3. Diet is more important than exercise – Reality
It really is true that abs are made in the kitchen, and you can’t out-exercise a bad diet.
4. Potatoes make you fat – Myth
Potatoes are not bad for you! If they are loaded up with cheese and butter and then deep fried then yes, they will make you fat. But if you bake a potato and crack a little sea salt and maybe some ketchup you are getting the same craving fulfilled, it’s just a lot better for you.
5. Gaining a few pounds at the start of a diet and exercise regimen means it’s not working – Myth
People start to freak out when they start a diet and exercise program and their clothes feel a little tight. But it’s totally normal! When you start working out you are breaking microfibres of your muscles down and anytime you are breaking down those microfibres your body is going to swell. Focus on waist size, how your jeans fit, the way you feel, how much stronger you are in the gym – those are signs you are on the right track.
