When it comes to weight loss, knowing what not to do is as important as knowing what to do and sometimes this can be difficult when you’re not actually sure of what’s true about weight loss and what are just myths.

Thank goodness for researches that have consistently debunked this myth. These researches have shown that resistance training for women not only helps improve mood and posture but is also carries over to weight loss as well.

Training without proper nutrition makes it difficult for your body to replenish and recover from the protein breakdown that occurs during a bout of exercise.
Try preparing drinking a nutritious protein shake before every exercise.
