The amazing miracle rapid weight loss diet that can make you lose 10 pounds in 10 days no matter what you eat! Eat as much as you want, more than you want, double what you want, and still lose weight with no exercise!
Some even clain to drop one pant size in a day, but beware because this might work so well you'll pop out of existence! If these advertising claims are true then rapid weight loss is a miracle reality of the modern world, requiring no effort on the dieter's part.
Hogwash! But even though they mostly aren't true, Americans spend over 40 billion dollars a year on diet pills, weight loss programs and products and trying these rapid weight loss diets that simply don't work. That still doesn't stop people from coming up with all sorts of crazy diets and weight loss products. Celebrity weight loss diets flood the magazine stands and play a crucial role.
Beyonce's "master cleanse" starvation diet can be forgotten? ? It includes taking in nothing but lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and water. Seriously! It also claimed to get rid of years of built up toxins in your system. Who would have thought that maple syrup can destroy toxin. So the next time a poisonous snake bites someone have them eat some pancakes.
Then there are the many claims of magic pills, creams, and diet supplements that guarantee to burn fat without exercise, guaranteed. That wasn't a typo; they mention the word guarantee so often it starts to lose meaning. And when the advertising don't mention exactly what is involved in the "guarantee" it doesn't have any meaning. It's designed to make people think that the product works. It's simply a way of making people think the product works.
Another diet is the VLCD or Very Low Calorie Diet. They work, and studies prove it. The problem is they are often sold to people for home use to drop a few pounds. That's a problem because of their nature. VLCD's are extreme rapid weight loss diets designed for seriously overweight people.
These diets often have people eat half or less of their daily caloric intake. They're designed to be implemented in medically supervised closed settings, where people can't cheat. When used outside of a closed setting, often weight loss clinics called a "fat farm," these rapid weight loss diets can be dangerous to the dieter's health and will generally not work because of binge eating after a period of partial starvation.
The body can have a number of problems during rapid weight loss. Painful Gallstones develop in up to 25% of people who lose large amounts of weight over a few months. Dieters can often become dehydrated because they fail to realize that a large portion of the water people needs to drink come from foods. It's easy to compensate for this by drinking more water. Malnutrition can develop from not eating enough protein over a long period of time. The body can even become unable to process protein, which leads to serious illness and even death.
Rapid weight loss programs and rapid weight loss diets is a great idea. But it's not for most people, and should be administered and supervised by qualified medical professionals.
