Losing weight has become the priority of so many people. Recently, a large amount of content related to weight loss tips and instructions have gone viral on the internet. There are innumerable videos, articles, podcasts etc, all claiming to give proper weight loss advice by following the steps and instructions laid out on their online content.
In the process of getting information and following weight loss rules, so many people are misinformed or misguided. It is true that sacrifices have to be made to achieve your weight loss goals, but sometimes the extent of sacrifices made due to misinformation is not really necessary. Mentioned below are some myths about weight loss that have been disproved.
1. Giving up on alcohol
If you want to lose weight, you don’t have to give up completely on the alcohol. You can take alcohol even when you are trying to lose weight, but while you drink, moderation is very necessary. The problem with alcohol and weight loss comes when the consumption is not reduced, you increase your calorie intake and continuously crave for food especially the junk food. Alcohol should be taken once in a while, especially when you have been consistent with eating healthy.
2. Say no to cheese
When you need to lose weight, or work on your appearance, you don’t have to stay away from cheese or other dairy products. It is just important that you note the type of cheese you consume and how often you take it. Cottage cheese is advisable to consume when you are trying to lose weight because it is high in protein, and contains low fat.
3. You can’t drink coffee
You don’t have to cut down on drinking coffee, in fact, there has been no proof to say that coffee is totally bad for weight loss. Instead of saying no to drinking coffee, what you need to consider the content of your coffee, the quantity of sugar, type of milk, and cream.
If you take black coffee, that would be very good for you. If you cannot take black coffee, go for sugar substitutes, and instead of cream go for skimmed milk.
