What exactly is dieting?
The majority of us have gone through a phase of dieting often which is necessary or effective. As concerned with the new generation, recent data shows that many teenagers are preoccupied with their weight and might indulge in overeating or under eating. This leads to eating disorders making them overweight or underweight. Although a large number of people claim to be on a diet the problem of obesity is still on the high rise. This is because the diet does not lead to weight loss. The majority of people regain the lost weight over a period of time. The vicious cycle of weight gain and weight loss is also known as “weight recycling” is associated with his risk of morbidity which can create many complications.
Causes of “Hunger Pangs”
Dieting is seen mostly in people who restrict themselves in indulging in junk and fatty food. It is mostly seen in people who want to become lean and thin. They are more focused on what they consume rather than exercise. In this way, due to lack of exercise, weight loss may occur due to loss of muscle mass or fluid loss. Losing muscle reduces the body’s metabolic rate and makes weight maintenance very difficult. This kind of weight loss may lead to binge eating and may lead to weight gain. Unusual cravings may lead to more difficulty in weight loss. These are also called “hunger pangs”
