Weight loss myths: 3 dieting methods fact checked

An intense exercise regime is the best way to lose weight

Without a doubt, if you go through an intense period of exercising you will shed a few pounds as your body burns so much energy.

However, this isn’t the best way to lose weight and keep it off.

Smaller changes you can stick to over a long period of time is better than attempting to lose weight dramatically and quickly.

The NHS recommends 150 minutes of exercise a week – this could be fast walking, jogging, cycling or gym sessions.

Walking every day is a good way to get your overall exercise up, without having to commit to intense daily workouts.
