MYTHS AND WAYS TO MASTER THEM

We hear different kinds of myths but there are ways to master them.

MYTH:1

Zero calories beverages do not count

As we find a huge variety of” DIET” beverages in the supermarket, we tend to choose them happily resulting in increased Obesity. The harsh reality is that although many of these drinks (like energy drinks or soft drinks) are labelled “ZERO CALORIE”, they contribute to other  negative health effects which becomes a hindrance to weight loss. Researchers have found that those who consume sweetened beverages are more likely to consume more calories, increase body fat and gain more weight.

Swap artificially sweetened beverages for a freshly squeezed fruit or vegetable juice, rich in nutrients which will ultimately benefit our overall health and cleanse our body.

Fruit based breakfast lowers net calories

If you think that eating a fruit bowl for breakfast will lower your weight. You need to think twice. Consuming fruit alone in the morning may lead to mid-morning crash which results in craving for sugars and sweets.

The Alternative

Try to have a breakfast which has a balance of carbohydrates and protein that help you to feel full till your lunch time or the next meal.

Eat less, lose more
