I TRIED THE IU (아이유) KPOP IDOL DIET AND THIS HAPPENED


Hey gang! Welcome back to my channel, if you are a subscriber. If you are not: why? So today’s video is all about a kpop diet. That is right. I tried a diet. A lot you may not be aware that kpop culture doesn’t really have celebrities the same way that we do They have idols and those idols are Trained by production companies in singing and dancing and when they’re ready they debut as a band Or as an artist and they are kind of like perfect and the problem with that is that a lot of the time they feel pressured to have a certain image and one part of that is being thin. As a result of that, a lot of k-pop artists go on these insane diets. Recently, Jimin from BTS admitted that he went on a diet then, and he didn’t have a meal for 10 days That’s next level crazy But I have to say it’s not too dissimilar from the diet that I went on for this video the diet that I went on is the diet of kpop idol IU IU has been very vocal about having issues with eating and issues with her body image Which is probably why this diet is as insane as it is. So a lot of people in YouTube have started doing this diet for their videos and The thing that I found with that most of them is that they weren’t telling Realistic accounts of what it’s like to go on a diet that has such a calorie deficit compared to like the recommended daily average So this diet consists of having an apple for breakfast a sweet potato for lunch and a protein shake for dinner An apple is 70 to 100 calories depending on how big a sweet potato is 130 to 170 again depending on its size and a protein shake is around 100 to 150 depending on what you you know have it with mine’s about 100 Yeah, you’re looking at around a 300 400 calorie day, and that is hard because the recommended daily average is between 1800 and 2400 so it’s like “What?” So I tried this diet You know just because I thought I would like to give a realistic account of what it’s like to go on one of these diets And the science behind why they just don’t work. My body changed so much in three days it was insane But I will leave you to the video to see that. So the way I’m doing this video is I will start with by showing you my measurements from before this diet You will see the vlogging for the three days that I did the diet, and then you’ll see the after effect of the diet That was a mouthful. Without further ado, I will hand you over to past Ellbat to tell you all about it I’ll see you at the end of the video, bye! Obviously I need some way of measuring my change during this challenge And I’ve seen that a lot of people doing this diet have actually done it by weight I don’t actually weigh myself And I don’t advocate that you do weigh yourself because weight isn’t actually a very good way to measure progress at all It doesn’t take into account a lot of factors like your muscle weight because I’ve seen muscle is heavier than fat It doesn’t take into account, you know, your bone density. It doesn’t take into account, you know, your height And I think that people often fixate on weight far too much, so I’m gonna be doing it by measurements And I’m going to measure my waist and my thighs, and I’m just gonna see if there’s any change Motorcycle Yes, as was saying. I’m gonna measure my waist and my thighs And I’m gonna see if there’s any difference at the end of the… the diet. Obviously I’m not looking to lose any weight It’s just gonna be interesting to see where the weight comes off and that’s another benefit of Measurements is that you know you-it’s very specific it can tell you where there’s toning if there’s toning Where there’s weight change if there’s weight change. Where as weight is just a bit vague isn’t it really so yeah measurements. Let’s do it Got my measurement tape okay So my waist is 26 and a half And I’m gonna do the top of my thigh as well So that one is exactly 23 This one is also 23, but it’s like one bit a little bit bigger so Those are the measurements so I’m currently just like on my bed. It is day one of the IU diet challenge I’m already kinda tired. I woke up. I have, you know Done a couple of odd jobs, I’ve had shower and now I’ve got to go and have breakfast And I’m feeling kind of hard done by because usually I would eat like a big bowl of porridge with tablespoon of peanut butter, some some banana, bit of Stevia in there And now I’ve got to have an apple No joke so I’ve just come downstairs and like the fruit balls that and all my apples are gross Yeah, they were like powdery, so I’m not gonna eat them. I’m gonna whip to the shops and buy some more apples and some Sweet potato So