How to do crash diet?
Doing crash diet is not an easy thing; there will be rules and regulations to be stuck to. Any mistake done during the course will lead to many serious side effects. So, one should know all the rules before beginning the course. Usually crash diet does not have required levels of vitamins, minerals and proteins and this will force the person to rely on multivitamin supplements, iron and calcium supplements. It is also very common to lose some water and minerals during the period, to compensate this loss fruit juices without adding sugar should be taken more often. Skimmed buttermilk and coconut water too are good substitutes. The body’s muscles too are affected due to this diet and tend to lose mass, in order to cope up this situation proper amounts of proteins should be taken. 0.75 grams of protein per day should be taken each day without fail to keep the health of muscles. Eggs, non-vegetarian and nuts should be taken to get protein. One more important thing to do is to eat less amount of food spread for four times in a day; doing so will keep the sugar levels normal in the body.
All the above said things should be followed to get maximum benefits from crash diet.
