12 Things they told about WEIGHT LOSS that are false (Part 2)
We continue with a compilation of common myths from PART 1 about WEIGHT LOSS that is been floated all over the place that is preventing you from reaching your weight-loss objectives. It’s here.
5. Getting rid of all your snacks at once (Debunked)
If you’re planning to start a diet, there are some items that you may want to cut out of your diet entirely in the long term like chocolates. That doesn’t mean you have to chop them all out at the same time. That’s a difficult task, and if you fail, you’re in for an epic comeback.
Now is the time to keep in mind that you’re in this for the long haul. This is more of a lifestyle shift than a diet. First, try to eliminate the most difficult foods from your menu. Yes, the one with a particular place in your heart, refrigerator, and stomach. It will be a lot simpler for me to keep to a change if it is gradual but constant.
You’re setting yourself up for failure if you decide to stop eating sugary foods all at once.
6. Dieting around a single food (Debunked)
Many fad or trendy diets place a heavy emphasis on just one or two “miracle” foods. Anyone for the avocado diet? The truth is that none of these diets works, and there’s an excellent reason for that.
To begin with, no one in their right mind would ever be able to make a single food 90 per cent of their diet for weeks at a time (let alone months). Second, no single food can provide the body with the massive amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, fibre, and other nutrients it needs to stay healthy. That’s why healthy, tried-and-true diets (like the Mediterranean diet) always incorporate a wide range of foods.

7. Foods that are healthy are very expensive (Debunked)
It may appear that healthier foods are more costly than their less healthy counterparts. However, if you attempt substituting better items for unhealthy ones, you’ll probably discover that your meals end up costing less.
Choosing cheaper cuts of meat and blending them with cheaper alternatives like beans, pulses, and frozen vegetables, for example, will help it last longer in casseroles or stir-fries.

8. Carbs cause you to gain weight (Debunked)
Carbohydrates, when consumed in the proper amounts and as part of a balanced diet, will not cause weight gain on their own (that is, without the addition of butter, creamy sauces, and other fats).
When trying to reduce weight, eat whole grain and wholemeal carbs like brown rice and wholemeal bread, as well as potatoes with the skins on, and avoid frying starchy items.
