"I can eat whatever I want"

Myth: You can eat whatever you want as long as you work out

False: Just because you have burned some calories doesn’t mean you can eat more. Research shows that often times we will workout for 30 minutes and burn only 200 calories (depending on intensity, of course), as a result people think it's okay to have more food; like adding a dessert after dinner. Unfortunately, that dessert is probably 4 times that in calories of what you had burned.

Truth of the matter: If you’re not eating healthy while working out, you won’t reap the benefits and lose the weight.

It’s simple science. To lose weight you must be expending more calories than you are taking in!
