Myths To Avoid for Weight Loss

Whenever one starts a diet for weight loss or to improve their immunity, they  often follow myths that are not true, and in return, this harms their body and  they don’t achieve the result they would have wished for. This in turn reduces  their morals and their focus, this either leads to them quitting or stopping the  diet. 

Here are some of the tips for a healthy diet: 

1. Avoid skipping breakfast 

People often believe that skipping breakfast is ok and they would compensate  for it in their lunch, but that is not the way to do it.  

People need to understand is that breakfast is the most important part of the  meal because from dinner time to breakfast, one hasn’t eaten anything and then  to go on about one’s day without any food is just not healthy. 

2. Do not chose juice over water 

Many times, people prefer juice over water and that is not the healthy way. Yes,  juices are good for the body, but only the natural ones that do not have added  sugar and preservatives. Water keeps the body hydrated and also curbs one’s  food cravings. So, it is important to drink a lot of water and say no to canned  juices. 

3. Be low on carbs 

It is not necessary that when you go on diet you need to cut down carbs rather,  dieticians and doctors have said that the body needs proteins and carbs and, on a  diet, everything should be eaten in less quantity and not just one thing. 

4. Have a salad when you feel hungry 

It is often thought that when one goes on a diet the only thing to eat is a salad  and that is not true. When one eats only salad, they do not provide their body  with other vital nutrients, therefore one should explore other healthy food  options.  

E.g., Flaxseeds, chia seeds, fish, walnuts, or blueberries, these foods have a lot  of nutritious value and are rich with omega, iron, calcium that helps to improve  one's immunity as well as in fighting cholesterol.

 5. Avoid getting stressed 

While on a diet people are constantly worried about what to eat, how much to  eat, will it be health and many such questions. 

These questions in return stress them out and they start stress eating, thinking  that the diet won't help and they aren’t losing any weight. To avoid all this one  should simply not worry and keep eating healthy food, do some exercises, and  not get stressed out.
