Myths and Facts of Diet for weight loss

There are a lot of myths and facts when it comes to healthy eating for weight loss. Every day we are bombarded with so much information and misinformation about our diets that we scarcely know what to think. Diet Mantra share important myths and facts so that you can plan your diet to shed off thoseImage extra pounds or kgs……

  • Myth: Carbohydrates make you fat 
    Fact: Carbohydrates are necessary for a balanced diet. It’s not the carbs but the calories that contribute the fat. A smart selection of high fibre and low glycemic sources of carbohydrates can do wonders in a weight management program.


  • Myth: Low-fat foods help in weight loss

Fact: It’s not always necessary that low fat or fat free foods are low in calories. In fact, many times the thickeners and extra sugars added to enhance the flavour and texture of these fat free foods make them higher in calories. Read the label for calories.


  • Myth: Avoid desserts completely

Fact: Deprivation is the downfall of all diets. You can have a small portion of dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth and still stick to your diet. Do not overindulge.


  • Myth: No need to worry about the diet if you are enough workouts

Fact: Exercise alone is not enough. Eating a single serving of chocolate cake having 235 calories will require brisk walk for 1 hour to burn these calories. So, you won’t lose weight unless you also cut calories. 


  • Myth: Do not eat after 8pm

Fact: It’s not when you eat that’s important, but the total amount of calories you consume in a 24-hour period. It’s just that eating 2 hours before going to bed helps in better digestion. So, manage your dinner time accordingly.
