Harry Sandhu is a fitness trainer having lived and worked in Australia for more than two decades. In India on a mission to curate fitness coaching and make it accessible to everyone, Harry on HappyTipsy talks about food myths.
He takes on myths like eating in smaller portions can reduce your weight, avoiding carbs at night will help you to reduce your weight, etc and helps us understand what is an effective way to have a healthy body.
Myth 1: Dividing your three meals of the day into smaller portions and having them more frequently will lead to fat loss. This is categorically incorrect. Eating smaller portions and more frequently doesn’t have any impact on losing body fats.
Myth 2: Eating carbs at night will have an adverse effect on your body weight. No… it doesn’t matter if you have carbs at 9 am or 2 pm or at night for dinner. There is no scientific evidence to say that having carbs at night will have an adverse effect on the body.
Myth 3: This is for the lovely ladies out there that weight training is going to make you bulkier. This is incorrect. Weight training is far more important for ladies as women are more prone to certain health issues like Osteoporosis than men. Moreover, women don’t have the right quantity of hormones like testosterone to build muscles.
Myth 4: Protein diet will somehow cause kidney disease. That’s completely incorrect.
Myth 5: Supplements during the training contains steroids or other ingredients which are unhealthy for the body. No.
