Myth 1 

People tend to want to believe that the more they are sweating the more fat they are losing, where they come up with this I don’t know. Yes you do tend to weigh less on the scale after a hour long sweat session, but the sweating isn’t dropping any fat all it is doing is removing the water weight your body is holding.

Myth 2

Myth 2 is around the basis that carbs are what’s causing you to be fat and overweight. One of the first things people tend to want to do is cut out carbs. Now if you look at it from a nutritional point of view, fat is what makes your body fat! And with more calories per gram of fat than that of protein or carbs, by reducing your fat intake is the better way to drop a few extra pounds. Remember your body needs fat though (from healthy fat sources) so don’t cut this out completely.

Myth 3 

When it comes to training and you want to lose weight, people think they should do cardio first and then weight training, this is the wrong way to go about it in my opinion. Resistance/Weight training will burn more calories than what a cardio session will, so use as much energy as you can to hit the weights and then use the spare time after to do some cardio, rather than burning yourself out on cardio and then just doing a little resistance work.

Don’t fall into all the lies that have been spread around in the industry. Go about training the right way and actually see the results you want.
