Obesity is one of those topics that everybody has an opinion on, so it’s no wonder that there are so many obesity myths!

While being a controversial topic keeps obesity on the front pages, it can also make it difficult to sort out the facts from the fiction, and makes fighting obesity more difficult.

A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine aimed to crush the top obesity myths: here’s what it revealed.

We’ve all heard that sex is great exercise, and that proves true time and time again.

Getting hot and sweaty with your partner is a great way to use muscles and expel energy, and you are sure to get a mood boost too – but the study found that some calorie claims were very exaggerated.

One weight loss website claimed that a roll in the hay burnt 300 to 400 calories – but the study found that “average” sex lasts six minutes and burns 21 calories.

This has to be one of the saddest obesity myths to bust…2
