The Inside Truth About 5 Widespread Dieting Myths

8/26 15:55:21

     If a myth gets passed a lot by lots of sources in no time it gets to be an absolute truth. Some myths are harmless and some can be very harmful to your health. Here are 5 of the most common dieting myths and the truth about them:

1) Sugar has more calories than honey: many suggest that you can replace sugar with honey in your diet. While a spoon of sugar contains 15 calories a spoon of honey contains 65 calories. As you can see the truth is that honey contains much more calories than sugar. But still it is far better to eat honey instead of sugar because the sweetening force of honey is far greater than that of sugar which means you need to use less to obtain the same sweet flavor.

2) The skin of a fruit is the part that is richest in vitamins: it is a common idea that the majority of vitamins and minerals found in fruits is concentrate in their peel. The truth is that the greatest concentration of vitamins and minerals is found in the pulp of the fruit not in its peel. But you should think twice before throwing away the skin. The peel also contains vitamins and minerals. Why throw them away when you can give them to your body.The fibers found in the skin help your digestive system work better and prevent constipation.

3)You get overweight because of fat: Salt isn't fattening if you consume it alone, but it leads to water retention. Your body needs about 4 grams of salt each day, but the majority of us consume about 10 grams of salt daily. Just 2 grams of the 10 come from the salt you personally add in your food. numerous foods you eat contain loads of salt in them. You shouldn't stop eating salt and salty foods thinking that because of it you are gaining weight. Your body has its own mechanisms of defense. After eating salty foods you get really parched. The water you drink is used by your body to wash out out all the excess salts it doesn't need. You can still add salt in your food to make it taste good.

4) Lemons are the best source of vitamin C:From 100 grams of lemons you can get roughly 75 mg of vitamin C but there are vegetables and fruits that contain even more vitamin C. Some of them are cabbage, dill, blackberries and much more... The best source of vitamin C are rose hips which contain over 200 mg of vitamin C per 100 grams. The pulp of rose hips is especially full of vitamin C. Related to this myth is the belief that sour green fruits are rich in vitamin C. The truth is that the fruits that get loads of sun exposure and are ripened and sweet contain much more vitamin C than green sour fruits.

5) Frozen vegetables contain fewer vitamins and minerals than fresh vegetables: this is so false. Frozen vegetables, because they are frozen rapidly after they are harvested, suffer a smaller amount of vitamin and mineral losses. Fresh vegetables, which are kept for days in crates for days, get damaged and start to lose the vitamins and minerals they contain. If you have a garden and you have just picked the fruits and vegetables you are eating the situation is very different then.
