Here at Carter Fitness Labs, our lives revolve around health and wellness, as you’ve probably figured out by now. It’s no surprise we get frustrated hearing the same rumors through the grapevine over and over again. After so much time spent in this industry, I’ve made it my passion to give people the right information they need to succeed. Whether it’s developing a new diet plan or creating a specialized set of workouts to meet goals, we work tirelessly to make it as easy as possible for people to achieve their ultimate fitness dreams. Believing common health and fitness myths won’t get anyone closer to their goals. That’s why we want to address the most common misconceptions we come across. Let’s take a look at the top five myths we hear and why they aren’t true. This common myth revolves around how horrible artificial sweeteners are for your health. While they can have ill effects in the long run, they are a great opportunity to sweeten something without adding calories and sugar. As we’ve talked about before, extra calories are the worst option.

Truthfully, I don’t even eat broccoli anymore. Like many people, it tends to give me digestive problems. In fact, it’s been shown that broccoli has this effect on about 30% of the population. While we’ve been conditioned in health classes throughout our education to seek out this “superfood” if we want to have a balanced diet, the reality is it’s the hardest vegetable for your body to absorb. Instead, try Brussels sprouts. Not everything natural is healthy. Think about it: Diseases are natural, and we don't want those. Even products praised as “natural” aren’t always great for you. Some people mostly eat processed foods due to medical conditions. They will be okay, as will you. A good example is yogurt; it’s everything else, there are limits. It’s all about making the right choices and doing the research. By looking into the facts and knowing what types of food your body can handle, you’ll be able to broaden your horizons and find the best fit for your diet. 3.

Don’t shut yourself in a box. Putting yourself on a restricted diet is no way to live at all. Ultimately, you will binge on forbidden items when a moment of weakness wins. It’s better to give yourself some leeway on special occasions and get the cravings out of the way responsibly. If you’re gonna have a brownie, just measure it into your daily intake. As long as you’re measuring, you can eat whatever you want. This will help you stay away from cheat weekends and quick weight gain. I’m proud to say that even I personally employ a coach. With my training regimen and diet program, I’ve found no better way to keep myself on track than by handing the reins to a trusted professional. Having someone keep me accountable makes all the difference. Whether you want to lose weight or build mass, we have a coach to fit your needs right here at Carter Fitness Labs.
