Constantly confronted by the near-skeletal models gracing the glossy pages of supermarket tabloids, it is little wonder that today’s young, and eve not-so-young, women are falling into the trap of irresponsible weight loss. And while pleas for health, responsibility, and the feminist perspective (all valid in their own right) fall too often on unresponsive ears, perhaps a different approach is necessary. Confronting girls and women with the concrete consequences of dangerous diets, diet pills, and eating disorders may be the required shock tactic to cease self-destructive patterns. There is little need for exaggeration when considering these consequences, not the least of which is the loss of the beauty these women are striving to emulate. While the thin models look great, it takes a load of makeup artists and airbrush experts to make them appear that way. Unhealthy weight loss, when it reaches a dangerous level, results in pale, gray skin, sunken faces, and even hair loss. Bald is not beautiful. More seriously, maintaining a BMI of less than sixteen can cause unpleasant bodily effects. Many super-thin girls find it difficult to stand for long periods or even go up the stairs. They often report severe insomnia which prevents clear thinking. And because of a lack of healthy fat, they are constantly cold even at normal temperatures. Some of this is a result of failed circulation. Further, and less spoken of, extremely low body weights can result in a loss of bladder and bowel control. This is far from sexy. Feeding tubes aren’t sexy either.

Drastic measures are impossible to avoid when a woman’s health declines to the point of death. While this might call up images of the walking skeleton stuck in a sterile clinic, there are life-threatening conditions that can result much earlier in a course of unhealthy weight loss. Malnutrition can result from insufficient food intake, and judgment too is impaired fairly quickly. Diet pills, especially those imported from unregulated overseas markets, can put stress on the vital organs. Girls have died in Japan, Thailand, and even the United States because of the tax they put on their livers and hearts. Just as dangerous are the behaviors associated with bulimia which complicates the work of the heart. Taking ipecac can result in a heart attack, even on the first attempt. These are real consequences. Unfortunately, our society has made being a size six out to be an awful alternative. Ultimately, the female form needs to be reclaimed, a healthy curve (or at least a little flesh) needs to be restated as the normal, but this may be a long way off.

For the moment, the revelation of these unpleasant consequences of unhealthy weight loss need to be put before the same women who see those staged magazine covers. There are variety of diets are suitable to an individual according to one’s personality, physical structure, obesity, hereditary diseases, physical illness, environmental weather etc,. But a common thing you have compulsory follow is, you have to make sure that all your regular diets are based with essential nutrients and minerals for good health and immunity. Usually in vegetarian, eating all kind of foods from all groups according to our seasonal availability is the best rule for your healthy diet. At the same time, the quantity of food you take on regular basis should be less than your quantity of diligence or hard physical work always. In your daily in taking, protein must be rich and minimum fifty grams of protein you have to consume in your daily routine diet as an average quality from your adolescent period. If your muscle tissues should not be broken even for silly reasons, you have to take protein enriched food regularly. In order to avoid unwanted physical fatigue, and fluid imbalances, you have to consume carbohydrates at least one hundred grams per day. Adequate fiber in your regular food will help for proper bowel functions and it will completely avoid constipation which is a major thing for all sorts of ailments.

Cholesterol is one of the major cause for heart attack and you have to avoid cholesterol enriched foods and more than twenty five to thirty milligram cholesterol; is the best quantity in your daily diet. The practice of following any kind of diet plans from outside is more hassle than your own diet plans according to your health condition and needs. You have to avoid all junk foods and follow to take nutritional items for your well healthy physique and to maintain lower body weight. Diet for 50%, water for 25% and 25% empty stomach is the best principle for your good health. Instead of eating three times in full stomach, taking six to seven times light food and refreshment is the best idea


  1. simply complicated says:

    About ten years ago I was ran over in a hit and run and had to go on drugs to try to get me working again as I spilt most of the content of my head up the road.
    about 7 years before this I had really bad depression after a relationship broke up and never took meds for this but sorted myself out over a short period of time.

    I am fine at the moment, but for the past 3-5 weeks I have been in a bad mood and pretty down, sometimes thinking a end of a shot gun would be great, but thinking it was really becoming a great thought, but something that I wouldn’t consider becoming real, if that makes sense?
    Two years ago I was made bankrupt by a company who I took to court for not paying there bill and it was really stressful as they lied in court and it was hard to prove they were. then the court made a unlawful judgement and it cost me everything, I even finished the relationship with my partner for 9 years and we also have a child together.

    My brain constantly races thoughts and often I have sleepless nights, because of this and my sleep pattern has been around 4 hours a night for many years.( since the birth of my daughter)

    I tried to quite smoking about 7 years ago and went on zyban, this made me manic and also short fused and irresponsible, I have heard this can be an effect for bipolar people.
    I keep forgetting things, even what year or day it is and quite a lot of my life in general,
    I think this is because of where I was ran over as I couldn’t speak correctly for a few months after.

    I suffered with depression coming to terms with the effects of being ran over for around 5 years, before this I was clever with an IQ of 176, a few weeks after I was down to 60 and because of the way I functioned before I had lots of problems dealing with how to learn and what people would call normal (as I didn’t work normally).

    I get mood spikes where I can be depressed for long amounts of time and then hyper or in a good mood for a very short time, as in seconds and then a depressed state.
    I cannot remember the last time I was happy or ecstatic, even at the birth of my daughter.

    Grandeur ( I do know more than most people so cannot find the balance here)
    Depressed state for long periods
    Not remembering being happy
    Very few normal moods ( don’t know what normal is)
    Suicide thoughts ( though fully understanding of it, and is more emotional response)
    Feeling the world is against me (court being one, and everything going wrong for me, being ran over)
    Going hyper on anti depressants (and somewhat violent)
    Anti social not mixing with people, very few friends (though with drink I am fine and make friends)
    Little sleep pattern, and sometimes sleep for days on end.
