EXERCISE MYTH BUSTER
Julia Westgarth, Programme Development Manager at Weight Watchers, puts you straight about shifting those annoying pounds...
You can eat whatever you want if you do enough
exercise Myth 2: Exercising on
an empty stomach burns
more fat Myth 3: Exercise just makes you eat more
Julia says: ‘Not true. Some people spend hours at the gym but still can’t lose weight, because they don’t change their eating habits. To lose weight you need to burn off more calories than you take in, but you also need to eat well.’
Julia says: ‘Not true. Your body needs fuel for a workout. A small meal or snack – such as a low-fat yoghurt with fruit – about two hours before exercising will give the best results.’
Julia says: ‘ Think again! Researchers at Leeds University found that, for most people, doing intense physical exercise caused no automatic increase in either hunger or eating.”
