★Health and beauty require a balanced diet. Be careful of diets that are too restrictive and omit essential nutrients. 

Protein-rich diets have become very popular in the U.S. For example, people eat hamburgers and bacon for breakfast, with not a carbohydrate in sight! So many people are getting caught up in the protein diet craze. Do super-quick weight loss programs that claim that you can still gorge on meat and cheese seems too good to be true? Remember the old saying that “if something is too good to be true, it probably is.” Medical professionals and nutritionists point out that these diets are a fallacy.

The initial weight loss that you feel when you strictly limit carbohydrate intake is actually only due to water loss. You may think you’re a few pounds lighter, but you haven’t really lost any weight.

Protein, pound-for-pound, has the same number of calories as carbohydrates. Fat has even more. Therefore, eating fatty meats instead of low-fat, balanced diet may derail your weight loss plans altogether.

Excessive consumption of protein over a long period of time can also leave you with several unsavory side effects, such as:

— Elevated “bad” cholesterol levels (remember all that bacon and cheese)
— Increased blood pressure (fruits, veggies and whole grains help lower it)
— Calcium loss, resulting in bone thinning (excess protein strips calcium from the body)

The “not hungry” feeling experienced when you limit carbohydrates is actually the body’s natural starvation response. You may not “feel” so, but your body is hungry. Quitting carbohydrates can leave you feeling tired, cranky and malnourished.

Since many of the latest fad diets tend to be very restrictive, they don’t result in long-term behavior modification. Most people who lose weight in the short term with these programs, inevitably put it back on.

Eating a balanced diet of proteins, unprocessed carbohydrates—and lots of fruits and veggies—is a good place to start, but the key to fulfilling any long-term weight loss goal is a regular exercise regimen.
