I've got a great post lined up for you today.....
Why do squirrels swim on their back?
So they don't get their nuts wet :0)
OK, OK bad joke I know.....
Moving swiftly on
Do you know what?
Some people believe crazy things, even more so in the health & fitness industry
so I want you to do me a favour OK....
DON'T fall for these stoopid myths.....
Yes I said stoopid!!
Right let's get down to bidniz
1. "Doing weights will bulk me up."
Truth: Muscle is denser than fat and thus takes up less room, so two people who weigh the same can look much different if one has a higher ratio of lean muscle mass to fat.
Also, the ONLY way to ever bulk up, is to eat more calories than you burn off...
This makes you gain weight mostly as FAT!
2. "I exercise every day, so I can eat whatever I want."
Truth: You cannot out-exercise a bad diet, but you CAN out-eat your exercise.
(even if it is the best workout in the world)
3. "It's harder for women to lose weight than for men."
Truth: Well, biologically men are built with more lean muscle mass than women, meaning HIS metabolism is working at a 5 to 10% higher rate when a couple is lying on the couch together. So while that may not be fair...
it shouldn't stop you from wanting to fit back in your favourite jeans though!
You may or may not agree.. but when something is hard to do, then that is a beautiful thing...
The harder something is, the less people will actually do it - which means the more unique you'll be at the top
4. "Eating fat will make me fat."
Truth: 1980 just called and wants it's myth back.
In fact, it was in the 80"s that the whole 'fat-free' craze started... ..and shortly after this crazy myth, a phenomenon called 'obesity' became a global problem.
Just like with calories, fats are not created equal either.
The topic of fats can get quite complicated but you can do well just by staying away from Trans fats & hydrogenated fats, but make sure to get your Saturated and monounsaturated fats.
You can get these from foods such as olives, nuts, coconut oil, butter, lard and avocados.
The closer it is to nature (less processed) the better.
5. "Eating at night will make me gain weight."
Truth: Cutting out night time snacking is a popular weight loss strategy because it feels logical- eat less when you're less active.
But really, what your weight all comes down to the quality of food and how MUCH you eat...not WHEN you eat.
The problem is that many people eat at night out of boredom or other emotions instead of hunger, and they wind up consuming WAY more calories (generally from junk food) than they need for the day-calories that are then stored as fat.
6. "Weight gain and belly fat are unavoidable after 40."
Truth: It's not like you're going to wake up on your 40th birthday and have an instant belly..
The principles of exercise & nutrition will always apply, and I know SO many people that are over 40 myself included that are in SO MUCH better shape than people in their 20"s.
And the one secret is... their mindset - they are focused and ready to sort their sh*t out.
Yes you may experience a slowing metabolism as you age, but on the flipside, you're much wiser as you age as well.
Use this to make those healthy decisions! - it's never too late to become what you might have been.. so the number 40 is.. just a number in my humble and correct opinion.
Don't let these myths hold you back.
