Contrary to popular belief, weight loss can be a cakewalk if you approach it in the correct manner. Simply hearing and reading content online – which is mostly half baked information that is not corroborated by scientific evidence – will not do you any good. There is plenty of misinformation doing the rounds on the internet, from crash diets that can be extremely harmful to one’s health to magic pills that promise a miracle.
To sift through all this information and find credible information can be a cumbersome task (who has the time for it, really!). Thus, to make your weight loss journey a little easier, here is a list of the top myths about weight loss. By the time you finish reading this article, you will be grateful for getting exposed to such MIS-information.
Myth 9 – Exercise helps improve poor metabolism
- Fact – People used to go to the doctor’s office and complain that their metabolism was not right, there never was clear evidence that is actually wasn’t until recently. Weight loss and physical activity do improve the digestive system of the body. The NASA best rest studies : Within a couple of days of non-activity, the metabolism becomes inflexible. You start moving again, and it does start to change. Your metabolism may not ever go back to “normal” but the evidence indicates that it can indeed pick up again by moving your body everyday.
- Exercise is truly important for maintaining proper weight, and people who are not physically active are more likely to gain weight. We think it is partly because with the extra calories burned from physical activity, you have a bit more flexibility in food intake. Also, you’re not so much relying on rigid changes in eating habits; “it’s makes it more tolerable”.
Myth 10 – If you eat well planned meal and exercise consistently, you will never gain weight.
- Fact – You need to be willing to make lifestyle changes and dietary adjustments as you age, change, and grow. The fact is, your metabolism slows down as you age. As a result, you often have to either eat less or exercise more to avoid gaining weight. The biggest change usually occurs around the age of 40. Your metabolism will continue to slow down more gradually over the years, so always sick to your food and well disciplined exercise plan and never lose self control.
- When it comes to diet and exercise, the only thing that you can really be certain of is that there will be weight loss with every new day. You will be better prepared to navigate the never ending supply of conflicting weight loss advice.
