Food Myths in Losing Weight

The world of fitness steadily approaches. More and more people fight for their healthier selves to reduce risks of sickness, complications, and even cancer. As such, many diet plan and exercise courses in magazines and supplements stretch out on supermarket aisles. To be fair, some are true to themselves like something called a “Superfood Diet Pill”. All of them aim to show you the correct way to lose the annoying fat. One problem this world has is that there are many misconceptions. It passed from one place to another by word of mouth and instilled in people’s minds. Here are some of those myths you should stop believing.

Fat burning food – There is no such thing.

In all that is fair, this is a greatly exaggerated fantasy. Food can only speed up your metabolism and help with digestion but not burn fat. You are asking food to burn its kind (which is like cannibalism of sorts) and that is very impossible. To make this clear, fat can only be burned through the difference in your Caloric need for the day vs. your intake for the day. Exercising stimulates faster metabolism and that is the way to go. Again, food cannot burn other food.

Coffee is the enemy of sleep and fitness – No. Not in many ways

People consuming coffee are mad about this allegation. Coffee is an antioxidant that rivals that of tea. Sure, tea is more pure and finessed but coffee is one of the most readily available drink for everyone to consume. It has caffeine that can get you alert. It is true that coffee can make you sleep less but only if you take an inconsiderable amount of it in a day. Coffee makes you smarter and live longer. If this was not dubbed coffee before, it might have been called the ambrosia of drinks on earth. However, do watch out for those coffee baristas that make coffee with unprecedented amounts of sugar.

Eating fat makes you… fat – Another Technically Wrong Idea

This is technically wrong because of the fact that fat cannot be the sole reason why you get fat. Again, fat gain is based on your caloric needs vs. caloric intake. So, the lowdown is that fat cannot simply add to your fat percentage. If you take in fat with HIGH levels of calories or carbs, then it will add to it. However, food that does not have high levels are just that, food. Fat is not eating clay that merges with each other when they touch.
