Dangers in Losing Body Fat

A lot of people nowadays want to look good in order to feel good, and this can be a growing obsession with people who are constantly inundated with images from the mass media. This growing obsession can likewise become dangerous: people can be addicted to weight loss, and can start doing things that are as drastic as they are deadly.

Indeed, losing body fat is a good way to get your body in shape, but you need methods that are safe.

One dangerous method is through purging, where you eat various foods that will make you defecate faster. The main danger associated with this is dehydration: by purging your body excessively, you can rid it of water much faster, and this can damage your liver and kidneys.

Excessive purging can prevent your body of the ability to absorb nutrients. You may be pushing nutrients out of your body faster than your intestinal bacteria can help you out with producing those that you need, and you could end up malnourished.

Another dangerous weight loss method is dieting. This, of course, depends on the diet that you use. The most common diets will often take out carbohydrates from your regular meals and replace them with high protein foods. This is in the hope that you will start getting more energy from other dietary sources, such as fats and proteins.

However, this is highly dangerous, as excessive proteins can damage your kidneys and liver, and can even make you predisposed to gout. This is a disease where uric acid crystals accumulate in your joints and cause pain. This is only one disease that can occur with this kind of diet, and with many more kinds of diets, you can probably expect even more varied dangers.

Another way that you can place yourself in danger is through using medications. This can include steroids, which will force your body to use up excess energy, and then convert your mass into muscle mass. Steroids can be dangerous as they tax on your liver, kidneys, and heart. They can increase your blood pressure and make you more prone to heart disease.

Another kind of medication is herbal medicine that promises to make you lose weight. These medications may have undocumented side effects that can spell danger for your body, despite the fact that you are indeed losing weight. Most medications are not approved by government agencies, so always consult with your doctor about taking them before you do anything drastic.

If you are going to use supplements for weight loss then stick to the main stream, multi-national, companies who offer products that are tried and proven over time and tested and registed in a range of international countries.
