Risks associated with cleanse diets
Some cleanse diets do not provide the body required nutrition. In a master cleanse there is deficiency of proteins, vitamins and minerals. So there is muscle wastage in the body. Hence such cleansing methods do more harm than benefits to the body. Some cleansing methods show weight loss within the duration of the detox period but after that when a person begins to consume food normally he gradually gains weight within a week or two. These type of diets cause eating disorders, hunger, emotion and deprivation which finally results in overeating habits after the detox period.
