GETTING FIT SERIES: EATING RIGHT

Intertwined Events is partnering with Cal Coast Fitness to bring to you the ways in which to get fit and lead a healthy life – doesn’t hurt since beach season(and weddingseason!!)is quickly approaching! Below we debunk the dieting myths that are keeping you from losing weight:

1. Eating Low-Fat: Stop buying foods that are marked as low-fat or fat-free. They only save you a few calories, but replace harmless carbohydrates with low performing ones that cause a sugar rush then a rebound hunger.

2. Eating Free Restaurant Food: It isn’t free, you will pay for these breadsticks, chips, and biscuits in excessive calories and fats!

3. Skipping Meals: Skipping meals has the reverse effect of what people think it does; it actually increases your odds of obesity – especially skipping breakfast. Skipping meals slows your metabolism and boost hunger that puts your body into prime fat-storage mode.

4. Eat Off Small Plates: When you opt for a large plate while eating it translates to more food, more calories, and more body fat. Keep servings in check by choosing smaller serving dishes.

5. Eating Too Late: Eating after 8PM does not provide your body with enough time to digest food properly; therefore it is too busy burning off a big meal while you sleep than flab!
