Changing How You Eat. How to Avoid the Pitfalls of Dieting.

As you may know, not fueling up with the right

nutrients can affect how well your body performs

and your overall fitness benefits. Even though

healthy eating is important, there are myths that

hinder your performance if you listen to them.

Below, you'll find some myth busters on healthy


1. Working out on an empty stomach.

If you hear a rumbling noise in your stomach, the

rumbling is trying to tell you something. Without

listening to them, you are forcing your body to

run without any fuel. Before you exercise or do

any physical activity, always eat a light snack

such as an apple.

. Relying on energy bars and drinks.

Although they are fine every once in a while, they

don't deliver the antioxidants you need to prevent

cancer. Fruits and vegetables are your best bets,

as they are loaded in vitamins, minerals, fluid,

and fiber.

. Skipping breakfast.

Skipping breakfast is never a good idea, as

breakfast starts the day. Your body needs fuel

as soon as possible, and without it, you'll be

hungry throughout the day.

. Low carb diets.

Your body needs carbohydrates for your muscles and

the storing of energy.

. Eating what you want.

Eating healthy and exercising doesn't give you an

all access pass to eat anything you want. Everyone

needs the same nutrients whether they exercise or

not, as well as fruits and vegetables.

. Not enough calories

Although losing weight involves calories, losing

it too quickly is never safe. What you should do,

is aim for 1 - 2 pounds a week. Always make sure

that you are getting enough calories to keep your

body operating smoothly. If you start dropping

weight too fast, eat a bit more food.

. Skip soda and alcohol.

Water, milk, and juice is the best to drink for

active people. You should drink often, and not

require on thirst to be an indicator. By the time

you get thirsty, your body is already running a

bit too low.

Changing how you eat is always a great step

towards healthy eating and it will affect how your

body performs. The healthier you eat, you better

you'll feel. No matter how old you may be, healthy

eating is something you should strive for. Once

you give it a chance, you'll see in no time at

all just how much it can change your life - for the


avoiding certain common mistakes can ensure a healthy diet and weight loss