my memory card just said it’s broken Essentially so we’re gonna see how long this records for before telling me it hates me again And also see if I don’t crash my car, that’s also on the list of things not to do today *Overnight by Logic plays over the radio* I’m literally just molting… it’s not There’s a byproduct of having hair- you just molt I swear, to go shopping when you’re hungry Is the worst thing ever. Like it’s just been Easter, so there are Easter eggs discounted, and I can’t go near them I can’t find the sweet potatoes They’re so tiny why are they so small I need a good sized sweet potato Gonna go with the pink lady, I think *Wassup by Logic ft. Big Sean plays over the radio* Such a tune! Do you ever do that, where you can’t get out the car until the song’s finish because it’s so good? I do that. Let’s go! I’ve got apple in my hair. Wow. Wow. Think the worst thing about this is that I’m a snacker like I snack a lot throughout the day Um I’m not really a big meals person um I mean I’m not snacking obviously on this diet you can’t snack It’s just like an apple, a sweet potato, and a protein shake and so I’m missing my snacks. I did make the right choice going with the Pink Lady’s though. they’re refreshingly sour, so Bonus. I have tried to make this apple last as long as I can but I mean after this I’m down to my last slice. I think I’ve made it last like half an hour Which is pretty good going if you ask me. THE FINAL SLICE Goodbye my lover Goodbye, my friend. So it’s about half one. I’m just studying I’m not feeling that hungry right now but studying is kind of difficult because I normally snack when I study and there’s no snacks to eat right now um Yes, I’m just gonna eat my sweet potato whilst I eat- eat food… wait what? I’m just gonna eat my sweet potato whilst I study um and We’ll see this. I like sweet potatoes so I’m kind of looking forward to it Now I have to study So it is- what time is it? Sharon, help me- It’s five to eight and bruh, I feel like sh*t been on this diet for 12 12 hours and I Have no energy can’t work out cuz I have no energy I can’t even move off the sofa because I have no energy and I’m feeling rather rough No I’m making porridge. I’m too tired for this I feel awful and I feel tired and I have no energy and I want to cry and I can’t study and I can’t work out and My tummy is rumbling and I feel poorly so you girls eating some porridge There it is now ready beautiful porridge Good morning so today is day 2 I’m already struggling- like I’ve woken up with hunger pains, and I even cheated last night I had a bowl of porridge before bed, and I am in pain in my stomach I have very low energy getting, out of bed this morning was hard as hell, but I have work so That’s where I’m going Got my got that work clothes down Something else that’s an issue for me is that I am working 10:30 to 5:00 today and I haven’t liked prepped a sweet potato to eat for lunch I work in a restaurant, but it’s unlikely they’re going to cook a sweet potato for me So I’m gonna basically be living off an apple all day at work running around At this point I’m just like questioning like why would people do this? It’s not even a diet like it’s okay for a three-day challenge But people who are doing this for a week people, who are doing this as an actual long-term diet It is not sustainable. It is ridiculous. I have no energy I have hunger pains that hurt like hell. I’m just I’m getting a bit hungry A little bit. Can you tell? I’m gonna go and eat my morning apple, and then we’re gonna We’re gonna head to work. We’re gonna see how he goes So you girl just got back from work. I am really tired I didn’t get a break of work today, which means I also haven’t eaten so I’m so hungry I’ve eaten an apple so far today And I have been running around for the past eight hours like running on my feet without a break Carrying heavy stuff, so I am knackered You know, I put my sweet potato in the oven and I’m gonna pray that I don’t pass out while it cooks so Haha, where are you mr.. Sweet potato? Ah, there we are, my sweet potato I am on 999 subscribers mum No My mom is sneaking me No dang guy. Don’t unsubscribe don’t do that, please So as of today by the time you see this video. I will already have a thousand subscribers. Hopefully unless y’all subscribe Thanks for your support mum I’m actually just putting on my sweet potato right now, and so yeah, this is really exciting for me So thank you for a thousand Gang, hey *Africa by Toto plays in the background as the subscriber count goes from 988 to 1001* Anyway, thank you gang. My sweet potato is almost ready, in other news. I’m gonna