Diet tips are undeniably useful to base the changes of your new lifestyle on. However, some people apply these suggestions and take them to the extreme. Here are some diet tips that are certainly dangerous if practiced in the uttermost level. StreamlineInfo has compiled a short list of 5 Dangerous Diet Tips!

5. Go “Nuts” On Nuts

This phrase have been used all over diet magazines, television, articles online, etc. If you take this expression in a literal manner, there is no way you will lose weight. Eating nuts in general is helpful to your body considering that nuts are comprised of high amounts of both monosaturated fat and polysaturated fat (the healthy kinds of fat). Although it contains healthy benefits, binging on nuts is harmful for you. Nuts are very high in calories, and if you don’t watch the quantity of your consumption, it will lead to weight gain. Also, eating too much nuts can cause dyspepsia (also known as indigestion) and bloating. Surveys have shown that a great percentage of teenagers that consume a high amount of nuts on a daily basis have acne, but this report has yet to be proven accurate. Limit your nut intake by a handful a day. As long as you are active and you exercise often, then weight gain should not be a worry. Nuts are healthy! Just don’t go too “nuts” on them.

4. Eat Plenty of Fruits

There is no doubt that fruits are good for you. They are natural and unaltered in any way unless they are dried or preserved with juice in a container. Some dietitians recommend “no processed food diet” to lose weight. That results to people eating natural growing food and choosing fruits over vegetables is expected considering that they are more flavorful. Be aware that fruits contains quite an amount of sugar. They are indeed healthy, but too much consumption of fruits will not aid in a healthy diet. What you need to do is balance your meals by including an example of each section from the food pyramid on your plate.

3. Low-carb Diets

Reducing your carbohydrate intake is claimed to be one of the keys to a faster weight loss process. This might be true to a certain extent, on the downside though, it is intensely dangerous. Dieters get into this strange mood and keep their body deprived from carbohydrates. The fear of not burning the excess carbohydrates they eat gets into their minds too much. Why is this form of diet dangerous? The glucose found in complex carbohydrates is the form of energy that is imperative for the brain that enables you to move and perform tasks. If you keep your brain from obtaining the fuel it needs, serious health problems will be one of the consequences; and that is not worth it.

2. Tea for Metabolism

Along with tea’s high amount of catechins which aids in boosting a person’s metabolism, it also contains caffeine. Like any other caffeine-consisted drinks, you have to watch the dosage of what you take. Too much tea results in serious heart problems such as tachyrcardia. Tachyrcardia is an unusual rapid heart beating. If this issue is not put into consideration, it can be fatal, even deadly.

1. Drink A LOT of Water

Water is a known natural hunger suppressant. Like any other edible material or drinks, too much consumption of anything is dangerous, it might be hard to believe but include water in that warning. There have been several death reports of people due to drinking too much water in a short period of time (also known as Hyper-hydration). Drinking too much will cause your system to be intoxicated with the overabundance of electrolytes. It is recommended to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. This is NOT for everybody. You have to acknowledge your height and weight and include that in your calculations.


Do not jeopardize your health over a demented method of dieting. All you need to do is eat healthy, balanced meals and exercise. Losing weight fast is not always healthy. Your body needs to adapt to the change first and as long as you’re consistent with your plans, then you are on the right track.
