the top weight loss myths. Now the reason this came is because recently, a patient came
to me and said, “Hey, you know what, I think if I lose weight I’m going to feel so much
better. And I’m going to be just happier about my body and everything.” And I said, “Well
yeah, I agree with that.” And then the next thing I said is, “Well what is your plan?”
And unfortunately, her plan was basically, all of these different weight loss fad things
that were going to set her down the wrong path and set her up for failure. And I thought
to myself, if she’s struggling with this, I bet a lot of other people are as well. So
let’s go ahead and discuss some of the top weight loss myths and things that you need
to avoid. First, eating breakfast is going to boost
your metabolism. You eat this big great breakfast in the morning and then it’s going to boost
your metabolism, so you burn fat all day long. Well this couldn’t be further from the truth.
As a matter of fact, this makes life a whole lot more difficult, because you eat that big
breakfast, you have to watch more about the calories, or really track the calories you’re
eating throughout the rest of the day. It makes things more complicated. You know what
makes things easy, especially when it comes to weight loss, and gets you great results?
Skipping breakfast, doing intermittent fasting, burning fat all morning long, and then breaking
your fast in the afternoon. It makes it so that you’re automatically consuming less calories
throughout the day, and it’s going to help you get better results. So like easy. I don’
t like to make things complicated. Intermittent fasting is one of the fastest ways to not
only lose weight, but make the whole weight loss process less complicated. Fat makes you fat. Now this couldn’t be further
from the truth. This has been peddled from the dietary industry for so many years. And
it couldn’t…it’s just so false! First of all, fat is good to consume. Good fats are
not only going to be satiating, and help you consume less calories throughout the day.
But they’re also going to even help you burn fat. Now the other thing about good, healthy
fats, is they’re absolutely necessary for your overall bodily function. Your nervous
system needs them, your brain needs them, your brain needs these good fats, you need
these good fats. So don’t buy into this “fat makes you fat.” For years, when I was growing
up, this was the only thing that was out there, “You gotta avoid fat if you don’t want to
get fat.” We know that that’s false. Don’t buy into that. Good healthy fats are going
to really help you lose weight. Now simply eat less and exercise more. Now,
this is bad advice because, first of all we want to make sure that we’re eating good quality
foods. It’s not just about eating less. And the other thing about this is that, when it
comes to exercise and nutrition, it’s a 50/50 thing. If you’re trying to lose weight, you
can’t just do exercise and you can’t just do the nutrition part of it. You need to do
both. So you need to focus on a good healthy diet and also exercise together, and that’s
how you’re going to get the best results. Follow a weight loss diet and eat diet foods.
A couple of things about that, first of all, a lot of these diet foods are total garbage
and a lot of these diet foods are loaded with things like artificial sweeteners; like sucralose
or event these artificial sweeteners, like aspartame. Now the other thing that I don’t
like about follow a weight loss diet, is that, when we look at the weight loss diets, they’s
in more cases are just total garbage, okay. The reason that most people fail with them
is because it sets them up with unsustainable practices. I can’t tell you how many times the local
hospital has worked with my patients and said, “Well, you know what, we’re going to help
you lose weight.” And so they put them on this big fad weight loss diet plan. They’re
paying a fortune for these pre-packaged meals. And they lose 20, 30, 40 pounds. Guess what?
The come off of them because the can no longer afford the meals and they gain all the weight
back, okay. Don’t buy into this stuff. You want to just follow a good ketogenic diet
or low carb diet. Basically, the difference is, a low carb diet will just offer you a
little bit more carbs to consume on a daily basis than the keto diet will. So what you want to do is focus on those diets.