go eat my soup potato because I am hungry Living off a damn apple. It’s not healthy Sad-looking potato, this. I’ve added some ketchup for a little bit of a fruit of- I may have thrown Thrown some potato- thank you Sharon for that assistance I’ve got- I’ve added some ketchup here for a bit of a fruity taste Really love this sweet potato. Wow, I needed this Here’s my protein shake that I have just made. It’s umm Chocolate-y in flavor, which is nice So the protein shake that I’ve just made is made from chocolate almond milk and protein powder I don’t actually eat dairy like I’m not even supposed to eat chocolate, but you know a girl can’t help herself But you know I definitely wouldn’t go anywhere near milk in its raw form or cheese I don’t even have cheese on pizza, would you believe? So that’s all my protein shake is, which is quite nice because it’s kind of like creamy which means it’s kind of filling Which means I’m not as hungry as I would be if I didn’t have this protein shake. I don’t really understand How you’re supposed to have a protein shake for dinner because like literally if you can look at it. It is so small It’s a glass And I understand that like protein good for you But having protein as a meal replacement is ridiculous. It’s not enough to sustain you. It’s not food It’s just protein like if you’re gonna have protein powder and you’re going to make protein shakes They are not meal replacements, which is why this diet is so frustrating because it is not dinner It’s not- you’ll gain no nutrition really out of that, its just protein and it’s making me kind of angsty Yeah, I have also taken all my makeup off so So angsty about having to eat this for dinner- actually dessert because I didn’t get my lunch so this is technically My lunch no my didn’t I don’t see I’ve got no energy, so I don’t know what’s going on. Hahaha. Okay. Good morning Good morning, the last day of this stupid diet Honestly, I have been waiting for this for the last three days I don’t know how people have done this diet for longer. I think you’re crazy if you have done I just I think you’re insane because there’s no way you have any energy. There’s no way you feel good. It’s just- it’s impossible I feel like I’m just going to cry I might still cry a Morning Sharon Hi. Yeah, I’m just telling everyone why they shouldn’t do diets Because it’s stupid Exactly And exhausting Exactly It’s not anything, it’s just like I keep getting like these waves of just being really really hot and feeling really unwell really nauseous Like at work yesterday I was struggling so much to concentrate cuz obviously I didn’t have Like the means to get my lunch because obviously it was a sweet potato. I should’ve pre-prepped it, but I just didn’t and so I Survived until like half hour six, seven o’clock on only an apple And I was running around on my feet all day like that’s just not healthy and I felt so unwell I was miserable And that like that’s one of the things about restrictive dieting, is that Not only does your mood sink because you’ve got no energy you become a bit of a bitch Like straight up, you do But you feel really unwell, really tired, and nothing productive comes out the combination of those three You just end up being really miserable And nobody really wants that. I don’t- I just don’t understand the people that done it for longer than three days We’ve done it for a week. It’s just so I’m gonna go have my morning apple in a minute. I get it cuz Apple phone Apple Apple Oh God, I just feel like a lot of these videos on this diet haven’t really been accentuated. How hard it is like They’ve all been like oh yeah. I took this for a week “Oh, and I lost 11 pounds!” and I’m like yeah, but how horrible did you feel? And most be like: “oh, I felt great. I mean I didn’t even need to eat anything.” and I’m like No one feels great when they’re eating this much because you’re literally eating base calories or eating calories that are enough to keep your body Functioning, but there’s no excess so any extra movements you’re doing on top of basic bodily functions like breathing is burning calories, it’s burning fat and There’s no way people feel good doing that and I’d and the people in the videos Who’ve been making it sound like? This is a really good really easy diet like I’ve got a problem with them because it’s not. It’s horrible. And also not to mention the fact that none of them have done a follow up think about this Diets like this that are so restrictive It’s that your body will essentially just go into starvation mode which means that it will retain Every calorie it gets because it doesn’t know where its