      Weight loss myths that make you gain weight!

      There’s a lot of news on weight loss floating round the internet and doing the social media rounds. However, contrary to what they claim, some weight loss advice may actually make you gain weight. Here’s a look at some common ones.

      Exercise alone is enough

      Many people tend to think that exercising alone makes one lose weight. The fact, however is that it’s 80% nutrition and 20% exercise! When people exercise, most overestimate the number of calories that they have lost and go easy on the diet. The result is weight gain!

      Spot reduction

      This is a big fat myth that’s going around! Spot reduction is based on the idea that you can work out to can target a particular part of the body and this will make you lose weight specifically there. This does not practically happen. When you work out on a certain muscle, it’s shape may change a bit but just a little.

      Limiting carbs alone helps weight loss

      When you go on a low-carb diet, you may indeed see quick weight loss. What really happens though is that you are not actually losing fat, you are losing water which the glycogen in the liver holds.

      Lifestyle change vs sudden change

      Many think that a sudden change will make one lose weight. However, things like crash diets usually are just a temporary fix. Most people who go on crash diets later put the weight back on. You need to be committed to making a lifestyle change that is sustainable such as eating a healthy diet and exercising.

      Eating late at night is bad

      Many people offer the advice that one should not eat post 7 p.m. However, if you have not eaten its fine to eat. If your dinner does not exceed the number of calories that you should be eating that day, you will not put on weight.
