Myths about Weight Loss

Weight loss myths and questions we hear from clients

Although weight loss seems simple at first glance, there are many myths and misconceptions about the weight loss process.

Here are a handful of weight loss myths and questions we’ve heard at Lifelong Metabolic Center and our explanations of why they’re myths and answers to questions.


I’m too old to lose weight.

Nonsense! You are never too late to start losing weight, and thankfully our program works for anyone at any age.


My metabolism is all messed up, so I can never lose weight.

Our weight loss program resets your metabolism through the use of all-natural supplements and food cycling, so your metabolism won’t be “messed up,” and you’ll have an easier time losing weight as a result.


I eat right and exercise, but I never lose any weight.

Don’t fret! Even if you are eating healthily and exercising regularly, it’s possible you aren’t eating the right amount for your body to successfully lose weight and maintain the loss of that weight. 

That’s why we do a 4-phase jump start system that involves DNA testing to help you determine a custom set of macros for lifelong healthy weight maintenance


Is losing weight a linear process?

Sometimes, but not always. That’s why a coach is important. All along your weight loss journey, we check your weight (daily in phases 1 and 2, weekly in phase 3, and monthly in phase 4) and make modifications based on your rate of weight loss and what your body is showing us you need in order to make your weight loss goals.

Sometimes we don’t need to make changes, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need someone to encourage you, especially if you start to plateau.


Can supplements help you lose weight?

Absolutely! Lifelong Metabolic Center’s supplements help you feel great while you’re on our program so you’ll want to continue. Not only will you feel great, you’ll also lose weight. Our supplements help with energy, sleep, appetite suppression, and digestion.


Do carbs make you gain weight?

As long as you’re eating the right amount and right types of carbs, no, they do not make you gain weight. But the wrong amount — and especially high amounts of processed carbs — can certainly contribute to weight gain.
