Why sex can not replace good training if you want to lose weight, and why the complete failure of carbohydrates is counterproductive – these myths go to healthy nutritionist Camilla Akerberg, writes the channel3.
The first scam: Sex is counted as a training
One of the most common myths is that a nice shoot between the leaves will burn as many calories as a kilometer and a half of a cross. A study published by PLOS ONE shows that men average 100 calories during sex and women – about 69 calories.
According to the survey, men burn an average of 4.2 calories per minute during sex, compared to 3.1 calories for women, according to Men's Health magazine. One study estimated that in the six-month-old sexual man about 30 years old, only 20 calories burn, which is only 14 more than just sitting on the couch and watching TV, reports Bodi + Soul.
Accordingly, the claim that sex can replace the sport and exercise is a complete misconception.
Another misconception: For a perfect blow, thousands of squats are needed
Camilla Akerberg assures that there are other ways to achieve the desired solid door instead of thousands of squat for hours.
"One thing is certain: there is no need for hundreds of squatters," says the Australian, who for years has avoided similar accusations of serious back injury. "They're a great exercise, but there are other enough varied moves for that purpose."
The third misconception: daily daily consumption of calories
Constant daily calorie counting is not healthy, even more to keep people up and not take long.
Fourth Misconceptions: Eat green vegetables with a complete ban on sugar and alcohol
Healthy diet contains a lot of vegetables, but only green does not last, Camilla claims. She believes that the menu for greenery, vegetables, fresh fruit, proteins, healthy fats and good carbohydrates is a key to long-term results.
"If you are too strict about yourself and completely deprive sugar and alcohol, staying only in green, the most likely outcome will give up eating and catching too much," said Camilla Ackerberg.
"It's important to have as many raw products as possible to avoid processed foods and low-nutritional value." Alcohol is acceptable from time to time and moderate – it stimulates hunger, "recalls an expert.
Fifth Misconception: A complete ban on all carbohydrates
You must have heard the magic in recent years that if you want to lose weight, you have to remove carbohydrates from your menu. Surveys support this claim somewhat, but a complete ban on this group can disrupt the balance.
Carbohydrates are an important source of energy, so that with the appropriate amount and quality they give the body a sense of satiety, and definitely helps in trying to lose weight.
Cinnamon, brown rice, whole grains, vegetables, dairy products and potatoes – these are some of the right sources of carbohydrates that provide long-lasting energy, helping to stabilize blood pressure. They also improve mood because they regulate hormones such as serotonin and insulin.
Complete carbohydrate deprivation is another danger, says Australian nutritionist Lindi Cohen. "Even if you take a kilogram of carbohydrates from your diet, you would not want to do it for the rest of your life, and usually after complete deprivation when you start eating a carbohydrate baby, you will quickly regain weight," she says.
