6 Most Overrated Ways of Losing Weight

6 Most Overrated Ways of Losing Weight

Fad diets and crash diets have painted this picture in everyone’s mind that you need to make dramatic changes to your eating habits and lifestyle in order to lose weight. You can drop extra pounds by eating normal roti, chawal, sabzi, fruits – surprised?! You need to check the diet plans on the Rati Beauty app to know how to do just that. But for now, we are listing out some extremely overrated ways of losing weight, which though are effective, but ineffective in the absence of a calorie-deficit diet and some of them do not have any substantial evidence to back their claims. So, do make sure you are not falling for the hype to avoid disappointments in your weight loss journey.

6 Most Overrated Ways of Losing Weight

1. Cardio: Cardio is good, but cardio is not great for weight loss. Experts say too much cardio rakes up the appetite. Also, people tend to overestimate calories burnt during cardio (profuse sweating is one reason) and compensate by eating more food and calories. Try a mix of activities – walking, yoga, HIIT (high intensity interval training), strength training, for faster weight loss.
2. Juice Diet: There’s a huge misconception that one can lose weight by drinking only fruit juices through the day. On the contrary, fruit juices without the fiber content is just too much sugar and a higher number of calories. Even though fruit juices are healthy, they are not exactly weight loss friendly because the insulin spike with the jump in blood sugar will actually facilitate conversion of glucose into fat! Eat the fruit raw and whole form, avoid juicing them out. Also read: “Can you Lose Weight By Drinking Only Fruit Juices?”
3. Drugs Like Ozempic which is actually a Treatment for Type 2 Diabetes: Depending on drugs like ozempic (semaglutide), which is formulated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, is not a prudent way to drop weight. While it has shown to help people drop weight while they are on the medication, most of them tend to re-gain all that weight after discontinuing the treatment. So, basically, it’s a life-long treatment which comes with its own side effects.
4. Too Much Green Tea: A lot of people drink copious amount of green tea in the hope to melt away belly fat (the green tea advertisements claim so), but there are some serious side effects of too much green tea which hardly anyone talks about – too much green tea can cause headaches, dizziness, and even irregular heartbeat. Two to three cups of green tea is good enough to boost metabolism, but not more than that.
5. Going Totally Gluten Free: Move over “fats” because “gluten” is the new villain in some weight loss rule books! People with celiac disease are intolerant to the protein gluten that’s commonly found in wheat, rye, barley, cereals, and other grains, but if someone is not intolerant, there’s no need to avoid this protein since no concrete studies have found a link between gluten-free diet and weight loss. Going on a gluten-free diet will prevent you from getting essential nutrients and vitamins that are necessary for the fat-burning process. Your weight loss journey might in fact slow down without these nutrients which are easily available through these cereals and grains that also have gluten.
6. Appetite Suppressant Powders and Pills: Companies are churning out millions selling out expensive appetite-suppressant powders and pills that claim to suppress appetite, but why spend so much when you can control appetite by having more protein, healthy fats, and fiber through normal diet and food!

So, do avoid these overrated tips and get on a diet which you can do every day of your life, for the rest of your life. Rati Beauty diet plans are designed in a way that it is suitable for homemakers, housewives, students, people who work in night shifts, 12-hour jobs, just about everyone can try these diets.
