You’ve read so much advice about losing weight, but perhaps you’re still not sure what to do because the results weren’t as great as you were hoping. Chances are some of that advice has been completely wrong and you just need to be more critical. Here are three weight loss tips you can often hear that aren’t exactly true.
Drink Warm Lemon Water
Lemon water is often believed to be a weight loss remedy, especially when you drink it first thing in the morning. However, there’s no proof this actually works. You can still drink lemonade if you like it, but don’t expect any magic to happen.
Stop Eating Gluten
Unless you’re allergic to gluten, there’s no need to ban it from your diet. In fact, gluten is a protein and when it’s replaced with something else, that food is often less healthy. Read the labels and make informed decisions instead of falling for marketing tricks.
Completely Avoid Carbs
Carbs have an important role in your body and they are great for keeping you full for longer, so it’s not realistic nor healthy to avoid them completely. You can be mindful about the type of carbs you eat, as foods like sugar and white flour won’t keep you full for longer and will mostly provide empty calories. But foods like potatoes, rice, and whole-wheat bread are much better choices.
