While the dieter’s body is taking the toll from the harmful effects of dieting, his/her mind and body parts are reacting as well. However, what about his/her family? What about his/her co-workers? Due to the lack of nutrients and essentials, the body starts deteriorating. Just as I stated above, the lack of insulin makes it hard for carbohydrates to be converted into energy. That lack of energy causes the metabolic rate to decrease. As a result, the oxygen levels then fluctuate. When oxygen is consumed in greater amounts than normal, just to work properly, the heart is not used to the new amount of oxygen that it has to intake and has to make accommodations (Daee, Robinson, Lawson, Turpin, Gregory, Tobias 3). Then, with the new stress that …show more content…
There are many aspects that must be broken to fulfill the requirements of the diet. As I stated earlier, the dieter has to learn a new and different eating style, however, is the way the people behind the diets are teaching the dieters the correct way or style?

Adults and even adolescents start lashing out in violent outbreaks when anybody gets in their way (Daee, Robinson, Lawson, Turpin, Gregory, Tobias ). There is that chance that the dieter can lash out in school, public, work, or even sporting events. Those violent outbreaks are hard to break when the dieter’s mind is on that one goal. Adolescents and adults get to the point in which they do not want to be around people because they are scared somebody is going to try to stop them from going on with their
