Why crash dieting never works

Researchers from the University of Carolina have discovered something new about crash diets: the symptoms you experience during such a diet are similar to drug withdrawal. They not only throw off your immune system, they also result in nausea, headaches, and other nasty symptoms. A healthy diet, regular exercise, and Phentermine 37.5mg are the much healthier alternatives.

Dopamine Reduction

Making an abrupt switch to a crash diet reduces the amount of dopamine in your brain, a neurotransmitter associated with mood. This drop is believed to be due to stress.

“Our findings suggest that stress caused by food restriction, commonly observed with crash dieting, can prime the dopamine system in a way that promotes over-indulgence of palatable or ‘comfort’ foods, when the opportunity arises,” says Steve Fordahl, PhD of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

This finding also explains why people usually regain weight after trying fad diets, such as the “cookie diet.”

Survival Mode

Another reason crash dieting does not work is because starving the body puts it into survival mode, meaning it will hold onto any fat reserves it has. So not only do you feel the awful physical effects of crash dieting, you will probably not see the results you want.

Healthy Weight Loss

Healthy weight loss is never severe, such as losing 15 or more pounds in a week (most is water weight, anyway). Losing one to three pounds a week is the much healthier way to shed weight and keep it off. Lean protein sources, plenty of fruits and veggies, and whole grains are great places to start when you want to lose weight, especially if you also rid your pantry of processed and sugary snacks. Drink plenty of water to help flush fat cells from the body, and remember to take Phentermine as recommended and exercise consistently. Low-impact exercises such as biking, walking, and swimming offer both calorie-burning and muscle-toning benefits.
