How A Yoyo Diet (Losing Weight Fast) Can Cause Serious Facial & Body Skin Problems
More and more authoritative sources, including MSNBC’S Today show, Web MD, Medicine Net, Livestrong, and general health blogs online, are all saying one thing: losing weight fast, or choosing the route of the yo-yo diet, is not healthy. And that’s just not a general statement. Facts point to a dangerous cycle where women (and men) binge on weekends and starve themselves daily, resulting in organ, heart and skin damage to severe degrees.
As a skin expert, I can tell you that a yo-yo diet is one of the worst diets you could go on. Let’s look at the underlying problems and then the surface problem results in your skin. First, yo-yo dieting is considered an ugly cycle that is linked to health problems including hypertension, gall bladder disease, and high cholesterol. Today, heart disease is the number 1 silent killer of women, and if you are on a cycle of yo-yo dieting for five different times, your heart disease risk is greatly increased. Besides this, yo-yo dieting can damage your bone density, lead to kidney and liver failure, and cause essential vitamin and mineral body deficiencies.
The yo-yo diet, or losing weight fast, contributes not only to facial skin sagging, but the skin on your body as well. This is because this fast diet causes the skin to loosen while you’re losing weight only to be stretched again when you gain that weight back. The result is a sagging, drooping appearance in your skin.
You still want to lose weight, and you don’t want to take a year doing it, right? I highly suggest the healthy alternative route of an alkaline diet combined with my Glowing Skin Diet. This will not only improve your overall health and help you shed those pounds, but you’ll also be able to tighten skin on your face and body as well. No more sagging skin. You’ll look, feel and appear brighter, slimmer, healthier and prettier!
