You can find them everywhere. Myths and misconceptions about the causes of obesity and the efficacy of diets are widespread not only in public media, but also in scientific literature.
Myth 1: Small Changes Have A Big Effect
Even small but sustainable changes in energy consumption or energy use lead to large weight changes in the long term (about two potato chips more daily make thick or twenty Minutes of walking leads to weight loss). In the case of small dietary steps, there is primarily a change in body composition without weight loss. It is also proven that someone who walks 1.5 kilometers daily and burns 100 kilos of calories by no means decreased after 5 years 22.5 kilograms, but only about 4.5 kilograms. Always assuming that he does not multiply his energy consumption during this time.
Myth 2: Fast And Much Is Worse Than Little And Slow
A large, fast weight loss is associated with a worse long-term result than a gradual, longer-term weight loss. Regardless of whether very low or moderate calorie intake, in long-term follow up, the therapy success was not significantly different. It is not clear why some obese people initially have a greater weight loss than others. These people would be able to achieve success with a recommendation to throttle the reduction of energy and to keep it in place for a longer period of time.
Myth No 3: School Sports Prevent Overweight Of Children
What is the importance of physical education to prevent or reduce obesity in children? There is no study that shows that the usual two-hour training in schools prevents overweight or helps to make obese students slimmer. Whether additional sports lessons can contribute to this, the results are not clear and different for boys and girls. The ratio of the duration of the sports hours to the extent of the BMI reduction is not known. However, there may be a specific combination of frequency, intensity and duration of school sports that could be effective in weight loss.
