Myths On Weight Loss Charleston, West
Virginia Centers Fail To Mention (Usually)
centers for weight loss that Charleston,
West Virginia is home to don't always give
you the full story on how to get success
with your goals. Of course, we cannot speak
for everyone, but we are very reasonably
confident that most of the centers for
weight loss in the Charleston area tend to
leave out a few things.
all information is created equal. In fact,
it would be fair to say that these are
popular myths, misconceptions, or just flat
out lies concerning weight loss.
debunk a few of those myths that have been
passed around for so long. So often, these
are naturally missed by most weight loss
centers - in Charleston or anywhere.
Realizing the FACTs will help you out
MYTH: "Calories in equals calories on" -
Another way to say that myth is this: "If
the calories in are more than the calories
that you burn off, then you gain weight"
FACT: There are 3 ways that your body can
burn off or waste caloric energy without
conscious effort. Your body has a metabolic
set-point. The trick is not to fight it, but
learn how to work with it and re-train it.
Re-train it to be thin and comfortable.
Imagine how easy things can be if your body
has a new metabolic set-point and is
"wanting" to be at a lower weight. Most
weight loss programs do not have that.
MYTH: You have to diet in order to lose
FACT: This one is somewhat similar to the
previous myth. Starvation causes the
metabolism to go into slow-down mode - not
speed up. Result, weight gain - not loss.
"Diets don't work and they never will" -
Remington , Fisher, & Parent. If you
want to lose weight, you have to have an
add-to strategy. Again, most clinics for
weight loss tend to deal in regimentation
MYTH: The calories that you burn during
exercise equal the calories that you "can
FACT: We don't care how many calories you
burned during exercise. Forget about all of
that. Throw those numbers out the window.
Burn that. What we care about is how you
exercise. (For more tips on exercise contact
the center or see other articles.) The type
of exercise that you choose will determine
how well your body can burn calories for the
remaining 22 hours in that day.
MYTH: Losing weight is hard - it has to be
FACT: You've heard the phrase "no pain no
gain". There is truth to that statement,
too, but some people take it too far and
think that if it isn't hard, it's not worth
doing. Though it is a challenge, one should
learn how to make it fun and easy. Our goal,
of course, is to have fun while learning… to
make it easy while taking the actions. One
client, around her third or so session, said
something phenomenal. Sitting down, just
prior to getting started doing the session,
she turned and said "I feel bad for the
people who have never been overweight and
don't have the opportunity to go through
this process." She was referring to how much
fun it is and how eye-opening it was to be
there, at the center and going through her
weight loss process in her life. It was as
if to say "what a relief".
MYTH: Positive affirmations are good enough
FACT: Positive affirmations and positive
self-talk are wonderful, and we recommend
them, but just telling yourself that "you
are thin" or that "everything is ok" is not
enough. From that standpoint, if your mind
doesn't really believe them, then your mind
will try to prove them wrong, and it will
backfire. The same goes for hypnotic
suggestions. It's great to be given the
suggestion that "you feel fuller from less
food" or "you enjoy your food more while
eating less". But, if you will need
additional tools in order to make that work
MYTH: "I've tried so many times and failed;
this is just 'another' attempt"
FACT: If you find yourself giving in to this
myth, then you are probably in self-pity, or
self-sabotage, or both. Realize that failing
several times and believing that you cannot
do something because of that is called
failure expectancy. Failure expectancy
happens only when we do not remember to
change our approach. Your success at weight
loss is probably a lot more likely than you
realize. For example, if you are working
toward personal weight loss, Charleston,
West Virginia is a great place to live.
You should count yourself fortunate. Here,
we have giant walkways / paths around town
that you can use to walk. Those paths are
usually clean, well-designed, and they
adjoin to beautiful parks and recreation
areas. Also, in this locale, the climate has
seasons. So, that has a profoundly good and
useful effect on the human brain. Your
emotions are able to be controlled more
MYTH: "If I just try harder at the same
approach, it will work"
FACT: As an add-on to the previous myth, you
will need to change where you place your
efforts. Remember that to lose
weight naturally without dieting, it
is not will power. Again, you will need to
change your approach.
