When it comes to weight loss and achieving the body we want, the first step to take is to watch our diet and work out regularly. Eat less and burn more calories, that sounds pretty fool-proof isn't it? Apparently, the conversation doesn't end there.

Besides having a healthy diet and getting into your fitness regime, a search on Google will give you another ten thousand tips and tricks on the best ways to lose weight. There are so many "quick fixes" but which are the ones that really works?

Here, we are going to do some myth busting to help us lose weight the right way.


Myth 1: Avoid carbohydrates at all cost

A low carb and high protein diet will definitely lead to weight loss, yes. However, carbohydrates equal weight gain is definitely untrue. Refined carbs like refined grains and sugar will lead to weight gain but whole foods, even if they are high in carbohydrates, can be very healthy. Therefore, it is not true that we need to avoid carbohydrates at all cost. You just need to choose the right kind.


Myth 2: Slimming pills will help you lose weight

First things first, always buy slimming pills from doctors, or from reliable sources like a pharmacy or an established retail store. We really want to be careful with the drugs that we consume. That said, yes, slimming pills may help you lose weight. But that alone will not keep your weight off in the long run. Long term weight loss is best combined with a healthy and active lifestyle.


Myth 3: No snacking

It is ok to snack but we need to choose the right type of snacks. Potato chips and chocolates are big no-nos. If you are really starving or need to keep your energy level up in-between meals, opt for snacks like fruits or vegetables instead of those that are high in sugar or saturated fat.


Myth 4: Start with a detox diet

Detox and start on a clean slate. Sounds good, but detox diets can also deprive your body of calories and nutrition. When you start to reintroduce different kinds of food to your body, your body will gain more weight for fear of another detox diet. It is your body's way of protecting itself. Therefore, it is advisable to check with a doctor before going ahead with a detox diet.


Myth 5: Work out real hard

Exercising is important to stay healthy but do not start a rigorous or high-intensity regime too suddenly. An overnight rigorous workout routine can cause injuries and stop you from doing any more exercises. It is more advisable to start slow and work your way up to more intensive or rigorous routines, and enjoy exercising for long term benefits to show.

However, many a times, no matter how much we watch our diets and how hard we work out, we somehow reached a plateau during our weight loss journey. There may also be stubborn fat pockets that refuse to go away, like those on our hips, thighs or tummies.
