Fad diet is not suitable for people who exercise rigorously. If you exercise, you need to eat a lot of food that are high in protein and carbohydrate so that the energy level can be replenished.

The pancreas create the insulin which is used to carry the glucose to different areas in the body. The more sugar you eat, the more insulin will be created by the pancreas. The insulin surge will cause an overwhelming amount of sugar to be into the blood system. As a result, the sugar and insulin level will fall below normal so that you feel hungry. When you feel hungry, you will crave for more food. Therefore, eating a lot of sugary food will increase your weight gain.
