Everyone has a theory, but what’s the reality?
Myth: All Carbohydrates are Bad for Weight Loss: Fact: Not all carbs are bad – there are refined carbs but there’s also complex carbs that supply a great deal of nutrients and should not be avoided. You can go low carb, give up refined and processed carbs like white bread, chocolates, candies, pretzels, refined flour, junk and fast food. Consume more of whole grains, beans and brown rice.
Myth: Avoid Eggs Because They Have Bad Cholesterol That Make Fat Burning Difficult:
FACT – There’s good fat content in eggs, but it’s all healthy fats. Apart from healthy fats, the egg yolk also has fat-soluble nutrients like vitamins A, D, and E, and even antioxidants like lutein and zeaxanthin. Never believe those who say avoid eggs to lose weight due to the cholesterol factor.
Myth – Obesity runs in your family, so you may not lose weight:
FACT – Genes only have a small part to play in being overweight – weight loss depends mainly on your workout and diet. While genes do have a say in obesity, an individual can totally overturn its affect by following a healthy diet, working out regularly, and making positive lifestyle changes.
