KATHMANDU, Dec 11: Are you tired of trying losing your weight but not being able to? It may be because you’re simply taking considerations into common myths about weight loss.
KP Lamsal, Executive Director from Diet Therapy Clinic is here to bust 5 common myths about weight loss and 3 ways which could help you to lose your weight.
Weight loss: the reduction of body mass either by physical exercise or reducing daily diet.
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.
4. Excessive physical exercise quickens weight loss

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.
