Avoid these 5 food myths that can sabotage your weight loss goals. Myth #1: Drinking three glasses of milk every daycan help you maintain a healthy weight. Reality: The reality is that milk cannot be properly digested by most adults. So, choosing leafy greens and legumes for calcium and drinking plenty of water instead seems a better option.

Myth #2: Carbs make you fat. Myth #1: You have to cut out certain foods to lose weight. Losing weight is really about adding healthier foods to your diet. Think more veggies, more often, and strive to eat more produc.

Otherwise, you’ll keep going from one diet to the next. You’ll never be able to stick with anything. We follow X plan by willing ourselves to stay strong for as long as we can until we can’t take it anymore.

We eventually lose steam, and revert back to our old ways. Like motivation, willpower is not sustainable. INSIDER talked with four experts to find out the most common weight loss myths that might be getting in the way of your progress. 1. Having willpower is the only way to stick to a diet.

Prepping meals ahead of time and eliminating healthy foods from your kitchen can decrease temptations. Studies show that it helps you stick to a healthy diet and leads to greater weight loss. 11. Get a partner to join you.

Sticking with a healthy eating and exercise plan can be tough to. Stay away from processed foods and stick to a nutritious, balanced diet. Myth #5: You Will Crave More and Be Hungry All the Time.

If you just think about it, not being. “You’re going to be hungry all the time.” “It’s going to take two hours of exercise per day.” “You’re going to have to avoid all the foods you like and eat a bland, boring diet.” “Just do ab exercises every day and you’ll get a flatter stomach.” How many of these diet myths have you heard?If you need to lose weight, the 5:2 diet can be very effective when done right..

This is mainly because the 5:2 eating pattern helps you consume fewer calories. Therefore, it. The easier a diet is to follow, the better the odds are of sticking to it. So user-friendliness was one of the factors experts considered in rating the 35 popular programs below.

For example, even if you know it’s good for you to stop eating sugary foods, once you commit to eliminating these products from your diet, you will have to face mental and physical cravings, as well as disappointment when others are enjoying such foods and you cannot.

  • This is great info. Very clear. BTW if anyone fancies a further deep dive into this subject NinjaNerd do a brilliant lecture on lipoprotein metabolism. Very detailed but also aligned to the info in this presentation.

  • I was given Atorvastatin 20 mg following a mild stroke 27 months ago. After watching a video in Nov 2018, on the side effects of statins, (12 listed, of which I appeared to have about half to some degree), I stopped taking the drug. I was to find out that I was suffering an unlisted and severe side effect. For over a year, I was having daily and worsening choking episodes whenever I drank or ate and did not concentrate on the swallowing process. I was totally at a loss to the cause so put it down to “getting old”, (68 yo)!! Upon ceasing the statins, on 1st Dec 18, the choking stopped on the third day and I have not choked once since. The statins were paralysing or desensitising my epiglottis, which I can now feel reacting to a potential choking situation. In addition, a week after stopping statins I was able to stop wearing knee braces and putting Dencorub on my elbows to help alleviate arthritic type pain. I might add that I am T2D and changed to a LCHF diet in Dec 18. Lost weight, blood sugar good, (no longer taking Metformin) and bp lower!

  • I’ve heard that fitness happens through exercise, but weight loss happens in the kitchen. From personal experience, I have arrived at the same conclusions as your video Insane/misguided dieting is not the answer! Avoiding unhealthy food and excess food while aiming for fitness through exercise will serve the purpose well:)

  • Will a safe carbohydrate daily intake amount ever be a measurable unit???

    It’s coming to a point within nutrition where it’s becoming a belief that ANY amount of carbs at all are BAD, which I will actually be okay with anyway.

  • I have been on a very low carb diet (keto) for about a year. I’m 66 years old and fit physically, except I’m having awful muscle cramps everywhere. What bothers me most is muscles around my stomach which cramp up into like a ball and pop up until relaxing… not to mention feet, legs, arms, anything I stretch in the middle of the night turns into a cramp. Been on mega doses of Magnesium and Potassium… doesn’t help much. Any suggestions?

  • Believe or not, whole milk is my weakness. I effing love it. Some people drink whiskey. Some people drink wine. I drink milk. Grass-fed milk that is. I guess I am a grown-up baby. ��

  • good job man.
    I need some help.
    I am trying to lose fat, following a moderate diet slowly cutting down calories and increasing protein intake. Workout 4-6 days a week. but my weight loss is very slow. in last 4 months I’ve managed to lose only 7-8kgs.
    Where am i lacking or making mistake.
    i try to stay 300-500 calories below to my maintenance.

