Principles of Weight Loss: Eat Fewer Calories Not Less Food (Part 1)
Diet myths. Why doesn't the “eat less” principle help you?
We continue to break the most popular stereotypes about dieting. In previous posts, we talked about too much protein in the diet and why fasting is not always an effective way to get in shape.
Diet myths: the more protein in the food, the better
Busting myths about good nutrition.
Today we come to the third myth, which, perhaps, is almost on the most common. Everyone who is losing weight is already so used to it that it will not be easy to refuse this indisputable statement. But believe me, it's much more difficult to stick to this rule all the time.

Myth # 3 - to lose weight, you need to eat less
This is what the famous Philip Kirkorov said in one of his interviews. Many took his answer to the question of how to keep yourself in shape as a guide to action. However, we are ready to challenge this advice! What matters is not the amount of food consumed, but its calorie content. Do not forget that calories are the energy our body needs, but their excess can be stored in fat.
In the West, there is a popular style of food called Flexible Dieting. Its meaning is to comply with the daily calorie intake, while consuming any foods. It was assumed that a person would be able to afford a little sweet or starchy foods.
In fact, people start to eat fast food and chocolate, justifying this by keeping the calorie intake. At the same time, they forget that this rate consists almost entirely of fat and light carbohydrates. It certainly doesn't advance on the path to a healthy and beautiful body.
The bottom line is this: the calorie rate must be observed if you do not want to gain weight. Whether this weight is flabby fat or firm muscles depends on the quality of the food you eat and physical activity.
