Busted! 5 fitness myths

 

I’m here to warn you of the 5 myths that most people fall for. Don’t waste your time on these:

Myth #1: Take diet pills to boost your effort.

It’s so tempting! The commercials make compelling claims about the power of diet pills, but don’t fall for it. The ‘magic pill’ has yet to be discovered (it has been discovered – exercise. It’s just not in pill form…). Diet pills are more likely to damage your health and burn your pocketbook than to slim you down. 

Tip: Don’t pop a pill-instead burn calories with exercise.

Myth #2: Starve the pounds away. 

Attempting to lose weight by starving yourself is not only ineffective, it’s also dangerous. It may seem that severe calorie restriction would deliver the quickest weight loss, but your body is complex and by doing so you’ll disrupt your metabolism and slow your results. 

Tip: Don’t starve yourself-instead eat healthy small meals throughout the day. 

Myth #3: Do extra crunches to flatten your abs.

We all want our midsection to look toned as we stroll down the beach, but excessive crunches aren’t the answer for tight abs. In order to achieve a lean look you’ll have to focus on burning off the layer of fat that is covering up your abs.

Tip: Don’t obsess about crunches-instead focus on fat burning.

Myth #4: Eat packaged diet foods for speedy results.

It is amazing to see the kinds of foods that are packaged as ‘diet’ or ‘weight loss’ aids. More often than not these products are packed with refined sugar and other artificial ingredients that your body doesn’t need. 

Tip: Don’t eat packaged diet foods-instead stick with nutritious whole foods.

Myth #5: Avoid all carbohydrates in order to slim down.

Carbohydrates have been given a bad rap, which is unfortunate because you can (and should) eat carbs while losing weight. The key is to stick with whole grains, oatmeal and brown rice while avoiding processed and refined flours and sugars. 

Tip: Don’t swear off all carbohydrates-instead stick with wholesome carbs.

Now that you know what not to do in order to look great this summer, it’s time to go over your beach ready game plan. Here’s what you need to know in 3 simple steps: 

Step One: Cut out the junk.

The best way to do this is to start by purging your kitchen. Get rid of sugary, processed and fat-filled foods. Once the junk has been cleared out don’t buy any more of it. Remember that your beach ready abs depend on what you eat – don’t eat junk!

Step Two: Focus on whole foods.

Replace the junk food in your life with plenty of the following: cooked and raw vegetables, fresh fruits, whole grains, moderate amounts of seeds and nuts, lean meats and low fat dairy. Clean eating really is that simple. 

Step Three: Come train with me.

This is the most obvious step. You’re ready to get into great shape and I’m in a unique position to make that happen for you.

Write It Down

Did you know that writing down your goals is one of the best ways to assure that you will meet them? Make the (healthy) habit to write down your fitness and weight loss goals and to update it periodically with your progress. Remember that the more specific your goals are the more likely you are to meet them. Instead of writing ‘I want to lose some weight’ make your goal more definite like: ‘I want to lose 15 pounds and fit into my size 8 pants’.


 

Smoked Salmon Omelet

It’s healthytastes great and is ready in just a few minutes—what more could you ask for in a breakfast? To make this scrumptious omelet a complete meal, serve it up with wheat toast and fresh fruit.

Yield: 2 Serving

Here’s what you need:
  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 1/4 cup nonfat cream cheese, softened
  • 2 oz smoked salmon
  • Garlic salt and pepper to taste
  1. Whisk together the egg whites, cream cheese, garlic salt and pepper. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Gently push the egg whites toward the center as they cook.
  2. When the eggs are almost set, place the salmon on top. Cover the pan and cook for 30 additional seconds. Remove the lid and fold omelet in half. Cut in half and serve.

    The very root of your writing whilst appearing reasonable in the beginning, did not really settle well with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer but just for a short while. I however have got a problem with your leaps in logic and one would do nicely to help fill in all those breaks. If you can accomplish that, I could certainly be amazed.

    The crux of your writing whilst sounding reasonable originally, did not really work very well with me after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but only for a short while. I still have got a problem with your jumps in logic and you would do well to help fill in those gaps. When you can accomplish that, I could surely be impressed.

Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!