next gonna get food, and it just thinks oh god. Oh god. Oh god I need to protect my body so the minute you stop eating this way and start eating a normal diet again Even if you phase it in your body will just cling to those calories And you’ll store its fat because it needs to think oh I need to store energy So because I don’t know where I’m going eat again And it will take a while for your body to come out of starvation mode and by the time It’s out of that you will have stored all of that weight back on again in fat This is why Diets like this that are mass restrictive are not long term solutions if you want a long term solution you need to change your actual everyday diet not to go on a diet You need to just eat a bit healthier- fruits and veg, you know, protein. You need to cut down your saturated fat You know, get more healthy fats in your diet. You need to count You know your fizzy drinks- things like that. It’s just It’s a matter of changing the way you’re eating the way you look at nutrition not just restricting because restricting will never give you a long-term weight solution because Unless you want to eat like this for the rest of your life Which I’m sure you don’t you won’t be able to keep that weight off and also you’ll be miserable so That’s another thing to keep in mind. I’m gonna go get my apple now it is 20 past ten, and I am very hungry, so we’re gonna go Look how puffy my face is today I am so hungry Not gonna lie to you I have cheated today The last protein shake of the diet, and I am so freaking happy It’s not going down very well Yeah, okay so today I had some chocolate cuz I was struggling and I also had a bowl of puffed rice With peanut butter because- not being funny- I can’t sustain myself on this diet. I was getting headaches I was tired I was grumpy and I was hungry and that is not a positive combination So I am I’m so happy to say adios, au revoir, to this little Little bish. Think it’s just one of those things that it’s just like I’m still in shock that people would be able to do this for a week How? How does one do that? Somebody inform me because I can’t I really can’t. So tomorrow morning I get to wake up and measure my body and see if there’s any change And generally just give an overall assessment of how this whole thing was. I think if you’ve got to this point in the video You know how my assessments gonna go But yeah we’ll see what tomorrow brings on measurement – so the protein check wasn’t enough so I was gonna eat turns out I mean pizza Oh my god, the diet is done Honestly the level of happy that I am that this bloody diet is over is Insane like I can go downstairs. I can eat whatever I want I can eat like a normal human being. I can function like a normal human being. I’m not gonna be moody all the Time it’s just good guys Um So yeah, I’m very happy. I did lose a lot of weight. I look way too thin I don’t really like it. It didn’t really come off of my legs though It came off of my tummy, which I expected because that’s where my weight normally comes off But yeah, I get to go out for lunch now I get to go downstairs, have a big breakfast, literally go to town and have a big lunch, it’s great I love my life. My waist went from 20 six and a half inches to 26 And my thighs lost a quarter of an inch each That is so much weight to lose in three days. I looked so skinny. I looked ill I felt ill. I wasn’t strong, I didn’t feel strong. I felt ill and It wasn’t a nice thing to feel I just I hated it. So right now I’m working really hard to like kind of regain that muscle and that fat that I lost before Because I just I don’t think it’s good for you. It’s not good for you You know if you want to change your body, if you’re not happy with the way you are looking, make healthier choices Change your actual everyday diet- do not go on a diet Because making healthier choices and having a balanced life allows you to live and enjoy your life And enjoy your body as well without feeling ill and faint and disgusting all the time. If you liked this video give it a thumbs If you didn’t like it give it a thumbs down Free world. You do you, boo Let me know in the comments if you think this diet is ridiculous, of what you think of kpop culture towards, you know, image. I’d love to hear what you guys have to say about it again. Thank you so much for 1k That is so cute And I love you all and I love all the support you give me from like the fan pages on Instagram To the really sweet messages you guys send me in the comments you leave on my videos Thank you, so so so so much. I love you very much, and I will see you next Monday with another video. Bye

