Unhealthy Nutrition Wellness Myths VS Healthy Facts

Author : Jessie Stone

Are you afraid of gaining weight or not staying in shape? Before you throw away your entire food supply in the garbage, hear this article out first. Most of the time, the Nutrition Wellness pointers we thought are healthy are actually unhealthy, and we all should avoid them.

Myth: Potatoes, rice, pasta, and bread can make you fat
Fact: Potatoes, Rice, Pasta and bread contains high carbohydrates but should not be looked at with prejudices. High carbohydrates can't make you overweight because they are just energy-giving health foods. What can make you fat is sluggishness and high caloric intake.

Myth: Non-fat milk can make you lose weight but it contains less calcium
Fact: Non-fat and skimmed milk contains 10% more calcium than full fat milk. It however does not mean that you will lose weight if you drink non fat milk compared to full fat milk.

Myth: Full fat milk can make you fat
Fact: Full fat milk is a very healthy drink that everybody should drink regardless if you are losing weight or not. However, if you are malnourished, full fat milk is the best drink of choice for you. But it is wrong to think that when you drink full fat milk you'll get fat. It actually helps you reach your normal weight and keep you healthy.

Myth: Cholesterol will give you a heart problem, therefore is bad for you
Fact: Not all cholesterol is bad for your body. Low density cholesterol is the one which can block your arteries and possibly cause heart problems in the long run. However, High density cholesterol is good for the building of cells and maintains vital organ functions.

Myth: Alcohol is really bad for you
Fact: Alcohol is not at all bad for you it is excessive consumption which makes it bad especially for the liver and kidneys. To be able to gain the health benefits of alcohol, you need to consume alcohol with caution. When you do this, you're actually making your heart healthy and your circulation good.

Myth: Overweight and obese people have low metabolism rate
Fact: If you are larger than most people your metabolism is actually high. Low metabolism only happens during starvation and when a person is underweight. If you are overweight, your metabolism is actually high or fast however, you are just consuming more calories than your body can burn.

Myth: Sugar loaded drinks and foods can make you fat
Fact: Again, Sugar can't be blame for Diabetes and being overweight. Sugar once consumed produces energy which you need to keep up with work and activities of the day. It helps you think and concentrate and most of all it keeps you from going hungry all the time. This is a Nutrition Wellness myth which you should not dwell into. Sugar is necessary; all the food we consume is literally changed into sugar for energy.

When it comes to Nutrition Wellness you should be aware of the things that you need to avoid and need to know completely. Understanding your diet and all the necessary nutrients you need will not only keep you healthy but will also help you gain or lose weight effectively.
