diet types

There is a time when we already performed a diet and exercise, the weight is still not moving down. The scales are also even shifted to the left. We begin to feel frustrated. Finally, we also “justify” all the way cutting the unwanted weight in the body through diet in ways that were not beneficial for our health.


What Kind of Diets Are They?

Detox Diet

Detox diet is a diet by consuming only liquid (usually juice or beverages) with no or only little eating solid foods. Will your weight be declining?

Of course, however, this diet is not safe and is not beneficial for health since we will lose various essential nutrients for the body.

When we return to the original diet and eating solid foods, our weight will also be increased. Moreover, the effect is we become furthermore lethargic, low energy, difficulty focusing and difficult to move.

HCG Diet

This type of diet has been discovered since 50 years ago. Although there are numerous people who successfully lose their weight in a jiffy with the HCG diet, however, there are still a few people who still have a wrong perception regarding this diet.

Through this type of diet, we expect to have a healthy lifestyle after we finished this diet. There are countless success stories of several people who lost weight by 25 pounds in a month.

However, not a few people whose weight eventually climbed back more than ever before. To consider when anyone wants to experiment with this diet, is to carry out a research and find HCG drops diet information, whether you are in the US, UK, or Australia.

If not, afterwards, we will end up with no results. One essential note is to maintain your healthy lifestyle following completion of the HCG diet so that your weight remains appropriate.

Diets High in Protein

High-protein diet is a diet by eating foods high in protein, such as meat, eggs, and cheese. At a glance, a person may seem healthy with a decent dietary protein intake.

When we do not eat carbs, we will lose weight faster since we lose water. Consequently, without extra carbohydrates, the body will burn fat faster and become energy. It is also called ketosis.

Ketosis can cause headache, restlessness, nausea, kidney disorders and palpitations.

The American Heart Association itself has not recommended a diet high in protein. Eating fatty meats and dairy products can increase your cholesterol levels and risk of heart attack.

Protein is useful for the body. However, select the source of protein with low calorie content such as chicken or fish.

Low Calorie Diet

It is not advisable to perform a calorie diet with relatively low (less than 1000 calories per day). When we perform this diet, your weight is moving straight down. However, your metabolism will also move down due to intake of food we consume is also too low. As a result, after the diet is completed, the body will burn calories more slowly than usual. As a result, the weight will be increased again.


Laxatives intended just for people having problems with constipation. Laxatives are not an alternative for weight loss. If a person is using laxatives constantly to lose weight, then he or she will be at risk of dehydration and “dependence” on laxatives. In addition, the side effects of laxatives constantly are a disorder of the gastrointestinal tract, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps.