  5. -silencio incomodo ahre-man esque argentina esta en todos lados

  6. I'm not sure what's going on but I seriously thought "why doesn't the motorcycle sound British?" Maybe I hit my head too hard the other day.

  7. its hard to go on a diet when you have asian parents and youre asian.. you try to starve yourself everyday because the expecatations of weight in your school is high and if youre fat youre fat everywhere, and then at home theres your parents and siblings all watching you, parents all giving you more food because theres too much leftover. honestly i give up on thinking of even going on a diet for now!

  8. It's called reverse physiology, if you tell us not to do it.. we're gonna do it.

  9. When YouTubers can't get straight to the point…

  10. the only thing stopping me from trying this diet is the fact that i hate apples and sweet potatoes lmao

  11. Dude, i have like 2 months with this diet and nothing happen, you exaggerate things and you don't even exercise, and you eat somthing more, really chocolate, and the last day you ate pizza!!, que exagerada.

  12. Ha ha thought the motorcycle was my stomach

  13. I know this is kinda old but me I'm 12 and I only had a protein shake for breakfast and nothing else the rest of the day and I feel good just a slight headache but that's bc I am a little sick but I am planning to do this diet for a month so I hope it goes well but I usually only eat 2 meals a day and they are pretty small so I might survive I dont knkw though but I am also going to combine it with the jungkook work out so let's see I dont die from being tired and headaches but other than that I hope I survive I would do the jimin diet but my mom would kill me if I did shes fine with me doing the iu diet so I'll do it

  14. I'm a child with body image issues. I cry every night just because i hate my stomach. I want to excercise but I'm too busy with school and stress. I try fasting for a couple of hours but i end up bingeing later on the night. Please can you guys help me on how to lose weight?

  15. Ellbat :Hello guy
    Jimin:nice to meet u guy
    Me:uhhh i mean hello💜

  16. she is so beautiful 😍

  17. This diet sounds like a typical way professionals slim down before a show.
    It's a good way to get rid of water weight but it comes back once you incorporate a carbohydrate. Plus you need a strong mentality to continue this diet longer than 2 weeks.

  18. I don’t need to diet to become skinny, I just need to not eat for a day and I lose a kilo… I have abs without doing anything, 8-9 kilos under weight too 🤣

  19. me: i wanna do this! this is so easy
    my schedule: -class from 10am-7pm
    -quartet practices
    -cheerdance practice for a month

  20. me: i wanna do this! this is so easy
    my schedule: -class from 10am-7pm
    -quartet practices
    -cheerdance practice for a month

  21. Stan monsta x

  22. Lot of people who try this diet is so skinny wtf. I am a whale

  23. are you able to drink water in between? or would the water weight make the whole thing not work?

  24. I wanna try this way of diet but my mom is a Filipino sooooo🙂

  25. Don’t use the Lord’s name in vain, hun.

  26. U should have mentioned a lot earlier in the video that u failed the challenge… but I digress

  27. you look like Syrena from POTC.

  28. This diet was catered to a kpop star. Heres how it works. An apple is extremely low calorie, yet high in healthy sugar breakfast to get energy (important in calorie deficit diets). This will help the idol actually have the energy to get out of bed. A sweet potato is full of carbs and starches while being relatively low calorie. This gives slow, steady energy release for the calorie deprived person. I imagine they eat this during the day to have energy to constantly go through routines or work outs. The protein shake ensures that the person wont waste muscle while barely having calories. This will keep them toned and trim fat, not muscle. Drinking a bunch of water keeps them hydrated and feeling full.

  29. It cant really sustain because you're taller than IU🤣

  30. Imma do this diet just that imma change it a lil, i am going to have a fruit (apples, blueberries and strawberries) for breakfast, sweet potato for lunch, and since i go to school i would have a smol smol snack and a shake for dinner! Idk if this still counts but imma try it for 3 days (the regular one) and then do my version for uhh the rest of my life? Jk jk imma try it until i get to my desired weight (100 pounds). My mom is probably NEVER gonna let me so yea but I’ll try

  31. you have a perfect body to begin with!

  32. Who else here wants to not eat for like a week but end up going at the kitchen for some reason and see some good stuff u just can't resist

  33. Camote con caPsU?? Wadafak

  34. Why?? Because I need Arab sub 😆

  35. When she was saying this diet is less calories then you should eat so anything more then breathing makes you lose weight. Isn't that the whole point?

