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.

How to make perfect eyebrows

 Sprancenele mele sunt destul de rare si oricat am incercat sa le fac frumoase si dese nu am reusit. Chiar daca am un machiaj reusit, daca sprancele nu sunt accentuate, ceva lipseste si pare in neregula per total. Fardurile de sprancene nu sunt intocmai preferatele mele desi stiu ca multe fete le prefera. Astazi vreau sa va arat un gel pentru sprancene achizitionat recent, care-mi place foarte mult : DipBrow gel de la Anastasia Beverly Hills. Este un gel de sprancene pigmentat, are acoperire buna, eu aplic putin produs si pentru mine este suficient, este rezistent la apa - dupa cateva minute de la aplicare nu se mai ia usor, nu curge,  si ofera un aspect natural si mat sprancenelor. Vine in varianta mini si full size, eu am luat varianta mini si il folosesc de cateva luni, insa nu zilnic. Dar este genul de produs care rezista destul de mult. Periuta face aplicarea foarte usoara, poti chiar sa dai putin forma sprancenelor cu ea. Dar se poate achiziona separat orice perie de sprancene

3 Amazing Uses of CBD Oil

Today, this  beneficial compound is present in various products, ranging from cookies to nasal sprays to even  burgers. Given its numerous advantages, there is no doubt that the oil will keep growing in popularity in  the future.

Unlike THC, which is the other  primary compound in Cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not alter the working  of the brain to produce a “high” as THC does. It does, however, affect various body processes to alleviate  certain conditions. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the cannabis plant has been used for   medicinal purposes since 750 B.C . Well, here are three key benefits you stand to gain by using CBD oil.   CB

      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.
