The question is whether following these fast weight loss programmes are healthy and whether you will lose all of the weight that you want. It is important to check the pros and cons of each type of diet.


You can lose weight quickly. Most of these are seven to ten day diets which are quick and easy to follow.
No starving You can eat as much as you want, as long as it is on the list of foods for the diet. There is no reason to starve yourself or feel down because you are getting hungry late at night. Loss of ten pounds You can lose around ten pounds within a week. This is one whole dress size! The possibility to freeze the food You do not need to worry about what you will have for dinner. Everything is laid out for you. You will also be able to cook everything and freeze it, which makes a busy schedule easy to stick with. Not expensive You do not need to spend a lot of special meals or diet plans. The soup diets are something you can download online and the meals are affordable. Consumption of the required amount of vegetables You will be eating vegetables the whole time, so you will definitely be getting your five a day.


It can be difficult to keep the weight loss that you gain from these quick diets. You do not change the way you eat over the long-term. It is just something to help with short-term goals. The weight you lose is mainly water and muscle mass and not fat. Boring It can get boring because you will be eating the same food for the whole week. The good news is that you only need to do it for a week. You will need a lot of willpower to get through this week though because other foods will be tempting. Lack some nutrients You will not be getting all of the nutrients that you need. Vegetables do not offer everything that your body needs. A strict diet You will be stuck on a strict diet. You will not be able to eat sweets, crisps or chocolate. During most
long-term diet plans bear in mind that you will want sweets or to go out for a meal. Gastric problems It can cause gastric problems such as stomach cramps, gas and irregular bowel movements.