  36. is just having one meal every day sooooo

  37. The “if you are not a subscriber, why”? got me to sub, you tricky girl

  38. Making me miss England!
    I miss people that talk and pronounce things right, stupid America 😂

  39. Mk I dont have a scale so results are just visual even though this method of weight loss isnt recommended I am willing so ill update a bit

  40. I remember having a diet much extreme with literally just 100 calories or less a day for 2 months and a half, ended up in the hospital later by fainting at school.

  41. omg i thought the motorcycle was just my stomach growling,

  42. Th’whol🌎 ♥️rapNhiphop🤣🤣🤣

  43. IU is Queeniee 👑

  44. Am I the only one that got mad that she was already super skinny to begin with…

  45. They are able to do this cause they are small and hardly do anything

  46. Honestly this is overreacting that isn't much weight to loose in 3 days and it would probably be so easy to do this for a week since the people in the other videos that did it for 5 to 7 days said they where hungry but fine and they're results where bigger

  47. Wtf are you kidding me? You cheated all the time .. lol you ate porridge, chocolate, pizza, ketchup .. so you didn’t even actually do the diet and you are still wining around. Good for you being one of those girls who are skinny without dieting. Others have to do it in order to look like you .. and just because you can’t even do it properly for 3 days that doesn’t mean others can not be more disciplined than you – so you don’t have to say other youtubers are lying when they say doing this diet was okay for them. It’s the same like fasting & detoxing (which is super healthy for the body btw and you eat even less!!) .. most people are not disciplined enough to do it for two days .. others can last for 2 weeks. You just don’t have a strong will.

  48. I love her personality and sarcasm !

  49. “This diet was so painful!”

    laughs in anorexic

  50. Your music in the car game is on flik
    My favorite part of the video
    And speaking the truth of the B.S. of dieting and why are there so many anorexics commenting on the video like you're not mentally ill

  51. Me: having fasted for days and only drinking tea and water
    Her: I have no energy

  52. Did u have the protein shake the first day (also u could’ve just slept early and woken up earlier)

  53. Don’t try this ay she was already so tiny and it doesn’t work for everyone

  54. You have 999 subscribers when you are filming this? As of 04 Oct 19, you got 245k subscribers wow! You deserve this. I like how you analyse the whole diet and teaching people how you will go to starvation mode and will gain more fat than before the diet. This is very educational.

  55. could you make a video of what YOU would normally eat in a day and your excercise routine? if you haven't already done so

  56. She doesn't need to do this… She's already got a nice body… I feel worse now 😂

  57. the first time i watched this video i was just a week from getting over an anorexia relapse and i could recognize that this is not healthy. now i’m in the middle of one an anorexia relapse and i want to start this diet although it’s not to far from what i eat daily. it’s currently 7:33 pm and the only thing i’ve eaten today was a sandwich in the morning that had too much calories than i was comfortable with. ive just been drinking water and keeping myself full of liquid. just the usual ig

  58. Motorcycle

  59. Superb..! All things you said was absolutely right.loved this video

  60. The bad thing is, I have had less in a day then this.

  61. Was mir immer öfter aufgefallen ist und was mich richtig stört, warum schreibt man eine deutsche Überschrift und spricht dann im Video englisch? Dann schreib gefälligst eine englische Überschrift. Man sucht sich deutsche Videos raus die man verstehen will und dann das! UND bevor sich die anderen jetzt melden und sagen "Dann lern doch englisch" lasst es bleiben. Bitte deutsche Überschriften zu deutschen Videos, DANKE!

  62. We all wish we were naturally skinny

  63. Me:mom,I'm going on a diet
    Mom: cHiLd ,…nO
    Me:why?
    Mom: bEcAuSe
    Me:but-
    Mom:nO!!!

  64. I love how she says "puhtatuh" so cute omg

  65. She cheated the diet though so I feel like it would have shown more results

  66. Tbh I might actually do this diet it seems effective tbh

  67. Why do you diet you are not even fat 😭

  68. ok.. im doing it but with cucumbers instead of apples… bc its less calories wish me luck.. im korean so i need to be smaller than i alr am

  69. this girl is so annoying like she if she really wanted to showcase the diet, she wouldn’t have cheated. also she lost .5 around her waist and .5 combined for her thighs and she says “i look ill” girl you’re barely smaller than you were before?? you’ve got a high metabolism, you have no idea what it’s like

  70. I'm currently doing my own diet.
    Not eating for 2 days and consume about 200-500 calories on the third day and then repeat.
    Works great so far.

