"Top 11 Biggest Lies of Mainstream Nutrition"

This is an excellent article that I found on Facebook, thanks to a friend. It is really worth a thorough read. It helps dispel a lot of the misinformation that a lot of us were brought up believing.  I can also attest, through personal eating experience and experimentation, that when I eat (for the most part) as this article suggests, I feel SO MUCH BETTER!! My personal struggle is with number 10.

The entire article can be found right here at "AuthorityNutrition.com"

A brief synopsis can be found below:

1. Eggs Are Unhealthy        

Bottom Line: Eggs do not cause heart disease and are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. Eggs for breakfast can help you lose weight.

2. Saturated Fat is Bad For You

Bottom Line: Newer studies have proven that saturated fat does not cause heart disease. Natural foods that are high in saturated fat are good for you.  

3. Everybody Should be Eating Grains

Bottom Line: Grains are relatively low in nutrients compared to other real foods like vegetables. The gluten grains in particular may lead to a variety of health problems. 

4. Eating a Lot of Protein is Bad For Your Bones and Kidneys

Bottom Line: Eating a high protein diet is associated with improved bone health and a lower risk of fracture. High protein also lowers blood pressure and improves diabetes symptoms, which should lower the risk of kidney failure.

5. Low-Fat Foods Are Good For You

Bottom Line: Low-fat foods are usually highly processed products loaded with sugar, corn syrup or artificial sweeteners. They are extremely unhealthy.

7. Carbs Should Be Your Biggest Source of Calories

Bottom Line: The low-fat, high-carb diet is a miserable failure and has been proven repeatedly to be vastly inferior to lower-carb, higher-fat diets.

8. High Omega-6 Seed and Vegetable Oils Are Good For You

Bottom Line: Humans need to get Omega-6 and Omega-3 fats in a certain ratio. Eating excess Omega-6 from seed oils raises your risk of disease.

9. Low Carb Diets Are Dangerous

Bottom Line: Low-carb diets are the healthiest, easiest and most effective way to lose weight and reverse metabolic disease. It is a scientific fact.

10. Sugar is Unhealthy Because it Contains “Empty” Calories

Bottom Line: The harmful effects of sugar go way beyond empty calories. Sugar wreaks havoc on our metabolism and sets us up for weight gain and many serious diseases.

11. High Fat Foods Will Make You Fat

In fact, diets that are high in fat (and low in carbs) cause much greater fat loss than diets that are low in fat
