Weight loss: Weight loss is the reduction in total body weight, most often resulting from diet, exercise or both. However, in certain cases of severe or extreme weight loss, fat and other materials in the body may also be depleted as well. This article explores weight loss from different perspectives, which may help you determine whether or not it’s a good thing for you.

Increased Energy: One reason many people try low carb diets is because of the increased energy many feel after eating less food. While increased energy is an obvious benefit, many low carb diet plans may lead to other health problems as well, such as reduced sperm count and even organ dysfunction. Others have reported the disappearance of their body hair as a side effect of reduced calorie diets. While this may lead to loss of self-confidence, it is important to remember that low calorie diets do not cause these side effects.

Physical Activity: As stated above, there are several reasons why people lose weight, but there are also several reasons why they gain back the weight once they stop dieting. The most common reason is excessive weight loss leads to reduced calorie intake, which leaves the body with less fuel to function efficiently. For some, this can translate into increased cravings for food, which may lead to another problem. Some people have noted a decrease in sexual desire and have reported getting sick more often after going on a low calorie diet. To avoid this type of situation, healthy eating and physical activity should always be part of your weight loss plan.
