Everyone has something to say about the best way to lose weight; tips, tricks and secret miracle food that melt the fat away instantly, but how do we separate the fact from fiction? Here are some popular and completely false myths about weight loss.

1. It’s easy – you will often hear people comment how easy it was to lose weight and by just switching this or that they lost the weight fast. But the real story of long-term weight loss is a lot more challenging. There will be ups and downs and daily struggles. Be realistic when going into your weight loss journey, it will be challenging but it will also be very rewarding.

2. You can do it on your own – weight loss is a personal journey, but that doesn’t mean you have to and should do it alone. It is important to have someone to talk to and help keep you on track. That is why our personal Consultants are so vital to weight loss success, to find out more about how our Consultants can help you, click here.

3. You have to exercise a lot – many people will tell you the only way to lose weight is to start exercising for hours a week, while exercise will help shed the kilos, it is not the only way. At Jenny Craig we understand the importance of keeping active to help you achieve and maintain your goals, although, on our program you won’t need to run a marathon or struggle through a spin class to get there. We are all about embracing natural activity, every move you make in your everyday life counts – vacuuming, washing the car, walking the aisles in the supermarket. By embracing this constant movement and trying to increase it a little everyday will help you reach your goals even sooner. Click here for some simple ways to increase your activity.

4. It’s all about the number on the Scales – As soon as people talk about weight loss goals, the most common thought is the number on the scales. However, that number should not be the most common thought. There are many other ways to set weight loss goals and there are several non-scale weight loss victories that will help you look good and feel even better!
