This is a very common myth related to fat loss.Your body needs energy to work 24/7 .For fat loss you should eat a healthy balanced diet that will give your body continuous energy to burn fat and boost metabolism.So you need to stop following this myth for fat loss.

  1. Weight loss and Fat loss are one and the same thing

You need to understand that weight loss and fat loss are two different things ,however they both are related to each other but that doesn’t gives you guarantee  that if you are losing weight then also you are losing fat, one of the greatest fat loss myth.

 

  1. Spot Reduction

No exercise or workout routine will ever give you spot reduction for fat loss.Whenever you will lose fat you will lose it from all over your body but not from a particular spot.However doing a exercise for a particular spot or area will strengthen that but that doesn’t mean it will burn fat only from that area.

 

  1. Fat will turn into muscle

This is very common notion among gym goers that with span of time their Fat will turn into muscle. You need to understand fats are stored  in the form of fatty acids while muscles are made up of muscle fibres.No magic pill is gonna do this for you .

 

  1. HIIT is the only way to go for fat loss

This one is one of the most trickiest part .Know that you don’t have to cut your calories excessively for rapid fat loss.You need to strategise how to cut your calories from your daily calory intake so that your metabolism doesn’t get screwed up.

 

  1. Drinking cold water will help your burn fat

I seriously don’t know from where it came but I have seen many people doing this.The theory they give is body will need to adjust its temperature after drinking cold water and in this process body will Be burning fat but its an absolute myth.

 

  1. Higher the frequency of cardio higher will be the fat loss

Don’t ever think spending countless hours doing cardio will help you in burning fat.You need to lift weights also along with proper routine of cardio to burn the stubborn fat around your body.
