Weight Loss Secrets Revealed: 5 Popular Dieting Myths

Bread from wheat flour, whole grain bread

The Whole Grain Myth

Carbs are carbs, no matter now “nutritious” you try to make them. Do yourself a favor and don’t switch to the more expensive whole-wheat pastas (they taste like cardboard anyway) thinking you’re doing your diet a favor. If you’re eating bread, cereal, or pasta – regardless of the grain it’s made with – you are going to counteract a huge degree of your weight loss effort. We’re not saying to go low carb (although it does work – one of our staff lost almost 200 pounds low-carbing), but don’t think that just because you’re eating higher quality carbs they’ll get you to your goal any faster.
