Which weight-loss diets should you be wary of?
Unfortunately many fast-track weight-loss diets are dangerous and could be damaging to your body. Extreme restriction of nutrients can bring about internal stress to the body which can make it prone to dramatic fluctuations in weight and other side effects. For example, diets like The Dukan can cause bad breath, dry mouth and constipation. Similarly, the Atkins can cause bad breath but also tiredness, weakness, dizziness, insomnia and nausea. This is a consequence of the body entering a state called ketosis which denies the body from essential nutrients that help to convert macronutrients (foods) such as carbohydrates into energy.
