15 myths about food

In the supermarket you can read various articles and not just by police with the press. Each of the Declaration on the food was the result of millions of dollars invested through which such a product is declared safe for use

You'll find a long list of food that promises to change your life and to improve. flatten your stomach, buttocks and lower with all this make you happier person. In fact, most of these foods cause the opposite effect.Learn how to distinguish truth from advertising and might eventually drive their habits that prevent you from losing weight.

These are the most common myths:

First Corn syrup with a high percentage of fructose is worse than white sugar

That white sugar is not good for your health and know the birds on a branch. The less sugar you eat, the better.However, if the corn syrup worse than sugar, but is subject to discussion.
Here's what you need to know:
The syrup and sugar are composed of a mixture of two sugars - fructose and glucose. This means that your body will not be able to discern the difference between these two species, it was just sugar. "Sin" of enriched fructose syrup is that it is too cheap and that it therefore added to all sorts of things - from cereals to ketchup and salad dressing industry. It can affect your health in a way that is not fully clarify the scientific community.

Is it good to avoid the syrup in the diet? Absolutely! It is best to remove all the unnecessary sugars. However, the introduction of corn syrup as a nutritional enemy number one is actually an exaggeration.

Second Sea salt is healthier than ordinary

Common salt is used on a daily basis is of stone and contains roughly about 2,300 mg of sodium per teaspoon coffee. Sea salt is obtained by evaporating sea water and also contains the same amount of sodium as the two species seem almost identical. Those who advocate the use of salt stress that it has other ingredients such as magnesium and iron but, in fact, these minerals are present in negligible quantities.

To enter a significant amount needs to be literally sodium overdose. Moreover, the ordinary is always iodine, which plays an important role in regulating hormones. Sea salt will not provide this important mineral. The conclusion is as follows: replace the stone with sea salt will bring you anything in particular. More you lose a few dinars more while you purchase.

Third Energy drinks are less harmful than soft

Energy drinks are intended to supply B vitamins, herbal extracts and amino acids to strengthen. MeÄ‘utim you, what your body will be best remembered (especially your waist) is the sugar in these drinks. An average can of "cost" you 280 calories that come from pure sugar, which is about 80 calories more than cans of "Pepsi".

Moreover, the University of Maryland study showed that energy drinks are about 11 percent more harmful to your teeth than regular soda. Here are the secrets that producers of energy drinks are hiding from you: the only thing that has proven to act on energy drinks is caffeine. If you need energy to spare sugar and drink a cup of coffee.

One study showed that rats take a lot more calories when their meals spices artificial sweeteners. Try to be disciplined by carbonated water seasoned with a little lemon juice or herbal tea and replace all the time and drinks.

5th The low fat content in food is good for you

When it comes to marketing, the term "low fat" is a synonym for "replete with salt and cheap carbohydrates." To eject the fat peanut butter for example, manufacturers add maltodextrin, quickly digestible carbohydrate.

That you certainly will not help you lose weight. In one study from 2008. proven that people who over a two year study were based on diets with reduced carbohydrate intake, they managed to lose weight as much as 62 percent more than those who were thrown out Fat.

6th Food "no trans fatty acids" are indeed such

Companies are permitted to put on a declaration that their product has a zero grams of trans fatty acids, even when it contains 0.5 grams per serving. Because of the increasing number of patients suffering from heart problems, the World Health Organization advised people to keep trans fatty acid intake in the lowest level - a maximum of one gram to 2,000 calories.

If you have a kitchen full of products with 0.5 grams of trans fatty acids, may enter more than the prescribed maximum. It is best to avoid further products that are composed of partially hydrogenated oil label (in translation - trans fats).

7th Foods labeled "natural" is a healthier

No serious efforts of world governments to impose controls on the display the label "natural" foods in the declarations.

Such labels are placed on all products - from flips to soft drinks. While it is true that the origin of most natural ingredients, it should be noted that each of them passes through a series of chemical processes by which he lost (if it ever possessed) all the positive properties. Worst of all is that this will draw a name to buy plain "junk" food.

8th Yolk cholesterol increase

Egg yolks contain cholesterol, but studies have shown that the nutritional cholesterol has almost nothing to do with that is harmful to your bloodstream.

But here's the catch: most people think of milk chocolate, which contains more fat than cocoa. You need to force a dark chocolate and with the higher percentage of cocoa.

11th Muesli is a healthy

It is true that the common oat, and oatmeal. However, there are muesli grains which are coated with sugar and baked to make them crispy. The amount of fat and sugar that is added to the ready-mixed muesli manufacturers are usually secret, which means that buying a "pig in a poke."

12th Bananas are the best source of potassium

Your body uses potassium to keep the nerves and muscles efficient and adequate intake may cancel the bad effects of sodium on blood pressure. One study from 2009. showed that the 2:1 ratio of potassium and sodium in the diet can halve the chances of getting heart disease.

However, since they consume large amounts of salt each day, it is impossible to enter naturally twice as much potassium. One banana has 422 mg potassium and 105 calories. The following foods have almost the same amount of potassium, but far fewer calories:

- Potatoes, half of medium-sized tubers, 80 calories
- Apricot, five fruit trees, 80 calories
- Watermelon, one cup, 55 calories
- Broccoli, onion, 50 calories
- Sun dried tomato, a quarter cup, 35 calories

Much more than just strengthen immunity, vitamin C is an antioxidant that plays an important role in metabolism. It tightens the skin and stimulates construction of collagen, improves mood and promotes weight loss.

However, since the body can neither create nor store this vitamin, it needs to be constantly typing. Orange is perhaps best known source of vitamin C, but not the best.

An orange has about 70 calories and just as micrograms of vitamin C. There are five sources that will provide much more:

- Papaya, three quarters of a cup, 50 calories
- Broccoli, one cup, 40 calories
- Strawberries, seven pieces, 40 calories
- Broccoli, half a head, 25 calories
- Red pepper, half a piece, 20 calories

14th Organic is always better

Often, but not always. Organic products are nutritionally identical to their "splashed" equivalents. Exposure to pesticides, however, is associated with increased risk of obesity.

However, many kinds of fruits and vegetables have very low levels of pesticides, such as onions. The safe foods include avocados, sweet corn and pineapple.

Generally, fruits and vegetables with thick peels are safe, regardless of the method of cultivation, while celery, peaches, apples and blueberries, should you buy organic food in the shops.

15th Meat is bad

Pork, beef and lamb are the very best sources of complete protein, a Danish study has found that a diet consisting of 25 percent of the calories of protein origin can help you lose two times more weight than if you stick to low intake.

Then, the meat is rich in vitamin B12, which is located exclusively in foods of animal origin. He is one of the essential vitamins it helps the body to decode DNA and builds red blood cells.

British researchers have found that an adequate intake of protein slows the aging brain. There is no reason to be concerned or for heart disease, because it is proven that meat as sausages and salami shall mean the threat of blood vessels.

Unprocessed, one that is smoked, cured or chemically preserved, poses no risk to the organism.
