The One Thing You Should Never Do When Dieting

Obviously, there’s more than one thing you should avoid when dieting. Trendy cleanses and infomercial weight loss pills are a definite no-no. Binging and purging also get a serious thumbs-down. Dieting is easy — but dieting in a way that’s actually healthy…? Not so much.

Cutting calories is typically part of the dieting process, yes. But it all comes down to which calories you cut and how many you’re cutting. The hard and fast rule is this: don’t eat fewer than 1200 calories per day. If you dramatically decrease your calorie count, you will probably lose weight, but losing weight in this way puts you at a greater risk to gain it back, and when you do, you’ll lose muscle and gain fat. Ughh, we really don’t want that! Plus, dieting in this way can lower your metabolism and increase your risk for type 2 Diabetes. HARD PASS. So while you may see results at first, this method of weight loss will ultimately make dieting far more difficult.

Don’t do it. Just don’t. The most effective way to diet is by cutting out anything that wouldn’t fit in the typical food pyramid.

FYI, this is not what I mean by the typical food pyramid.
