This article shows nutrition myths, so if you're looking for bad dietary advice, you've come to the right place! This article consist of tho parts, read the first part – here.
Don't touch salt at all costs
Too many people think that salt is bad for our health and that we should stop putting it in our food. Too much salt is bad, but not getting any salt at all can be even worse. Sodium keeps our hearts working right and controls water intake. No amount of sodium in your body can kill you.
Eat fruit when you're hungry. It’s easier for our stomachs to absorb nutrients and keep food from going bad
People who really believe that food can go bad in our stomachs are funny. Now that we've cleared that up, we can say that eating any kind of food on an empty stomach doesn't help our bodies absorb nutrients better. Anyway, the intestines, not the stomach, take in most vitamins and minerals.
Eating carbs before exercise gives you quick energy
People who say you need to eat a lot of carbs right before a workout think people are like cars. We don't get more energy right after we eat. It takes hours for the food we eat to be broken down and turned into energy. Carbs stored in our muscles and liver give us the energy we need to work out.
Sea salt is better than table salt
You should manage your sodium consumption if you're keeping track of how much you eat, but salt type is entirely unimportant. Even though sea salt and pink salt have different mineral structures, they both have the same nutritional value.
Get rid of your egg yolks. There are a lot of fat and cholesterol in them
Eggs are one of the healthiest foods, but the yolk does have a lot of cholesterol. But that doesn't mean you should get rid of it. In fact, most of the nutrients are in the yolk, and eggs can even help raise HDL cholesterol (the good type). Next time you order an egg-white omelet, keep that in mind.
Taking multivitamins won't help if you're overweight
Even if you are overweight or obese, your body is not holding onto all of the vitamins you need to stay healthy. Most cases of obesity are caused by a bad diet full of high-calorie foods that don't offer much if we speak about nutrition. Our body's fat contain potential energy rather than stored vitamins.
When cooking, use only polyunsaturated oils
Health experts recommend eating oil with a lot of polyunsaturated fats because these fats have shown to lower cholesterol. Even though that is a good thing about these oils, we need to watch out for some bad things, like inflammation. They can even set off chain reactions of free radicals that hurt proteins and DNA.
Vegetables in the nightshade family are bad for you
Tom Brady, who has won five Super Bowls, talked about how he avoids inflammation by not eating tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, or nightshade vegetables. There are 2,000 species in the Solanaceae plant family, from which nightshade plants came. Inflammation is caused by a diet full of saturated fats, trans fats, and too much sugar, not by these.
