I was watching the Today Show this morning and this is something they were talking about.
Weight loss myths
According to a new report in the New England Journal of medicine, the following are weight loss myths:
Myth #1- Rapid weight loss doesn't stick.
New research shows that rapid weight loss just might be what someone needs to feel motivated to keep going. And some people who lose weight rapidly, are able to sustain their longer than those that lose it slower.
Myth #2- Set realistic weight-loss goals.
Many people actually will respond to setting those higher goals. Everyone is different so don't feel bad if you want to set a high goal for yourself.
Myth #3- Sex is a good workout.
Sex doesn't burn a lot of calories. We actually need a long duration of low intensity workouts to lose weight. Average sex is six minutes so you'll have to increase that if you're using it to lose weight. LOL
