Preying on people's insecurities, infomercials and different fads have made people do crazy things to lose weight. These methods claim heavy weight loss without any workout or diet. Take a look at a few such stupid methods for weight loss that you shouldn't try.
Wrapping up with plastic wrap: As bizzare as it sounds this is one of the most horrible things you could do to yourself to lose weight. People have tried sleeping overnight wearing plastic wraps and the results are a naught. For a minute or two your belly might seem a little less bulky but that is just because of the pressure caused by the tight plastic wrap. And it clearly shows that you are not letting your skin breathe.
Starvation: Depriving yourself of essential nutrients that are necessary for the proper functioning of your body is the only thing you are doing by starving. You lose only water weight and you regain the weight once you eat.
Smoking: Some people try heavy smoking to lose weight. You might lose some weight but it is very essential that you realise that it is one of the many side-effects of smoking.
Excessive green tea: Drinking excessive green tea is going to take you no where if you don't accompany it with proper diet and exercise. Green tea is no magic potion for weight loss.
Various pills available on the tele-shopping channels: DO NOT FALL FOR THE FAKE CLAIMS . There are hundreds of cases where in the consumers have only regretted trying these pills. Do not go for anything that is not prescribed by a legitimate doctor.
Sauna belt: Similar to the those pills advertised on TV do not opt for any type of sauna belts or anything of that sorts unless prescribed by a certified trainer or a medical practitioner.
Body shapers: Wearing shapers will only cause skin problem and temporary toned figure. It is highly suffocating and will cause a lot of discomfort to you.
Laxatives: Many binge on laxatives to induce diarrhea to lose weight. People, that's called welcoming weakness and nutritional deficiency. Probably the worst way to lose weight.
Antiemetic: Similar to laxatives, few people take Antiemetics to induce vomit so that the food doesn't enter the system which will make you lose weight. Another horrible method that you shouldn't even think of opting.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation(EMS): This is another method that did gain popularity initially but turned out to be flop. Popularised by infomercials, this method includes getting mild shocks to lose weight. It did not work.
