Apr 26th, 2023

New Delhi: When it comes to weight loss , people try all sorts of things from eating less to dry fasting, exercising and whatnot. But for a wellness journalist, going on a 101-day detox for weight loss went horribly wrong when dieting too hard forced her body to start eating itself. Brigid Delaneys detox plan required her to not eat for two weeks and while it promised to reset the body backfired terribly. Instead of food, Brigid was asked to drink herbal drinks giving her 250 calories every day. The remaining 87 days, she was asked to restrict herself to 50 grams of chicken, half a cucumber or a boiled egg. The detox diet was so brutal that it left her light-headed at times and she even struggled to cross the street at times. It put her body in ketosis a process wherein the body starts to burn fat to produce energy. She even started to smell bad and suffered from insomnia, night sweats and bad dreams. After 70 days, she quit the diet when sharp chest pain started to occur that felt like a heart attack. The clinic that advised Brigit the diet told her to not worry. But after consulting with a doctor, she was told that the chest pain was likely to be her body eating heart muscle for fuel. And doctors also revealed that if at all this would have given any benefits beyond the pain, it would be short-lived. She ended up gaining the lost weight again and more pounds within six months.

According to experts, there are some simple and sustainable techniques for weight loss that help shed pounds slowly but in a way that prevents it from accumulating again.
