Fat Loss Myths

 Here's a good use of information from BMWW
"Many ridiculous myths and misconceptions about exercise and dieting for weight loss have created widespread confusion, fat loss failures and a subsequent lack of true, long term fitness success in the mass population.

In this article, I will dispel these falsehoods to clear the way for a clean mental slate upon which we will place the foundation of your new belief system.

* Myth Number One: In order to be strong and fit, I must have good genetics from my parents.

Reality Check: Good genetics is a widely misused term. In short, your genetics are what you make of them. While it is not possible for all men to look like Mr. Universe or all women to look like Miss America, we all possess a vast range of genetic variations.

Which end of your genetic range you exist in is mostly a function of your nutrition, exercise and lifestyle habits."

  2. "Myth Number Two: In order to become and stay fit, I have to spend 2 ½ hours at the gym every day."

    In many cases, anything over an hour is a waste of time.. many people tend to rest WAY to much, leading to "longer" trainingsessions.
    1 hour intense workout about 4 times a week is enough to lose a lot of weight! :)

  6. "Which end of your genetic range you exist in is mostly a function of your nutrition, exercise and lifestyle habits." Is that really true? Wouldn't genetics play a factor in how easy or difficult it is to gain muscle mass for instance?
