To lose weight, there is only one rule: burn more than you consume. This means that you have to burn more and consume less in less time to lose weight fast. But is doing that healthy?
There are many methods used to lose weight quickly: fasting, high protein diets, diets based on a single food, and those that involve a very low-calorie consumption.
The most common consequences are dehydration, nausea, fatigue, liver and kidney overload, muscle damage, weak bones, and eating disorders.

For example, the high protein diet consists of abandoning carbohydrates (important energy) and only eating foods with little fat and a high percentage of protein. This can lead to dehydration and liver and kidney overload.
Another example: diets based on only one food will have as an obvious consequence a lack of nutrients; This will affect the bones, weakening them. It can also lead you to lose muscle mass instead of fat, leading to injuries for those who play sports.
