The point is that it is not necessary to employ a certain meal frequency. You lost weight (and congrats, btw) eating 5/6 meals per day because it allowed you to create a calorie deficit much in the same way that my 2 meals per day does for me. Neither one is more valid than the other as it's down to personal preference.

The article specifically states that a certain meal frequency will create a metabolic advantage and this is false. And claiming that something will do something that it will not do, is a bad, bad thing.

Make sure they are teal colored. This will cause greater energy expenditure on Wednesdays and it will also cause you to enjoy eating lawn clippings, which are loaded with planty goodness.

I chew on winterfresh gum everyday .. and I've lost weight. It's not for everyone though, some people have to use Big Red.

Not a fan in general...

I am, however, curious if anyone does #7 - use greek yogurt in things like tuna/chicken salad.

I have been smooshing in an avocado, but am curious for more options.


I use cottage cheese that has been smoothed out in the blender with a little lemon juice.

Ugh. I'd say about 5 of those were actually useful, and the rest are pretty much useless, made up fairy tales. It's not being negative to point out misinformation, it's being helpful. Which is more helpful, pointing out bs rules that you don't need to worry about, so you can keep things simple, or staying quiet and letting you adopt a ton of overly complicated, unnecessary rules that won't have any impact on weight loss and fitness?

Thank you for posting. I read the entire list. Some good suggestions and ideas. Thanks again.

Thanks for the post....Maybe I'm so new to my journey that every little thing helps...I'm obviously not as well versed as others, but I got some ideas....for exercise and goals.....that will help me.

Sorry that others had to see it so negatively. My momma always told me...if ya can't say something nice......(well...you get the gist. )

Thanks for the post. I've printed it and will use it.

The key point here is that a lot of those are myths or just flat out wrong. The 'negativity' is people pointing that out. Misinformation can be pretty damaging. A lot of people think the information on this forum is trustworthy and might therefore take it at face value. That's why it bothers me. We NEED to question this stuff to ensure good quality advice is shared.

Fact is that if you mix total BS in with stuff that might actually be useful, no-one will believe any of it. Imagine if I wrote a car maintenance manual that started out by saying that replacing the oil with mineral water will prolong the engine! It wouldn't matter if the rest of the advice was good, you'd disregard the book as bunkum.

The tip about 'warm muscles work better' is an example of potential harm. Someone could easily cause them-self to overheat or dehydrate as a result.
Also, remember that correlation doesn't imply causation. As with the lovely bread example above, just because you do a thing and lose weight, doesn't mean that thing caused weight loss.

Notice how none of the 'facts' give any source for the research or even explain exactly HOW they are supposed to work.

That is, importantly, about giving opinions. Science doesn't work like that!

there's plenty of good stuff in this, the problem is that the very first tip is

QUOTE:
1Eat six small meals a day. Stoking your body with food every three to four hours can rev your metabolism to the max.


which is total BS, then we get to

QUOTE:
4Throw on a hoodie before working out. When your muscles are warm, you actually burn more calories.


which is just ****ing hilarious.

Some of the tips after that are great, but when the article starts with complete BS people are just going to laugh, not the read the rest and not take any of it seriously


that's exactly what happened with me. after the first few i stopped reading

as for the person asking about greek yogurt. mix your avocado with the greek yogurt. it makes a great dip for veggies.
