Weight loss: 5 common myths

1. Physical exercise is sufficient for weight loss

Physical exercise contributes 20%. The remaining is diet management.

2. Fasting reduces your weight

During fasting, we burn calories and the minerals and vitamins that the body requires. In the long run, our body will be short of micro-nutrients. This will adversely affect our health.

3. Medicinal pills, belts and, vibrators can help to quicken weight loss

However, studies have shown that these are dangerous. Using them can damage our organs and cause for prolonged illness.

While avoiding oily food helps to reduce weight, it is equally important to avoid foods that have high carbohydrates, such as potato, roti, and rice.
