So many myths in and around the gym…
…so many people not getting the results they desire.
Here are 6 myths that are seriously killing your results from the gym and your fat loss.
#1 Eating carbs after 7pm will make you gain weight (fat)
Fact – it’s the overconsumption of calories that causes weight gain. It doesn’t matter one bit when you consume your carbs…BUT…you have to earn them
#2 Eating eggs will raise cholesterol.
Fact – if you eat foods that contain cholesterol, your body produces less cholesterol, if you don’t, it ramps up its own production.
^^It’s very clever like that
#3 Eating too much protein can put a strain on your kidneys.
Fact – Rubbish. Show me one “real” study that proves it
#4 Cardio is best for fat loss and toning (girls)
Fact – aside from a clean diet, weight/resistance training is the best fat burner. Cardio has it’s place….just.
#5 You can get all the vitamins and minerals we need from our food.
Fact – 100 years ago, possibly, but with modern day farming and mass production, plus pesticides and other chemicals and pollutants, we are just not getting the quality nutrition we need.
#6 A low fat diet will help you lose body fat
Fact – Good fats make you thin. Essential fat like fish oil and other fats such as coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, avocado, nuts and seeds all play an important role in your health and quest for fat loss.
Basic stuff to some of you for sure, but for others….it’s not the case.
If you find yourself believing any of these, then have a rethink as it could be sabotaging your efforts in the gym.
