5 Food Myths Making You Gain Weight

We understand that you have spent a lot of time unmasking health imposters. But it is true that many word-of-mouth myths that drive our nutritional decision-making, often in the wrong direction. We are here to bust few food myths for you.

Myth: Sea salt is a healthier version of common salt.

Fact: Traditional table salt is regularly fortified with iodine, which plays an important role in regulating hormones in our body. Sea salt, on the other hand, gives you virtually zero iodine.

Myth: Energy drinks are less harmful than soda.

Fact: The only proven, significant energy boost comes from caffeine. Energy drinks and soda are equally harmful. Energy drinks contain large amounts of sugar.

Myth: Foods labeled "natural" are healthier.

Fact: Packaged foods can never be natural because of the presence of preservatives. Also, they go through so many processes that nothing remains natural till you get the by product. The worst part is, you're likely paying a premium price for common junk food.

Myth: You can eat as much as you want as long as it's healthy.

Fact: Avocados, oatmeal, nuts, and their creamy, delicious butters are indeed healthy, but are they low in calories, they are not. Nutritious or not, portion size counts with every food.

Myth: You'll burn more fat if you don't eat before a workout.

Fact: Without the proper fuel, you won't be able to work out for as long or hard as you need to if you want to see a difference in your body. What's worse, fasted workouts can cause low blood sugar and lightheadedness, which can be dangerous if you sweat.
