Though some crash diets have a bad reputation, the same can't be said for the cottage cheese diet. Cottage cheese is not only delicious, but nutritious.
This diet is designed to be a crash diet that will make you lose weight fast. Most cheeses are very high in fat and calories, but cottage cheese on the other hand does not have as many calories as other cheeses. The basic cottage cheese diet can last anywhere from 3-7 days and has varied results. Because crash diets lower your metabolism, you may actually gain more weight in the long run unless you balance your diet by including other foods and dietary supplements.
During the cottage cheese diets you are not supposed to eat any grains, but it doesn't hurt to add a serving of fruit and/or vegetables along side your lean cheese. Be sure to eat at least 3 times a day, and allow yourself to have at least 2 snacks to avoid fatigue. The cottage cheese diet is only good for a short time, for example, if you need to lose a couple of pounds before a special event. However, if you're on the diet for an extended amount of time, the health hazards include nausea, loss of muscle, fatigue, and slow metabolism.Diet kits for HCG or the HCG Diet, are available as well, and work wonders for increasing your weight loss goals..
