Eating too much food containing carotene, salt, skipping breakfast and cutting fat from the diet are mistakes that cause yellow and dark skin.

According to Associate Professor, Dr. Nguyen Anh Tuan, Head of the Department of Gastroenterology, Central Military Hospital 108, currently on social networking sites, many methods and diets are shared. However, in many cases, incorrect application causes poor health, fatigue, or yellowing or darkening of the skin.

Below are 4 mistakes when dieting to lose weight that cause yellow and dark skin, according to Associate Professor Tuan.

Eating too many foods containing carotene

Beta carotene is a precursor of vitamin A, yellow, orange or slightly red. This substance has uses in beauty such as being good for vision, anti-oxidation, preventing cancer, increasing resistance, and supporting the weight loss process. Carotene is found in many yellow fruits, such as mango, papaya, carrots... It is also found in egg yolks and green vegetables, okra, eggplant, pumpkin...

Beta carotene is a vitamin A supplement that is very good for health and weight loss, but if you supplement too much of these foods, you can easily develop jaundice.

Skip breakfast to lose weight

A 2017 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition looked at the effects of skipping breakfast on several health issues and found an increase in inflammatory markers. in the blood on days when breakfast is missed.

Skipping breakfast has many health consequences, increasing the risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease..., especially causing jaundice in the body due to lack of necessary vitamins to be absorbed into the body.

Using too much salt

Consuming too much salt can be harmful to the body, especially the skin. Eating too much salt will cause the skin to dry and crack, leading to dullness, discoloration, and lack of color. Furthermore, acne will also begin to appear on the face and other parts of the body.

Cut fat out of your diet

Most people think that fat must be completely cut out to avoid excess fat accumulation, but fat is an important nutrient for the body. The body needs three types of nutrients to provide energy: carbohydrates, proteins and fats. 1 g of fat will provide twice as much energy as 1 g of carbohydrates and protein. Therefore, when fat is not in the diet, the body will not have energy to burn calories.

Besides, many dermatologists have pointed out that diets lacking nutrients and fat can cause people to miss out on essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids. A deficiency of the above nutrients causes pale, dull and dark skin. Consuming healthy fats will help your body absorb nutrients and give you bright, smooth, firm skin.

Is an 'all-meat' diet, eliminating starch and fiber good?
The Carnivore diet, also known as eating all meat, can increase protein and iron, but in the long term it causes the body to lack some vitamins and minerals, increasing the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. 

Losing weight requires abstaining from junk food?
Weight loss encourages eating multiple meals a day, so people do not need to abstain from snacking and should eat healthy, low-calorie foods. 

Weight gain due to incorrect dieting
Many people diet by cutting down on starch too much, but are not persistent and eat more, leading to weight gain again.  20