  71. those eyes 😍

  72. "I feel ill, very ill."

    laughs in fasting

  73. I actually think that I may try this because hating my body isn't that fun and maybe it'll help.. well it's a better idea then crying myself to sleep

  74. You are so beautiful without makeup on ! Wow !
    Btw.. you remind me of Will Poulter a bit and it makes me small 🙂

  75. Who else is trying this diet?

  76. Lol i think it will be easier on a Muslim person cus we fast and fasting is like 16 hours of no food and water for 30 days what up muslims

  77. Tbh boring food hits different when you’re restricting

  78. Me:
    Nobody:

    Ellbat being hangry for 21 minutes straight

  79. Thank you for actually being honest!!!. ❤️❤️

  80. This is so sad T_T why do these K-pop idols have to do this like please eat something.

  81. im commenting very late and im really concerned with the number of comments considering this!

    I’m on antibiotics that hugely decrease my appetite and I have my own body issues. This does appeal me but I know I can’t do this to myself!! I know it’s super hard to understand why, ESPECIALLY if you are a recovering or currently suffering from and ED – but mainly to those who don’t, please listen in order to prevent EDs.

    I’ll list a bunch of reasons:
    1. surprise – your body needs calories, it needs energy. food gives you energy for basic organ functions – you’re not just depriving your stomach of food, you’re depriving EVERY SINGLE organ system of MUCH NEEDED energy to function properly and ensure you are healthy.
    2. this means that you will be much more tired, unable to concentrate/focus/memorise and feel a lot weaker. You’ll be more susceptible to illness as your immune system becomes weak. You’re likely to experience intense headaches and nausea. the lack of nutrients weakens your hair and nails as well. Is it really worth giving up your body to be something society tells you to??
    3. if you’re someone ‘heavier’ with a higher body fat percentage, this is going to have the opposite effect. while on this diet, sooner or later, your body will go into survival mode to protect itself. it’ll grab onto any calories or fat and hold onto it MUCH TIGHTER. it knows now that you’re gonna starve it and obviously doesn’t want that. this will make losing fat/weight MUCH HARDER.
    4. your metabolism will decrease significantly. same reason as above, it doesnt want to burn your calories for energy which makes it harder to lose weight and have more energy.
    5. extreme weight loss quickly can result in your liver producing more cholesterol. the more cholesterol in your bile, the high chance you have of developing gallstones. gallstones are extremely painful and cause nausea, bloating, vomiting, indigestion and heartburn to name a few symptoms.
    6. as your body runs out of fat to feed off of, it turns to muscle. you experience muscle loss and basically become skin and bones. instead of looking healthy and toned, your skin becomes dull and you become extremely weak

    This is such a long list but I’m genuinely worried for everyone in the comments. this diet is seriously not worth it, please dont try it

    there are so many other weight loss methods

    – portion control : eat relatively healthy diets but smaller portions – therefore you eat what you want but your calorie intake decreases
    – having smaller, more frequent meals : its been proved having smaller more frequent meals can help your body burn off more calories
    – HIIT training : you can search it up but its proven to be very effective as it consists of consistent working out but in ‘resting’ and ‘high intensity’ intervals that means youre constantly moving and burning calories
    – find a suitable exercise that targets your needs
    – dance : if you dont like to exercise, put some music on and dance your ass off or play Just Dance. get your body to somehow move
    – walk : ditch the car and walk to the station, walk your dog or walk to the grocery stores. walking is actually a very effective weight loss method that is low impact but you can do it often, inexpensively and for long times. Try to get at least 10,000 steps

    I’m not a nutritionist, personal trainer etc. i’m a student that has seen enough people struggling with food and exercise and who’s done my own research. don’t come for me if my advice doesnt work. research and invest time in figuring out what works FOR YOU.
