MYTH: Fewer calories is always better.
With Weight Watchers and nutrition apps like MyNetDiary now diet staples, calorie counting is still a big diet trend. But less isn’t always better. “You need to fuel your body, especially when you are working out,” says Haley. “If you don’t take in enough calories, your body may think it’s starving itself and actually holds on to weight as protection.” So fuel up often, and stash healthy snacks in your purse or at your desk.

MYTH: Lifting heavy weights will make you bulky.
Lifting weights builds muscle, but strength training alone won’t turn you into The Rock. “It’s more likely that you will bulk up from eating the wrong foods (or too much food) in combination with not enough cardio,” Haley explains. “For example, body builders take in a ridiculous amount of calories and lift heavy weights, thus increasing their body mass (which some consider ‘bulky’). By eating a balanced diet, doing cardio and lifting heavy weights, you will be stronger and leaner.”

MYTH: Doing crunches will get rid of belly fat.
Crunches create muscle, but they won’t eliminate any fat on top of the muscle (or that winter muffin top). “You need to combine cardiovascular work with your core training program (more than just crunches) to get rid of the belly fat,” says Haley. “Cardio will help you burn the fat. Core training will help create the muscle.”

MYTH: If you’re not sweating, you’re not working hard enough.
You should never base your workout on sweating because everyone has different sweat glands and some sweat more than others. Instead, Haley recommends paying attention to your breath intake. “If it is becoming harder to breathe, you are working harder. If it never becomes harder to breathe, you will never see an increase in your cardiovascular endurance.”

MYTH: Heat and vigorous exercise helps you sweat out toxins.
We’ve seen plenty of people layer on clothing in the summer heat, with the idea that sweating is the fitness world’s answer to a cleanse. But Haley explains why this idea just doesn’t work. “Sweating is a way for your body to release heat and even though it may contain tiny amounts of toxins, the amount is small enough to be almost insignificant.”

MYTH: You must stretch before a workout to prevent injury.
Stretching can prevent injury, but it depends on the type of stretching! Our stereotypical static stretches (where we hold a position for a certain amount of time) can actually put your muscles to sleep. “Dynamic (active) stretches” — such as straight leg kicks — “are a better way to go because they increase blood flow and warm up the body, which ultimately helps you prevent injury.”

MYTH: Doings squats will make your butt big.
“Doing squats will make your butt strong, give you a butt-lift (a perkier butt), and help tighten up your muscles,” says Haley. “It will not make your butt big.” So think firm, not pudgy.

MYTH: You can target trouble spots.
“Every person is genetically different and can see changes differently on their body,” Haley says. So instead of focusing on your stomach or thighs, indulge in a well-rounded workout. “You do not want to just target trouble spots, but rather have a combination of cardio, strengthening and toning exercises to help create a lean strong body.”

MYTH: An empty stomach means more fat burn.
If you work out on an empty stomach, you may not have enough energy to even get through it. “Your body needs fuel to burn fat. Working out on an empty stomach is just going to hinder your workout.” So eat, work out, repeat.

ICONIC

I actually teared up the first time I saw her all female band. 

this is so important why don’t more female musicians do this? 

I always see female artists talking about how we need to give chances to more women in the industry, but Beyonce comes out and fucking makes it happen and that’s why she’s Queen.

The people at this shisha place are super nice but they also gave me a hit pink hookah because I’m a girl.
So right now I’m sitting outside a shisha cafe in Germany, drinking mint tea, enjoying the weather, trying to think aboit where my life is going…while smoking from a hookah that looks like it came from Mattel’s swiftly-discontinued Orientalism Barbie set.
This scene has apparently caused some amusement among people passing by.

When men imagine a female uprising, they imagine a world in which women rule men as men have ruled women.

I feel this is very important.

It’s been apparent to me for a while that most men can’t really imagine “equality.”  All they can imagine is having the existing power structure inverted.

I cannot decide whether this shows how unimaginative they are, or shows how aware they must be of what they do in order to so deeply fear having it turned on them.
