Three Incredible Lies in Mainstream Training & Nutrition
by The Poliquin Group

Excerpt from the article.  Check out the entire article HERE.

Lie #1: Aerobic Exercise Will Help You Lose Fat

The Truth: Aerobic Exercise is A Fat Trap

The effect of regular aerobic exercise on body fat is negligible. High-intensity intermittent exercise, which is anaerobic rather than aerobic in nature, is much more effective.

Let it be said that if you are new to exercise, aerobic training can help you lose a small amount of fat in the short term, but research shows the benefits are rarely sustainable. In the long run, aerobic exercise appears to be utterly useless.

Lie #2: Low-Fat Diets Are Best For Fat Loss

The Truth: Low-Fat Diets As Used By The Mainstream Will Harm Your Health

Low-fat diets are NOT best for fat loss. Higher protein, higher fat dietary models tend to be much more effective for fat loss because they favor protein and fat, both of which are very filling and help you avoid hunger.

They also prevent the severe reduction in metabolic rate that comes from low-fat, calorie-restricted eating because you won’t lose as muscle with adequate protein. In addition, low-fat diets require a high intake of carbohydrates, causing worse insulin health.

They make your body rely only on glucose (or sugar) for its energy source. Therefore, your body can’t access its fat stores to burn them because it prefers to use glucose for energy, making it very difficult to lose body fat.

Lie #3: Chemicals Don’t Make You Fat & Detoxification Isn’t Necessary

The Truth: BPA & Other Chemicals Dramatically Increase Body Fat & Diabetes Risk

Contact with chemicals such as BPA, phthalates, and parabens will make you fat. Scientists believe the reason is that these chemicals alter hormone function when they are ingested in the large quantities present in modern society.
