The Myth And Truths About Healthy Eating


STORY WRITTEN BY:



While there are a lot of diet tips we’ll hear from our friends and relatives on what we should and we should not eat to stay healthy, however, not all of them are a universally accepted truth and most of them in general, are deemed to be myths—meaning they are not a 100% true to what we actually believe, and here are some of these myths and the truths behind them.


It’s about time to know them all!

    MYTH: YOU SHOULD NOT EAT AFTER 6PM.
TRUTH: The time of the day has nothing to do with your eating habits and it doesn’t affect your weight loss or weight gain as well. However, it is not actually a great idea to eat a lot 3-4 hours before sleeping.

    MYTH: BROWN BREAD IS HEALTHIER THAN WHITE.
TRUTH: No! The calories found in white bread and in brown bread are almost the same.

    MYTH: YOU CAN DRINK AS MUCH FRESHLY-SQUEEZED JUICE AS YOU LIKE.
TRUTH: You should not drink more than 3 glasses a day. Whether it’s freshly-squeezed, remember that fruits contain an amount of sugar in it, so best to take everything in moderation.

    MYTH: YOU CAN EAT SUSHI WHEN YOU’RE ON A DIET.
TRUTH: False! The cheese, mayonnaise and soy sauce contain a lot of calories (unless you would want your sushi without dressings then I think it is fine).

    MYTH: CHOCOLATE IS BAD FOR YOUR FIGURE.
TRUTH: Well in reality, a piece of dark chocolate is actually good for you. It is good for the brain, heart and circulation, reduces the risk of stroke, reduces bad cholesterol, can help you lose weight, and is also good for the skin.

    MYTH: EATING LESS MAKES YOU THINNER.
TRUTH: Eating 5-6 times a day will make you thinner. Just eat in small and ample amounts, don’t eat too much or go binge eating. You are eating less on every meal, which reduces the hunger moments and craving for food instead of eating less on each day.

    MYTH: YOU SHOULD DRINK 1.5-2 LITERS A DAY.
TRUTH: You should drink as much as your body needs it. Remember that you perspire every minute, it is inevitable. So best to stay hydrated at all costs.

    MYTH: BROWN SUGAR IS HEALTHIER THAN WHITE SUGAR
TRUTH: Sugar is sugar. Both are equally bad for you.

And there you go! Always think of what is best and what is healthy. Do a bit of research and always remember that take all things in moderation and it’ll all do good for you. Happy healthy eating!
