Busted! Don’t Believe These Weight Loss Myths!
Losing weight can be tough as the process is different for everyone. Sometimes, it may also feel like you’re doing everything you’re supposed to but still aren’t seeing results. If this has been the case for you, consider reviewing what you’ve been doing to lose weight. There are several myths surrounding the fitness industry, and it’s quite possible that you may be slowing your progress by following the wrong steps or misinformation about weight loss.
With so many falsehoods about weight loss today, it’s challenging to determine what works and what doesn’t. Following misleading weight loss techniques, diets, and fitness programs can either give you no results or severely alter your health. To help you steer clear of the misconceptions, Elite Fitness Team Inc. has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about weight loss.
Myth 1: You need to eat less to lose weight
This myth exists because women who competed in bodybuilding or fitness did that back in the day. But, this is not necessary to lose weight. You simply need to eat differently to achieve your weight loss goals. Today, our female clients (who are mostly moms) start their weight loss journey consuming 1500 to 2000 calories and still manage to lose weight.
Myth 2: You need to eliminate carbs or do Keto
Carbs are not the enemy. Carbs are very important when it comes to fueling your body for intense work. People think that eliminating carbs will help in weight loss. But, the real truth is that you need to reduce your calories which makes you lose weight. My clients have carbs like bread, pasta, etc., and are still losing weight. They just have these foods in moderation.
Myth 3: You need to do a lot of cardio or exercise to lose weight
A lot of people believe this myth because it is easier to do than controlling calories. If you focus on controlling your calorie intake 80% to 90% of the time, you will hit your goals much sooner. Exercise only preserves and builds muscle tissue. But being in a caloric deficit is what is going to put your body in a state to lose body fat. At Elite Fitness Team Inc., we focus more on the hard part (diet) to get the best results possible.
