Losing weight is a real challenge that entails months of discipline, commitment, restricted diets and plenty of exercises.
The process starts from cutting out all sugars and opting for low-fat dairy. Skipping meals usually results in nutrient deficiencies, which in turn lead to fatigue and lower mental focus.
Taking Sports Drinks
Many people tend to take sugary drinks before and after workouts but these drinks often contain more calories than the number of calories they have just burned off. Hydration is the most important element to achieving good health.
Consuming the So Called ‘Healthy’ Foods
There is an increasing number of people becoming aware of their health and supermarkets have taken this into account. Stores are now stocking up foods that are seemingly healthy, but it’s always best to avoid these processed and inorganic foods. Better yet include a 3-day detox cleanse in your routine.
Eating healthily beats exercise. Relying on exercise alone usually backfires. This is because of the effect exercise has on our appetite hormones, which makes you feel hungrier right after the exercise.
Believing That Eating Fat Makes You Fat
Most foods labelled as fat free are usually not 100% legit. In order to make up for the lack of fat and the resulting lack of taste, food manufacturers will usually opt to compensate that by adding artificial sugar extracts to improve the flavor and texture.
Cutting Out All Sugars from Your Diet
Artificial sugar is harmful to our health and misleadingly people tend to believe that all sugars are bad. This does not apply to fruit, as they contain fructose which is a natural sugar. Fructose is only harmful when it’s taken in large amount which is near impossible to consume that much from a fruit. Eating fruits in your diet is healthy and safe.
Excluding Red Meat from Your Diet
Human beings have been consuming red meat for many centuries. Some people believe that it’s unhealthy and unsafe. On the contrary if it’s unprocessed and well-cooked it’s rich in vitamins, healthy protein and fat which is completely acceptable in a healthy diet.
Using Supplements to Gain Nutrients
Sometimes one is unable to gain all the required nutrients from food consumption hence requiring supplements. They are useful especially when dealing with certain medical conditions. People often think the supplements can replace actual foods. But, they can never replace real food.
