Crash dieting, or severe calorie restriction, might be tempting to reduce belly fat rapidly. It's risky and ineffective over time. These are some potential side effects of crash dieting to reduce abdominal fat
First, there's the risk of nutritional deficiencies and other health issues brought on by the elimination of whole food categories during a crash diet.
Crash diets may cause metabolic slowdown, which makes future weight loss more challenging.
Loss of muscle mass is a side effect of rapid weight reduction that might compromise one's fitness and health.
Low energy levels
It is difficult to exercise and do everyday duties when one's energy levels are low, which may occur with extreme calorie restriction.
Increased risk of binge eating
Risk of binge eating and an unhealthy connection with food increases when you restrict your food intake.
Unhealthy weight loss
Loss of water weight or muscle mass rather than fat is a common side effect of crash diets, making the weight loss that results unhealthy.
Healthy belly fat loss requires a balanced diet and frequent exercise. Losing 1-2 pounds each week is healthful and maintainable. Make tiny, sustainable adjustments over time to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
