Do you use a diet, but still do not lose weight? Meet 5 myths about weight loss
1. Less is more
If you think you’ll lose weight faster by eating less meals during the day, then you’re wrong. To lose weight healthy, you do not have to give up any of the 5 meals. However, try to make the portions eaten smaller.
2. A hunger strike
This is an absolute myth. Fasting is not a way to lose weight. It usually makes us feel drowsy and distracted. A few days of torturing a draconian diet often causes that we lose only muscle mass, which is responsible for burning calories. As a consequence, you are constantly starving and tired, and the effects of diet are not spectacular at all.
3. Avoiding fats helps you lose weight faster
That’s true, but not really. Fats are nutrients that can not be missing in our diet, because they are a source of energy, a carrier of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) or the building blocks of cell membranes and hormones. Their excess is dangerous, which can lead to overweight. You also need to pay attention to what fats we choose. Well, if you give up saturated fat, the main source of which are products of animal origin, but absolutely do not give up on those unsaturated – mainly derived from plant sources. Unsaturated fats, especially polyunsaturated fatty acids, are very important in our diet. For example, the ALA and LA acids from the omega family are essential for the proper development and functioning of the body. We find them, among others in rapeseed oil. Do not forget that rapeseed oil is a rich source of fat soluble vitamins E and K. They influence our health (vitamin E helps protect DNA and K contributes to blood clotting). On a diet you can easily add rapeseed oil to your favorite lettuces, which is vegetable fat.
4. The resignation from breakfast is a way to fit a figure
No, no, and no more! Breakfast is a basic meal during the day. People who eat them are usually more focused and to a lesser extent, because they do not absorb sweets and unhealthy snacks.
5. The exercises alone are enough
Unfortunately, it is also a myth. Even if you spend hours in the gym, and after returning you allow yourself a large amount of junk food or sweets, you may find that your exercises will not do anything. A balanced diet is the basis (of course in combination with physical activity).
