Great American Nutrition Fallacies: Weight Loss

“Weight loss” works. Weight loss does not work.  It is incorrect to lose weight. The human body is not designed to lose weight. It is designed to burn fat. Losing weight is one of the biggest marketing schemes of all time.  People associate losing weight with being young and fit. This is bogus. When you lose weight you lose vital tissue that the body needs to sustain healthy functioning. The end result a regain of the weight lost, in addition to having a higher fat percentage.  The focus should be on fat loss not weight loss.
