Myths About Our Eating Habits

Mar 12, 2008
Fuelling up with the wrong nutrients can affect how well your body performs and your overall fitness and health. Even though healthy eating is important, here are myths that hinder your performance if you are foolish enough listen to them.

Myth: Work out on an empty stomach. That rumbling noise in your stomach is trying to tell you something the noise is produced for a reason! It says you are forcing your body to run without any fuel. Before you exercise or do any physical activity, always eat a light snack such as an apple.

Myth: Rely on energy bars and drinks. Although fine these are every once in a while, they do not deliver all the antioxidants you need. Fruits and vegetables are loaded in vitamins, minerals, fluid, and fibre and probably cost a lot less!

Myth: Skip breakfast. Never a good idea, since breakfast starts the day. Your body needs fuel as soon as possible to get up and running to full potential. Without it, you are likely to be hungry throughout the day and probably end up snacking on not so healthy foods.

Myth: Low carb. diets. Your body needs carbohydrates for muscles and the storing of energy. Too few carbs are most definitely not good for you.

Myth: Eat what you want. Exercising does not give you a pass to eat anything you want. Everyone needs the same nutrients whether they exercise or not, but eating a healthy diet may lower cancer risks, cholesterol, and many other health risks and gives an all round feeling of wellness.

Myth: Too many calories. Losing weight does involves calories. However, losing it too quickly is never safe and it would seem in many cases that this weight tends to be regained just a quickly. Aim to lose 1 - 2 pounds a week. This will should ensure that you are getting enough calories to keep your body operating smoothly.

Myth: Soda and alcohol are okay. Water, milk, and juice are best for active people. You should drink often; do not let thirst be an indicator. By the time you are thirsty, your body is already running low. Soda and alcohol can rob the body of essential nutrients and in the case of alcohol it can cause dehydration.

Changing how you eat is always a great step towards healthy eating, and it will affect how well your body performs. The healthier you eat, you better you will feel. No matter your age, healthy eating is something to should strive for. Give it a chance. In no time, you will see just how much it can change your life - for the better
