Some Dieting Myths I Cannot Shake Off
After years of dieting or trying to, I can say that there are still myths about going on a diet that I have not busted out of my system yet. Even though I’ve progressed from thinking these myths are true to realizing these are myths that have no scientific basis whatsoever, there’s still a part of me that believe. What are these myths?
- Water weight is bad. The weighing scale can be very fickle and the digits it spews out whenever I weight are playing with my mind. I’ve read so many times that one must drink a lot of water daily during a diet, but the figure on the weighing scale is not making it easy. So, do I have to refrain from drinking water just so I can feel good while on the scale?
- Anything natural is safe. Of course, mother nature made everything pure, that much we know. But what we don’t know is that once a pulverized herbal slimming drug is placed in a capsule, the whole thing becomes artificial. Processing and the additives that have been used to create the drug may not be completely safe. So many references have cited the different ways drug contaminants can be collected in the body as toxins. I may need to learn more information about diet drugs to really clarify what side effects mean.
