When we diet, we all want to start losing kilos fast pace. And we all know that thinking is neither realistic nor healthy. In fact all the experts recommend that one should not lose more than a kilogram a week.
The reason is very simple, when carrying out a severe restriction of calories the body launches a series of mechanisms to compensate for this energy deficit.
A diet that will shed less than 1,200 calories a day or based on a single nutrient (protein diets, for example). After the diet recover lost kilos with ease and in no time and once again rehydrate the tissues and return to the previous caloric intake.
And we must not forget other serious health risks resulting from a drastic drop in weight as they could be stones in the gall bladder, anemia, high cholesterol or a significant decline in physical performance.
