Some myths about food are false
According to a physiologist at Eastern Washington University, several very popular myths associated with eating are totally false, and some of the ones she highlighted at a recent meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine in Dallas are:
Eating eggs raises cholesterol, according to the specialist, if consumed in moderation, eggs do not provide enough cholesterol to put our health at risk.
Eating carbohydrates is fattening, according to Repovich, reducing their intake helps to lose weight because it makes us lose fluids, however, eating them in moderation does not directly affect weight gain.
You have to drink two liters of water a day, according to this specialist what we need is to replace the loss of fluids that occurs through breathing and sweating, but this is not necessarily 2 liters of water or the mythical 8 glasses of water a day In addition, part of the liquid can be replaced by eating some other foods.
We need vitamin supplements, according to Repovich, who clarifies that she consumes them, people who eat fruits, vegetables, grains, low-fat dairy in moderation and have an adequate calorie intake are very likely not to need them.
