Biggest Fitness Myths Debunked
Research shows that sex only burns about as many calories per minute as walking, and is usually over after six minutes. Unless you are going at it for hours at a time, don't think your daily romp in the sack is all the exercise you need.
No, doing butt-crunches won't get rid of the fat in your rear, and doing sit-ups won't lose the extra flab in your belly. Your body burns fat on an even keel. As you'll see in Myth #1, exercise doesn't really help with weight loss.
The best weight loss diet plan is to eat no less than 1200 calories per day if you’re a woman, or 1800 for men, over 5-6 small meals. When your body is starved, it slows down your metabolism, so less food will cause a bigger impact on your body weight. Eat the same amount of wholesome foods, but eat more often to keep that metabolism high!
