If You're Trying to Lose Weight, Don't Do These!

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Dec 14, 2011
It's easy to get obsessive when you're in weight-loss mode. As tempting as it is, don't! Here are a few things to definitely avoid, so you can relax and take your weight loss regime at a reasonable--and healthy--pace.

Starving yourself (or skipping meals)
You may think this is a faster way to weight loss, but it actually has the opposite effect in the long run. Not eating, skipping meals and diets far too low in calories wind up decreasing your metabolism and increasing your percentage of body fat.

Scammy weight loss pills
These products found over the counter at drug stores and online promising rapid weight loss are not only unsafe and unregulated by the FDA, they don't even work. They can also cause problems. Diet pills are often loaded with caffeine and diuretics, which can dehydrate you and throw your electrolytes off balance.


Extreme exercise
Going to the extreme when exercising to lose weight can do you more harm than good. It can also lead to injuries, dehydration, electrolyte imbalance and turning physical exercise into a punishment for your eating habits. Instead, get a moderate amount of exercise for weight loss--at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week. In time, moderate exercise coupled with a healthy diet will get you on track to lose weight--and keep it off--as long as you keep it up.

You don't need to go to extreme measures to lose weight. Work one-on-one with Dr. Aron to change your lifestyle for the better, and lose weight safely. Call today!
