At the start of a new year, many people begin to regret their holiday food decisions. However, this is a great time to commit to a healthier lifestyle. If weight loss is one of your new year’s resolutions, you may want to think twice before beginning a diet regimen. Keep reading to learn more about the most common diet myths.
Myth: Skipping Meals Will Help You Lose Weight
Many people mistakenly believe that skipping meals can promote faster weight loss. In actuality, skipping meals can actually hinder your ability to achieve successful weight loss. This is because when you deny yourself food, your body reacts as if you are starving and begins converting what food you do eat into fat reserves.
Myth: All Fats Should Be Avoided
Another common diet myth is that all fat sources should be avoided. Certain fats are actually good for your body, as they provide you with energy, help rebuild cells, and promote hormone production. This includes fats found in foods such as fish, low-fat dairy, avocados, seeds, and nuts.
Myth: Eating Carbohydrates Leads to Weight Gain
Your body needs a certain amount of carbohydrates to function properly. While many people think that carbohydrates will cause weight gain, certain carbohydrates, like those found in whole grains, can actually make it easier for you to lose weight by providing you with fiber and keeping you full for longer.
Myth: You Can’t Go Wrong with Fruits and Vegetables
It is probably no surprise to you that consuming fresh fruits and vegetables is beneficial to your health and can support weight loss. However, this doesn’t mean that you should eat these items in excess. Even healthy foods can cause weight gain if eaten in large amounts, so be sure you are practicing moderation with all food choices.
Fad diets and yo-yo dieting simply don’t work. Learn how to lose weight effectively and keep it off by contacting Valley Medical Weight Control at (888) 502-5405. You can also learn more about our weight loss programs, lipotropic injections, and B12 injections by visiting our website.

If you are trying to lose weight, being conscious on your daily calorie consumption can help you to eat a balanced, nutritious diet and eliminate unhealthy foods. But what you drink can affect your weight and health as much as what you eat. Soda is the single largest source of calories for the average American, and just one eight-ounce serving of soda can contain the recommended intake of sugar for an adult for an entire day!
