The ever-increasing obesity, diabetes and heart diseases have given prominence to much talked about nourishment plans. Many of these plans, however are purely commercial, and of little significance to your healthy cause. In other cases, misinformation is carried forward because of non-experts and amateur bloggers. It is vital to make distinction between myths and real parameters of nourishment plans.
Myth-Buster #1: Eating before bed is harmful. Not really.
Some people crave for food at night, but hesitate to eat a single slice of bread. Why? Because someone told them that eating at night is not right. You won’t have to make it a matter of life and death. The idea is to keep your body fueled all throughout the day, consuming smaller meals. This will keep your metabolism kicked-in, which compels the body to burn more fats. The very same principle applies late at night. Eating calorie-rich cake would be equally harmful as eating it at day time. So next time when you face a craving, you can conveniently eat apple or even a small-portioned meal.
Myth-Buster #2: Sucrose is equally bad. Wrong.
An average apple contains less than 100 calories. A banana contains 100 calories top. On the contrary, a pack of pancakes would contain more than 500. Fruits are not half the “fatty” compared to refined, factory-made sweets. There should be a fine line between fruits and such products. This myth needs to addressed because not only it adds to needless stress for the person avoiding fruits, but also deprives her of essential nutrition fruits are to give.
Myth-Buster #3: Protein-shakes are equally bad as steroids. They are different.
Some nourishment plans for bodybuilders tend to suggest that always rely upon “natural” sources of protein. Although nothing bad here, it is wrong to term protein shakes harmful if taken accurately. The latter can prove much more effective because people are unable to take required amount of calories buy eating a few eggs, or 100 grams of chicken. In fact, bodybuilding experts suggest that if not taken immediately, protein is much less effective for building muscles. It is for these reasons, shakes are handy to provide timely protein intake. The crucial point is: If one does intense work-outs for hours, and if the results are not positive, the person is deemed to be demotivated. Protein shakes ensure how efforts are turned into results.
Myth-Buster #4: Crash-diets are fast way to lose weight. Yes, and fastest to gain it back ultimately
Some nourishment plans focus on very minimum intake of calories. The idea is to make you “go on diet” and lose weight by starving. Although you might drop the first few calories with ease, the ultimate result can be dreadful. By no chance, you will be keeping the calories-intake as low as this. At a later point when you consume your normal amount, you are likely to gain back all the “lost” weight. This can be very demotivating and harmful for body due to abrupt changes in food habits. The only optimum way to lose weight is by adapting positive nutriounal changes in diet.
