Some Food Resolutions to Avoid

by Rita Alonso 07/21/2019

New season, new life! That has been the mantra each time the end of the previous season approaches. To many people, the new season means a total overhaul on the way they live, the friends they keep and most especially, the food they consume. People take measures, set goals with hopes that by the end of the year, they will come out better than before.

In that spirit of resolution, people tend to make some dangerous decisions that could affect their health negatively in the long run. Most of these food resolutions do more harm than the intended aim. Here are some food resolutions that you should avoid.

1. Cutting out carbohydrates. For many looking for a way to lose some weights, the first advice they get is usually to cut out carbs from their diet. It is true that cutting away carbs will cause you to lose some weight. The logic is that the body is using up the stored glycogen in your muscles and liver, to make up for the ones you are not giving it, not necessarily because you are losing fat. The key here is to apply moderation.

2. Getting rid of fatty foods. Here is another common food resolution, especially people with oily skin who are looking for ways to get rid of acne caused by the blockage of skin pores. The appropriate decision shouldn't be to cut out fat, instead, focus on eating the right kind of fat. Good fats, which are monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats help your body a great deal. Apart from absorbing vitamins and building cell membranes, they also facilitate your ability to heal quickly and repair yourself.

3. Juicing. Some people believe they are taking care of their health by juicing to get more fruits and veggies into their system. Many also do this to lose weight and over the years, this has proved to be dangerous to the body. Juicing takes away all of the fibers from the fruits and vegetable but leaves the sugars which can lead to an increase in your blood sugar level. Juicing can be quite dangerous if done wrong.

4. Low-calorie diets. “Cut down on your calorie intake” has been a significant phrase health-conscious people tend to make often. They believe that the less calorie they consume, the better the meal is. However, be aware that a low-calorie diet is equally as dangerous as taking a massive amount of calories. The tip here is to apply moderation. Remember, you need energy, and without calories, you will be burning your body reservoirs, leading to unhealthy weight loss.

These are major food resolutions that people make that are harmful and please, avoid them at all cost. They do more harm than the intended result. If you have made a food resolution, now is the time to review them and make some adjustments. Speak to a doctor or dietitian if you are looking to make new food habits.
