When it comes to weight loss there are lots of nutrition hints and tips out there, but which ones should you believe and follow?
Here are 3 weight loss lies you shouldn’t follow:
1. Carbs make me fat.
Carbs aren’t all bad. Fizzy drinks is a bad carbohydrate, while broccoli is a good. To lose weight you will need to focus on the good carbs instead of focusing on overall carb intake. Enjoy vegetables, fruits, and high-fiber whole grains.
2. Cutting calories = weight loss.
This isn’t exactly true. The total number of calories do matter, but the quality of those calories is just as important. Eating a 500-calorie cheeseburger with a 200-calorie fizzy drink is a the complete opposite to eating the same number of calories in a handful of almonds, a piece of fruit, and some wild salmon.
3. Skip breakfast to save calories.
Wrong! Skipping breakfast will only slowdown your weight-loss efforts. People who eat breakfast daily weigh less; those who don’t eat breakfast weigh more. It’s really that simple. A high-nutrient breakfast gets your body off to a good calorie-burning start.
