Weight-Loss Misconceptions That Could Be Holding You Back

Staying healthy, in particular losing weight, can be extremely difficult. One thing that makes it even harder is the common myths and misconceptions that have been spread around in this modern, health-conscious society of ours. Let these sink in, and it can really hold you back. Here, we’ll list some of the common misconceptions about losing weight, and reveal the truth behind them.

Desserts Are a No-Go
Good news: you don’t have to starve yourself of desserts anymore! The truth is there’s room in your diet for any kind of food, even those that health-conscious people tend to avoid like the plague. As long as you’re keeping tabs on your caloric intake, you’ve got nothing to worry about. It may feel easier to quit sweet treats altogether, but depriving yourself of the desserts you love can actually up your chances of binge eating, and in turn, losing faith in yourself.
Carbs are Fattening
It’s true that if you’re insulin resistant, your body will find it easier to convert carb calories to fat than to use it as energy. However, the fact remains that carbs, including starches, are less dense in calories gram for gram than many other kinds of food. It’s important to understand the whole good carbs vs bad carbs issue. If you’re loading any starchy foods with fattening additives – sour cream or butter on potatoes, for instance, or eating them in copious quantities, then your caloric intake can really creep up on you.
Skipping Meals Makes You Lose Weight Fast
It follows that eating less means that you’ll put on less weight. However, all the evidence shows that people who skip meals (particularly breakfast) actually tend to be heavier than people who don’t. Aside from increasing the risk of overeating later, skipping meals can make you low on energy, and deprive your body of the important nutrients it needs to function properly. Eating in your regular routine, but taking the time to calorie-count and plan your meals, is the best approach.
It’s What You Eat, Not How Much
The kind of food you eat, and the portion sizes you take it in, are both very important. However, recent research has shown that the number of calories in your food tends to be much more important than where they come from. For example, a bagel might seem healthier than a donut on the surface, but most dense bagels contain the same calories as six slices of bread! Provided you’re not eating too much fat in the rest of your diet, the donut wins!
Exercise Enough, and You Can Eat What You Want
Yes, exercising will burn off calories, and contribute to you trimming excess weight. However, no matter how much you exercise, it’s not going to make much difference when you’re not backing it up with good nutrition. Losing weight through exercise alone is extremely difficult. Even if you do manage to slim down on a bad diet, your health will still be in a poor state in other, less visible ways.

Review Cerave Foaming Cleanser si Cerave Moinsturing Lotion

 Buna fetelor, Astazi vreau sa va scriu despre un brand descoperit anul trecut care imi place foarte mult pentru partea de ingrijire a pielii : Cerave. Cerave este un brand cu produse create impreuna cu dermatologi, care au dezvoltat o gama de produse fara iritanti, bazate pe ceramide similare pielii pentru a oferi o varianta de ingrijire care reface bariera pielii si a oferi hidratare pentru o perioada mai lunga. Ceramidele formeaza bariera de protectia a pielii, mentin hidratarea si compun 50% din stratul de lipide. Gelul de curatare pentru piele normala si grasa Cerave (Foaming Cleanser) este produsul care mi se potriveste cel mai bine pentru a-mi curata tenul dimineata si seara. Contine trei ceramide esentiale, acid hialuronic, elimina excesul de sebum , curata usor si profund impuritatile si machiajul, nu blocheaza porii. Pentru machiajul ochilor, recomand totusi sa folosim apa micelara inainte. Formula este fara parfum deci este potrivita si pentru tenul sensibil.Mie im

Black Friday 2021 pe Notino

      Perioada perfecta pentru cumparaturi a venit mai repede luna aceasta,  notino black friday a inceput pe data de 8 Noiembrie si va tine pana in data de 28. Este ocazia perfecta mult asteptata de a cumpara seturi cadou pentru Craciun , parfumul special pe care si-l doreste iubita/sora/mama ta sau pur si simplu atentii pentru cei dragi din viata ta. Eu am facut deja prima comanda pe Notino deoarece am prins reducere de 40% la produsele Dove, produse pe care le folosesc si eu si stiu ca am si prietene care folosesc. Nu le-am luat pentru mine, le-am luat pentru a le face cadou, iubesc sa daruiesc cadouri la fel de mult pe cat iubesc sa le primesc. Tot acum am luat si setul pentru maini de la Baylis & Harding, imi place foarte mult ambalajul, arata luxurios si cred eu ca va fi un cadou dragut. Luna aceasta am 3 aniversari asa ca o sa mai fac cateva comenzi, deja am urmarit reducerile si sunt consistente. Daca imi citesti blogul, stii deja cat imi plac parfumurile si nu cred ca est
