The phrase “follow this diet and you will lose 5 kilos in a week” sounds very attractive. Surely you have read or heard various nutritional tips on how to lose weight.
Besides if you write in google the “how to lose weight” proposal, the options that will appear to you will be endless. However, searching the internet for how to lose weight is not always valid and safe. That’s why below I will list the most absurd weight loss tips.
Do not eat after 8 p.m.
If you do not eat because you are not hungry, it is not a state of deprivation. But if you do not eat after 20:00 because you think that this way you will lose weight, it is wrong.
Science claims that a calorie is a calorie, whether you take it in the morning or in the evening. This is why it is not the time you eat that matters, but the quantity. Simply put, what determines whether you gain, lose or maintain your weight is how much you eat and how much you exercise during the day.
Put hot pepper in all dishes
On the internet, pepper does almost everything: it reduces hunger, burns fat and even expels toxins. The pepper molecule that can make you lose weight would be piperine. However, the scientific literature states that one should consume 100 grams of pepper daily or 14 g. soup for 42 days to hope to see results. Pepper does not make you lose weight unless you are a mouse or a rat.
Eat an unlimited amount of these foods
On the internet, you can find lists of foods that are allowed at will, such as celery, cauliflower and cucumber. I find it difficult to understand the idea that some foods we can consume in unlimited quantities and some not. It is as if we are trying to ignore the feeling of fullness, which warns us when is the ideal time to stop eating.
Drink water with lemon every morning
Does lemon water remove toxins from the body? Unfortunately, that’s too good to be true. The liver, lungs, kidneys and skin are responsible for detoxifying the body. Our body has the ability to eliminate all toxins on its own and in general the substances that are useless to him.
So if you want to help your body eliminate toxins, just limit your exposure to harmful substances.
Sure, some people overflow with imagination when it comes to weight loss. However, it is a pity to omit the anatomical, physiological, biological and chemical concepts that explain all of our body’s reactions.
