The most dangerous weight loss techniques
In an effort to lose weight, many women are ready to make any sacrifices. Modern dietetics negatively looks at the ways of extreme weight loss and warns against possible risks associated with the use of a number of questionable methods.
However, in the pursuit of beauty, a very large number of people are consciously ready to take the path of least resistance, choosing, albeit dangerous, but clearly effective ways of getting rid of hateful kilograms. Women are not afraid of skin problems, or hypovitaminosis, or even the risk of developing eating disorders.
Complete rejection of food
Everyone knows the beneficial effect of therapeutic fasting. In order for fasting to be beneficial, it is necessary to conduct a fasting course strictly under the supervision of a specialist doctor. But the spontaneous “post”, on the contrary, can significantly slow down the metabolic processes and make an imbalance in the work of all vital systems.
Indeed, the temporary rejection of food leads to rapid weight loss.Due to the fact that the body does not receive energy from food, it begins to draw "fuel" to support life from its own resources. First of all, glycogen stores are consumed, but after a week or two, the lack of dietary protein is compensated by protein from the blood and muscle tissue.
If the first week of food abstinence, you will feel lightness in the body and a surge of cheerfulness, then after 7-10 days there may be a breakdown due to a decrease in muscle activity. Gradually, blood pressure decreases, body temperature and blood sugar levels drop. The digestive system begins to work in "emergency" mode.
A week later, there may be a violation of the cycle, dehydration of all tissues. The skin suffers from a lack of fat and protein. It begins to peel off strongly, acquires an unhealthy gray-yellow shade. Nails and hair become brittle, lose their natural shine and elasticity.
Cleansing the bowel with an enema is one of the most dubious ways to lose weight. In order to dispel the myth about the effectiveness of this method in the fight against obesity once and for all, it is enough to explain the principle of the action of hydrocolonotherapy. Enemas have a purely therapeutic effect and should be carried out only with a doctor's prescription.
They are used in cases where there is a need to flush out of the intestine fecal masses. But about any decrease in body fat in this case is not a question. In a healthy person, enemas can cause a number of side effects. If the intestines are washed too often, the natural microflora will be flushed out along with the stool, and this is fraught with chronic dysbiosis.
In addition, the body simply disaccustomed to independently get rid of waste products. You do not want to go to the toilet throughout life only thanks to a rubber bag?
Laxatives have a similar effect. But for some reason, many who want to lose weight continue to persistently use this method. As well as enemas, a laxative is aimed at normalizing stools in people suffering from constipation. But the use of drugs for inappropriate purposes is fraught with hypovitaminosis, weakening of intestinal motility and dehydration.
Already so much has been said and written about the dangers of the so-called "miracle pills" for weight loss! But even so, their popularity among losing weight remains at a high level.
Neither fear to earn arrhythmia, nor metabolic disorder, nor insomnia and migraine can stop proponents of extreme weight loss.
After a series of complaints about the development of depressive states, deterioration of health and even cases of suicide, some drugs were officially banned. The effectiveness of diet pills is also in doubt. After taking them, the weight returns as quickly and even with interest.
This method is used to reduce weight for a long time. It was rumored that the great Maria Callas had managed to lose more than thirty kilograms by planting a tapeworm.
Parasites do contribute to weight loss, but at the same time their metabolic products lead to the strongest intoxication of the human body and reduce sodium reserves. There is a marked decrease in immunity. The foci of inflammation caused by worms cause blistering and flatulence.
The impressive size of parasites allow them to close the intestinal ducts, and this is a direct path to constipation. Over time, the localization of worms expands: they settle in the muscles, causing severe pain, which is often attributed to arthritis.Given all the above facts, to say that the worms - assistants in losing weight, still not worth it.
Natural acids that apple cider vinegar is rich in are really beneficial for the body. But only under the condition of competent application. To improve metabolism and reduce appetite, nutritionists recommend drinking acetic acid solutions in courses of 2-3 weeks.
Prepare the solution easier: in one glass of warm water, dilute 1 tbsp. l apple cider vinegar. It should be drunk in the morning on an empty stomach. After ingestion, rinse the mouth well with clean water so that the remaining fruit acid does not corrode the tooth enamel.
It would be wrong to say that apple cider vinegar can cope with the problem of excess weight on its own, but as an aid in attaining slenderness of the body, it will fit perfectly. It is suitable as a more useful replacement for the usual table.
Surgical removal of adipose tissue
This is really the most extreme weight loss method! The effect after the liposuction procedure is really visible immediately. But the risks that are associated with surgical intervention do not justify even the most passionate desire to lose weight.
The rehabilitation period is quite long and unpleasant, so a beautiful reflection in the mirror can be seen not very soon.
In addition, if after liposuction not to adhere to proper nutrition and not to play sports, the weight will begin to return.
The effect of hot steam has a beneficial effect on the body's metabolic processes, helps to eliminate toxins and cleanse the skin.
But to bath procedures really helped to lose weight, it is necessary to accompany their massage sessions.
Unnatural disposal of food eaten by vomiting is one of the most dangerous methods of losing weight. This habit leads to a deficiency of potassium and hypovitaminosis, inflammation of the esophagus, dehydration.
If you let everything take its course, the occurrence of food disorders (anorexia, exhaustion, bulimia) is possible.
