A nutrition coach has destroyed a bunch of ‘healthy’ food myths

2 min

The Internet is over-run with shady new diets that promise the world. It is natural to wonder what it is that makes them groundbreaking, game changing or revolutionary. The fact is, the number one diet solution continues to be an active lifestyle that gets you burning more calories than you consume. Losing weight is not rocket science, no matter what the “experts” try to tell you. In fact, it might happen to be one of the easiest things to do.

There are two simple ingredients to achieving your weight-loss goals. The first is more exercise, whether it’s a daily run or simply choosing to take the stairs. Second, it means swapping out that high-calorie trash for a balanced diet that keeps you light and energetic.

There’s plenty of on-line trash that claims to have discovered the next best thing when, in truth, they are nowhere as healthy as portrayed. Interestingly, some of the highest-sugar and heaviest-calorie foods are nuts, fruits, juices and other supposedly good foods. So don’t worry if you’ve fallen for the hype around crash diets, it happens to the best of us.

To help bust some of these myths, personal trainer, nutritionist and Men’s Health writer Graeme Tomlinson has published a comparison between supposedly healthy foods and those considered unhealthy. With this, people can easily know exactly what they are eating. So sit back and have your diet assumptions turned upside down.

“The biggest problems that people who are trying to get in shape face are a lack of education and a mirage of false information.” Says Tomlinson. He goes on to say that the best diet plans are “evidence-based. Simple. No B.S.”

So if you’ve been riding the health-fad bandwagon, it’s time to get back to basics and achieve a healthier, happier you. No need to cut out the foods you love or change the lifestyle you enjoy. If you ask me, that is as good as it gets.

Leading a healthy lifestyle is one of the most important things. And, truth is, it all depends on you.

Stay healthy.
