fitness myths

skinny My friends say I should count every calorie that I put in my mouth, tasting my kitchen during the preparation of even a piece of gum.

FitNigeria ™ says Fitness is a lifestyle, not a death sentence . Please live and enjoy life while you’re at it. Life is too short to count every calorie that enters your mouth. Many times, the number of calories indicated on the packaging of food may be out for 10 -. 20% anyway

Therefore, instead of counting calories, keeping a food diary where you document what you eat so you can review and make a conscious effort to cut the elements that often appear not provide enough nutritional value.

Cut all carbohydrates and fats
