(HealthDay News) -- If you want to lose weight, it's important to understand what's really needed to shed extra pounds the healthy way.
The Weight-Control Information Network debunks these common weight-loss myths:
Fad diets are not a safe or effective solution for long-term weight loss.
Carbohydrates should not be completely avoided. Whole grains, fruits and vegetables are healthy sources of carbohydrates.
If it seems that some people have an easier time losing weight, many factors (such as age, weight and heredity) contribute to the ability to shed extra pounds.
Low-fat or fat-free foods may still be high in calories, even if the fat content is reduced.
You can eat fast food occasionally if you make healthy choices and limit portion sizes.
Skipping meals is not an effective way to lose weight.
