Just because a diet makes you lose weight does not mean it’s making your body happier. In fact, the vast majority of fad diets leave something to be desired in terms of nutrition.

A high-protein paleo diet, for example, can leave you constipated with its lack of fiber from grains. And low-carb diets, while they may produce quick weight loss, can also result in dizziness, fatigue and a need for vitamin supplements due to their ban on certain fruits and sugars.

Overall, it’s healthier to invest in small, sustainable life changes instead of short-term diet overhauls. Watch the above video from AsapScience to learn more.
