MYTH
FACT
1.
"A slow metabolism prevents weight loss"
studies have shown that resting metabolism - the number of calories used by the body at rest -increases as people become fatter.
 
in other words, the larger you are, the more calories you need to keep your body going and higher your metabolism.
 
Comment from Dr. Praveen Ramachandra: weight gain occurs when the number of calories eaten is greater than the number used up by the body.
 
Unfortunately, people are becoming increasingly sedentary, burning off less and less calories and it seems likely this is a crucial factor in the numbers struggling to control their weight.
