A Personal Trainer Reveals the Biggest Myths About Losing Body Fat

When it comes to losing weight and shedding body fat, it's easy to get confused by all the information we're bombarded with on the internet every day. Scrolling through social media, reading blog posts, and hearing about the latest health crazes all give you mixed messages about how to actually lose weight and keep it off for good.

Personal trainer Max Weber, NASM, ACE, set out to debunk these common weight-loss myths with an Instagram post about how to lose fat. He revealed six ways to lose weight "according to the internet": drinking "magic" detox teas, 10-minute ab workouts, crash diets, using body wraps, endless cardio without strength training, and relying on supplements. Instead of these fads, Weber offered up how to lose body fat according to science: be in a calorie deficit, strength train, do some cardio, get quality sleep, be consistent, and have patience.

Although everyone's body is different and burns fat at a different rate, Weber's list of fat loss dos and don'ts proves that there's no shortcut to dropping weight and keeping it off. Ultimately, it's about eating well, exercising, getting enough sleep, and being patient with the process.
