Weight Loss Myths Busted

Weight Loss Myths Busted

The number of myths about weight loss is astounding. If you want to lose weight and stay thin and fit, then you need to realize the truth about weight loss.

Let’s take a minute to dispel some of these weight loss myths that are still prevalent in the fitness industry, but which cause way more problems than they solve.

Myth #1: You need to count calories for weight loss

Successful weight loss requires counting calories daily and creating a deficit. To lose weight, simply exercise and burn more calories than what you eat.

The truth

Sorry, but the age-old ‘myth’ of eating less and exercising more doesn’t work in the 21st century. Weight loss is very difficult when you are nutritionally starved.

Think of it this way – which is ‘better’… 500 calories of healthy grass-fed beef steak and spinach or 500 calories of ice cream? I think you know the answer… Calorie counting alone will never be sufficient.

 Myth #2: Do more cardio for weight loss

You need to do lots and lots of fat burning cardio to stimulate your metabolism to burn fat.

The truth

Low-intensity cardio workouts are POOR metabolic stimulators. They actually work in the opposite way and slow down your metabolism by encouraging your body to give up the fat-burning muscle it requires for peak metabolic efficiency.

Strength training is WAY better for you and will boost your body’s fat-burning activity.

Myth #3: Exercise more for weight loss

You need to exercise 6 times a week and sometimes twice a day if you want to see any serious changes in your body.

The truth

Someone once said this about gym training – “You can train long or you can train hard but you can’t do both.”

It’s true! Exercising is good, but you want to make sure you are also exercising ‘smart’. You have to focus on quality instead of quantity. Plus, it saves time as well!

Myth #4: To lose weight you need to eat a LOT of health foods.

The truth

There are lots of foods out there that are labeled as health foods but in actual fact, they are nutritionally deficient.

Eating them is like eating ’empty calories’. A good example is the type of ‘salads’ served in a restaurant.

Their chicken salad might not have good nutrition and it may be drenched in unhealthy oil or a sugar-laden dressing. Those salads will actually make you fat. They’re almost equivalent to eating a cheeseburger.

Myth #5: Effective fat loss strategies require you to cut down on your fat intake.

The truth

Fats are NOT your enemy. It is eating unhealthy fats that cause you to put on weight.

But if you eat the right kind of fats (like a nice, healthy avocado), I guarantee that you will lose weight much faster.

These are just some of the myths about weight loss that are still widely believed by people today yet are NOT true and should be recognized as such if you want to get ahead in your own weight loss efforts.

There are dozens more that you might not know, and not knowing them is detrimental to your health and your weight loss future.

Overcoming These Weight Loss Myths
