    4 Unhealthy, Dangerous Weight-Loss Methods
    At BodContour, we hear a lot of horror stories about people who use dangerous ways to lose weight. We encourage patients to never use the following weight-loss methods because they can result in serious health consequences.

    Diuretics


    Diuretics

    The term "diuretics" refers to any substance that increases the production of urine. Some companies market their diuretics as "water pills."

    A lot of people take diuretics because they think the water pills can help them shed fat. In reality, the pills only force their bodies to expel more water. While the scale may say that someone has lost weight, it doesn't mean the person has slimmed down from fat loss.

    Diuretics are an ineffective way to lose weight. They're also unhealthy. Serious side effects of taking diuretics include:
    - Electrolyte imbalances that can cause irregular heartbeat and muscle cramps.

    Things You Should Never Do to Lose Weight

    BodContour talks to plenty of people who try unsafe ways to lose weight before they come to us for a safe, effective alternative. We try to convince people to avoid unhealthy weight loss strategies. Some of the worst cases that we see come from people who follow extreme diets, rely on supplements and purge food before they can digest it.

    Follow Extreme Diets (Starvation, Fasting or Very Low-Calorie)


    Follow Extreme Diets (Starvation, Fasting or Very Low-Calorie)

    Extreme diets that severely restrict calorie intake can help people lose weight. The weight loss, however, usually doesn't last long. The diets can also put a person's health in jeopardy.

    - Convince the brain that it's in a state of emergency
    - Put dieters at risk of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome
