3 Diet Myths You Should Ignore

What do Nutrition and Greek History have in common?

They’re both filled with

  • myth,
  • legend,
  • and bad stories.

There is also a lot of scaremongering going on too.

In this article, I’ll put on my Mythbusters hat on and show you why these 3 common myths deserve to go in the trash.

Myth #1: “You Should Eat A Low Fat Diet”

Picture this:
  • You’re in a food paradise.
  • Every plate is filled with wholesome, tasty foods that you just love.
  • They smell amazing.
  • The ingredients are all completely natural.
  • And your mouth is watering just thinking about them.

Then chemicals slowly begin to replace all of that goodness...

Pure, ripe Tomato’s become factory made flavourings. Rich buttery sauces become thin, tasteless soups. Your strong, flavourful cheeses suddenly become flat, lifeless lobs of yellowed tofu.

That is what happens when you eat a low fat diet.

The nutrition and taste – from the fats within those foods – is taken away and replaced with a manmade substance.

There is no longer an argument that saturated fats cause heart disease. But, there is a lot to show the impact of ingesting chemicals on the body.

So when you next think of eating a tin of low fat beans, remember this:

Myth #2: “Eating Late at Night Makes You Fat”

John Kiefer blew this myth out of the water years ago.

In fact he’s built two diet plans, Carb Nite and Carb Backloading from eating ‘cheat’ foods anywhere from early evening to late at night.

  • The science being that eating carbs late at night makes your natural Growth Hormone release later in the night.
  • Which leads to it releasing when you’re in a deeper, more restful sleep.

That means you burn more fat by eating late at night.

There are of course different methods surrounding this. But, the point is – eating late at night is no longer the enemy. It might just be your friend.

Myth #3: “Eggs Will Raise Your Cholesterol”

Also known as the “Eggs are Bad For Your Heart” Myth.


Secondly, they have an impact on your cholesterol. If, in fact, any at all.

It doesn’t matter how you like your eggs in the morning. The most important thing is it’s safe to eat them to your heart’s content.
