If your goal is to lose those extra kilos and in the search for effective formulas you find the famous “recipes”, analyze well before assuming these regimes. May vanity not lead you to take the wrong steps.
As tradition has it, the British Dietetic Association (BDA) has released its annual listing of the most popular diets to avoid for the coming year.
On this occasion, the payroll includes five famously promoted diets: crudivegan, ketogenic, alkaline, pioppi and Katie Price nutritional supplements.
Here is an outline of what each one is about and why the BDA calls them to avoid.
Raw vegan diet
It consists of eating raw and vegan foods. According to the BDA, “a planned vegan diet with vitamin B12 and vitamin D may be healthy, but it’s no guarantee for weight loss. In addition, it states that vegan foods “contain the same calories as non-vegan foods. On raw foods, experts say they are not suitable for children or pregnant women.
It consists of consuming less acidic foods to help balance the pH in the blood and reduce the risk of disease. However, the British entity says this is a “misunderstanding” and explains that,”while encouraging people to eat more vegetables and fruits, as proposed by this diet, it is good, the pH of food does not have an impact on the pH of the blood.
This dietary regime arose in the village of Pioppi, southern Italy, which has been recognized as “the home of the Mediterranean diet”. The version of the diet recommends a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet with intermittent fasting. However, the BDA says it “encourages people to go hungry 24 hours a day, seven days a day.
A very low-carbohydrate diet, high in fat and moderate in protein. The goal is to take the body to a state of “ketosis”: because it does not have the glucose of carbohydrates, instead burns fat to produce energy, This intake would produce an increase in the levels of ketones (organic compound) in the body. But the BDA cautions:”It can be an effective short-term method with careful planning, but initial weight loss is often associated with water and fluid losses.
British nutritionists described the line of supplements launched by the British model Katie Price, which includes breakfast and meal replacement products, as “dangerous”. According to the association,”rapid weight loss can be motivating, but it is not sustainable. Appetite suppressants aren’t healthy either.
