Start the Week Off Right: Four exercise and nutrition myths


Start the Week Off Right: Four exercise and nutrition myths
Quad City Times

TIMESIt is important to know the common exercise and nutrition myths in order to assure you are exercising and eating correctly. In this article, I have provided a few examples of common myths regarding exercise and nutrition.Myth No. 1: I can spot-reduce body fat with specific exercises.Fact: You cannot spot-reduce body fat. Fat loss occurs through a combination of diet, cardiovascular exercise and strength training. This means that fat loss happens throughout your whole body, not just in specific spots. If you want to change your body, start by eating healthy and exercising consistently.Myth No. 2: Increasing exercise and drastically cutting calories will yield quick, lasting weight loss.Fact: When you significantly cut calories and exercise you may lose weight. However, this type of weight loss is not a lasting, sustainable weight loss and does not promote good behavior changes. A âvery low-calorie dietâ can be a different amount per individual depending on height, weight, age and physical activity.
