Diets - Myth vs. Truth

Guest Author - Rose Thomason

There are so many different versions of health advice out there, itís hard to really know which are facts and which are myths. Is candy really bad for you? Should you eat more veggies and less meat? Here is a simple guide to help you rule out all the myths and get straight to the facts so you can get started with a new and healthier diet. Good Luck!


Myth: Exercise and Cardiovascular activity can prolong your life.
Truth: Your heart is only good for so many beats. Eventually, like all things, it will wear out. Donít waste it on exercise. Prolong your life and take a nap!


Myth: Itís healthier to eat more fruits and veggies and less meat.
Truth: When you eat beef, youíre eating cow. And what do cows eat? Hay and corn (veggies) and field grass (leafy greens). So really, when you eat a big juicy steak, youíre getting all the nutrition you need from vegetables. Eat chicken if you need more grains in your diet.


Myth: You should limit your alcohol intake.
Truth: Again, letís look at what alcohol really is. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine. And beer is made out of grain. Drink up!


Myth: Calculating your body/fat ratio can be very complicated. And confusing.
Truth: Nope, not confusing or complicated at all. If you have a body and you have body fat, the ratio is one to one. If you have to bodies, the ratio is two to one, etc.


Myth: Fried foods are unhealthy.
Truth: Fried foods are not bad for you at all. Most are fried in vegetable oil. Why would more vegetables be bad for you?


Myth: Sit-ups will help you have a smaller stomach.
Truth: Simply put--sit-ups are a type of exercise. Exercise helps muscles get bigger. Therefore, your stomach will get bigger. Only do sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.


Myth: Chocolate is unhealthy.
Truth: Seriously? Chocolate is made from cocoa beansóanother vegetable! You get it by now, right?


Myth: Swimming is good for your figure.
Truth: If this is true, then explain whales.


Myth: Getting in shape is very important.
Truth: Um, round is a shape isnít it?


Myth: Itís very hard to count calories and keep track of what you eat all day.
Truth: Simple rule to remember-if no one seeís you eating, the calories donít count.


Myth: Candy is not healthy.
Truth: My dr. once said a good way to eat healthy is to fill your plate with colorful food. Greens, yellows, reds..etc. So donít skittles and M&Mís fall into that category?


STRESSED spelled backwards = DESSERTS. The word DIET contains the word DIE. You make the choice.
