Myths about your foods you must stop believing, according to expert nutritionists!

Many men and women, have always sought to be socially accepted throughout the ages, more even though with the meal and exercise they can get it, but this desire and the salutary lesson the internet world has collaborated in the creation of multiple beliefs in this regard.

As it is well-known also is a little worrying considering the amount of information that is shared without any verifiable evidence. In addition, in matters of nutrition, we must remember that we are all different and that diets or eating patterns that serve one person, may not be effective for another.

Metabolism and physical activity, as well as chronic and genetic diseases possible, play a very important role when it comes to which your doctor or nutritionist prescribe you a certain type of diet.

For now, we want to tell you about four myths of nutrition which according to Julie Upton, doctor and author of the book Appetite for Health, must take into account. The foregoing told it is the PopSugar website in a special interview.

Greek mythology part I

Muscles can become fat (and fat into muscles) with correct training

Mitos Dieta

Both tissues behave in completely different ways and it is impossible that one can become the other. What happens when you exercise is that your percentage of low fat and your muscle mass increases, thus making you see more muscular. In the same way, if you eat unhealthy way and not exercise, which increase your level of fat, independent of whether you lose muscle mass or not, will you see less marked and larger.

Greek mythology part II

Detoxify body with natural juices: there are many people who believe we detoxify the body through juices and shakes constantly and even though I think that it is good to drink (and that they are delicious), the truth is that your body can already be detoxify only.

In addition, there is no verifiable evidence that can prove that follow this kind of practice will help you to lose weight. If you like smoothies, forward, drink them, but do it because you find them delicious, not because you expect to “detoxify” your body or lose a few pounds.

Greek mythology part III

Negative calorie foods: the subject of negative calories has also become very popular in recent times. It basically refers to the belief that the body uses a lot of calories in digesting them, neutralizing its caloric content. For example, if the food X has 30 calories and your body using 60 calories to process, then you won 30 negative calories.

Clearly this is not real since the body tends to use only between 10% to 20% of the calories of a food processing it. Celery, for example, can have 7 calories per serving, but your body will not use more than 1.4 calories in digesting it

Greek mythology part IV

Sea salt, elixir of eternal life: Although sea salt or Himalayan pink salt, has become fashionable, the truth is that its nutritional content is not very different from the of table salt.

A spoonful of both varieties is still giving 2,300 milligrams of sodium for every teaspoon, and both deliver the same amount of minerals. Maybe one is more delicious, such as with the subject of smoothies, but once again, none is superior to the other in nutritional terms.
