Correcting Some Ordinary Diet Myths Using Diet Information

There are so many myths relating to eating habits that you could probably author a book if you wanted to include all of them. A few could possibly be called controversial or not necessarily based on some factual information, and some others are pretty obviously old wives tales however have established some acceptance within certain circles. I would like to cover several in this short article, and maybe shed some light on some of them that if adopted could in fact be harmful to your physical condition.

These constitute a listing of myths, and the diet facts to debunk them:

1. All calories are the same. The line of reasoning is that weight reduction is really a matter of simple math. Which is, if you consume 500 calories less daily in protein, carbs or fat, or whatever combination of all of them than the body burns off, in a week you will lose 3500 calories. This will equate to a single pound of weight. This sounds reasonable, but not accurate.

The three foods described above are by definition equal in energy content, but they're each processed within the body in very dissimilar ways. These differences are going to yield very diverse outcome in weight management. Furthermore, some calories are more filling and keep the appetite satisfied for a longer period of time, and others are going to leave you hungry in no time, forcing you to add more calories to your system to satisfy your hunger.

2. Working out on an empty stomach enhances burning fat. It not only isn't beneficial for dropping fat, it could be downright harmful for your system. A current report concluded that during a drill one's body is going to lose an equal amount of fat, be it on an empty stomach or when you have eaten. The issue, besides making a workout extremely unpleasant, is that devoid of the food to fuel the body, the working out intensity and thus the quantity of calories you lose is going to be reduced. It is always preferable to eat about half hour before a workout. See workout nutrition for further information on the best types of foods to consume for working out.

3. Eating fat can make you fat. It wasn't way back that fat was the adversary, so of course people tried getting their fat intake to zero. Excessive fat will cause you to be fat, and the unsuitable kinds of fat can present you with all kinds of health problems over time. However eating the right varieties of fat will cause you to feel fuller longer, and they will help in the absorption of beneficial vitamins. Look for omega-3s, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, but not in massive quantities.

4. Eating late will make you put on weight. Even though it would not be wise to gorge yourself before going to bed, you will find no convincing studies that say eating late at night is going to cause you to put fat on more rapidly. In fact, starving yourself could make you eat the wrong kinds of food later.

5. It's harder for women to lose weight. Research has shown that, over the long term, women and men using the same controlled diet shed pounds in equal proportions over time. It is true that men, because of more muscle mass and fewer hormonal changes, demonstrate weight loss quicker. After that early burst it becomes even.

There are so many diet myths, and often they center around diet and working out. We try to set the record straight on our websites. Please check them out: and Jim O'Connell is a writer and health enthusiast living in London.
