Common weight loss mistakes
There are a few common weight loss mistakes made by everyone, especially if they are first starting out. It is best to recognize these mistakes upfront so you know what’s in store and can do your best to avoid them.
- Never starve your body: You may think by eating less food you will lose the weight you so desire. Well in a sense this is true, but cutting calories and food intake will have adverse affects. The weight loss will include muscle mass and increase your health risks. By not getting the nutrients your body requires you are putting your health at risk.
- Over the counter diet pills: Just because it claims to help you shed 10 pounds in one week doesn’t mean it’s true. Be on the lookout for weight loss products and pills that seem to be good to be true, because chances are it is.
