Trying to keep ourselves fit and healthy is a challenge at the best of times. It seems that there is always someone ready to give us a piece of advice on how to exercise, lose weight or have a more nutritious diet. But how much of what you are told can you believe and how do you know which pieces of advice to take seriously?This book addresses questions such as: If I exercise my tricep muscles, will I lose my bingo wings? Why do I need to supplement my diet with vitamin C (I eat three oranges a day!)? Do you burn as many calories walking a mile as you do running a mile? And, does drinking beer give you a beer belly?Every day, top personal trainer Graeme Hilditch is asked just these kind of questions and, in this intriguing and informative book, he uses his extensive expertise in fitness and nutrition to explode some of the most common myths. His explanations are light-hearted and accessible to everyone and his no-nonsense advice will tell you everything you need to know in order to live a fit and healthy life.
