Trying for weight loss? Be aware of the Myths & Facts.

Studies reveal that weight is a common concern and people around the world try to lose weight. People take advises, follow internet tips, try different weight loss packages available online, and many other means to reduce their weight. Many a times, the urge to shed weight leaves psychological impact on the mind of the person who ultimately forces himself or herself to go for unhealthy means of weight loss for quick results. This is not good and will leave long lasting effects on the health. 
The point is not WEIGHT LOSS; it is about maintaining a HEALTHY WEIGHT. So, when you are trying to shed those extra flabs on your body, be sure what to do to achieve a healthy weight rather than reducing weight that adversely affects you. Whatever means you adopt, keep yourself informed about its procedures, side effects, results, and the expected time of getting the results. 
Here are a few MYTHS & FACTS about weight loss you must be informed of:

Trying for Weight Loss | Online Weight Loss Tips | Diet Tips

Best Online diet tips for fast weight loss:
#1. Remove Fat Completely From Your Diet
No. We need a little fat for our body to function. It forms the structure of our cells and eating fat gives a sense of fullness. However, we must limit the intake of fat as it has double the calorie of what same amount of protein or carb would give.
#2. Snacking should be avoided
No. Snacking between meals actually prevent you from binging and having all the calories at a time. There is no point in starving the body which ultimately compels you to devour whatever comes in front of you. The main reason snacks have a bad repo in weight reduction is the choices we make. Instead of going for chips, chocolates, candies, pastries and puffs, a planned snack box consisting of nuts, fruits, sprouts, or seeds will feed your hunger without increasing the weight.
#3. Don’t Diet. Exercising is enough
No. Dieting is needed. Exercise is just not enough as everything depends on your metabolism. You need to take care of what you eat and how much you exercise as per your age. The diet and exercise plan of a 25 year old is different from that of a 45 year old because the metabolism slows down as you age.
#4. Physical Activity Should Always be For Long Hours
No. You always need not sweat for long hours to see the results. Regular exercise in small portions also contributes a lot in weight reduction. If you allocate 150 to 300 minutes in a week for vigorous physical activity, it will gradually lead to weight control. According to experts, you can go for aerobics for 10 minutes or more at a time.
#5. Late Night Food Will Increase Your Weight
Body does not know when the food enters into it. You can have a little snack or food at night. The only thing is to keep a track on your calorie intake per day. If your late night meals are adding to the required calories then it will boost the weight gain. If you have divided the portions of calorie intake and a few calorie falls at night time as per the schedule then there is nothing to worry. 

CONCLUSION: Our body is an assembly of too many parts and systems having their own unique requirements. If you look back and analyze what you are feeding your body with, then you will discover that most of us overdo either with food, diet, exercise, stress, or work. Feeding our body with right amount and type of food and physical activity is very important to keep it in shape.  Good luck and have a healthy weight loss.
