Why crash dieting DOES work:
While experts, nutritionists and physicians would advise against them, many people look to crash diets to lose a significant amount of weight in a short period of time. Some do it because they don't have the patience to take up a regular diet and exercise regimen, and they want to see instant results. Others do it because they don't have a large enough time frame to diet and exercise regularly.
For instance, someone might need to fit into a particular piece of clothing, like a tuxedo or dress, for an upcoming wedding or formal event. Whatever the reason may be, people are aware of the existence of crash diets that can lead to rapid weight loss, but aren't sure if they actually work. Here is a review of four different crash diets that not only work, but also work fast.
Clinical experience shows that somebody with a serious commitment to weight loss can lose up to 20 pounds - and two to three dress sizes - in two months. That's a lot of weight, and an enormous change in appearance for most of us.
Best of all, if a crash diet is done right (and you make permanent changes to how you eat) it can yield results that will stand the test of time just as well as those slow and careful, long-term diets that emphasise depressingly incremental drops in weight.
Conventional wisdom says that rapid weight loss leads to rapid weight regain, but a new generation of science is showing that slow isn't necessarily better.
Atkins. I've tried a lot of diets, and I've seen a lot of people on diets. If you do the 70s version of the Atkins diet - meaning NO CARBS for 4 weeks straight, you will not die. People don't like this diet because they are all brainwashed by the media to think that eating foods that are high in fat and protein, and eating a lot meat is bad for you. Well, they don't tell you how many people lose weight very rapidly, and then they DISCONTINUE the diet once they reach their goal. Its not a lifestyle change. If you follow his steps, without fail, by the 4th or 5th day, you will lose about 1 lb. per day. Give it a whirl. Your appetite will be depressed as well. But you'll crave chips & salsa like crazy (I did!).
