3 Weight Loss Myths

3 Weight Loss Myths Keeping You STUCK

Are you confused about how to effectively lose weight? Trust me – you’re not the only one. I see this over and over again in the people who come to me for guidance, and in general. So today I wanted to share the top three myths that keep people stuck.

3 WL Myths

Myth #1

Eat less, exercise more.

Old theory is that if you aren’t at your optimal weight, there are only 2 factors to consider: amount of exercise and quantity of food. This is a myth that has (thankfully!) been dispelled. To lose weight, you do not need to starve yourself (in fact, that is counterproductive), nor must you over-exercise (ditto)

In fact, my clients realize pretty quickly that they are NOT hungry – yet they have more energy and the weight is dropping off. WITHOUT EXERCISE (we add that in later).

 

Myth #2

All carbs are bad. 

The low carb way of eating started with the Atkins diet, and has since been modified, villanizing all carbs. It is not true that all carbs are bad, in fact quality carbs are part of my PFF success combo. Protein + (healthy) Fat + Fiber (healthy carbs). This combination will leave you satiated and create an environment of health and weight success! There are many ins and outs to this, more than I can go into today. (Learn more)

 

Myth #3

I should be able to do this on my own.

It’s very very (very) rare to see someone create the health and happiness they desire without guidance, support, strategy and outside counsel. 

Even (especially) the most capable, accomplished, intelligent people recognize the importance of mentors. Most of my clients have been highly successful in business and other parts of their lives.

If this stuff was easy, I wouldn’t be writing this email (because these topics wouldn’t be issues, and everyone would be at their ideal weight and feel great most of the time).

 

Why is weight loss so challenging? Quite simply, because there are so many bio-individual factors involved in losing weight. For instance, your gender, age, activity level, quality of sleep, genetic predisposition, hormonal balance (or imbalance), presence of underlying infections, overt stress and hidden stressors (such as food sensitivities), toxic load, your mental landscape, self-care and rejuvenation, and of course the quality of food you ingest…and that’s just off the top of my head! 

 

The first step is to educate yourself by investing time and money (we put our efforts where our money goes!) in support and guidance.

 

That’s it for today…make it amazing!

Love, Marcie
