting can cause micro tears in the blood vessels due to shrinking and growing and this may lead to atherosclerosis and other heart diseases, say the top brains in the health world.

People I hope I have scared you to death, because this is my natural gift. That’s why God destined me to be a health writer. When I was a kid, I read about irregular heartbeats and scared my father so much, that he took some tests worth Rs. 20,000, in those days it was big money. The doctor after hearing that I scared my father and seeing everything was normal, advised my father never to make me study medicine, because I would scare people to death. But do you know something called destiny?

 Wholesome diets

When you eat a healthy diet, that is when you include whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, greens, lean meat, eggs and milk in your diet. You will be more productive, happier, less stressed, you can maintain ideal weight, you will even eat less, because healthy foods have satiety value, they can increase feelings of fullness. The other benefits include long life span and less hospital visits.

When you couple healthy food with exercise you enjoy healthy way of losing weight. Gradual weight loss is healthy and it is advised by health professionals all over the world. I can give you an example from my own life, after my second delivery I tipped the large numbers on the weight scale. But a brisk walk for thirty minutes daily and a healthy diet has reduced my weight and helped me regain my self-confidence.
