6 Biggest Food & Nutrition Myths Busted

Rivanjali Mithal | February 6, 2018

Every second person you meet can give you some healthy eating advice but all that isn’t always the right advice. Some of them are just myths that people believe to be true. Let’s take a look at a few of them-

1. “Egg yolks are bad for your heart.”

There’s no reason now to fear the yolks. Latest scientific research says that eating cholesterol has no real impact on cholesterol metabolism. Thus, eating foods high in cholesterol does not mean you’ll develop high cholesterol.So, go ahead and eat the whole egg, every day!

2. “Calories eaten at night are more fattening than those eaten early in the day.”

Calories are calories are calories, and it doesn’t matter what time you eat them. What matters are the total calories you take in!

3. “Microwave Cooking is unhealthy.”

Microwave cooking is really no different from any other cooking method that applies heat to food.” That said, microwaving in some plastics may leach compounds into your food, so take care to use only microwave-safe containers.

4. “Eating Fat makes you Fat”

Here’s a pet peeve, that eating fat makes you fat! In fact, healthy fats are essential for the body. Opt for good fats like extra-virgin olive oil, coconut butter, avocado, and nuts. Please stop fearing fat!

5. “Diet Snacks Can Help You Lose Weight.”

This is again another fad because there is no such thing as diet foods. These processed foods are filled with a lot of salts and trans fats which are definitely not good for the body and can do more harm than good!
