Sleeping Beauty is no longer a fairy tale. With this fantastic history name, a dangerous diet has been baptized which consists of taking medicines to spend most of the time sleeping, -20 hours- to avoid eating and thus lose weight.
The so-called slimming technique has become popular and viral on the Internet thanks to its discussion in forums and blogs for its results, which encourages eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia.
The sleep-based regimen consists of taking sleeping pills and sedatives to stop the temptation of food, which according to specialists can not only create addiction, because it will increasingly have to use higher levels to achieve the desired effect.
By not eating weight can be lost, yes, but it can also lead to side effects such as headaches, visual hallucinations, hearing loss, loss of balance, impaired cognitive ability, mood swings, depression, and the ability to sleep normally. Not to mention, a kind of rebound effect and a huge desire to eat as soon as you wake up.
