Training and nutrition sciences have advanced significantly compared to a few decades ago. Fortunately, the past few years have also witnessed the rise of many respectable fitness figures that have one goal in mind: to approach strength training and nutrition with evidence-based perspectives. Because of those two reasons, many myths were debunked. However, there are still many myths circulating the fitness realm and it’s time for us to stop believing them. If I had to choose one fallacy-rich topic it would be dieting and losing fat. Many people are still not aware of how fat loss truly occurs and how to go about achieving that shredded Greek god physique. So, in quest of “getting ready for the summer”, individuals will often jump on a diet and rev up their cardio in hopes of getting lean and mean.
