Debunking 6 Weight Loss Myths

lose weight-flower-mound

Live Well Nebraska, a publication out of Omaha, recently published an article that featured the weight loss insight and knowledge of personal trainer Brittany Baldwin. In the article, Baldwin sets out to dispel notions and debunk myths commonly associated with efforts to lose weight. We've summarized the 6 myths in the bullet points below. To read more please follow the link at the bottom of this post.

  • Myth #1 - Eating at night makes you fat. Baldwin states that it is the substance and amount you are consuming that is more of a factor than time of consumption.
  • Myth #2 - Protein supplements are necessary to get ripped. Intentional programming and proper nutrition will go much further than protein supplements.
  • Myth #3 - Crunches are the key to flat abs. Though crunches are helpful, targeted cardio and a diet with lean protein and complex carbohydrates will also prove helpful.
  • Myth #4 - More gym time equals more results - Your habits at the gym should reflect your weight loss goals. Excessive workouts can sometimes be harmful, especially if viewed as compensation for a poor diet.
  • Myth #5 - Fats make you fat. A good, balanced diet will include eating fats. Healthier fats should be part of a balanced diet and have been shown helpful in the fight against heart disease.
  • Myth #6 - You can target your weight loss. Weight loss should be a comprehensive approach that takes into consideration the health of the person and the overall state of the body.

Avoid the "Festive Five"

The "Festive Five", a kitchy term that refers to the five pounds (on average) that Americans gain between Thanksgiving and Christmas, presents a challenge for those looking to lose weight or sustain their weight loss. How is one supposed to maintain discipline with so much temptation in the form of pumpkin pie, turkey, stuffing, dressing, and so many other delicious treats? Well, we want to let you know that it is impossible to stave off weight loss, and even lose weight, during the holiday season.

“During the holidays and every day, aim for at least five servings of fruits and vegetables, a maximum two hours of TV time, at least one hour of physical activity and zero sugar-sweetened beverages.”

With that in mind, we want to pass along some information INQUISITR recently shared in an article called "New Festive Five Weight Loss Tips". We've summarized the pointers below. To read the source article in its entirety, please visit the following link: http://www.inquisitr.com/3686830/new-festive-five-weight-loss-tips-include-sleep-food-pusher-advice/

  • Portion Control - Eat the things you love, but do so sparingly with much smaller portions than usual
  • 5-2-1-0 - Make sure to eat five servings of fruits and vegetables, two hours (or less) of TV time, one hour of physical activity, and zero sugar-sweetened beverages
  • Get Enough Sleep - Being fatigued can make it difficult to have the energy needed to go to the gym. It also makes it more difficult to make disciplined decisions.
  • Bring Your Favorite Dish to the Party - This will help you maintain control of your dietary intake
  • And More - Visit INQUISITR to see the rest of the list
