There are many effective weight loss methods,however,there are many dieting misunderstanding, let's together to have a look.
Myth: If I exercise, I can eat anything I want.Fact: Exercise without a balanced diet will not result in weight loss.To lose weight, you must create a calorie deficit. Exercise does burn calories, but usually, this alone is not enough for weight loss. For example, a brownie requires almost 2 hours of walking to burn off.
Tip: Eat healthy most of the time and splurge a little at one or two meals a week.
Myth: Carbohydrates make people fat and should be completely avoided.Fact: Carbohydrates do not create weight problems when eaten in moderation.Carbohydrates make up the majority of our foods (fruit, starches, grains, and dairy); provide many vitamins, minerals and fiber; and are what provide our bodies with energy. Carbohydrates topped with high fat foods like butter, cheese, and sour cream can cause weight issues. Eliminating carbohydrates from your diet can lead to fatigue, moodiness, and hunger.
Tip: If you enjoy topping your carbohydrates with high fat items, slowly reduce the portion that you use or switch to a lower fat version.
Myth: I will just eat salad at every meal; those are low calorie and will surely make me lose weight.Fact: Some salads can have just as many, or more, calories as regular meals.While salads provide a great way to eat more vegetables, certain "salad items" can make your healthy meal a high calorie one. Some of these items include cheese, croutons, seeds, and dressing. Most dressings are oil based. Just a teaspoon of oil is equal to 45 calories and 5g of fat.
Tip: Try low fat cottage cheese, lemon, or salsa on your salad for a low calorie dressing.
