Hey there! I'm about to drop some knowledge bombs that will change the way you think about weight loss. Get ready to say goodbye to these five common myths that have been holding you back from achieving your goals. Buckle up, because this is going to blow your mind!
Myth #1 - Calories
Counting calories to lose weight? Stop right there! It's time to break free from this madness. When you restrict calories, you mess with your body's set point and make it harder to maintain or lose weight. Instead, let's focus on something that truly matters: blood sugar. Start paying attention to your blood sugar levels and consider using a continuous glucose monitor. Focus on eating nutrient dense foods that are more satiating and will keep your blood sugars low. By keeping your blood sugar steady and minimizing spikes, you'll avoid insulin resistance and effortlessly shed those Kilo's
Myth #2 - Diet Foods Help With Weightloss
Think those diet foods labeled as "sugar-free" or "low-fat" are your saviors? Think again. Most diet foods are packed with harmful chemicals that can actually hinder your weight loss efforts and mess with your metabolism. Say goodbye to the toxic ingredients and embrace whole, natural foods that don't come with a label. Fruits, veggies, and lean meats should be your go-to choices for nourishing your body and shedding those extra pounds.
“Let’s face the truth. Low-calorie diets have been tried again and again and again. They fail every single time.”
― Dr. Jason Fung
Myth #3 - Prescription Weight-Loss Drugs Are the Answer
If you've been relying on weight-loss drugs to achieve your goals, it's time for a reality check. These drugs might show short-term results on the scale, but they come with a hefty price: muscle loss. Breaking down muscle not only sabotages your metabolism but also ages your appearance. Say no to these drugs and focus on building and preserving muscle through proper nutrition and exercise.
Myth #4 - Cardio Is the Key to Weight Loss
More cardio, more weight loss, right? Wrong! Excessive cardio can actually backfire on your weight loss journey. It not only alters your body's set point but also raises cortisol levels, leading to muscle breakdown and insulin resistance. Instead, consider incorporating high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and strength training into your routine. These exercises build muscle, boost your metabolism, and help you achieve long-term weight loss.
Myth #5 - The Scale Is Your Ultimate Guide
Step away from the scale, my friend. That number staring back at you doesn't define your worth or your health. Instead, focus on more accurate measurements like your blood sugar levels. Invest in a continuous glucose monitor to get a better understanding of your body's response to different foods and lifestyle choices. This will give you the real insights you need to track your progress and make positive changes.
