There are a lot of ways to lose unnecessary weight. You can use different diets, more or less drastic, but we will always lose at least some weight if we follow the rules.
Dieticians recommend different diets, depending on the condition of our body. This is why it’s worth contacting a specialist before making a decision about losing weight. A diet that’s not well thought about can lead to some serious internal organ damage.
The most exposed are kidneys, liver and pancreas. It’s also worth noting, that while on a diet, it’s important that our body gets enough vitamins, microelements and trace elements. Lack of important ingredients in our meals can greatly weaken our body.
One of the fastest, but also harmful diets is a Norwegian diet. It’s a bit similar to Copenhagen diet. This drastic diet dehydrates the body and reduces muscle mass. It’s borderline starvation, and only a person that likes the feeling of constant hunger can go through with it. Norwegian diet lasts fourteen days, and can only be repeated once every two years. As it is with every diet, the rules, which are monotone, have to be followed strictly, and it also includes not eating dinner.
The diet is based on eggs, grapefruits, cooked, grilled or roasted without fat, meat, lean fish, and salads have to be eaten without any oil or dressing. Bread, even in small amounts, is rarely allowed. Milk is not allowed at all, neither are any preserves that contain it, and salt should be avoided. It’s allowed to drink weak coffee, herbal tea and water. Everything without sugar. Sweets of any kind are completely forbidden, so are fruits, apart from grapefruits. Eating a high amount of grapefruits help burn fat. The only vegetables allowed are tomatoes, spinach, carrots, celery, cucumbers, lettuce and cabbage. Actually most vegetables, apart from potatoes, are allowed. It’s a very monotone diet.
For example, breakfast includes eggs and grapefruits, lunch contains meat or eggs and grapefruits or vegetables. During this diet, it’s recommended to consume beverages that do not contain sugar, and up to three litres a day. Studies show, that the Norwegian diet significantly slows the metabolism. It was found, that a person using this diet before the age of twenty, end up with a metabolism of a seventy year old.
So we see how drastic this diet is, and how it harms the body. Low calorie meals and constant feeling of hunger can also cause irritability and depression. It doesn’t guarantee that there will be no yoyo effect after going back to the normal eating habits. As with every diet, you should introduce different products slowly, and not stuff yourself with sweets.
