Weight reduction is more complex than adding and eliminating dietary fat.
Myth: Carbohydrate is fattening.
Truth: No! Carbohydrate are not fattening, excess calories from fat are fattening. For example, pasta is not fattening, but the amount of oil used in it is fattening.
Myth: High-protein, low-carbohydrate diets are the best choice if you want to lose weight.
Truth: The type of calories eaten has less importance. Your best diet is to eat smaller portions at dinner and compensate calorie of the day.
Myth: If you eat fat, you will get fat.
Truth: Some people eat large portions of fat-free foods thinking that fat free means calorie free. Bad idea! Excess calories will be stored as fat. So if you eat excess calories you will get fat, not because of fat-gram budget.
Myth: The more you exercise, the more weight you’ll lose.
Truth: The more you exercise, the hungrier you get and the more you eat. After a hard workout, your body is hungry for reward.
