Dieting can be a tricky subject.  Some people aren’t sure how to do it quite right which can result in actually gaining weight or hurting your body.  There are certain myths that revolve around the topic of dieting and I wanted to clear up a few of them!  This way, you can get the most out of your dieting! 🙂

  • You should skip meals to lose weight faster.  DO NOT do this!  Skipping meals and eating less is not the way to diet.  There are certain diet plans that will sometimes have you eating more rather than less!
  • It’s not good to eat after 8 or 9 PM.  WRONG!  Whether it’s 3 pm or 3 am, your body will still metabolizing the calories you eat regardless.  Instead of not eating after 8, try to cut out that unhealthy midnight snack!
  • You have to go on a diet to lose weight.  This isn’t always true!  Simply eating healthy can still do the job just as well.  That being said, if you want to diet, find one that works for you!
  • You don’t have to exercise as long as you’re on a diet.  WRONG!  As I mentioned before, these two go hand-in-hand.  Of course, you can lose some weight if you’re solely dieting, but the best results happen when you’re both exercising and eating healthy!
  • As long as the label says low-fat, then you’re good to go.  WRONG!  Just because it’s low-fat doesn’t mean there aren’t other things you should be worrying about.  Labels can trick you so be careful!

Did you think these were true, as well?  I know I did before I actually looked into them!

Good luck! – Chels

For those of us that watch what we eat, we know that dieting can be tough. There are all sorts of books, apps, websites, etc. that give plans and tips on how you should be eating when trying to stay healthy. There are so many myths and misheard tips on dieting and I’m here to clear them up!

  • “Calorie count is the only thing you should be worried about when looking for healthy foods.” FALSE! Yes, calories are definitely a good thing to keep in mind, but other factors like the amount of sodium and fats are super important.Chelsea Crockett - Healthy Eating
  • “If you’re trying to be healthy, avoid large amounts of protein.” FALSE! Too much of anything is always bad, but your body needs protein to function. People often avoid meat thinking it’s bad for them but truth is, it’s not as bad as everyone thinks!
  • “It’s okay to eat carbs, you need them for energy.” FALSE. Carbs do give you energy, but they should be avoided if you’re really trying to lose weight. You can get your energy elsewhere!
  • “The less you eat, the skinnier you’ll get.” FALSE. I often hear people trying to lose wait by barely eating or exclusively eating only fruits and vegetables. Your body needs food, especially protein and other nutrients/minerals. This tip is extremely important!

I love eating healthy, so I always keep these tips in mind. I hope I helped bust any myths you thought were true about healthy eating!
