With so much misinformation—and so many outright lies—floating around how to lose weight, it’s hard to know what really works.
So today I’m going to shatter the three of the biggest weight loss myths, so you can stop wasting your time and finally start seeing results.
Myth #1: You MUST eliminate carbs
You’ve probably heard this one thousands of times:
“Carbs are making you fat.”
So many diets claim that if you eliminate carbs, you’ll magically start losing fat.
Sure, cutting out carbs can help you lower your daily calorie intake, which will eventually result in you dropping a few extra pounds…
But going carb-free sounds like a miserable way to live, and is entirely unnecessary.
The real issue with carbs isn’t the calories in the bread or pasta, it’s the way your body handles those foods. Carbs can cause chronically elevated blood sugar and inflammation, which is what makes long-term weight loss difficult.
But rather than removing carbs from your diet altogether, you can simply improve your body’s ability to handle any unexpected spikes in blood sugar—negating the negative consequences of carbohydrates.
For example, gymnema, which translates to “the sugar destroyer” is an Ayurvedic herb that’s been used for centuries to block the absorption of sugar and aid in weight loss.
Our proven weight loss formula, InnerLight, includes gymnema as a foundational ingredient to blunt the effects of sugar without you having to cut out carbs.
Myth #2: You can’t lose weight if you’re past your 40s
Is it true that your metabolism gets more sluggish with age? Absolutely.
Your metabolism in your 40s and 50s is nowhere near as efficient as it was in your 20s and 30s. You probably remember eating anything you wanted and feeling great… and now it seems like you gain weight simply by looking at food.
But here’s the good news…
Science has proven that this metabolic slowdown is primarily due to decreased AMPK activity.
AMPK acts as the master switch of your body’s metabolism. As you age, your body naturally turns down the dial.
Thankfully, we know how to turn this dial back up.
Exercise and diet have a moderate impact on increasing your AMPK, but to make that activity even more efficient, we can supplement with berberine.
Berberine is an herb that has been shown to be nearly as effective as prescription drugs when it comes to activating AMPK, your metabolic master switch!
Taking a berberine supplement is like exercise in a bottle, and it can give you the same metabolic-boost you’d get from regular diet and exercise, without having to actually exercise.
That’s why berberine is the cornerstone of InnerLight, helping turn back the clock and boost your AMPK levels for a faster metabolism.
Which leads us to our final weight loss myth…
Myth #3: You MUST exercise for hours per day to lose weight
There’s no denying the countless health benefits of regular physical activity…
However, this does NOT mean you need to spend endless hours each week exercising.
In fact, it’s possible to lose weight without exercise.
Since fat loss happens when you consume fewer calories than you burn, reducing your food intake is equally effective for shedding those extra pounds.
Restrictive dieting usually means unpleasant hunger and cravings… which is exactly why we created InnerLight.
In addition to sugar-blocking gymnema and metabolism-igniting berberine, we’ve included Chromium, a potent craving-destroyer.
If you’re looking to lose weight, Chromium has been shown to manage your appetite and reduce cravings, which means eating less food can feel nearly effortless.
InnerLight is our three-step weight loss formula specifically designed to reduce cravings, block sugar absorption, and directly increase your metabolism.
