It’s probably not a surprise to hear that there is lots of confusion around weight loss and nutrition. Do you know the different types of food and what your body actually needs to keep healthy?

Being overweight and obesity is now called an epidemic in the health community. It leads to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and even an increased risk of various cancers. With this variety of health risks, as well as the improvement in the quality of life that can occur, losing weight and toning up is one of the best things that you can do for yourself.

Unfortunately health and nutrition for most has been reduced to a concept of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ with little else!

No matter what we would like to believe, there just isn’t a magic solution to losing weight and toning up. Your body will burn excess fat when it needs more calories to function through the demands you place on it than the amount of calories that you consume. It’s that simple. So, in order to lose weight, you need to decrease the number of calories that you consume as well as increase the amount of calories that you burn throughout the day.

Some common weight loss, nutrition, and toning myths that most people believe – which aren’t true!

Myth #1: Cutting down on your portion sizes is the optimal way to lose weight.

If you attempt to lose weight by just eating less, you are likely to gain the weight back after your weight loss program. Lasting results and change will come from changing the types and quality of foods you eat, not just the amounts.

Myth #2: Just cut out the fat and you will lose weight.

This approach to weight loss, popular in the 80s, just simply doesn’t work for most people. Even if a food is labelled “fat-free,” it can still be high in calories from sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and hidden carbohydrates. Effective and lasting weight loss comes from being conscious of your total calorie intake, as well as your fat consumption, and frequency of daily exercise.

Myth #3: Cutting calories will cause your body to go into starvation mode and will slow down the weight loss process.

This is just simply not true. Your own body’s basal metabolic rate, or resting energy expenditure, can alter based on a number of factors. However, eating too few calories and an insufficient amount of protein can make you lose valuable lean muscle mass, which will eventually slow down your metabolism for the long term. Preferably, stick to the calorie and protein amounts that are right for your body!

There are a wide range of options for choosing the right weight loss program. Most of them often spend a lot of time explaining what to foods to consume, in what amounts, and at what times or even what combinations. But only a select few of them highlight the importance of regular exercise – not just for losing weight and toning up, but for your general health and well-being!
