Weight Loss Myths

Weight Loss Myths

You don’t need to trust everything other people say to you about weight loss. There are a lot of myths regarding what you should be eating and what not if you need to lose weight. While some say you need to eat carbohydrates, and some might tell you to avoid them altogether. This article will reveal the truth behind such myths.

1.    The only way to lose weight is by cutting out all carbohydrates.

TRUTH: Carbohydrates are the body's foremost supply of energy, particularly for a hardworking and energetic body. Entirely neglecting carbohydrates will leave you exhausted, lethargic and hold back your performance. Experts recommend being aware of your carbohydrates consumption rather than ignoring them all in all. "The ideal time to gulp down carbohydrates is at breakfast and after a workout," they say. Whole wheat toast, two eggs, and salsa is a good example of a stimulating go-to breakfast.

2.    Sports Drinks are better than Water.

TRUTH: Sports drink companies challenge the significance of water to market “improved” performance drinks at your expenditure. "Studies have shown that water is one of the ideal tools for weight loss, performing as an immense appetite suppressant. When we sense we’re hungry, we’re in fact just thirsty”. Experts also note, “Drinking a good quantity of water could lessen your risk of a heart attack and other heart diseases. If you’re drained-out and feeling lethargic, lack of water could be the reason behind it”. Being dried out can weaken your energy levels, even mild dehydration of as slight as one to two percent of your body weight.

3.    The more you sweat, the more fat you lose

TRUTH: Sweat has nothing to do with the amount of fat you lose; it's your body's manner of getting rid of heat. Fat is oxidized within your body, and it is not going to vaporize because you're sweating. Don't believe that the amounts you sweat as a good sign as to a number of calories you've burned. What matters is how long and how powerfully you're working out. Any weight loss that you experience straight away after a workout is only water weight, and you'll gain it right back as soon as you rehydrate yourself. So don't be anxious about how sweaty you get. If you go for a half an hour run and you haven't sweated a drop, you still burned almost 300 calories.

So, beware the next time you hear claims like these and be sure to correct them and impart the knowledge you have freshly gained. Now you know what is wrong with your diet and this will help you to include all the right elements in your diet and workout.
