Nutritionist Maria Malysheva dispelled popular myths about weight loss. This is reported by URA. RU.
The expert said that special drugs will not help to lose weight, but only harm the body. She explained that fat cells are not in the intestines and therefore there is no point in taking a laxative. Diuretics, even with prolonged use, can lead to disruption of the kidneys and intestines.
Malysheva also criticized starvation. According to her, this practice can lead to the destruction of muscle mass and only cause stress in the body. She added that after giving up the diet, the lost weight will begin to return to the person with renewed vigor. At the same time, the specialist warned that you should not give up products containing fat, since it is involved in the restoration of energy and body tissues.
