Drawbacks Of A One-Week Diet

Introduction And Background

With fast food on every corner and chefs coming up with delicious deserts every hour, it should not come as a surprise to everyone that with the expansion of the food business the people are expanding too. Gaining weight has become the easiest thing in the world while losing it has become the hardest. Going on a diet is not only a torture for some, it is impossible for others. There are just too many temptations and big appetites to really think of quitting all the delicious foods and turning to the healthy non-fattening ones. To make it bearable, obese people start dieting for a short time and then resume to their normal routines. This is not a good idea at all.

Drawbacks Of A One-Week Diet
Dieting for only a single week will do no one any good. Whether the plan has been thought of well and no harm will come nutritionally, the time period will do all the harm in the world. A one-week diet is a bad idea because it has various drawbacks and very few advantages. Read on further to decide for yourself:

  • Doing a one-week will not only cause you to lose little weight while on the diet, it will cause you to gain more afterwards! This is due to the psychological effect that you have starved yourself for seven days and can now eat as much as you like. It is dangerous to do that and will only end up in weight gain, not weight loss. Doing the one-week type typically is good for weight maintenance at most, not weight loss.
  • Anything you will eat immediately after the one-week diet will probably store as fat in the body. This is how the body works. It will think of starvation mode as your goal and ultimately save the food for future use. Not getting into the process and science of it all, it is not good to eat little and then eat a lot all of a sudden. It will have adverse effects on the body.
  • A One-week diet, no matter what the plan, will only make you irritable. Dieting for only one week is not good enough and most diets do make you lose a little weight but there is no way you get to maintain that weight loss afterwards. It only becomes more difficult afterwards, not easier.
  • Dieting for such a short period of time also lowers your metabolic rate a little. Your body has to get accustomed to your eating habits. If you eat little for a week and then resume to eat at a normal pace after the week and then eat little again for seven more days, the body is bound to get confused. It will make the weight loss even harder afterwards.
  • When one diets for a week only, they don’t generally like it. It becomes too hard for them afterwards and they don’t generally resume that diet as they’ve had a taste of it and their instructions tell them to go at it for a week only. A dieting span has to be longer so that one can get used to it.
  • One-week diets generally consist of little food and often send the body into starvation mode which is not at all healthy. A diet should be spread over a longer period of time so that the body can lose weight gracefully and in a healthier manner.

But A Benefit…Or Not?
Even though there are various drawbacks to the One-week diets, there is one singular benefit that seems to appear. The appetite is somewhat lessened after the one week of dieting. Nonetheless, it can be argued that even that is a drawback. The appetite is lessened but then it increases too at the slightest loss of control on what you are eating. Even if you eat a little more, it is hard to stop at a certain limit and the stomach has the tendency to expand even more than before!

Do It Or Don’t Do It?
It is better not to do one-week diets and rather go on diet schedules or full planning. You can do the one-week diet if you want but it is better not to.

One-week diets are not that trendy. If one needs to really do it, it should only be to maintain weight. Losing weight through one-week diet is hard and bad for the body and if one loses weight they only gain it quickly afterwards which is not a good thing at all. It will become even harder to lose that weight then. Thus, there is good and bad in everything. It is up to your living lifestyle and amount of weight loss that can really decide for you.
