Today we are all looking for quick solutions for areas of out life, and losing weight is no exception.
One option to losing weight is to find an online diet plan.
But with any diet plan, whether it is online or off line you need to check out it's credibility. After all anyone could just put up a diet plan and sell it to the masses.
Well, it sounds like this is the case, when a recent diet plan appeared online. The diet plan was called "The British Heart Foundation Diet".
In the first instance the diet did not actually come from the British Heart Foundation, a reputable charity based in the UK.
Here is what was said about the diet….
The diet is a three-day very low calorie plan which claims to help people shed 10lb. But the BHF condemned it as a "faddy crash diet" which could be detrimental in the long-run.
Victoria Taylor, senior heart health dietician at the BHF, said: "Apart from being wholly unappetising with the likes of two frankfurters with a cup of cabbage and half a cup of carrots for a meal, this diet is so restrictive in terms of the range and quantity of food that it lacks a number of nutrients we need to stay healthy.
"The lack of fibre means followers could develop constipation while long-term use could also leave you deficient in calcium and iron, which can result in fragile bones and teeth and feeling constantly tired and lethargic if left unchecked.
"Most people are likely to lose largely water and some muscle, rather than the fat they really want to shed on this kind of crash diet. Over time, the muscle loss can be bad news as it means that the rate your body burns calories, whether active or resting, can actually slow down – the last thing dieters want.
"Being obese is linked to raised blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, both major risk factors for heart disease. So it's important people find effective ways of managing their weight – but this so-called quick fix is not one of them."
So be warned make sure that you check into validity of any diet and find out all the fact.
One diet that I know that is up-front and you can find out all the facts about is the Eating For Energy diet, the details of which can be found by Clicking Here.bhf, british heart foundation, british heart foundation diet, calorie plan, crash diet, diet plan, dieters, dietician, fragile bones, heart health, losing weight, muscle loss, quick solutions, risk factors for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, victoria taylor
