The 5 Most Misleading “Facts” About Fat Loss

Steady state cardio is fine to mix in for a good calorie burn, but when it comes to fat loss, it might be holding you back. Try some interval training and be sure to do a lot of leisure paced cardio as well.

4. Just Eat Healthy – For a lot of people, the problem isn’t knowing which foods are good or bad for you. The problem lies in overeating them. If you’re already overweight or you eat a lot of processed, sugary, high-starch foods, then you’ll see good results from changing your eating habits. This change should include moving towards foods like fruits, vegetables, lean meats and natural, “from the Earth” foods. Avoiding things like processed foods, artificial sweeteners, and fast absorbing carbs will be a great way to start your transformation.

With that said, eating too much healthy food is still too much when it comes to fat loss, especially if your body fat percentage is fairly low. Clean eating is important for having a healthy body, but too much clean eating is still too much. This goes back to the simplest part of fat loss – creating a calorie deficit. If you eat too many calories, it’s going to be near impossible to lose a lot of body fat. So eat healthy, but in the APPROPRIATE amount of healthy food.

5. Fat Loss Aids – Fat loss supplements need to be thought of as an accelerator, not a crutch. There are A LOT of fat loss supplements out there. Many of them are useless, but many of them do provide fat loss benefits. However, NONE of them will magically make you lose fat by just popping a pill, mixing up a drink, or putting on some kind of wrap. None of them will be beneficial without a great exercise program and the right nutrition program for you. If you have these two things, a fat loss supplement may accelerate your progress. Many of them rely on hormonal changes to help your body burn more fat, but if you’re not working out efficiently and eating for fat loss, no amount of pills can help you long term.

Focus on learning how to lift weights correctly and efficiently, and learning how to eat properly for your body. Once you have these two things down, you can start considering supplements.

These are the most common misleading “facts” about fat loss that I hear. Avoid these pitfalls and you’ll be one step closer to changing your body for life.
