Diet Myths That Are Busted!

Welcome to my blog here i will tell you about how you can loose weight today i will tell you about some Diet Myths That Are Busted!

1-Low-fat or no-fat diets is good for you.

The body needs fat for energy, tissue repair and to transport vitamins A, D, E and K around the body.
Lyndel Costain adds: 'As a guideline, women need 70g of fat a day (95g for men) with 30g as the minimum (40g for men).
There's no need to follow a fat-free diet. Cutting down on saturated fats and eating unsaturated fats, found in things like olive oil and avocados, will help.

2-Crash dieting or fasting makes you lose weight.

This may be true in the short term, but ultimately it will not result in weight loss.Losing weight over the long term burns off fat. Crash dieting or fasting not only removes fat but also lean muscle and tissue.
The loss of lean muscle causes a fall in your basal metabolic rate – the amount of calories your body needs on a daily basis.This means your body will need fewer calories than it did previously, making weight gain more likely once you stop dieting.
It's also why exercise is recommended in any weight-loss plan to build muscle and maintain your metabolic rate.
Fasting can also make you feel dizzy or weak so it's much better to try long-term weight loss.

3-A slow metabolism prevents weight loss.

This is a common myth among dieters who are struggling to lose weight.scientific Studies have shown that resting metabolism - the number of calories used by the body at rest – increases as people become fatter.
In other words, the larger you are, the more calories you need to keep your body going and the higher your metabolism.
Weight gain occurs when the number of calories eaten is greater than the number used up by the body.
'Unfortunately, people are becoming increasingly sedentary, burning off less and less calories, and it seems likely this is a crucial factor in the increasing numbers struggling to control their weight.'

4-Low-fat foods help you lose weight.

'Low-fat' or 'fat-free' doesn't necessarily mean low calorie or calorie-free.
Check the calorie content of foods, especially cakes, biscuits, crisps, ice creams and ready meals.
Extra sugars and thickeners are often added to boost flavour and texture, so calorie content may be only a bit less, or similar to standard products.
Foods labelled low-fat should contain no more than 3g fat per 100g.
'Watching the quantity is important,' adds nutritionist Alison Sullivan. 'People tend to have half-fat spread but then use twice as much.
'And things like fruit pastilles may be low in fat, but are high in sugar which turns to fat.
'With low fat foods, look to see where else the calories might come from.'

5-Low-fat milk has less calcium than full-fat milk.

Skimmed and semi-skimmed milk actually have more calcium because the calcium is in the watery part, not the creamy part.
If you're trying to lose weight and cut fat from your diet, skimmed milk is your best bet because it is lower in fat and has 10mg more calcium per 200ml milk than full fat.
'Semi-skimmed is best for maintaining a healthy lifestyle if you're not dieting.
'Full-fat milk is best for children and adults who are underweight.'
