December Quiz Results: Weight Loss Myths

In last month's quiz, we asked you about some popular weight loss myths that we hear on a regular basis.  There is so much information and so many opinions out there, sometimes it's hard to keep track, but overall, you did pretty well!  Here are the results:

Question 1: True or False? Steady state low intensity exercise for a longer period of time will help you lose more weight than shorter duration moderate intensity exercise because it burns more fat.
Answer: False
While low intensity exercise can actually help burn more fat than high intensity, the total caloric burn will be higher in the later situation (shorter duration moderate-high intensity exercise). At the end of the day whether you are burning carbs vs. fat, the fact of the matter is more calories out than in = weight loss! And don't forget about that period of time after your workout in a moderate-high intensity workout called EPOC - excess post exercise oxygen consumption - where you are still burning calories even after you stop! 

Question 2: True or False? To lose one pound per week, you need to create a deficit of 500 calories each day.
Answer: True
It may sound like a lot but if you are burning at least 300 calories in a workout and you cut your calories back by only 200 a day (that's one tablespoon of peanut butter or half a donut, or 2 oz of cheese) you're there!  Now, much more goes into being healthy while losing weight, but this is an easy way to visualize the big picture.

Question 3: True or False? To lose fat in your midsection, you must incorporate core training into your daily routines.
Answer: False
While strengthening your core will help to build the muscles in your midsection, it will not necessarily help you burn fat there.  Unfortunately, we can't spot train, meaning - we can't choose at particular area to lose fat in and expect it will happen because you are building muscle there.  Again, the fact of the matter is that we have to burn calories to lose fat and everyone's body is different as to where they will lose fat first.  It takes patience!
