Yo-Yo Eating

To many people out there diets can come and go and change at the top of a hate if you either don’t see results quick enough or a big enough of a result. So you switch your diet and find another crash diet to loose weight fast with hopefully minimal troubles. Studies though show that this type of eating can become very harmful for health reasons for people who often switch diets back and forth because of the lack of certain nutrients and the unexpected gain of others your body may not gain all of what it needs to be truly healthy.
An article that I found on Fitness Magazine kind of shows and displays in more detail the effect of yoyo dieting. It has experts and doctors that they have talked it overtime that have relayed just how bad the effects can be if you abuse different forms of crash diets.

Repeated crash dieting increases metabolic hormones, such as insulin, and elevates levels of sex hormones, including estrogen,” says Andrea Pennington, MD, author of The Pennington Plan for Weight Success. “These changes cause you to start putting on weight around your middle, which research has linked to insulin resistance, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.”

This is one of the concerning factors that they bring into the argument against yoyo dieting. I agree that these things can be very bad for your health and when not done properly or overseen properly that crash dieting and yoyo dieting can be very bad for someone. I also believe though that with the right supervision that if you take enough vitamins and make sure to get the very basic amounts of each needed nutrient and keep your calcium, iron, and protein levels up that it is possible to succeed at a crash diet.
