Top Myths About Weight Loss Diets

Myth 1. Cut out carbs to lose weight. Carbohydrates eaten in the right amounts will supply adequate calories that you can use as energy. Instead of watching your carb intake, count your calories. This gives an accurate picture of the amount of energy your body needs to burn to keep the extra weight off.

Myth 2. Fat and cholesterol are bad for you. Like carbohydrates, fat and cholesterol are also needed in the right amounts for the body to function properly. Reducing or eliminating intake of foods high in saturated fat while preferring those rich in unsaturated fat also lowers your low density lipoprotein (LDL or ‘bad cholesterol’) level, and increases the ‘good cholesterol’ HDL level in your body.
