POPULAR MISTAKEN VIEWS CONCERNING FAT LOSS


1. Stick to carbs: People who want to lose weight commonly make a mistake that they do not cut carbohydrates from their diet list. Eating carbohydrate increases our appetite as it is digested very quickly, and the urge for binge eating increases. As a result calorie intake level rises. In the case of weight loss, the diet should be low-carb and carbs rich in fiber should be consumed more. Convenience food contains low-grade refined carbs and harmful additives, they should be avoided.
2. Low Protein intake: Carbohydrates work as energy supplier whereas protein helps in body repair. Protein-rich diet can increase our metabolic rate and reduce appetite. For the long term, fat-loss protein should constitute a major part of a diet. Care should be taken to make sure that lean protein is consumed which means avoiding fast food like – burgers and sausages. Fish is rich in protein, an egg has amino acids, many kinds of cereal and beans contain protein.
3. Fatless Diet: When we think about weight loss, “Fatless Diet” comes first. But it is true that we can’t lose fat until we take good fat. Good fat rich in omega 3 fatty acid helps to replace bad fat i.e saturated fat. Without fat, the body is incapable of absorbing vitamin A, D, E, K efficiently. Good fat found in olive oil, salmon and different nuts, work as a fat burner.
4. Skipping snacks: To bring limitation to calorie intake, we set our meal plan on 2-3 main meals and skips food for a long interval. As our body gets food after a long interval, the natural instinct is to store calorie. So, this type of diet planning helps in weight gaining. Consuming fruits, nuts and sprouts as healthy snacks at regular intervals, work as a fat burner.
