3 belly fat myths you need to stop believing

3 Belly Fat Myths You Need to Stop Believing | Weight Loss Plans NYC

Belly fat is widely regarded as some of the hardest fat to lose, not to mention fat that no one wants to deal with.

If you’re working on banishing the dreaded fat with help from Phentermine 37.5mg, learn about a few myths that could be injuring your efforts. 

Drinking Beer=Beer Belly

While drinking beer won’t help you shed pounds, the idea that it promotes a “beer gut” is simply untrue. The beverage itself isn’t the issue; rather it’s the empty calories you consume. Soda causes the same problem.

“Although, if you enjoy guzzling six-packs on a regular basis, then you do need to reconsider your beer drinking habits,” says Jackie Newgent, RDN. 

Nuts Make You Gain Weight

Nuts might contain fat, but it’s a healthy type of fat.

“Nuts have gotten a bad reputation for their total fat content, but nutrition science suggests that the quality—not quantity—of fat is what is most important to our health,” says Newgent. “In fact, the FDA recently announced they are reevaluating the term ‘healthy’ as it applies to foods with good-for-you fats, like pistachios,” Newgent continues. “What’s more, foods like in-shell pistachios may help you fool yourself into feeling full because the leftover shells may provide a visual cue for portions, potentially helping to curb intake.” 

If You Avoid Fattening Foods, You Won’t Gain Belly Fat

Healthy fat consumption is important to weight loss and overall health.

“Consuming a good amount of healthy fats are key to weight loss,” says Maria A. Bella, MS, RD, CDN. “Healthy fats like olive oil and avocado oil promote longevity, glowing skin, hair, and nails, and fight against cardiovascular disease and diabetes by keeping your blood glucose levels stable.”
