Nutrition Myths

Have you ever heard a friend or relative say something like “this is vegan so it’s good for you” or “don’t worry, it’s fat free” some other over-generalization about foods?

Since it happens all of the time I thought I would share some of the most common nutrition myths and link to a legit article that will tell you more if you want more info.

  1. Raw foods are always healthier than cooked foods. – Not necessarily true.
  2. All processed foods are bad. – What about baby carrots and apple slices.
  3. Natural foods are always healthier. – Sometimes natural foods like honey are still better in moderation.
  4. All sugar should be eliminated. – Added sugars, are unnecessary and could be avoided.
Live Good,
