The cult of the body and being thin is the order of the day and now that there are only a few months left before the arrival of summer, showing off a good figure becomes a real obsession on the part of many women. That is why the so-called detox or detoxification diets are in the limelight and are currently the most followed. However, most experts strongly discourage them due to, among other things, their psychological dangers.

The psychological dangers of detox diets

  • Each detox diet is different but in general they promise to eliminate toxins from the body and thus end the excess fat that every woman hates to have. To work this miracle, most of these diets choose to restrict the intake of calories from the daily diet, especially in terms of liquids. Nutrition experts point out that this caloric restriction, apart from the physical damage, also has psychological dangers. Secondary damage may include headaches, fatigue, irritability, or other discomfort.
  • The detox diet, apart from adding to the list of famous diets with a rebound effect, in which the lost weight is recovered with a return to normality, can also cause other negative effects on the body such as fatigue, apathy, nausea or pain upside down This is mainly due to the lack of protein foods, since these diets seek the rapid loss of accumulated toxins by restricting a multitude of foods as well as their texture.
  • To avoid all these problems, not only physical but also psychological, you must bear in mind that this diet will eventually bring you serious problems. Therefore, it is very important that you follow a healthy and balanced diet that helps you achieve your goals set beforehand. If, despite everything, you decide to start with the detox diet, it is best to let yourself be advised by a person specialized in the matter and who will mark the steps to follow.
