Diet Tips

The Reality of Dieting

There are so many schools of thought when it comes to dieting that it is difficult to determine what works and what doesn't. The truth of the matter is that what works for one person might fail for another. We've listed some misconceptions about dieting to help you weed out the bad advice and determine what's best for you. 

Myth: Eating fat-free foods will help you drop pounds fast.

Fact: "Fat-free" does not mean "calorie free". Many low-fat and fat-free food manufacturers have lowered their fat content but still provide calories from carbohydrates. Remember that your body must have some oils because they contain fat soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids that are, as their name implies, vital to good health. You find them in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds and oily fish such as mackerel, sardines and tuna.

Myth: The women in my family tend to be heavy so that's my destiny.

Fact: You do not inherit fat, just a tendency to become fat. The women in your family may tend to store excess weight around their thighs, but whether you accumulate this fat in the first place depends on the way you lead your life. If the number of calories you eat each day match those that you burn then you will not gain weight anywhere on your body, regardless of your parents' shape. What tends to happen, however, is that we inherit eating and lifestyle habits from those we grow up with. Stop blaming your genes and kick those bad habits by eating well and staying active.

Myth: You need to starve yourself to lose weight. 

Fact: It's not how much you eat but what you are eating. Some foods contain a lot more calories than others. One small cake can contain more calories than a piece of chicken and a plateful of vegetables (and leave you feeling a lot less full). 

Myth: Skipping meals will help you lose weight.

Fact: If you stop eating regularly your body will only hold on to its reserves. The body goes into "starvation" mode in the fear of not getting food soon. There is also danger that by not eating all day you will overeat or binge in the evening. After a night of not eating, breakfast is the fuel that boosts your metabolism. Successful weight losers ensure they have three carefully planned meals per day, including a breakfast. Their total daily calorie limit is divided amongst these meals and small snacks.

Myth: Foods like chilies and ginger, and drinks like coffee and cola speed up your metabolism so that you burn calories faster.

Fact: These foods may increase your metabolism very, very slightly, but certainly not sufficiently for you to sit back and expect them to melt away excess weight.

Building Endurance #170

If you want to walk or jog for longer periods of time without getting fatigued, continue with a weight-lifting routine.

Lifting weights not only builds strong muscles, but also can improve your aerobic capacity. Improving your aerobic endurance level will enable you to walk, bike, swim, or jog for longer periods of time before exhausting yourself.
