Face the Facts: Experts Bust Popular Health Myths

August 17, 2015 2 min read

We scroll through social media posts, read up on recent articles and listen to our friends and family about what is healthy and what is not. We listen because we want to treat our bodies well and live a life of longevity. However, mixed in with all the facts are versions of the facts, and versions of versions of the facts, and ... just flat out lies. It's good to get the scoop on what's real and what information you can toss out so that you don't waste your time, money or brainpower! Here are three myths to note. 1. Drinking your greens is the way to go. drink your greens If you were never into juicing or smoothies in the first place, you'll be happy to know that, contrary to popular belief, it's best to eat your greens! "Blending vegetables and fruit does the job our mouths do in digestion which means that we don’t have to chew them," explains Dr Marilyn Glenville, a nutrition expert and author of Fat Around the Middle: How to Lose That Bulge – For Good. "Of course that means that you might be eating more fruit and vegetables than you would otherwise, but it’s no substitute," she continues. "Though blending your fruit and vegetables into a smoothie is going to be better than juicing it as you blend them whole won’t lose the fibre in the form of pulp, the food is still being processed." 2. Don't eat carbs for dinner. carbs Carbohydrates haven't developed the knowledge to know whether you're eating them at 10am or 10pm. So if you've been told to steer clear of carbs at night because they'll make you gain weight, yet you crave quinoa with your fish, rest assured you're in the clear. "It’s all about the overall calories you take in being less than the amount you’ve burned off," explains Azmina Govinji, state-registered dietician and spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association. 3. It's important to drink eight glasses of water a day. drink water This has been a staple in the health advice world since 1945. But stop trying to keep up, because it's actually better to EAT your water. "Too much water can act like a diuretic and flush your body of what it needs along with toxins," Dr Glenville explains. Instead, drink a few glasses throughout the day to stay hydrated, and eat water-rich foods like cucumbers, celery, watermelon and strawberries.
