Here are five fitness myths busted
(1)MYTH- You need to fast twice a Month to lose weight!
TRUTH- Unless it is a spiritual fast, fasting to lose weight is a big fat lie. You could fast today and indulge in unhealthy meals tomorrow, so how again is this helping anybody? What you need to do instead is eat 4-5 small healthy meal options throughout the day to keep your metabolism in check.
(2)MYTH- One small unhealthy meal could destroy the whole week’s effort
TRUTH-Listen, You are human and you need to stay sane, and not bingeing to your favorite dessert or favorite foods once in a while will not make you gain all the weight back..
live by the 80-20 rule..80% of the time, eat healthy and do what is right. The other 20%, do whatever the heck you want.it is never that serious .just dont make it a 20-80 rule.
(3) MYTH-You can target where you want to lose fat
DANGER AHEAD SING…..
And all the other signs you can think of
SPOT REDUCTION IS A SCUM!!!
You can not target fat loss. You can not tell your body….
‘ Hey! Here is the thing, we need to lose weight only in this and this place and keep the rest’. Darling, the body does whatever the hell it wants. If it chooses to burn fat on your face first, it is going to do just that. If it wants to burn leg or arm fat first, it is going to do just that. You have no control over that, so all you have to do is just keep going and add strength training into your regime to keep your female features in check. Isolation excercises wont just do the magic. which takes me to my next point
(4)MYTH- ‘ I’ll just do crunches and buy my way to a leaner waist”
TRUTH- crunches, sit-ups, planks, pushups, squats etc are really great but there is more to weightloss and a healthier life than isolation excercises…If you do not do any cardio excercises , the fat is just going to sit there as you build muscle on top of it. So again , to banish the myth, no crunches will give you abs, cardio+clean diet+ (now the common abs excercise)+ enough sleep+ lots of water – processed foods and sugar will give you abs.
(5) MYTH- The more you sweat the more calories you burn
TRUTH- Sweat doesn’t mean you necessarily torched any more calories
than usual . “Sweat is a biological response that cools your skin and regulates internal body temperature,” It could be a result of an overheated room or wearing a sweater during a workout or body overheat…
I personally rarely sweat during my workout and my workouts are just as intense. So if you do not sweat, dont sweat it, *see what I did there?* it doesnt mean you are not working hard