Don’t buy into all of these pre-packaged foods, and all these things that are just designed
to empty your wallet. Like I said, “The weight loss industry is awful!” The reason it’s awful
is because they’re just emptying people’s pockets because they’re preying on people’s
emotional wants, and there’s a huge lack of integrity when it comes to the weight loss
industry out there. So don’t be a part of it and just do some of these things I’m telling
you in this video. Now the other thing I want to do is if you want to learn more about like
intermittent fasting or ketogenic diet, I’ll put links for all the different resources
in the description below. Get weight loss supplements. So weight loss
supplements. You know, so many people say, are going to help you lose that weight. Well,
this is false. Most of the weight loss supplements that even work are doing it by the basis of
placebo. And so, when we look at weight loss supplements, once again, huge, big thing,
that’s preying on people’s emotional wants, and it’s just a big lack of integrity in this
area. They don’t work, and I’m not a fan, and I just hope you don’t go that route. Now
if you want to use some different supplements, focus on the basics. A good multi-vitamin
and mineral, focus on a good fish oil, focus on probiotics. Science says again and again
that these are going to fulfill some of your basic needs. And so, focus on that, but don’t
do this stuff. Next, everyone loses weight equally. Okay,
this is not true at all. Everybody shows up to the starting line of weight loss completely
different, okay. So let’s say your friends and co-workers are all trying to lose weight.
You know, this person over here, the weight loss just flies off. This person, it goes
pretty fast, and then you come along and you can’t get things to budge. Everyone approaches
weight loss differently. Some people are going to have a lot of inflammation. Some people
are going to have a lot of hormone dysregulation in the way of metabolic hormones. And then, the other thing is that some people
are going to be maybe suffering from a condition. If you’re female, you could have PCOS, which
is going to block weight loss. And so everybody’s going to show up differently. Here’s the thing,
keep your head up, keep a smile on our face, and keep charging forward, because the big
thing is persistence here. The big deal is that some people are going to have to go through
a healing period before they ever actually get to the weight loss period, okay. So if
your body has just kind of focusing on down-regulating inflammation, balancing out metabolic hormones,
let it do it’s thing and just keep persisting through ’cause the weight loss will come.
But everybody is going to lose weight differently, so don’t compare yourself to others. Next here is all calories are created equal.
This is something that I see a lot in the fitness industry, where they just say, “Calories
in/Calories out,” and you have to be at a calorie deficit, and that’s all that matters,
okay. No, all calories are not created equal. Eating a piece of white bread versus eating
a sweet potato, they’re both carbohydrates, right? But one has no nutrient quality and
one has a lot of nutrient density to it, okay. So all calories are not created equal. That’s
why following a good, healthy diet is very important. Like I said, ketogenic diet, low
carb diet. But don’t buy into, “It’s just about measuring your calories and eating whatever
you want.” That’s going to set you up for failure because a lot of these foods are highly
inflammatory, highly processed, and they’re going to mess you up. So follow a good, healthy
diet, and don’t buy into “All calories are created equal.” You just need to exercise more. So this is
something I find interesting, because a lot of people based on whatever is more comfortable
for them, they tend to go that route. So if eating healthier is more comfortable for you.
You tend to just really double-down on just eating healthy, and if exercise is more easy
for you, then you tend to just double-down on just, I’m going to exercise like a mad
person. And so, the thing is, is that when I talk to people and they say, “Here’s how
I’m going to focus on losing weight. I’m just going to focus on my diet.” I say, “Well,
you need to do exercise too.” And recently the person said, I’m just going to start exercising
more. I said, “Mm-mm, nope, hold off on exercising. Don’t do that because you’re going to go to
the gym. You’re going to feel terrible, and you’re going to want to give up.” Because
eating a low quality diet, being overweight, and pushing exercise hard, is going to be
very uncomfortable. So I said, “I want you to focus on your diet,
focus on nutrition, double-down there. After you do that for two weeks, then start exercising.”
And they said, “Okay, all right, that’ll work.” But here’s the deal, it’s a 50/50 thing. You
can’t just exercise and you can’t just focus on diet. You need to do both. And when you
look at, “I’m just going to keep exercising more,” it’s a bad idea. Because if you’re
going into that exercise without fixing up your diet first, you’re going to just be doomed
for failure. And so anyway, here are some of the top weight
loss myths. Like I said, I will put links to intermittent fasting and the ketogenic
diet, and some of my top weight loss techniques that I recommend all in the description below.
