Crash diets are unlikely to result in long-term weight loss. In fact, they can sometimes lead to longer-term weight gain.
The main problem is that this type of diet is too hard to maintain. You may also be missing out on essential nutrients as crash diets can be limited in the variety of food consumed. Your body will be low on energy, and may cause you to crave high-fat and high-sugar foods. This can lead to eating those foods and more calories than you need, causing weight gain.
I love to talk about food, look at food and eat food and no diet on earth will take away this fact!
So what to do?
Indulge of course! But within reason. So say like two times a month plan your favourite meal or once a week it’s really up to you and how controlled you want to be. Just be aware the more frequent your cheat meals the less consistent your weight control progress will be.
