Does anyone who has ever started a diet hope that the weight comes off slowly? Probably not, and it’s understandable for people to want to see rapid results. That can become a serious problem when someone goes to extremes by cutting down too drastically on the amount that they eat. We all eat for at least one good reason, and that’s so we can continue to live. Without food, we would all die and that’s why starvation diets are dangerous.
All of our bodily functions rely on the nutrition we get from food and the heart is no exception. An improperly nourished heart is more likely to quit than one that receives all the required nutrients that a balanced diet provides. You do not want a shortcut diet turning into a shortcut to the grave.
