A lot of misconceptions float around in the kitchen, and you need to separate fact from fiction. While some myths are just silly, others can be detrimental to your health.
Whether it’s conflicting studies or confusing labels, it’s becoming harder and harder to achieve a so-called “balanced” diet. Add all those false information by family, the media, and even some health care practitioners to the mix and we end up being more confused than ever before. Here are 20 healthy food myths that we believed for years.
1. Fashion vs. Frowned upon
2. Idolized vs. demonized
3. Why choose a flavored drink when you can have the real thing?
4. “Junk foods” are not the only ones that cause obesity.
5. Drinking vs. eating oranges.
6. “Sugar causes obesity.”
7. Superfood vs. regular food
8. You can actually stretch the amount of calories in two days without starving yourself.
9. Skinny coffee vs. black coffee
10. I guess I’d rather have a bad day than a good snack.
11. Chips that are made of fruits are still chips.
12. After 6PM, a minute before 6PM, same thing.
13. I knew pasta is not pure evil.
14. Same calories, different taste.
15. So I paid extra on brown rice for nothing?
16. Always satisfy your hunger.
17. The homemade one looks more appetizing.
18. I can’t believe this!
19. When we thought the color of the bread matters.
20. Food is food.
These are just a few of the incorrect notions that we’ve all been told at one point or another. But it’s time to put an end to these alluring myths, misconceptions, and inaccuracies.
Michelle Cady, integrative nutrition health coach of FitVista.com, said:
“So many women still fear eating fat, stemming from the low-fat craze that captivated the public in the ‘80s and ‘90s. But we got it wrong. When you increase your healthy fat intake and lower your intake of refined, white carbohydrates, you’ll stay satiated longer, stabilize your blood sugar, and teach your body to burn off extra body fat, rather than rely on quick bursts of carbs, sugar, and glucose for energy.”
The main point of this post is for all of us to not restrict ourselves from eating what we want to eat. Just as long as we don’t overdo it, then everything should be fine.
Russia’s Psychic Cat Achilles Correctly Predicts World Cup Opening Game Winner
But can he predict the 2018 FIFA World Cup champion?
The new Nostradamus might be an adorable furry critter. A sweet Russian cat has been chosen to predict the outcome of the first game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. It may seem hard to believe but the feline was spot on with his prediction.
Achilles is already a modern day prophet. After all, the cat correctly predicted most of the results in last year's Confederate Cup in Russia. Nevertheless, people wondered if the adorable feline will manage to prophesy what would happen in this year's World Cup opening game. Achilles had to choose between Russia and Saudi Arabia, and managed to predict the motherland's stunning victory.
The psychic cat concentrates before making a prediction about the World Cup opening game.
The deaf feline actually considered choosing Saudi Arabia, which was represented by the bowl on the left.
Dog Interrupts MLB Baseball Game, Gets Rewarded With A Ball And A New Friend
The pooch thought the baseball team was trying to play fetch with her!
One lucky dog had a truly awesome day at the park. A young German Shepherd got to watch a Minor League Baseball game with her owner. In addition to that, the pooch got to play a game of fetch and made a new friend. She also went home with a ball and won the hearts of many fans.
The MLB team Tulsa Drillers recently had a Bark at the Park Night when they went up against the Northwest Arkansas Naturals. The event allows fans to bring their dogs to the field while the NWA infielders were warming up. One pooch noticed that the players were throwing a ball around. The excited German Shepherd immediately broke away from her owner and dashed to join the baseball players.
The German Shepherd didn't care that the world was watching because she just wanted to play fetch.
The dog clearly loved balls and couldn't resist a possible game of fetch. NWA Naturals shortstop Nicky Lopez tossed the ball towards the foul line so the pooch would follow it out of the field. However, the German Shepherd immediately collected the ball and brought it back to him. Lopez quickly took hold of her leash so she could be led out of the baseball field....
Whale Found Dead In Thailand Had Over 80 Plastic Bags In Stomach
The poor whale starved to death.
A pilot whale died in Southern Thailand and scientists have found the alarming cause of the death. Apparently, the whale had 80 plastic bags in its stomach, which caused the animal to starve to death.
A week ago, the pilot whale was found clinging to life up a canal in Songkhla province, near the Malaysian border. Conservation officials tried to save the whale's life for days. They used buoys to keep it afloat and umbrellas to provide a shield from the sun.
After five days of endless effort, the whale vomited pieces of plastic.
The whale's condition drastically deteriorated and it later died.
