Starving/fasting/dieting/'slimming' - they're all harmful to your body. - You can buy a new car if you damage it by not giving it enough fuel to keep it running smoothly; you can't get a new body to live in...
If you want to lose weight, do it the SAFE, effective way: avoid salt and salty food. - This is also the FASTEST way to lose excess weight. - Truly!
Obesity is caused by salt sensitivity leading to fluid retention and thus to excess weight. There are various causes of salt sensitivity, the most dangerous of which is the reckless prescribing of certain groups of drugs by doctors who have not familiarised themselves with the side-effects of some of the powerful drugs they prescribe - drugs like steroids, ant-depressants and anti-psychotics and certain pain-killers and other drugs.
Giving up dieting, reducing salt intake and eating plenty of good food including plenty of fruit and (unsalted) vegetables and dairy calcium in milk and/or low fat yoghurt (not cheese, because it's salty) will ensure safe loss of excess weight.vulnerable groups
