Eat right, exercise – weight loss is simple, right? Not exactly. There are so many conflicting tips out there that it’s hard to know what’s true and what’s not. Plus, the weight loss industry’s loudest mouths are often delivering the wrong information. Here are seven secrets that major players in the diet industry don’t want you to know.
1. Exercise Alone Won’t Help You Lose Weight
Some trainers claim that their special workout routine or gadget will burn off all the calories you need to cut – a claim that’s simply silly and impossible. The only way to lose weight and keep it off via exercise is to blend that working out with a sensible diet plan – period.
2. You Need Fat In Your Diet
Fat gets a bad rap, to be honest. The truth is that fat in general isn’t the enemy. Olive oil, avocados, fish, nuts… these things have plenty of good fat that your body needs to keep you feeling full. This type of fat will help you shed the pounds, not pack them on.
