8 Things You Should Never Do To Lose Weight!
Yes, dieting is hard, and most weight-loss behaviors are unlikely to cause harm since most people can’t keep them up for a long period of time. But other types of diets, from drastic detox diets to extreme calorie reduction, can cause serious health consequences almost immediately.
