Beware! If you search around on the Internet for information on weight loss, you will find lots of misinformation and myths. In this article, I will look at some common myths that you may have read about, and may believe. I hope that after reading this article you will start to think about what to believe, and what not to believe, regarding weight loss.
So, lets start:
Myth 1: Fad diets work
Let me just stop there. Repeat after me – FAD DIETS DON’T WORK. In the best case, these diets allow you to lose weight, but only in the short term. In the worst cases, you have to eat things you don’t even like, without seeing any results (or even gaining weight).
Myth 2: There exists a miracle pill you can use to lose weight
The problem with diet and weight loss pills is that you are adding foreign chemicals and substances into your body. These substances can be very bad for, even worse than being overweight. There has been numerous instances of these types of pills leading to serious health problems.
Myth 3: It doesn’t matter who you are, you can look like a supermodel
Everyone is unique. Some people have longer legs, some people have shorter legs. Some people are built more stocky, some people are built more slender. The hard truth is that depending on your body shape, you may never be able to look like a supermodel. But, you can enhance and make the most of your own body build.
