Set up your nutrition for maximum results.
Here are some of the biggest nutrition lies – exposed:
Say no to egg yolks
Excluding egg yolks from your diet is wrong and based on the misconception that dietary cholesterol, found in the yellows, leads to spikes in blood cholesterol which in turn clogs your arteries and hurt your heart.
The truth is – whole eggs are loaded with protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals.
Shun night time carbs
Will eating carbohydrates at night really lead to more weight gain?
The truth is – eating an excess of carbs at any time of the day can cause the scale to move in the wrong direction during periods of inactivity.
Drop red meat
Will eating red meat raise your risk of cardiovascular disease or diabetes?
The truth is – red meat is incredibly nutritious as it is loaded with vitamins, minerals, quality proteins and healthy fats that are important for the body and brain.
Fat makes you fat
Eating fat won’t make you fat.
The truth is – despite fat having more calories per gram than protein or carbohydrates, eating more fat does not actually make people fat.
Cut back sodium
We are constantly being told to reduce sodium in order to reduce blood pressure.
The truth is – there is no evidence that healthy people need to limit their sodium intake. While it is true that sodium can cause elevated blood pressure it is a contributing risk factor and not necessarily a cause of disease.
