      Top weight loss myths busted

      Weight loss is a constant issue that millions of people are battling. The internet is floating with advice and miracle potions and diets that claim to help you lose weight. Here’s a look at some of the common weight loss myths and an analysis of how far they are true.

      Carbs make you fat

      Partially true. Not all carbs are made equal. Eating a low carb diet can make you lose weight.  When you eat whole foods that are high in carbs, this is good for you. However, refined carbs like refined grains and sugar are the culprits that lead to weight gain.

      Supplements are great at weight loss

      The weight loss supplement market is huge and worth millions of dollars. Though they have many takers who believe that this can be a great shortcut to weight loss, the actual weight loss achieved is negligible. It has more of a placebo effect feel researchers.

      Obesity is about will power

      One can’t really dismiss obesity as a matter of will power. There are many contributory factors such as genetics, hormonal imbalances, depression, medical conditions and so on.

      All calories are equal

      False. This is a very huge misconception. Calories from different sources act differently. A protein calorie for instance is definitely not the same as a fat or carb calorie. When you replace carbs and fat with protein, this can pump up your metabolism and reduce appetite. Besides this, when your intake of calories is from whole foods such as fruit, this tends to be more filling than calories from refined carbs.

      Weight loss diets are effective

      This is what the thriving industry would have us believe. However, following weight loss diets produce results temporarily but studies reveal that in the long run, it does not work. 85% of dieters tend to gain back the weight lost within just a year!
