Weight loss myths we should stop believing
Weight loss myths we should stop believing

Myth: Slow and steady wins the race. A few recent studies turned this theory on its head. One 18-month study that found folks who lost fat quickly kept it off better and weren’t as likely to rebound.

Myth: Grazing all the time helps you lose weight. Taking a food break between meals encourages your body to reach into those fat stores to burn what you’ve already got.

Myth: Low-fat dairy keeps you lean. Experts agree dietary fat isn’t the villain they once made it, yet you’d never know visiting your grocery store shelves filled with low-fat yogurt, fat-free ice cream, and skim milk. Most low-fat and fat-free dairy foods contain added sugar to make up for the horrendous taste.

Myth: Agave is a healthy sweetener. Most agave is simply fructose syrup with anywhere from 55% to 90% fructose. That actually makes agave higher — sometimes way higher — in fructose than high-fructose corn syrup.

Myth: A calorie is a calorie. Different nutrients have different physiological effects and distinct roles within your body. Let’s say I give you 500 calories of wild-caught salmon and spinach or 500 calories of fettuccine Alfredo. Which do you think will satiate you and help you burn fat?
