I started losing weight and getting fit when I stopped listening to all of the advice everyone was telling me that “they just read an article about”. It turns out I might be on to something by not listening to everyone. This article outlines some of the more common sound bites you will here from your friend, mother-in-law, or co-workers. In many cases, what they might be telling you could be horribly wrong. Probably what I am telling you right now is wrong too.
