1. When you eat is more important than how much you eat.
Remember hearing you shouldn’t eat after 6 pm because your food will turn to fat? What about skipping breakfast will make you fat?
There is no direct correlation between meal timing, and fat loss. The amount you eat (daily caloric intake) is way more important than the timing of feedings. For more detailed information on the hierarchy of fat loss please read Wellness WORD’S popular post on how to lose weight.
Managing your calories should take full priority over sticking to the correct macronutrient ratios. Meal timing is least important.
2. Eating carbohydrates at night will lead to adding body fat
This is not necessarily true. It all depends upon how many calories, and carbohydrates you have consumed throughout the entire day. No matter if it is carbs, fat, or protein, if you are in a caloric surplus, then you have a good chance of adding fat. On your weight loss program don’t feel guilty if you eat healthy low glycemic carbohydrates at night. Just don’t eat a ton all day long. In terms of controlling blood sugar, it is always best to consume your carbs before, and/or after exercise.
3. You must lose weight on the scale in order to reduce body fat percentage
This is not true! There is something called body re-composition. If you are strength training diligently, and eating an adequate amount of protein there is a good chance of adding metabolically active, fat burning, muscle. You can lose 5 pounds of fat, and gain 5 pounds of muscle. The net result is ZERO on the scale, but you really lost 5 pounds of unwanted fat. Don’t just monitor the scale, keep an eye on your body fat percentage, and also the way your clothes fit. Body composition will change if you do things correctly.
4. Calories don’t matter – eat clean, and cut carbs to lose fat
This is a huge misconception! Yes, yes, and yes caloric intake does matter along with macronutrient composition. Even though it is extremely hard to gain fat by eating too much protein, and fat it still will happen if you eat too many calories of protein, and fat on your weight loss program.
As we discuss in our 100% FREE how to reduce weight videos a calorie is NOT a calorie. Eating 1 gram of protein is different than eating 1 gram of carbohydrate. It takes more energy to digest 1 gram of protein versus 1 gram of carbohydrate. Each macronutrient (protein, carbohydrate, fat) is broken down a bit differently, and has different tasks to help our bodies function optimally.
5. Detox diets will help you lose fat
Weight loss program myth, myth, myth! There is no scientific evidence to suggest any particular diet program will help you lose fat. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Don’t fall for this foolish idea!
