People who wish to reduce their weight; especially need to know the myths related to weight loss. If you believe in various myths related to weight loss then you might be doing such activities which are not really beneficial for weight loss. Till you do not make yourself aware about various weight loss facts; you would not be able to drive your way to a perfect weight loss plan.

Here are 7 weight loss myths:

  1. Some weight loss products can reduce weight in a few days: Most of the products which promise such fast weight loss results are meant for nothing but making profit for the companies which make them.
  2. Fat is not good for health: This is not the whole truth. The truth is that some types of fat are essential for the health while some fats are unhealthy. Monounsaturated fats which are found in avocado, chocolates etc. are good for health.
  3. Eating less is necessary for weight loss: People who think that starving themselves will help in weight loss are wrong. If people eat too less, then their bodies would switch itself in to such a mode that every bit of food they eat would be saved. This may add to weight loss.
  4. One should not eat after evening: Instead of the time of eating, weight loss depends on the food you eat. It is a fact that Europeans eat dinner at 10 P.M. but they have less weight than Americans.
  5. You need to go to a gym for weight loss: The number of gym goers has increased a lot due to this myth. However, it is not necessary for obese people to join a gym to lose their weight. You can lose weight without even going to a gym.
  6. Carbohydrates is your enemy: Carbohydrates are not your enemy. Just like fat, there is a difference between unhealthy and healthy carbohydrates. For instance, carbohydrates offered by vegetables is good for health while carbohydrates offered by white sugar results in weight gain.
  7. Pills can make you lose weight: You should understand that there is no miracle weight loss pill which has been made yet. Weight loss pills also have serious side effects. Therefore, it is best to avoid weight loss supplements and lose weight naturally.

I really enjoy this blog post! I am currently in the process of losing weight, and have found that going to the gym is not necessary, nor is starving yourself. And above that, losing weight can be very addictive! I hope to keep the other myths you shared here in mind while continuing my weight loss campaign. I really agree with them all though, and thanks again!

All of written is true! I made same mistakes when I tried to lose weight many years ago. Today I have ideal weight and eat 5-6 times a day healthy carbs, fats and proteins and don't get weight gain.
