Top Diet Myths
At some point in our lives each one of us will think about going on a diet. For many women dieting might have even become a part of life, due to the numerous failed attempts to lose weight. While many of us blame our willpower for the failure to achieve our diet goals some conflicting advice about diet can also play an important role when it comes to our failure. Discover the most frequent myths about dieting that might prevent you from reaching your goals.
Despite the massive amount of information that is available when it comes to nutrition and weight loss in general, many people have a hard time incorporating these advices and producing the results they want.
Many times the lack of proper knowledge as well as unintentionally misguided information can cause us to make a series of uninspired choices that can be ineffective or even potentially harmful for us. Learn how to separate the truth from the fiction by taking a closer look to these top myths about dieting and weight loss that you might still believe:
Small, frequent meals help power up your metabolism
What's more, constant snacking can make it harder for our body to send the hunger signal, which on the long term might encourage us to eat more.
Building muscle is a far more effective way to power up our metabolism. Including weight lifting exercise in our routine for three times a week will help us fight fat more effectively than including certain foods in our diets or frequent snacking.
You can eat whatever you want as long as you exercise regularly
Based on these false assumptions it' s extremely easy to justify eating more calorie dense foods thinking they won't have negative effects on your waistline. The science of counting calories tends to be a surprisingly inexact one so make sure that you avoid this dangerous mentality. This however, doesn't mean however that you should give up your occasional indulgences. Just make sure that you keep a more objective perspective on your eating habits.
Low-fat and high protein diets are healthy
Similarly a low cab diet ( high protein diet) can put you at risk of developing serious health problems such as osteoporosis, kidney disease or high cholesterol which in term cause cardiovascular problems. Ultimately a healthy weight loss formula is one that doesn't exclude any of the food groups and that ensures that you have access to all the important nutrients necessary for proper body functioning.
Milk can help you lose weight
What's more many people think that they should consume full fat milk in order to get the maximum amount of benefits, which is another misconception that can sabotage their weight loss efforts. Some research even seems to indicate that the low fat varieties can contain more calcium that the full fat variety.
