Updated: Sep 10, 2020

When it comes to the world of fat loss, there are many opinions. This has led to many of these opinions being sold as facts, and it can be confusing for someone looking to get in shape, to be able to separate fact from fiction.

In this article, we will take a look at 3 of the biggest myths about fat loss.

Key Takeaways:

Carbs don't make you fat. Excess calories do.
If you are dieting and not losing fat, you are probably still overeating. You just don't notice it.
You can't spot reduce fat. Focus on good nutrition and exercise to reduce overall body fat percentage.

Today, its carbs and sugar.

Product marketers then use these scapegoats to sell us on a low-carb and low-sugar diet that is unnecessary, and often not even healthier.

The science here is clear.
