In present time, the whole world is bearing the problem of obesity. In that context, weight losing is the only way that can help an individual in getting out from this problem. Topic of weight losing does not any kind of explanation in present scenario. People are ready to adopt any kind of method that can help them in losing their excessive weight. However, the kind of topic I am going to discuss with you is completely different from others. In this article, you will come to know about some superstitions that can be obstacle in way of weight losing.
- Having an exact proportion of calories
This particular point can be understood by getting through this example. Let us imagine that you have basal metabolic of 1,500 calories and you burn near about 2,200 calories in a day by your methods of excising and in terms of eating. Further, you decide to lose some extra amount of your excessive weight and you read somewhere that if you eat 500 fewer calories per day and keep this schedule over a week, then you would surely lose some amount of fat that can be near about 1 pound.
After that, you start counting your calories carefully and make sure that you are having an exact amount of calorie that is 500. However, after a week you will get to realize all these things were useless because you did not slow down your metabolism and the most important thing that you have to consider at the time of weight losing that did you enter into starvation mode that was much important. However, you will find negative answer of both questions.
Therefore, a proper calculation of “dieting” is in much need, when you decide that you will lose some weight because calculating the exact amount of calories would not be enough.
- Selecting some specific foods for getting a high metabolism
Some specific ways are there that can help you in boosting up your metabolism but it has been seen quite often that people use some traditional and non-effective ways of leveling their metabolism up. However, if you are thinking that just by doing some kinds of exercises you will increase your metabolism from 50 to 100 percent, and then let me tell you that your thinking is completely wrong.
It has been proved scientifically that a high metabolic rate has some specific symptoms of it that are discussed below. However, before discussing them, here is information to you that the metabolic rate gets elevated when you do some correct form of exercises. The other symptoms of a high metabolic rate are-
- Feeling of Fatigue
- A high heart rate
- Heavy breathing
These all are the common symptoms related to the high metabolism.
Another way of elevating the metabolic rate is there that is being used by the bodybuilders and fitness models. The name of that method is Clenbuterol that is a sort of drug. It causes the same symptoms that one can found in an elevated metabolism rate just like, feeling of fatigue, high heart rate, thirst and heavy breathing etc.
However, most of the people go with a teaspoon of cinnamon or they think that can boost up their metabolism rate by taking a cup of green tea that all are fake things.
Having a thirst, swat and tiredness, these are the major symptoms of an elevated metabolic rate. However, a fact is still there that, having a short increase in metabolic rate is good for the body but enhancing it from 50 to 100 percent is neither good for your health nor for your body.
- “Starvation Mode”
The theory of “Starvation Mode” deals with a common saying, which is related to the fact that if you really want to lose some weight, then in spite of strict dieting, one should keep on eating some foods on the regular intervals. When the body enters in a starvation mode, then it slows the speed of his metabolism and it speeds up only when it gets some amount of calorie.
However, as per a reliable research it is found that people used to have just few amount of calorie that brings no change in their metabolism. The fact is there that it is a hard task to achieve the stage of starvation mode.
So it is possible to lose weight with any diet without worrying about slowing down your metabolism, even with fasting diet, until this is a diet you are able to follow in long term.
- Crossing the stage of 6 meals in a day
The method of having only six meals in a day as a way of weight losing was started with the bodybuilders. However, the method became much poplar in just short amount of time because it was quite easy for all the people. Moreover, this idea was promoted by the bodybuilder that is why, people started to following it in a huge number.
However, in the days of its introduction, it was liked by most of the people but after some time, people got bored by it because it was hard to them to follow same kind of schedule for few weeks and that is why, they started taking food supplements.
- Fault in estimating the burn calories
It is a fact that exercises helps in burning a good amount of calories. However, overestimation of the burnt calorie can be there. Hence, a proper estimation of the burnt calorie can help you in various ways. It can be understood by this following fact.
An individual regularly walks 5 miles in a day and it helps him in reducing the 500-calorie. However, if he completes his walk in just one hour and he keep on doing this sort of exercise for over a week, then he surely can do a better walk as compared to his previous form of walk and it can give him much better results.
Therefore, these all are the five common myths and their solutions that can help a person in effective weight losing. Therefore, if you are facing any out of these myths, then get rid out of it now.
