Some methods to losing weight have become an enigma for other people that they often resort to several scientifically unproven measures in order to shed off the extra pounds. While other weight loss methods and facts have become revolutionary because they brought results that other methods and facts couldn’t bring in the past, there are simply those other measures that still remain unproven. But for some reason, people still follow those measures as if science has backed them up with concrete results. With that in mind, here are some weight loss myths that people still tend to believe.
Fat-Free is Always the Way to Go
Fat in food isn’t always as bad as it sounds. You actually need some fats in your diet to lose weight. So don’t always go for fat-free foods because manufacturers often put a lot of carbs and sugar in place of the missing fat. When unused, extra carbohydrates and sugar are converted to fat. So it’s still all the same whether it’s fat free or not.
Skipping the Morning Meal
Some people skip eating breakfast because it just adds a lot of unwanted calories into your diet. Those people would rather eat more for lunch or dinner rather than eating a healthy breakfast. That, however, is a wrong notion. You need to be able to fuel your body at the start of the day so that you’re body is revved up to burn calories the entire day.
Nothing at Night
There some people who just simply stop eating after the clock strikes 6pm because the body wouldn’t be able to burn those calories at night. That’s a myth because the body needs to be kept fed the entire day for metabolism to function. Metabolism tends to slow down when your stomach is empty.
Carbs are Bad
Carbohydrates aren’t actually bad depending on what type you consume. Too much sugar carbs is bad because sugar is quick digesting and turns to fat fast. Carbs from fruit and vegetables are natural and are slow digesting. Hence, your body uses these carbs as fuel the entire day.
