Good afternoon, my name is Katarina Holst and I work as a fitness instructor for a long time. I am often asked the question ” How to lose weight fast ?” Coming to me in the gym, many women become slim and fit. But the most important thing is that they stop living in the Internet illusions and begin to understand the issues of nutrition and weight loss themselves. In this article, you will learn how to avoid the basic misconceptions about weight loss.
LABELS DON’T LIE
According to international standards, the volume of ingredients, trace elements, and calories may differ from those on the package by no more than 20%. But it does mean that in the fruit bar is 100 calories may be hiding from 120. But there is good news, people who read labels lose weight faster than those who do not read.
HUNGER IS A SIGN OF WEIGHT LOSS
If your stomach is constantly asking for food, then you have chosen a bad diet. Simple carbohydrates dramatically raise blood sugar levels and then it also plummets, making you feel hungry and tired. Eat more fiber-rich foods like vegetables, beans, and seeds with quality protein.
GENES DECIDE EVERYTHING
Genetic predisposition to completeness is not fair. As practice shows, in most families where they are overweight, it is not the genes that are to blame for the fullness, but the wrong eating behavior. Most of the habits we learn as a child, looking at parents. However, it is in our power to change bad habits.
ANY CARBS ARE EVIL
It’s time to remember that completely eliminating any group of nutrients is a direct path to failure. Yes, we should reduce to zero the use of such products as white rice, pasta, and semi-finished products. But without legumes, fruits, nuts, or whole-grain oatmeal, we simply have nothing to eat. Long starvation lead to health problems.
ANY SUGAR BAD FOR LOSI
Simple and cane sugar are harmful to the body. However, for energy and a good mood, we need glucose. Melissa Rifkin recommends combining harmless fruit sugar with protein to control the glycemic index.
A GLUTEN-FREE DIET HELPS TO LOSE WEIGHT
Surprise: in low-fat foods calories no less than in the “full”. Often such food is not very tasty and to compensate for this, manufacturers are forced to add to “diet” food additional sugar or artificial flavor enhancers. After this, we starting to eat a lot because the label says “GLUTEN-FREE”
THE MORE SWEAT, THE MORE LOSE WEIGHT
Intensive interval training really makes the process of weight loss more effective. But do not go too far in workouts. It is better to enter the rhythm gradually, starting with light loads and favorite group activities. It is proved that this approach leads to constancy. Also, too sharp a change of rhythm leads to fatigue and depression, traditionally accompanied by weight gain.
HEALTHY FATS ARE BAD
Author of the book “Eat Fat, Get Thin” Mark Hyman does not agree. “Foods high in fat reduce appetite, speed up calorie burning, and prevent fat in the body. The real culprits of a weight gain are sugar and refined carbohydrates.” Hyman advises to completely abandon the latter, and healthy vegetables and fruits complement the same healthy fats from olive or coconut oil, nuts, and seeds.
DO NOT EAT AFTER SEVEN
Remember you need to eat for an hour after waking up, in the afternoon do not stretch the pause between meals write longer than 4-6 hours. The stomach will tell you “thanks”.
ALL HEALTHY FOOD IS TASTELESS
Experts recommend that you try one dish 10 times before you finally decide whether you like it. Research on this topic was conducted in 2010! We get used to a lot of sugar and flavors. Abandoning them, we will restore our taste buds.
WITH WORKOUTS I CAN SKIP DIET
A couple of miles in the stadium burn fewer calories than in a one-cup Starbucks coffee. However, exercise allows us to keep our body in good shape when losing weight.
WE HAVE TO FORGET ABOUT ALCOHOL
Alcohol does not help lose weight fast. But if you limit yourself to a bottle of light beer or a glass of dry wine, nothing bad will happen.
To sum up, we can say that you can lose weight quickly, but you need to know how to do it. You can try hundreds of diets and exercises, but do not get the result, and you can read one article and move the plateau in weight loss. Remember that there is nothing more important than knowledge, especially in such a topic as “Weight loss”.
