If you take crash diets, you must understand that by consuming such food some important nutrients are lost in your body and you will suffer from nutrient deficiency that could lead to various other health issues.

Also crash diet is not beneficial for the body’s immune system. You are aware that immune system safeguards the body from diseases and is very important for good health. Only immune system helps our body to fight against various harmful viruses and bacteria which lead to diseases. If you do not have a strong immune system you might face various diseases like cholera, typhoid, malaria and various other diseases caused due to viruses and bacteria. As per survey in health magazine, it was reported that seventy percent of people taking crash diet have faced flu and other problems like common cold since their immune system is not good enough to fight the harmful microbes.
Crash diets could create problems such as bulimia which can disrupt your usual life and get your bed ridden and sick in hospital. Whatever food you take will not get digested properly and will cause vomiting if you have bulimia. Digestive organs become weak and do not function properly because of this disease and since patients vomit frequently, the digestive enzymes are ejected through mouth leading to teeth corrosion. Diseases such as anorexia appear among fashion models because of crash diets which can damage their kidneys, heart and liver as their body gets delicate and is not strong enough to safeguard them from external injuries.
