MYTH:
CUTTING CARBOHYDRATES FROM YOUR FOOD CHOICES WILL HELP YOU TO LOSE FAT AND BE SLIMMER.

FACT:
• Low carb diets start with 20 grams or less per day…when everyone should be getting 120 grams per day.

• Cutting carbohydrates this drastically is dangerous. It can lead to metabolic syndrome by causing the person to have insulin sensitivity.

• The best idea is to take out, or at least cut back in, refined carbohydrates such as soda and white flour…going to whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
 

MYTH:
WITH THE RIGHT EXERCISE, YOU CAN GET RID OF TROUBLE SPOTS.

FACT:
• The truth is small muscle exercises for the arms do not reduce the size of any specific part of the body.

• There is no such thing as spot reduction. The genetic structure of a person’s body determines where fat will come off first.

• Only a good balance of proper large muscles exercises, cardio vascular work, and a balanced meal plan can achieve a healthy change in the size of anyone’s body…and it is the body that will choose which part it will reduce first.
