The buzz now is that Brit singing sensation, Rita Ora has checked herself into an extreme weight loss boot camp as part of her preparation for the launch of her new album.
Who can forget Beyonce’s detox diet of maple syrum, lemon and cayenne for her role in the movie, Dream girls? She successfully lost 20 pounds but discourages anyone to do as she did. Although she successfully shed the weight in time for her role, something must have felt wrong in the process for her to adamantly discourage others to do it.
Weight Loss By Detox Boot Camp May Deliver Quick Results But…
There’s no denying it. Most detox diets bring fast results since most are fluid-based. Physicians and fitness experts warn, though, that although you can lose the pounds fast while at it, you are most likely to gain it back once you’re off it. A diet based on fluids is unsustainable and unhealthy.
What people need to understand is that Beyonce’s detox diet may have been successful but it was also a short-lived success. Years later, media had her “un-endorsing” the lettuce diet she took on in preparation for a Superbowl performance.
The problem with detox diets is that it slows down the body’s metabolism; once you’re off it and you’ve started eating again, your body will transform most of what you eat into fats. Detox diets also cause you to have low energy levels, low blood sugar, you’ll experience muscle fatigue, dizziness and even nausea.
Here’s an article on mydaily.co.uk:
According to the The Daily Mail, the food was mainly boiled potatoes and broths and the bootcamp participants are made to chew their food at a minimum of 30 times. A trick many diet experts recommend as chewing longer feel full.For some unknown reason pop starlet Rita Ora has been spending time at the world’s toughest fat camp. The 22-year-old recently checked into the Viva Mayr clinic aka the home of gruelling detoxes, in Austria, spending £1,500-a-night for the privilege.
A Healthier Diet Alternative For Detox Boot Camp
Instead of just going for fluids backed by pills and herb supplements that practically have no proof of effectiveness, you can go for a diet alternative of whole fruits, vegetables, fiber, lean protein, low-fat dairy and whole grains and limit your food intake to up to 1,600 calories in a day. This will successfully ease you into losing about 2 to 3 pounds in a week without feeling starved.
Detoxing and other quick-fix diets can put your health at risk. Mark Tusoy, a runner and a martial arts enthusiast, had to be rushed to the hospital for an organ failure after taking on a drastic diet.
Serious dieting must be supervised by physicians and nutritionists.
The article went on to say that the detox boot camp was supposed to train Rita Ora maintain her diet and her weight. By detox definition, it seems like a long shot, but let’s wait and see.
