Diet for the sake of losing excess weight is not completely good for your health. 

A low-carb diet can leave you fatigued as carbohydrates are needed for energy and normal functioning, according to a study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.

35% of ‘normal dieters’ tend to become pathological dieters or suffer from eating disorders, according to the American National Eating Disorders Association's study.

You might also end up not getting essential vitamins, minerals, etc. 

Added to that, it causes muscle loss, which results in loss of strength and endurance, according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. 

It can also weaken the hair follicles and also lead to hair fall, as per a study published by the Dermatology Practical and Conceptual.
