How To Lose Weight

  1. 1. How To Lose Weight – Dieting Myths<br /><br />
  2. 2. How To Lose Weight – Dieting Myths<br />Dieting.  It must be one of the most confusing pursuits in the world today.  So much information.  So much of that information conflicting. <br />So let’s touch on a few of the dieting myths out there that profess to guide you on how to lose weight.<br />
  3. 3. Low Calorie Diets Work A Treat - WRONG<br />Myth number one.  You can’t starve yourself thin.  <br />Any diet that focuses on prolonged or extreme calorie restriction will not help you lose weight permanently<br />Firstly, your body will work out what you are up to and will adjust to burn fewer calories.  <br />Your metabolic rate will drop as eating regularly healthy snacks actually assists in maintaining your metabolic rate.   <br />Even more of an issue is the fact that you will undergo severe hunger pains and mental anguish trying to stick to such a weight loss method.  <br />This type of diet usually ends in binge eating and often your are worse off than when you started.<br />
  4. 4. So Low Fat Diets Must Be The Way To Lose Weight Then…<br />Think again.  Many people actually end up eating more by jumping on the low fat bandwagon.  <br />You tell yourself – its low fat – I can have another one or two.  Actually you are eating more calories than you were and the excess is converted to fat anyway (even if it is low fat food). <br />What's more  - you may be surprised to hear but your body actually needs a number of essential fats, and many essential fats help with weight loss and general health.<br />
  5. 5. Not Low Calorie, Nor Low Fat… Let’s Try Low Carb Diets <br />Sorry.  Carbs are essential.  They provide you with your energy.  <br />A healthy diet should emphasize complex carbs with a limited volume of simple sugars.  <br />Skimp on the carbs and you will lack energy, feel extremely tired and drained, struggle with general activity, not to mention the fact that low carb diets are unhealthy long term.  <br />If you don’t want to be the tired, unhappy girl in the corner who is no fun to be around then skip the low carb option!<br />
  6. 6. The Same Activity Will Guarantee Continued Results <br />I am not really talking about dieting here… but this does refer to weight loss myths.  <br />Many people have the view that if they keep doing activity that has been successful in achieving preliminary weight loss, then they will continue to achieve the same results if they keep the activity constant.    <br />This too is fallacy.  After time your body becomes conditioned to exercise / activity and results will diminish.   <br />You need to modify your training at regular intervals to break through these ‘plateaus’ in your weight loss.  <br />This might mean changing your exercise duration, intensity or even the type of activity that  undertake.Visit for more information on how to lose weight<br />
