Common Myths to Avoid When Planning a Weight Loss Party
You need to avoid the most common dietary mistakes when planning a weight loss party. Some of the biggest misconceptions are listed below.
MYTH- “Certain foods burn fat and speed up your metabolism.
FALSE: There are no foods that burn fat, make you lose pounds faster or speed up your metabolism in such a way that you will lose weight more quickly.
MYTH- “Foods labeled ‘low-fat’ or ‘no-fat’ are always a healthy option.
FALSE: Many of them may actually contain more sugar or sodium to compensate for the loss of flavor generated by reducing fat.
MYTH- “Eliminating snacks between meals will help you lose weight.
FALSE: Actually, when it comes to losing weight, the problem is not the snacks themselves, but what kind they are. Many people need to eat something between meals to maintain their energy levels.
MYTH- “If you’ve eaten everything and a lot at parties, you have to go on a very extreme diet.”
FALSE: Some weight-loss diets stand out for being extremely low in calories, which explains the initial weight loss. However, maintaining this style of eating is unsustainable over time, because the lack of nutrients will generate fatigue and difficulty concentrating. In addition, when the person returns to his or her usual diet, eventually there will be a “rebound effect” and they will experience weight gain.
MYTH- “Détox juices are the solution to overeating at parties”
FALSE: Fruit and vegetable consumption should ideally be in its natural form to take advantage of its fiber, vitamin, mineral and antioxidant content.
MYTH- “The banana is a forbidden food to lose weight”
FALSE: He’s got bad press. It is a food rich in fiber, potassium and magnesium, and it raises serotonin, which helps regulate appetite through satiety. The insulin ion and leads to a greater accumulation of fat.
MYTH- “Por Salut cheese is the healthiest because it is lean and low in calories”
FALSE: Under the label “por salut”, many believe that this is one of the ideal cheeses to accompany a diet, but its name comes from a monastery in France, in Port du Salut, and in its common version, it provides 25 gr. of fat and about 320 kcal per 100 gr, which is not little
MYTH- “Drinking plenty of fluids before a meal helps you lose weight”
FALSE: Water alone does not provide satiety, nor do drinks in general. That is precisely the problem with soft drinks and wine, which provide a lot of calories and do not satisfy the appetite.
