Do you believe any of these?
In conjunction to an article we have published months ago, we have decided to compile another batch of myths that concern people who wish to burn fat. Previously, we have discussed the myths of dieting, and for this article, we’ll tackle the various myths that people believe about burning fat; not necessarily about dieting, but more about the things people believe to actually lose fat.
We firmly believe that the only way to burn fat is to work on your metabolism with added physical activity. The amount of calories you burn should always be greater than the calories you consume to burn fat. Despite how simple that idea is, there are people who still believe that there are hacks to losing fat. Here are 4 burning myths you should be aware of:
- Vibration loses fat
Back in the 90s and early 2000s, vibration belts are marketed on home TV shopping networks to sell the idea that shaking your fats would make them magically go away. These products draw their inspiration from the vibration belts sold in the 50s. Obviously, these vibration belts do not burn fat, nor do they shape your body in the way you want to.
- Sauna burns fat
If you’ve seen the infomercial for “personal sauna” machines, you would have thought that it actually works. In fact, if you’d test one at home, you might even be convinced. These products work by increasing the heat to force your body to sweat. After several minutes on the personal sauna, it would have you convinced that you’ve lost fat once you step on the scale. However, the only thing that you’ve lost is sweat. Your body does not excrete fat through your skin. It’s different from the oils that your body naturally excretes through your skin.
- Doing cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach
People believe this myth based on the assumption that the calories you eat gets absorbed as fat – that’s true, but it doesn’t mean that you have to do your cardio workouts on an empty stomach. If anything, doing cardio on an empty stomach would lessen your energy, resulting in a less-than-impressive output. Consider the idea that everything counts – whether you consume your calories before or after your workout. What’s important is making your calories count. Eat before your workouts to ensure that you get energy from the food you eat. If you’re consuming calories anyway, consume it in a way that would benefit you.
- Negative calories
Some people think that some types of food actually make your body consume more energy in digesting them than the actual energy that it gives your body. Included in the list are foods like apples and bananas. However, there’s no such thing as a negative calorie food. Your body may exert more effort in digesting some types of foods, but that doesn’t mean that the food you consume gives you less of what you actually use.
