5 Fitness Myths You Need to Forget

ccc
From
What Works What Doesn't

To be fit you need to stop letting myths like these hold you back.

1. Walking is not as effective as running.
Sure, you'll burn about twice as many calories running for 30 minutes than walking for 30 minutes. But if a runner and a walker cover the same distance, they burn about the same number of calories. So if you're willing to take the 'slow route,' you'll likely lose just as much weight. In fact, studies have proved that how long you exercise matters more than how hard you exercise.

2. Exercise increases hunger
It's a common misconception: If you burn hundreds of calories during a workout, you'll end up eating more. But research shows that exercise has no effect on a person's food needs, with the exception of endurance athletes who exercise for two hours a day or more. In fact, research shows that exercise often suppresses hunger during and after the workout.

3. It doesn't matter where your calories come from
Calories are not created equal. First, some foods (in particular, proteins) take more energy to chew, digest, metabolize, and store than others. Others (such as fats and carbohydrates) require fewer calories to digest and store. Second, different food types have different effects on your blood sugar. Refined carbohydrates (think white bread, cookies, and fruit drinks) raise blood sugar levels dramatically, which encourages fat storage, weight gain, and hunger. Fibrous foods like apples, as well as proteins, raise blood sugar less, making them friendlier to your waistline. Finally, foods that contain a lot of water, such as vegetables and soup, tend to fill the belly on fewer calories, so you'll stop eating them way before you stop eating more calorie-dense foods.

4. Diet alone is enough for sustained getting thin
You'll get thin in the short term by slashing calories, but experts say exercise is what keeps pounds off for good. Exercise burns calories, of course. It also builds muscle, which takes up less space than fat. Muscle tissue also requires more calories to sustain it than fat tissue does. In other words, the more muscle tissue you have, the more calories you'll burn at rest. In fact, some studies suggest that over the long term, if you had a choice of eating consistently less or exercising consistently more, exercise would be the better choice.

5. There is no best time for exercise
If you're simply walking to get healthy or take off some weight, it doesn't matter when you do it, as long as you do it. But if you're an athlete looking for the best-quality workout, choose the late afternoon, when body temperature is highest. Muscles are warm, reaction time is quick, and strength is at its peak. If you push yourself harder as a result, you will burn more calories.

We are excited to announce that our August TEMPUS Networking Event is going to be Wednesday, August 25th at the Melting Pot in Troy . This is an event that will connect you with fellow business owners, sales execs, etc all networking over great food, drinks, give aways, raffles, silent auction, and all for an amazing cause.

Every penny helps for this amazing charity. August Tempus Business and Charitable Networking Events coming together for local charities from support of local business owners across Metro Detroit Our Charity for August is CoDA the Coalition for Dwarf Advocacy.

CoDA- The Coalition for Dwarf Advocacy (CoDA) was formed in late 2006 to: *Advocate for the full rights and benefits of individuals with short stature (dwarfs), and their families within the public and private sectors of society. Since dwarfs are so rare (1 in 40,000), most people don\'t know much about us and CoDA\'s purpose is to promote social awareness of dwarfs. It is well known within the disabled community and among affected individuals that a great deal of work needs to be done to ensure that dwarfs have equal opportunity and acceptance in all aspects of society. Along with social awareness, CoDA is developing programs to help dwarfs financially with different aspects of life. From health care, with chronic problems associated with dwarfism, to adoption, where dwarfs are considered social outcasts in some countries and need to be put in loving homes, to accessibility, where some dwarfs can\'t reach a public toilet or ATM.

This event is open to all business networkers. So invite anyone that you feel that would benefit from this event making a positive difference in not only your business, but your community as well.
