Exercise & Weight Loss - Myths and Reality

If you want to reach your weight loss and fitness goals as quickly and safely as possible, here are some common myths to steer clear of:

Exercise & Weight Loss Myth 1

You shouldn't start weight training until you've lost most of the weight you want to lose because it will slow down your fat loss, or trap your fat in the muscle, or who knows what else.

FACT - Weight training is vital to a weight loss program because it turns up the metabolic fires that burn calories - and it tones your muscles. You can start weight training immediately.

Exercise & Weight Loss Myth 2

You should always do your weight training just before your aerobic exercise session because you burn more fat that way. I've even heard that you should weight train, eat two raw carrots, and then do your aerobic exercise.

FACT - The order in which you exercise does not affect how you lose weight. I always recommend weight training just after your aerobic exercise (such as walking) simply because your muscles are warm and supple and much less prone to injuries.

Exercise & Weight Loss Myth 3

You burn more fat if you exercise on an empty stomach.

FACT - Exercising on an empty stomach does not affect how you lose weight. In fact, it may hinder it if you don't have the energy to exercise. You should at least drink a glass of juice prior to your workout if you're exercising in the morning.

Exercise & Weight Loss Myth 4

You can lose fat from a specific part of your body by doing an exercise for that part of your body. For example, abdominal crunches will remove fat from your abdominal area.

FACT - You can't spot reduce! You cannot control where fat is removed from your body.
