Having a healthy body is not an easy job, and you might have been hearing some misconceptions about nutrition and food which may be detrimental to your general wellbeing if you take them serious. Knowing the truth can help you reach a healthier body — and a happier mind. Here are 5 common myth that can be misleading you from good health.
Carbohydrates include highly processed foods, like crackers, chips, bread, and breakfast cereal. But, carbohydrates also include berries, spinach, beans, lentils, and plant-based foods that contain fiber and a variety of health-promoting nutrients. These forms of carbohydrates should be part of your diet.
Consuming high-fiber, unrefined carbohydrates — whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables — is linked to a reduced risk of chronic disease. Therefore, if your body permits, these food should be consumed regularly.
“There’s nothing special about breakfast”. The first food you eat during the day is technically breakfast, but it doesn’t need to be consumed early or include certain types of foods. If you’re not hungry in the morning, you can skip this meal and move right into lunch.
Snacking takes the edge off your hunger and can work for or against you depending on what you’re eating. Apples, walnuts, bananas, carrots, hummus, and beans are recommended as nutritious snacks. Skip highly processed vending machine food that will spike (and then crash) your blood sugar.
Sometimes, frozen produce may be healthier than fresh. Frozen produce is often flash frozen at the peak of ripeness, while some fresh produce is picked before it’s ripe.” The nutrition in fresh produce may degrade as it’s shipped to stores, according to a study published in June 2017 in the Journal of Food Composition and Analysis.
