Obesity has become one of the most concerning health issue in the world. Obesity is when a person’s Body Mass Index (BMI) is at least 20% higher than it should be. BMI is used to calculate the percentage of body fat using the measurement of your height and weight.

How does a person become obese? It’s when one consumes too many calories than they should be. To maintain a weight, a man needs to consume 2,500kcal a day while a woman needs to consume 2,000kcal a day. If you are eating more than the calories needed, that’s when you start to pack those pounds.

So what are some healthy and safe diets that can help you kickstart your journey to losing the weight and maintaining them in the long run? Here are a few diet plans that you can follow that are safe.

1. The Boiled Egg Diet

That’s right. The name of the diet says it all. This diet consists of lots and lots of eggs in your meals. The boiled egg diet is a way to substitute your usual protein sources with lean protein such as the egg itself, chicken and fish. This diet is notably repetitive and usually lasts for 2 weeks. Some may question whether it is fine to eat so many eggs as it is high in cholesterol. It is 100% safe to consume so many eggs and cholesterol is nothing to be worried about because the cholesterol in the eggs is actually good cholesterols.

This diet basically eliminates all uses and consumption of oil, butter, and fats. It is also very low in carbs and sugar. The only sugar you consume will be natural sugar from fruits. Even so, the fruits you can eat with this diet are citrus fruits- grapefruit, orange.

Some people have claimed to have lost up to 12kg in two weeks with this diet.

2. Cabbage Soup Diet

If you have an event coming up in a week and you need a quick diet to fit in that dress or pants you bought one size smaller to motivate yourself to lose some weight, the cabbage soup diet might be the solution.
This diet makes you lose up to 4-5kg in just 7 days! However, cabbage is all you will be eating for the whole 7 days. You can, however, add two other foods such as milk, fruits, and vegetables. No meat!

To start this diet, you will need to prepare this cabbage soup in a big batch as this will be your only meal for the entire day. There’s no rule to how much of the soup you can eat in a day. Whenever you are feeling hungry, just get yourself a bowl of the cabbage soup. You can have as many meals as you want, that being said, all your meals are only the cabbage soup.

Things you should avoid during the cabbage soup diet:
-Bananas
-Corn
-Beans
-Peas

5. Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting may not be unfamiliar to us because it is somewhat practiced by fellow Muslims during the Ramadhan month. So how does this intermittent fasting work?

It is an eating pattern that restricts you from eating for a certain period of time and another amount of time, you’ll be allowed to eat.

There are a few ways of intermittent fasting:
-16/8: The 24 hour of your day is split to 16 hours of fasting and 8 hours of eating. You are required to skip your breakfast and your eating period will last for 8 hours.
– Eat, Stop, Eat: This requires you to fast for 24 hours that you can do once or twice a week. For example, you stop eating breakfast from today until breakfast tomorrow.
-5:2 diet: In a week, you consume only a 500-600 calorie diet, not to be practiced two consecutive days, but eat normally the other 5 days of the week.

The 16/8 method is the easiest and most sustainable method because you still get to eat every day without limiting your calorie intake and there’s no restriction on what you can or cannot eat.

6. Juice Fasting

You have seen plenty of juice bars or stores that specifically sell juices popping in your neighborhood over the recent years. Juice fasting has become more and more popular and most people are catching up to this trend. With juice fasting, this diet is just all about juice and liquid drinks.

Some people have done juice cleansing for the longest time. This is a method to detox your body from all the unhealthy food you have been consuming and also a way to absorb an adequate amount of nutrients to your body.

People who take up this juicing diet has claimed to lose up to 50kg in just 60 days! The juice cleanse does not only help you lose weight, it helps boost your body’s immune system and remove toxins from your body. As you may have guessed it, yes, this diet is solely and heavily relying on just juices as your meals.

Of course, with such a drastic change to your normal daily diet, this diet comes with consequences as well. Some of the side effects of juice fasting are:
-fatigue
-dizziness
-nausea
-constipation
-diarrhea

However, after adapting to this diet for a certain amount of time, your body will get used to it and these symptoms will slowly vanish.
