4 belly fat myths debunked by experts

Belly fat is among the hardest fat to lose; however, a flat, toned stomach is possible with the right diet, exercise regimen, and Phentermine 37.5mg. Here, learn about common belly fat myths to help refine your weight loss efforts.

Myth #1: Avoiding Fat Entirely Helps Lose Belly Fat

The body needs healthy fat sources to thrive, so cutting out all fat is not the best option.

“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,” says Maria A. Bella, MS, RD, CDN and founder of Top Balance Nutrition.

Myth #2: Nuts Are the Enemy

Nuts are among the healthy fats you should eat.

“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 Jackie Newgent, RDN. “In fact, the FDA recently announced they are reevaluating the term ‘healthy’ as it applies to foods with good-for-you fats, like pistachios. 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.”

Myth #3: Exercise Alone Creates Flat Abs

Diet is key to losing belly fat.

“Everyone is born with abdominal muscles that vary in shape and look, and exercise will only help to develop the muscle itself,” says Bella. “Eating a clean, balanced diet will help in fat loss around the abdominal muscles and help them to show through.”

Myth #4: All Seed Oils Are Healthy

Processed and industrial seed oil like corn, cottonseed, soybean oil, and peanut oil can negatively affect our ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fats,” says Shelly Malone, MPH, RDN, CBNP. “This can lead to chronic inflammation, which is a contributor to resistance weight loss, and they can contain GMOs that harm the gut microbiome.” Opt for healthy oils like flaxseed oil, olive oil, avocado oil, and hemp seed oil.
