Is a crash diet effective in weight loss?

Crash diets are very restrictive, low in calories and don’t provide your body with all the necessary nutrients. Crash diets when followed on the short term will help you lose weight quickly but will cause some physical discomfort such as excess fatigue and sometimes dizziness. Furthermore, it’s important to note that whenever you lose weight via a crash diet, most of the weight lost is from water and muscle mass and when you return to your regular diet, the weight lost will be regained easily and replaced by fats, thus making it harder for you to lose weight in the future.

We recommend you avoid unsupervised crash dieting and opt for healthy balanced eating instead along with regular exercise, which together can help you lose weight steadily and achieve your target fitness levels and ideal shape.
