Starting a diet requires willpower and patience, but often rather than embarking on a path that leads us to slow but healthy weight loss, we resort to quick fixes that are harmful to our bodies and our health. In fact, an overly restrictive and unbalanced diet does not make us lose weight, but rather makes us lose weight, and the two things, although often used synonymously, are very different.
As for seasoning fats, the most widely used in the Mediterranean basin turns out to be to be olive oil; a condiment of vegetable origin containing fats of superior quality and less harmful than condiments of animal origin.

Weight loss, in fact, is often nothing more than a rapid loss of pounds that are subtracted from muscle (lean mass) and in addition to being detrimental to the body, it does not allow you to maintain lasting results over time, causing the so-called yo-yo effect. What, instead, should be induced in our organism is slimming, that is, the loss of fat mass, which will turn out to be a longer path but can be maintained over time. Another shortcoming of “do-it-yourself diets,” being often monotonous and unbalanced, is that they are poor in certain nutrients that are essential for the functioning of our bodies; in addition, they can cause feelings of fatigue, headaches, muscle cramps, constipation, and sleep disturbances.

Therefore, when deciding to embark on a weight-loss journey, it is a good idea to consult a professional (dietician, dietitian or nutritional biologist), so as to set up a dietary regimen appropriate, safe and based on the individual’s eating and lifestyle habits.
