5 Common Fitness Myths that could be Fooling You.
3️⃣If the Scale Increases You Need to Eat Less The Truth: When people picture a weight loss graph in their mind they like the idea of it appearing as a consistent downhill slope, when the scale doesn’t decrease each day they automatically think they are doing something wrong, which typically results in the response, ‘I need to eat less’. Healthy weight loss is approx 1lb per week, which means your weight loss graph will most likely look more like a beating heart on a heart rate monitor. Day to Day fluctuations are completely normal, in fact, if the scale decreases every day then there is a good chance that you arent eating enough. 🏽Yes, you need to be in a caloric deficit to lose weight but you still need to hit your daily intake of nutrients. Never skip meals, When you do your body may turn to muscle for fuel source instead of fat, health concerns and disease can arise, run low on nutrients, decrease in strength and energy, more likely to binge, messes with you metabolism, etc. Many Factors cause these day to day fluctuations such as hormones, stress, sleep, medication, weigh in time, alcohol, etc. If the scale does a high jump b/c of a splurge do not reduce your calorie intake, get back on track and be consistent. Calories, Sodium, Water, and digestion can cause these jumps. It should disappear in a day or two after getting back to your regular eating and exercise schedule. Remember: Be consistent, take measurements and use the scale as a tool to help guide you in your fitness, don’t rely too heavily on its number.
