While there are a lot of fad diets available nowadays, the question is whether dieting is beneficial or not? Most diets may look effective at a quick glance but a lot of studies have revealed that it may not be helpful in the long run.

Although going on a diet may help you shed off those few pounds quickly but it’s maintaining the weight that becomes a challenge. Most people (myself included) gain more weight after three to six months of going back to their old routine of feasting.

Additionally, experts say that excessive dieting can cause a lot of health problems such as dizziness, diabetes, stroke and weak immune system.

Some diets also include supplements to help people lose weight a lot faster. There are a lot of safe diet pills offered in the market, they can help but the safest way to lose weight is still proper diet and regular exercise. Nothing can beat that!