  • WOW! The intro speaker Ashley Mason looks a LOT like Amanda Knox, the american exchange student in Perugia, Italy that was accused along with her then Italian boyfriend, Rafaele Sollecito of murdering her British roomate Meredith Kircher in 2008.

  • I was on statins for 4 years, in my 50s. I started them when my Cholesterol went up from 140 to 190 in menopause. I started to suffer from extreme muscle pain, back pain, weak ankles, fuzzy brain etc. I had NO idea it was the statins and my Dr said it was from growing older. A neighbor told me he had become weak and had muscle weakness and could hardly walk. Finally was diagnosed with statin neuropathy from Mayo Clinic.He suffered permanent damage to his muscles. I stopped Statins after falling and breaking my wrist and spraining my ankle. My ankle just gave way while walking down some stairs. My dr still insists this was “aging”. I have Cholesterol in the 390s now, do not take statins. No muscle pain, weakness, problems. NO back pain, I can again do my own housework, I cross country ski, bike, hike. Just got back from overseas and walked 5-8 miles a day, no foot pain. I eat LCHF, only occasional grains and sometimes potatoes. I am 5’5 and weigh 122lbs. I fought for YEARS to maintain a 134lb weight with exercise and low fat diets and had a fat belly around the middle which was just “normal “ aging. Recently I was talked into statins again, took them for a week and could hardly roll out of bed in the morning! So, no more statins. My ratios are bad. I’m a bit scared, but I feel good, strong and healthy.

  • If you’re on a weight watchers style diet and try to take a half-hour walk, you’ll have to fight a lot more during that half-hour than you would if your hypothalamus doesn’t think you’re starving.

  • I’m sorry dairy is meant to take a baby cow to a full grown cow in 1 year. They gain about 60-70 lbs a month. Anyone who thinks this could be good for humans is a clown ��

  • The event that occurred in 1991 was the Dairy Termination Program. This was conducted by the Department of Agriculture. The DTP made dairy farm closure mandatory. Farmers were bought out by the government and had to send their livestock to slaughter. These farms could not reopen for 5 years and required Department authorization. I haven’t found definitive reasoning besides glut and low sales and the got milk campaign occurred after DTP. Also, in 2016, 46 billion gallons of milk were dumped due to glut. rBST was approved for use by the FDA in 1993. US meat and dairy products are banned for sale in the EU, Japan, NZ, Australia, Isreal, Argentina and Canada because the use of rBST is unethical. Monsanto was the successful firm that received FDA approval on their cloning patent.

  • If you want a good laugh: go to 31:08 and put on the subtitles:D

    And now seriously: as a Biomedical Researcher in Hepatology/Gastroenterology I’m highly interested in nutrition. As a sportsy type I’m also highly interested in fitness. Health and how the human body works is what got me into Biomedical Science in the first place. Now that I have access to the Biomedical Literature through my uni (now doing a PhD, worked in Biotech earlier for 5 years), I’m planning to look up papers, reviews on nutrition and also try to communicate this to a broader audience. Videos like these are essential to try and boycot the ‘crap’ food industry, because in the end, it’s still an industry. Nutrition science is so complex and there are so many misconceptions out there. More importantly, I think good nutritious food and healthy habits are hugely underestimated as therapeutic options for so many diseases… but then again like Dr. Rose explains, psychology. It’s much easier to take a pill per day then cook yourself 2 or 3 healthy meals and go for a 30 min run…

  • Hey! Thanks for the video. Where can I find evidence of this research? I need to prove my physiopathology teacher that this is how it works.

  • Okay. Here’s the dilemma of 6 months ketogenic diet (plenty of exercise) and an annual checkup. Cholesterol 303 mg/dL (up from 177 year ago), LDL Calculated 231 (up from 121). Cholesterol/HDL ratio 5.7 (up from 3.9). All of these out of the ‘Standard Range’

    I know what comes next, statin, cut out that keto stuff…. I’ve dropped 20 lbs, doing at least 8 hours exercise/week (I guess I’d need to double this to look like Patient 1 in the video).

    How do you have a discussion with a medical professional when your side of the argument is “I saw it on YouTube?” Low Carb Down Under does have speakers with legitimate credentials and here there are even references(well done). Bottomline is I’m not qualified to disagree. (As an American I am well aware of our unspoken right, The 0 Amendment: The right to have a completely idiotic notion and be louder than anybody else about it. This supersedes the First Amendment: The right of free speech. In practice the guy with the most dangerous wrong idea has the right to be louder and yammer on longer than anyone else present-especially if they actually understand the topic. I don’t want to be ‘that guy’.)
