4 Nutrition Myths That Are Destroying Your Fitness Achievements
1. You should avoid carbs to lose weight
Eating too much of carbohydrates, protein or fat may influence your weight gain but it's still important to consume carbs in order to perform good on workouts.
"Your liver and muscles store carbs as glycogen for immediate fuel, which is what makes your body hum most efficiently during exercise," explains nutrition scientist Lisa Davis, chief nutrition officer of Terra's Kitchen healthy recipe delivery service.
2. All protein bars are good source of protein
When you check the label and find protein there, it doesn't mean there is much of it. Usually, protein bars contain fewer than 5 grams of protein along with more sugar than a candy bar and the calories of a full meal.
3. You should eat immediately after workouts to recover
Of course, you need carbs and protein after exercising to recover. But sucking down a shake as you exit the gym isn't necessary, explains Chicago-based registered dietitian nutritionist Victoria Shanta Retelny.
4. Fasted exercise burns more fat
