Top 10 myths about weight loss

MYTH 1: STAIN REDUCTION WORKS

It is widely believed that if you focus your exercise and weight training on specific areas of your body, you will be able to reduce the amount of fat in that specific area or region. In reality, there is no such thing as spot reduction and instead, as you begin to exercise, you will begin to lose weight evenly throughout your body. However, another common myth is that higher reps will burn more fat when in fact fewer reps with heavier weight will burn more fat in less time than higher reps with lighter weight. weight.

MYTH 2: DRINKING COLD BEVERAGES REDUCES FAT

This is a very common myth that is actually believable if you consider the reasoning behind it. The myth goes on to state that because his body needs to heat the water, it automatically starts burning calories every time he drinks cold water. This calorie-burning frenzy continues until your body has adjusted the temperature of the water to match your normal body heat. While drinking water (at any temperature) is an important part of any weight loss system, don’t count on losing weight by drinking alone. Water helps cleanse your system keeping it healthy and free of toxins, but you can’t burn calories just by drinking it without a healthy diet.

MYTH 3: REMOVING FOOD GROUPS WILL CAUSE FAT LOSS

This myth is a bit confusing, so let’s clear things up. Eliminating (or at least minimizing) certain foods, such as foods that are high in sugar, should be part of your transition to healthy eating. You always want to minimize the amount of high-fat (low-energy) foods whenever possible. However, eliminating entire food groups from your diet and focusing on eating just one type of food is not only very difficult to follow, but to maintain a healthy diet, you need a complete selection of healthy foods from all food groups.

MYTH 4: LOW CALORIE DIETS ARE THE ONLY WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT

Almost every diet out there focuses on reducing your calorie intake and increasing your overall activity level, and with good reason. The problem arises when dieters believe that by drastically reducing their calorie intake they will lose the weight and keep it off. It is important to gradually reduce your calorie intake so that your body’s natural system does not switch to ‘famine’ mode, causing your system to believe that it needs to store food for a potential famine period (this has been part of our system from the beginning of man). You should also be on the lookout for a disruption in your body’s natural metabolic rate, as drastic calorie reductions can slow it down and make it harder to shed those pounds.

MYTH 5: YOU SHOULD TRAIN AT SPECIFIC TIMES

I’ve seen this myth circulated in the weight loss communities many times over the years and while the “best time of day” always seems to change, the basic idea remains the same: you need to exercise at specific times to get the best results. best results. In reality, you really don’t have to exercise early in the morning, late at night, or anything else while you’re exercising. Focus more on maintaining a consistent schedule of activity and less on when you actually do it. For busy moms and business owners, being able to set a specific schedule isn’t always the easiest thing to achieve, so it’s great news that the real facts are that regardless of when you exercise, your body will burn the same amount of calories. for the same workout no matter the time of day.

MYTH 6: YOU MUST TRAIN FOR XX MINUTES BEFORE IT STARTS WORKING

I myself believed in this myth. The idea behind this is that your body needs to “warm up” for a period of time before switching into “fat burning mode”, so anything before xx minutes just doesn’t count. This is complete nonsense! While you should always work to incorporate a warm-up period (as well as a cool-down process) during your workouts, you actually start burning fat the minute you start!

MYTH 7: EAT FAT-BURN FOODS TO LOSE WEIGHT

If you ever actually find a food group or item that causes instant weight loss, please let me know! Realistically, there are no foods that burn fat instantly, however, there are types of foods that can increase your metabolism (which will subsequently help you lose weight).

MYTH 8: HIGH-PROTEIN, LOW-CARB DIETS ARE THE BEST

These diets are often difficult to follow because they severely limit what you are allowed to eat. Also, the reality of the matter is that while you may lose weight quickly at first, your body will stabilize and you will find it difficult to get over the “hump”. Instead, focus on following a healthy eating plan that encompasses foods from all four food groups, ensuring that you not only have more flexibility in your meal choices, but also get the vitamins and minerals your body needs.

MYTH 9: EAT LESS AND BURN MORE

Did you know that there is something called “Sumo Diet”? Sumo wrestlers are believed to eat just before retiring for the day and rarely eat throughout the day as a way to pack on the pounds. The reason for this is not that eating after 7 p.m. because when you eat less, your body ends up storing more fat, while lowering your metabolic rate. It’s important to eat regularly throughout the day, preferably 6-8 times (three healthy meals and snacks every two hours will keep you satisfied and keep your body in constant fat-burning mode).

MYTH 10: REMOVE ALL FATS FROM YOUR DIET

This myth is not only extremely difficult to do, it can actually harm your system. We all need fat in our diet to survive and to fuel our muscles and encourage growth.

While cutting back on fat will help you lose weight, it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to cut it down completely.
