 This year is about to end and so has to be everyone's bad health habits. But then again, it is easier said than done. However, this could start with believing the right information and being aware of the right studies. Sadly, there are so many myths and misinformation out there that people tend to believe, which then makes their every effort to stay healthy deemed ineffective. Those things need to be debunked right away at least before 2017 starts.

In an article published by Vox, one of the most believed myths in the subject of fitness and health is that exercising contributes a lot to weight loss. This belief needs to go because there are lots of studies that can prove anyone it doesn't. One needs to simply stop eating a lot and watch what they are eating in order to lose weight. Even doctors who specialize in obesity now wants everybody to have a new way of thinking when it comes to exercising, as it shows that it is really not that effective if one wants to lose weight.

Another myth debunked is that doing crunches could result to having flat abs. According to Health.com, doing crunches has been known to work wonders on anyone's abdominal area. Unfortunately, this is also a myth since it is not the best way to achieve the abs that everyone is drea,ing of. It is a kind of exercise that doesn't really even burn off tons of calories make one lose fats in the midsection area. What it does is only tone a small part of the abdominal area. One has a huge chance of gaining gorgeous abs by planking and doing bridges.

These are just among the health myths that one should let go of this coming new year. It is best to start anew with the right information.
