Fat Loss Myths Exposed
Are you aware of these fat loss myths?
• Calories don’t count.
• There is no benefit to eating more protein or fat rather than carbohydrates.
• Eating fat makes you fat.
• Eating small frequent meals will help lose weight more rapidly than the standard 3 meals a day.
• Eating big meals at night makes you gain weight.
• Eating carbohydrates early in the day gives you energy.
Anthony Colpo, a certified Australian personal fitness trainer, explains the truth or fallacy in each of these points in his book The Fat Loss Bible.
The bulk of Colpo’s book deals with nutrition, both what is wrong in the field and what is right. He also points out that nutrition and weight resistance exercise must work together to obtain the desired result.
I will admit that the lengthy appeal to scientific literature in his book can make for tough reading, especially for those who have no scientific background.
But to lose weight correctly, which loses fat and retains lean muscle, one has to buy into his approach.
It is possible to lose weight which includes lean muscle loss but be no more fit than before.
One of the results may be you will stop the nutritional approach and regain all your lost weight and perhaps more. Not good at all.
• What happens if you reach a plateau and can’t budge?
• What exercises are recommended?
• How do I lose fat and yet build muscle?
The author covers all these problems, including emotional and psychological road blocks, and what to do about them. And his aim is to get you to realize that weight loss, the healthy way, is a marathon, a doable life long approach.
He shows how to maintain your weight by means of calories, how to determine the calories to delete from your diet to maintain a reasonable weight loss.
A Medicare supplement newsletter gave credence to the value of exercise in older adults, especially weight training. After only 3-4 weeks of exercise I am amazed how I’ve improved. I realize I have to do it right, and I have a long way to go.
For women who are concerned about appearing muscular like men, the author assures women they will never look muscular and tells why.
An interesting comment by a female says she still looks like a girl even though following a rigorous program outlined by the body builder Colpo recommends in his book.
The author describes various body fat compositions. You can choose the percentage you want. Then change the calories ingested when you reach the desired body fat composition.
