Marketing and food gurus have been generated certain myths in the popular consciousness that have little certain about healthy eating. Ranging from beliefs regarding certain foods burn fat, lose weight, remove hunger, fat or not, among other things, are around these certain foods and cause the diet of people is not balanced.
In this and in a note below see what are the most common myths about healthy eating.
Whole foods are not fattening:
False, whole grains and flours have the same calories than refined; the difference is that the former contains more amounts of minerals and fiber while others do not.
The same with the products prepared from flour or grains, for example cookies are not saved and even have more dietary fat than water.
Salads in fast food outlets are a healthy choice
Not all that glitters is gold, because of the dressings that are usually added to salads in fast food, they end up with too much salt and fat, not counting the salads come with chicken. For example, a Big Mac has 540 calories and 1,040 milligrams of salt and a chicken salad with dressing 530 calories and 1,260 mg of salt.
0% slimming foods, and healthful
There is no food with zero calories so that everything that is consumed in excess fat, on the other hand we must not believe that everything is healthy 0% by removing the fat from food producers have to add flavor and chemical give taste to food, so many times these products may be more harmful than common.
Cookies are less fattening than bread
Grave error! Everybody thinks that bread is the enemy number one diet and adjudicates the extra kilos, so it is opting for the cookies instead of a simple slice of bread. The truth is that cookies are fat in their composition, resulting in more calories than ordinary bread, cookies are 420 Kcal per 100 grams, while bread 280 kcal.
As we have previously seen the bread is not as bad as you think, but the excesses are never good, you have to understand that bread is not responsible for the extra kilos, but what you eat along with it such as cheese, sausage, butter … these foods are high in fat and therefore very high in calories.
