Weight Loss myths continued

 

As discussed in our previous post, one of the most difficult things about weight loss is the amount of misinformation available. If we do not have access to reliable and well-founded information, it will be difficult to make the choices we need to in order to become healthier. Previously we talked about how often times people have unrealistic expectations about how long healthy weight loss will take. If you want to make a real change in your life, make sure that you do it the right way. Losing weight in a healthy way will take a while. In this post, we will address another myth, which is the myth that your weight is a direct reflection of your willpower.

Debunking Weight Loss Myths

 

One of the most commonly discussed subjects in current society is weight loss. We often hear health experts, doctors, celebrities, and others in the public eye talking about everything from the damaging effects of obesity, to their preferred method to losing weight. But weight loss is not always easy. Millions try to lose weight every year, but many are unsuccessful. Because of the combination of pressures that are on people to be thinner, there are also huge industries devoted to making people not only lose weight, but also look like they have. Because of this, there is a lot of misinformation spread about weight loss. Many products are designed not to allow you to decrease your pant size, but lighten your pocketbook.

This post will focus on the first of several myths about weight loss.

We’re Halfway There
