An overweight person is fed
up with his/her body weight and wants to get rid of those extra pounds. What
he/she does is pick up the mobile, search for the weight-loss diets, and
start following them without any professional recommendation. And, the result?
Not satisfying at all!
The reason behind this
failed effort of weight loss is the lack of knowledge or misconceptions
regarding healthy weight loss. Here are a few common misconceptions regarding
weight-loss diets that lead to an unsuccessful weight loss journey.
1. We forget
the role of liver
It is very common to hear
that a healthy digestive system is what a body needs for healthy weight
management but what keeps the digestive system healthy? Besides eating
stomach-friendly foods, it is also necessary to keep the liver in shape by
consuming more water and lesser fatty foods. A healthy liver speeds up the
detoxification process which consequently improves all body functions including
2. We neglect
The common but major
misconception that online diet plans carry is the lowest portion from carbs or
no carbs at all. This may speed up the weight loss but only for the time being
because as soon as a person gets back to a normal routine the weight starts
increasing in an abnormal pattern. Moreover, the weight a person loses in such
weight loss programs is majorly the muscle portion and water reserves, and this
is not counted healthy.
3. We fail to
understand the role of protein
In common weight loss diet
plans, protein is often used to fulfill the 15% to 20% of place in a diet
without looking into its impact on the diet. Whereas protein-rich foods, due to
their slower digestion than carbs, cause longer fullness of stomach and also
help to speed up the body metabolism.
4. We overrate
the role of green tea
The recommendation of green
tea and other caffeinated beverages is very common in weight loss diets but the
thing, we neglect most of the time, is that a single step is never enough to
reach a particular destination. People drink green tea and get no results, why?
Because they fail to understand that without the precaution in dietary options,
this drink is not going to do any wonder at all. The role of green tea is to
detoxify the body and help a little bit in fat oxidation, that’s all! It will
not crush the fat all alone, and thus it is a major misconception that green
tea alone can help in weight loss.
misunderstand the term “physical activity”
Want to lose weight? Go out,
start running and tear yourself out. And, then what? The person will get tired,
muscles in the body will be torn apart, and there will be no oxygen left in the
body to carry out fat oxidation. Consequently, this common misconception did
nothing but caused the body to run out of the oxygen essential for performing
different functions. For healthy weight loss, it is always suggested to be
light on your body, and gentle in exercise.
All the misconceptions that
are presented in front of you all are to create awareness that everything we
hear or we see on the internet is not always the way we perceive it. However, there
are some natural methods that can help in achieving weight goals but always get
a recommendation from a qualified dietitian/nutritionist before following
