3 Myths about Weight loss & the Truth
I'll admit, I used to believe these! Odds are, you have too...I plan to expose other myths in the future but for now here are 3!
1. MYTH: All you need to do is be in a caloric deficit to lose weight.
TRUTH: On the surface that seems true however there are major culprits to weight loss that can stunt progress regardless of the caloric deficit. Stress & lack of sleep being 2 along with hormonal imbalances, & gut health issues.
2.MYTH: Carbohydrates (carbs) make you fat.
TRUTH: Your portions are your poison meaning the over consumption of them is the real culprit. Carbohydrates are an essential macronutrient that our body uses for energy. The issue is most people don't use that energy, so it is stored.
3. MYTH: Breakfast is required to lose weight
TRUTH: Studies do show that breakfast eaters weight less than breakfast skippers & that eating an adequate amount of protein withing an hour of waking boosts metabolism however than is no evidence that shows breakfast is required.
Bottom line is when we focus on wellness, in most cases, the weight will come off. An adequate amount of water, balanced nutrition, caloric deficit, plenty of sleep and stress management, movement....and don't forget laughter!
If you want all the guess work removed with your nutrition, take a look at these!
