Top 5 Diet Lies That Need to DIE! 💀
When trying to lose weight (and every time I use the word weight I’m referring to FAT) it is very important to address your diet.
However, with so many trends, gimmicks and flat out lies out there, it can make someone go crazy about what they should be doing.
The simple fact is, when it comes to losing weight it will ALWAYS be more about calories in vs calories out than anything else.
Here are my TOP 5 Nutrition Lies that need to DIE ☠️
#1. 🚫 You must eat 5-6 meals per day to lose weight.
✅ Calories matter. As long as you’re in a caloric deficit it doesn’t matter when or how many meals you eat. Eating 5-6 meals can help with discipline, portion control and getting adequate amounts of protein in but it’s not the only way to lose weight.
#2. 🚫 You must restrict carbs to lose fat.
✅ Sorry keto fans, this isn’t true either. Again, it’s calories in vs calories out. Yes, you can eat and enjoy your carbs and still lose weight 👍
#3. 🚫 Eat clean if you want to lose weight.
✅ Eating clean / healthy isn’t the same as eating for weight loss. Fact is, you can still over eat on clean and healthy foods. Sure, you may be better off eating a salad when compared to drive thru burgers and fries BUT if that salad is loaded with extra calories it won’t matter much to your weight loss efforts.
#4. 🚫 You must use supplements and cleanses to lose weight.
✅ Sorry Herbalife fanatics. This isn’t true either. Supplements can help support a healthy lifestyle but you should learn how to use food first to reach your goals and then supplement as needed.
#5. 🚫Ab exercises burn belly fat, tighten and flatten your stomach.
✅ Ab exercises can help strengthen your midsection while burning calories. If you truly want to see all your hard work, make sure you’re eating in a caloric deficit. Abs are made in the kitchen.
