Although i’ve gained a few pounds over the past year, I’m the strongest and fittest that I’ve ever been. Reply kdiarist on December 11, 2012 at 12:41 pm If cardio is not an only way to lose weight, what another form of exercise should I do to lose several of stones? It is great and surprised to see some of them are myths! K. kdotdiary.wordpress.com Reply John on December 11, 2012 at 2:05 pm I believe weight training helps too. Reply kdiarist on December 11, 2012 at 9:26 pm Ta! Reply Mariajose on December 11, 2012 at 7:41 pm Try doing high intensity workouts that include strength and cardio. They don’t have to necessarily be hour long workouts. My trainer does 30 minute-max strength workouts and then I do my cardio (for training purposes) at least 3 times a week. Reply kdiarist on December 11, 2012 at 9:27 pm Ta! Reply brianbikes on December 11, 2012 at 2:52 pm This just makes me not want to believe in anything. I think it is just best to keep consistent and chose eating heathy and exercising and a lifestyle choice and not a “program.” Thanks for posting. Reply justgetthrough on December 11, 2012 at 3:06 pm Have to dispute with Point 5; protein shakes are a great post workout supplement and there is feck all difference in the ‘quality’ – it’s still derived from actual food. Reply Randy Sandberg on December 11, 2012 at 3:06 pm LOL, myth #9 being that I actually used to believe it! Thanks for sharing this very eye opening infographic with us John. Reply savynaturalista on December 11, 2012 at 4:02 pm If I would have seen number 3 I would have had less of a heart attack after a 5 pound weight gain from lifting weights for 2 weeks… Reply lehorse on December 11, 2012 at 4:16 pm I must admit I did think #10 was fact as your body has to work harder to warm up when drinking iced water hence burning more Calories / fat Reply MikeW on December 11, 2012 at 4:25 pm Good myth busting post! On #4, the way I read it was that walking before breakfast after the body has metabolized all night long, and walking at a low intensity such that you can hold a normal conversation throughout the walk, burns more fat for your time. That’s a lot more specific. Reply jljohnson on December 11, 2012 at 5:42 pm Reblogged this on Idiot Runner Girl and commented: Interesting read….

I know when I was training for my first 1/2 I ate like a machine! While in my head I realized I couldn’t out run the burgers and fries part of me still justify it because I had never ran that far before. OF COURSE it was burning loads of calories! Haha… good thing I have since learned! Reply Mariajose on December 11, 2012 at 7:44 pm Love it! I used to slightly believe in some of these and I have a friend who continues to believe she can spot reduce and wants to bring me down with her. I’m still a bit confused on the protein shake myth. Do you know if that also includes when you use them as a meal replacement shake with fruits? Reply Cowboys and Crossbones on December 11, 2012 at 9:44 pm I’m sticking this on my fridge! Reply erin gets gone on December 11, 2012 at 10:38 pm I have friends who still go by treadmill/elliptical calorie counters. I don’t ever want to be a Debbie Downer, but I’ve definitely tried to debunk that for them!

Reply fishflyruns100 on December 12, 2012 at 9:49 pm Thanks for posting this chart John. Reply Gareth Davies on December 12, 2012 at 10:14 pm Disagree with five and to a certain degree six. Five. Whey protein is probably the most researched supplements and is good post workout and has high absorption. A meal with protein and carbs should be consumed within an hour of exercise. Six. There is a Reasonable amount of research that protocols like Poloquin Biosignature can help spot reduce fat.

(Now all we have to do is try to be disciplined enough to pay attention.) Reply Ms. L-P on December 13, 2012 at 3:02 pm This is a great infographic – I can’t believe how many of these myths I believed for so many years!
