People always look for the fastest ways to lose weight, trying the weirdest diets. You may have heard of Water Diet which depends only on drinking water. Does it work? Let us find out.
What is the water diet?
If you want to try it, you have to forget about food for many days and only drink water. As soon as you start losing weight you can eat some fruits and vegetables, apples are the favorable ones. This way is a fast and reliable way to lose weight, but still it has a lot of disadvantages.
What are the disadvantages?
Drinking water only without food for many days probably won’t harm healthy people. But it is not the right way to lose weight though, because after you finish this diet you will go back to your normal eating habits and regain the weight you had lost by getting rid of water not fat.
So after this diet you have to reduce the food amount you consume as much as you can since your metabolism will go down. By depending only on water you will miss the essential nutrients and your muscle mass will go down, too. If you don’t get enough water during this diet you might face dehydration which causes dizziness, fainting, headaches, constipation and other health issues.
What about Cold Water Diet?
You can eat what you want during this diet, but you must drink cold water, because the colder the water -you drink- is, the greater the return will be for the body burns calories to adjust its temperature after drinking cold water. Moreover, drinking water in big amounts will make you feel full so you won’t eat much. Don’t forget that water detoxifies your body.
