3. What are some of the major misconceptions about diets and exercises

Myth: Spot Reduction of fat.
Fact: Majority of us workout specific areas in our body to lose fat in the targeted part, which is not possible as our body has its own pre-determined way of losing fat. Exercises and a healthy diet will help in overall fat loss.

Myth: Lifting weights will make women bulky.
Fact: Training with weights will help develop muscles which in turn will increase one’s metabolism. It will help burn fat, tighten and tone up the body.

Myth: Eating only healthy foods will help in losing weight. 
Fact: If you are going to consume too much of healthy food, you will still gain weight. Make sure to have a nutritious calorie deficit diet to lose weight.

6. What is one piece of advice you would like to give someone who wishes to lose weight?

Be patient and consistent. Healthy weight loss is not instant. It takes time as you need to make changes to embrace a healthy lifestyle. Don’t go in for ‘Fad Diets’. It is not sustainable for the long term. Instead, small changes daily to your diet and workouts will help you lose fat and keep you healthy.

6. How do diets and exercise contribute to overall well being and happiness?

Being fit and healthy should be the top priority for all. Exercising and eating right have huge effects on overall health. It can help in preventing and control a lot of health-related issues and other complications later in life.

Not only are these effective in losing weight, reduces stress, but it also improves self-esteem and makes you feel confident, improves sleep quality and makes you look younger.
