Losing weight is a battle that many struggle with. Some have a harder time than others because they believe these little lies that they hear about weight loss. Here are seven that should be tossed out according to celebrity fitness and nutrition educator JJ Virgin:

1. Soy is a healthy food: You will find soy in most vegetarian and vegan diets. The problem is that it is spun in aluminum casks, is full of GMOs, and is sprayed with pesticides. It has been shown to cause issues such as digestive problems, cognitive declines, and thyroid issues.

2. Low-fat and fat-free are better options: Anything that is not full fat is loaded with more sugar so that it tastes good. Fats are not as bad as they are always made out to be and in cases such as milk and yogurts, they are better to have than the alternatives.

3. Calories are calories no matter what you are eating: Not all calories are created equal.
