Many of the millions of Americans who made a resolution to lose weight will get frustrated and give up before their goals are met because there is so much bad diet and exercise information that they’re depending upon, say nutrition and wellness experts. Experts “weigh in” on the 10 most popular diet and exercise myths, such as “crunches get rid of belly fat” and “fat is bad for you, no matter what kind.”

Dr. Diet weighs in:

It is common that some of the patients I see daily will come in believing diet related falsehoods that they thought were true and that have made them feel very pessimistic about losing weight. These myths can get in the way of a successful weight management program.

The Federal Trade Commission suggests that evaluating weight loss claims requires a healthy portion of skepticism. On their site titled, Weighing the Diet Ads/ Facts for Consumers, they review the most common false claims you will see in the media and what they really mean. This is a must read for anyone serious about wanting to diet smart:

"Lose weight without diet or exercise!"

Achieving a healthy weight takes work. Take a pass on any product that promises miraculous results without the effort. Buy one and the only thing you’ll lose is money.

“Lose weight no matter how much you eat of your favorite foods!”

Beware of any product that claims that you can eat all you want of high-calorie foods and still lose weight. Losing weight requires sensible food choices. Filling up on healthy vegetables and fruits can make it easier to say no to fattening sweets and snacks.

“Lose weight permanently! Never diet again!”

Even if you’re successful in taking the weight off, permanent weight loss requires permanent lifestyle changes. Don’t trust any product that promises once-and-for-all results without ongoing maintenance.

“Block the absorption of fat, carbs, or calories!”

Doctors, dieticians, and other experts agree that there’s simply no magic non-prescription pill that will allow you to block the absorption of fat, carbs, or calories. The key to curbing your craving for those “downfall foods” is portion control. Limit yourself to a smaller serving or a slimmer slice.

“Lose 30 pounds in 30 days!”

Losing weight at the rate of a pound or two a week is the most effective way to take it off and keep it off. At best, products promising lightning-fast weight loss are false. At worst, they can ruin your health.

“Everybody will lose weight!”

Your habits and health concerns are unique. There is simply no one-size-fits-all product guaranteed to work for everyone. Team up with your health care provider to design a personalized nutrition and exercise program suited to your lifestyle and metabolism.

“Lose weight with our miracle diet patch or cream!”

You’ve seen the ads for diet patches or creams that claim to melt away the pounds. Don’t believe them. There’s nothing you can wear or apply to your skin that will cause you to lose weight.
