With obesity now an epidemic in this country more and more people are looking for ways to lose weight and find diets that will work. Many weight loss myths hinder the process for most people who are starting out. Most think that reducing calories is the way to go but if you reduce calories your bodies metabolism will just readjust itself to what your caloric intake is. People also think that they can spot reduce fat in the belly or thighs but in truth if you lose weight you will burn fat every where and you can not lose it in just one spot.

A proper diet is important but exercise is also a must if you want to lose weight. But you do not need to make it an everyday grueling workout routine. Aerobic exercise like walking, running, or biking are all good ways to get started but a weight lifting workout is also important. When most people think of weight lifting they think of being in the gym with massive amounts of weight on a barbell but you do not need to kill yourself to build muscle. Also by building muscle you will burn more fat because muscle will burn calories while the body is at rest.

So cutting back on food is not necessary to losing weight but if you eat more meals with smaller amounts of food at each meal you will help you body process the calories better. With all the silver bullet weight loss claims out here it is important to remember that nothing new in the diet world has come up in a long time. Proper diet and exercise is the most important ingredients to weight loss and keeping it off.
