5 Diet Myths Busted

Updated: Mar 8, 2021

There's a lot of misinformation out there around weight loss and these are some of the common ones

The average woman spends 17 years trying to lose the same 20 to 40 pounds over and over again—leaving you to wonder: do diets even work and why is weight loss so complicated?

And, although burning fat can be an effective way to lose weight, the simple act of burning it, is what causes your body to want to store it all back—plus more—every single time.

Figure out why your body is feeling a need to store fat in the first place and address that.

Usually there is some other underlying issue that has caused their body to feel a need to store fat in the first place. This can come down to what you eat or don’t eat, eating too infrequently or not eating enough, high stress, lack of sleep and even digestive or hormonal issues. When you figure out why your body is holding onto fat, it’s much easier to do something about it.

Myth 2:
