In Health, Healthcare, Medicine on July 31, 2012 at 8:00 am

 

Myth: Certain foods, like grapefruit, celery, or cabbage soup, can burn fat and make you lose weight.

Fact: No foods can burn fat. Some foods with caffeine may speed up your metabolism (the way your body uses energy, or calories) for a short time, but they do not cause weight loss.

Tip: The best way to lose weight is to cut back on the number of calories you eat and be more physically active.

This ends our series of most common myths on weight-loss and nutrition. Hope you enjoyed it.
