Weight Is Not The Only Thing Dieters Needs To Be Concerned With

Most people go on a diet to lose weight and those diets are not always the best thing for your body in the long run. Eating a well balanced diet with exercise several times, a week is the only diet that can guarantee weight loss without harming your body.

Harmful Effects of Dieting

Aside from the possibility of developing an eating disorder caused by an obsession to lose weight there are other health consequences when an individual does not diet properly.

Vitamin D is one of the main concerns with incorrect dieting a lack of vitamin D can cause your hair to fall out, weak bones that can break easily and the development of osteoporosis can start at an early age causing problems that are more serious in adulthood and in the elderly years, and the development of gallstones is another problem.

How to Diet Properly

First, never call your new eating plan a diet it is a lifestyle change that will allow your mind to accept your new foods, eating routine and exercise more easily and readily. Eat small meals that provide foods from all the food groups so that at the end of the day you have consumed what your body needs to stay healthy. Exercise is vital to weight loss a 30-minute brisk walk five days a week is a good starting point. In addition, a physical from your doctor is a great idea before you begin any lifestyle changes.
