Lose Weight with a Diet

The Myths Get Busted and we give you nothing but the Facts

Lose Weight with a Diet

It's a week after Memorial Day and summer is finally here. The start of summer signals bikini season and we all know what that means—time to dust off that itsy-bitsy bikini that’s been sitting in your closet all winter.

But it's easier said than done, right? We know that losing weight can be hard, but if you try to lose weight with a diet that’s already been proven to work, all you really need to bring to the table is your willpower and determination because eating healthy and supplementing that with exercise will do the trick and whip you right into shape.

However, the problem with modern day weight loss is that there are many preconceived notions that you must sift through before you come across the facts.

Lose weight with a diet: the top diet myths busted

There are many misconceptions and preconceived notions about diets and meal delivery services. Over the years, the media and Television world has made diets out to be something that they're not. They've pushed aside proven weight loss solutions that deliver lasting results for faster weight loss initiatives with results that do not last.

      - Carbs? Run away now: Carbs are not bad for the body, but like everything else, you can’t have too many of them or you will gain weight. The extreme elimination of carbs could cause your body to become deficient in vitamins, minerals and sugars. There are two different types of carbs—simple and complex—complex carbs are generally better for you.

      - Fatty foods? No way: Your body needs fats on a daily basis, however, keep in mind that not all fat is bad for you. Try olive oil, salmon, avocados, nuts and seeds, and peanut butter.

It takes just a few weeks to start seeing results so you won’t have to wait very long to notice a difference.
