4 of the Worst Ways to Lose Weight

There are plenty of ways to shed pounds out there, many of which are not healthy or sustainable. If you recently started taking Phentermine 37.5mg for fast weight loss, pairing it with a healthy exercise and diet routine is essential for success! Counting on the miracle diet pill to do everything is not realistic, nor is following any of these “tips.”

Trying Fad Diets

Fad diets are called as such for a reason. 

“Fad diets often eliminate entire food groups, leading to imbalanced nutrition,” says Amy Goodson, MS, RD, CSSD, LD, a registered dietitian and certified specialist in sports dietetics. “When you remove a whole food group, you often remove the main nutrient group that food provides. They may provide short-term results but lack long-term sustainability. Fad diets can also make it difficult to eat with family and friends.”

Doing Cleanses

So-called cleanses rarely have lasting effects on weight loss. 

“Detox and cleanse diets are often based on the idea that you need to ‘cleanse’ your body of toxins,” notes Sam Schoeffler, CPT. “However, there is no scientific evidence to support this claim. Instead, focus on eating a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water and adequate electrolytes.”

Skipping Meals

Eliminating whole meals does nothing for quick weight loss or your overall health! It just makes you hungrier as the day goes on.

“Instead, eat regular meals and snacks throughout the day,” recommends Schoeffler. “This will help you keep your energy levels up and prevent you from getting too hungry.”

Eating Too Many “Diet” Foods

Sticking to “diet” or low-carb foods is not a good idea.

“Low-carb and diet foods may seem like a good choice, but many times they don’t keep people satisfied, leaving them looking for other foods to feel full,” Goodson says. “Not to mention, just because it’s low-carb doesn’t mean it’s good for you. Many of them replace carbohydrates with saturated fats and have decreased fiber.”
