12 Things they told about WEIGHT LOSS that are false (Part 1)
Have you ever tried to lose weight on your own and been disappointed when you didn’t see any results after a while? If such was the case, you were probably mistaken. With a large amount of information available on the internet, it can be difficult to distinguish the difference between sound counsel and useless nonsense. As a result, we thought it would be a good idea to compile a list of the most common myths that may be preventing you from reaching your weight-loss objectives. It’s here.
1. Eat Less, Loss more weight (Debunked)
When you don’t eat enough, your body goes into starvation mode,’ which slows down your metabolism since your body/brain is thinking, “Hold on, I’m not getting enough food here, so I’ll slow things down a little.” This means your body burns fewer calories and stores more fat as a source of energy.
Your main focus should be on eating a well-balanced, healthful diet that is suited to your specific needs. Then there’s the matter of sticking with it for the long haul. What matters is what you eat, as well as your capacity to set boundaries for yourself. The amount of food you eat should correspond to your weight-loss goals. Exercising too much, too soon can be counterproductive.
However, before making any major dietary changes, it’s usually a good idea to seek guidance from a nutritionist.
2. Exercising on an empty stomach (Debunked)
This has been going around for quite some time. Is it true that exercising on an empty stomach causes you to burn more fat because your body must rely on carbohydrates for energy?
The short answer is no. Actually, because your body doesn’t want to get rid of its fat reserves, it burns some muscle first. Especially during a strenuous workout. As a result, you’ll be losing muscle while attempting to gain muscle. This isn’t good. Additionally, if your blood sugar levels drop, you may be at risk of developing a hypoglycemic episode.
Small amounts of low-glycemic carbs, such as porridge oats, are a better option in the morning. This type of carbohydrate still offers energy to your body, but it does it gradually, avoiding the unpleasant sugar surges.

3. Rigorous exercising is the only way to lose weight (Debunked)
This is not the case. Making little changes that you can keep to for a long period is the key to weight reduction success.
This entails increasing your everyday physical activity. Adults should engage in at least 150 minutes of physical activity each week, such as fast walking or cycling, and those who are overweight will likely require more.
You must expend more calories than you consume in order to lose weight. This can be accomplished by eating less, moving more, or a combination of the two.

4. Drinking water aids weight loss (Debunked)
Water does not make you lose weight, but it does keep you hydrated and may encourage you to eat fewer snacks. Water is necessary for healthy health and happiness. Thirst might be mistaken for hunger, and if you’re thirsty, you’re more likely to nibble.
