In this modern world no one wishes to be looking fat, People are ready to face all the challenges to become lean, some are taking advantage over this and started earning money out of this by giving ideas which may even cause hazard than good.
1. If I sharply reduce my calories, I will lose weight faster
When you try to cut your calories severely, your metabolism gets slow rather than speeding up by making it more difficult to lose weight. Avoid starving yourself.
Exercising on an Empty Stomach will not help you lose weight
2. You have to work out two hours a day, every day at a high intensity to lose weight
Not a true fact. Studies show that 30-60 minutes of moderate exercises like brisk walking or jogging is far enough to stay fit with a healthy intake of food.
3. You Can Burn More Fat Exercising on an Empty Stomach
Blood glucose will be low on an empty stomach when fasting, but you need glucose when you exercise.
If you fail to eat before a workout session; you risk muscle protein being converted to glucose to maintain a critical level of blood glucose.
Hence it is best to have some toast or energy bar or fruit juice or sports drink to give your blood glucose a little boost before you work out thereby preventing the use of muscle for energy.
4. If I drastically cut calories, I’ll lose weight faster
This is just the same as we discussed in first point. When you calorie intake is low, your body moves into Starvation mode through which your metabolism will actually slow down and you may not lose weight.
Drinking Water will not help you to lose weight
5. Drinking lot of water helps to lose weight.
Drinking water is good for health, but it does not have any connection with weight loss.
6. The stricter the diet, the better it will work.
When you are so strict in your diet by completely eliminating entire food groups or eating just one food, you’ll get tired of the allowed food and finally you will quit everything.
7. Don’t eat between meals.
Long gap between meals will make your metabolism go wrong, thereby getting too hungry which makes you overeat at your next meal.
8. Skipping meals will help me lose weight
Skipping meals will actually make you gain weight, your metabolism plummets and you get overly-hungry when go too long without eating. Because of this you may not be reaching your daily calorie requirements which will backfire on you.
