Slowed metabolism will bring back all the lost weight as you start eating normally. Muscle atrophy: Starvation diets make you loose muscles and all the weight that you lose is only water weight. Losing muscles is the biggest loss of body. Because muscles give tone to the body. Once there is muscle atrophy, your body will look saggy. Even if you look leaner, without toning the body, you will look older. This is one of the major side effects of doing self dieting. Loss of menstrual cycle: If women go on starvation diet, it may result in the loss of menstrual cycle. hair Loss, osteoporosis and other major physical problems. Lack of awareness: It is so important to understand the difference between good and bad carbohydrates. Less carbohydrates lead to less energy and weakness.
