3 Nutrition Myths That Need To Be Debunked

Losing weight and burning fat is hard enough.

Last thing anyone needs are a bunch of outdated myths distorting what works and what doesn’t.

Today I want to clear up a few of those myths. I want to make it a little easier for you to burn fat and lean out.

To kick things off I’m going to start with a myth I hear all the time.

Seems people love to talk about food and diets. I don’t think there is ever a time when a group of people get together and diet always comes up.

Everyone has an opinion too. If they didn’t do this diet or that themselves, they at least knew of someone who did. This all of the sudden makes them an expert. Here is what they often say you need to eat to get lean.

1. You can only eat this

Egg whites for breakfast.

A shake for lunch.

Chicken and broccoli for supper. Followed up with rice cakes for dessert.

No wonder a person can’t stay on a diet. If that’s what it took to lose weight no one would be lean. It’d be next to impossible to stick with.

Seems like it’s been since the dawn of time that people have been preaching low fat bland meal plans. You’d hear them claim that there’s no other way, or that’s what it takes to drop those stubborn pounds of belly fat.

Thankfully that’s not true.

There’s no question. It’ll work. You’ll lose weight with a diet like that. But it’s totally not necessary.

You can have your cake and eat it too. Or any other food that you love.

 Bland, boring, and tasteless food isn’t necessary.

 2. Fats Are Fating

If I’d have to guess where this notion of bland food comes from. I’d have to say it’s rooted in the myth that fats make you fat.

Because so much flavour of food comes from fat you’ll be happy to know that eating fats doesn’t instantly turn to fat.

What does make you gain weight is eating too many calories. If you eat too much fat it will turn to fat. But the same applies to any food. You could eat too much chicken and broccoli and it would turn to fat. Though, I have to admit. It would be difficult to eat too much chicken and broccoli.

Point is excess calories cause your waistline to expand. Not any particular food or macronutrient.

Don’t stay away from fat. They’re a necessary part of a health diet plan.

Avoiding fats will lead to a whole host of problems…

  •  fat soluble vitamins deficiency
  • hair falls out
  • skin becomes dry

Now here are two that really hurt:

  • loss of libido
  • testosterone levels  drop

To add insult to injury. Eliminating fats may cause you to put on weight.

If you’re already suffering from any of those side effects there’s a natural way to boost your testosterone and libido. Something worth doing because low testosterone levels make it more difficult to build muscle and burn fat.

You can get all the details here…


All in all it’s bad news.

Fats are a necessary part of a healthy diet.


Ok. I know what you must be thinking…


3. Saturated Is Beyond Bad

But saturated fat is bad though.


Well. Not so fast.

There was a time when products with high levels of trans fats were to be avoided like the plague.

Back in the day meats, dairy, eggs and some plant based oils  like coconut oil were considered pure evil. They’d send you straight to the ER. Or so the mafia media would have you believe.

Get this…

there’s never been any evidence between the correlation with those foods and all the negative myths portrayed in the media.

Some level of saturated fats have many great positive benefits. Like production of certain hormones.

Things are slowly communing around. The once evil coconut oil is now labeled a health food. And rightly so.

Now fish oils are recommended too as part of a healthy diet.


Not all fats are good.

You do have to watch out for are those man made trans fat poisons.

Those artificial oils can do a nasty number on you. It’s important to know which are good and which are poison.

Most people aren’t aware that there are good and bad trans fats. The good can help you burn fat and build muscle. Even prevent cancer.

On the other hand the bad trans fats. The artificial stuff. Has been shown to play a role in diabetes, heart disease, and weight gain.

Slowly artificial trans fats are being banned from our food, but there are many grocery items that still contain these deadly toxins.
